Welcome to Harbour View Care Home

You'll find Harbour View Lodge in a residential area of Whitehaven, Cumbria, overlooking the harbour and town, within easy reach of shops and other amenities.

Here our registered nurses, and care assistants, many who've completed their NVQs in health and social care, provide high quality 24-hour care. We're experienced in looking after people with varied and complex needs, both long term and for short respite stays.

Harbour View Lodge has well laid-out gardens, and residents can enjoy the fresh sea air sitting out here or on the patio. Our communal lounges and dining rooms are bright and airy and enjoy views over the Irish Sea.

All bedrooms are single en-suite, and fitted with a nurse-call system. We love residents to personalise these spaces with mementos from their own homes, and they're welcome to choose their own decor and bedding if they prefer.

Life at Harbour View Care Home

A carer and a resident

We could not have wished for our mam to have spent her final days in the hands of such wonderful staff.

Mrs Pringo, resident at Harbour View Care Home

We think Ken was the most settled and happiest in the past 12 months. Our minds were settled knowing he was so well cared for.

Mrs Violet Fisher, relative of resident at Harbour View Care Home

Everyone treated him with respect and kindness and fairly good humour which I know he appreciated more than words can express. He enjoyed the concert very much and it gave me a good deal of pleasure to see him having such a good laugh!

Mrs Heather Greenop, relative of resident at Harbour View Care Home

Our news

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?

This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.

Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.

Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?

With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.

Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.

Our case studies will focus on:

Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

More information about our intermediate care service and other types of care and support we offer is available on our website.

Northeast-Tea-Dance-December-2016

6 Jan 2017

Residents from 8 Four Seasons care homes in Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they got together for a social afternoon on Wednesday 21st December 2016 at the New Delaval & Newsham Working Men’s Club. They were joined by friends, relatives and staff, and members of the local community.

As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a sing-along session and bingo. There was a range of refreshments served and a chance to take part in a raffle.

Rob Heane, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in Northumberland, said, “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out enjoying themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community. This event is a regular occurrence, and it’s great to see it go from strength to strength each time we run it. Here’s to the next one.”

The afternoon and early evening dances, with a civilised break for tea and refreshments, are coming back into vogue. Before the 1950s, tea dances were a popular way to socialise; however, they declined in the 60s as the club and disco scene emerged. They are now beginning to make a return to popularity, possibly linked to the success of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Story-Telling

15 Dec 2016

Earlier this year Her Majesty the Queen celebrated turning 90.

Here at Four Seasons Healthcare we wanted to put a spotlight on our lovely residents who were also celebrating their 90th year, giving them the opportunity to share their stories with us.

Monty Lister, a resident at Bebington Care Home in Bebington worked on BBC Radio Merseyside for 35 years. This is where his story begins.

“Over my time at Radio Merseyside I interviewed a lot of interesting people. I will always remember my very first interview as it was with David Scott, an Astronaut from Apollo 15. He was the first person to drive a vehicle on the moon! I also had the chance to interview Ronnie Biggs, the infamous train robber. I went and met him in Brazil when he was on the run, which was a bit of a coup. Closer to home Morcambe and Wise were very funny to interview, as was Bob Hope. I met Bing Crosby at Granada TV in Manchester as well as Sir Cliff Richard and Gracie Fields.

I was one of the first people to interview the Beetles in Hume Hall, Port Sunlight before they became famous. I remember how funny they were, especially Paul. I remember Paul being told off by a doorman at Hume Hall for blocking a fire exit, it really was a funny sight.

“I’ve been blessed to have made friends throughout my career with Paul McCartney and Roy Orbison being among my close circle of friends who I regularly shared a cup of tea with. I also had the pleasure of being close friends with Ken Dodd, he even came to my 80th birthday celebrations.”

How time flies when you’re having fun.
