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

Three funds managed by County Durham Community Foundation will allow the Vane Tempest Bowling Club to replace their out-dated kitchen and enable them to provide in-house cooking for their social events.

The William Leech Fund, Four Seasons Healthcare Fund and Durham AAP Fund, all contributed to the kitchen refurbishment grant of £2,664 which was much-needed as the kitchen no longer complied with health and safety standards.

Established in 1951 and based in Gilesgate, members of the bowling club are mostly from the local community. It provides member with social and competitive bowling and it is a member of Bowls England and Bowls Durham. Members use bowling as a way to keep fit and active, maintain mental well-being and independence. The social side of meeting with similar minded friends is just as important as playing bowls.

The new kitchen will not only provide a facility for social events but will hopefully attract new members and an additional income stream.

Richard Leech, fund holder of the William Leech Fund, who visited the bowling club with Sandra Brown, Regional Manager of Four Seasons Healthcare Fund, commented: “It’s great to see the Club providing these facilities for older people to keep them active and foster new friendships. We have been able to help them in a fairly modest way through our fund and their request was topped up by other funds held by the Community Foundation. They offer an important service to their bowling members and we are delighted to support them.”

Sandra Brown, Regional Manager, added: “This grant fits so well with Four Seasons Healthcare corporate social responsibility. Our purpose is all about supporting older people through our care homes and so it was perfect that we could add to the grant to refurbish the bowling club kitchen - an essential facility for the Club.”

Sheila Chapman, fund manager at County Durham Community Foundation added: “Although our grants are fairly small, they are often vital to grassroots organisations throughout our area of benefit. The Vane Tempest Bowling Club provides such an important resource for local people and we are delighted that these funders have chosen to make this award.”

Ken Simpson, chairman of the Vane Tempest Bowling Club said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant and be able to fit a new kitchen which will mean we can increase our offer to members and potentially attract new ones. Unfortunately the old kitchen was no longer fit for purpose and the refurbishment afforded by these grants mean that we now comply with current health and safety regulations. It’s also great to meet the funders and have them visit our Club.

joke day at care homes

1 Jul 2016

Today, Friday 1st July marks International Joke Day, and here at Four Seasons Health Care we’ll be sharing some of the jokes that have made us chuckle over the years. We’re getting jokes from residents and the care teams, so keep an eye on our social media pages to see the Joke of the Day.

Laughter is the best medicine, and at the end of July, we’ll post the best (and clean) side splitting jokes we’ve been sent.

So whether you’re a fan of a knock, knock joke…

Knock, knock
Who’s there?
A little old lady.
A little old lady who?
I didn’t know you could yodel.

Prefer to quote a comedy legend….

Tommy Cooper 'Two cannibals were eating a clown – one said to the other,
'Does he taste funny to you?'

Or just want to have a good old giggle….

How do you make a tissue dance?
You put a little boogie in it.

What do you call cheese that's not yours?
Nacho cheese!

We’ve got the jokes for you to cheer up your day.
