Welcome to Harrogate Lodge Care Home
You'll find Harrogate Lodge in Chapel Allerton, a cosmopolitan suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshre.
Here we provide different levels of care to suit a range of needs, from residential care to nursing and palliative care.
Our team of registered nurses, senior care assistants and well trained care assistants is supported by GPs, a chiropodist, an optician, tissue-viability nurses, and district nurses.
We're close to shopping amenities, street cafes, and Roundhay Park with its lake and Tropical World. There are large gardens around the home with a patio area for people to enjoy the fresh air.
All bedrooms are en-suites, decorated to a high standard and have 24-hour nurse-call systems; some enjoy views over the gardens. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more homely.

Eileen Dunlop, Head of Human Resource and Training for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland and Wales, is in the running for the Royal College of Nursing Council elections to become a representative for Northern Ireland. The Royal College of Nursing hold these elections each year to give candidates the chance to ensure members’ voices are heard and have an influence on policy.
Eileen has held various nursing leadership roles for 24 years of her career and is eager to develop further relations within this sector. She told us “As I’m currently Head of Human Resources and Training, I have been instrumental in developing good relations between our organisation and the RCN. I believe that independent sector nurses should have the support of a representative organisation. I am eager to support diversity within nursing and I will take every opportunity to ensure the voice of all nurses is heard”.
For further information on the elections, please visit Royal College of Nursing.
Voting can only be done if you are a nurse member of the Royal College of Nursing.
Nurse members will have received the ballot papers which need to be returned to the Electoral Reform Services by Monday 9th November.
Good luck Eileen, from all at Four Seasons Health Care.

The team at Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds recently made a special wish come true for a resident. Garry Clements has been a resident at Harrogate Lodge for a number of years and has built strong relationships with the team. It was his dream to see his Grand Daughter get married – this was all made possible by the kindness and dedication of two care assistants.
Towards the end of 2014, Garry was given just days to live but the team helped him on his road to recovery. With his health problems, Garry never thought it would be possible for him to attend his Grand Daughter, Deborah’s wedding. However, senior care assistants - Roz Studholme and Eilidh Murdoch, made it their mission to ensure Garry was able to attend the ceremony and surprise all the guests with his special appearance.
Sure enough, Roz and Eilidh accompanied Garry to the ceremony which was held late August 2015, where he was able to share the heart-warming moment his Grand Daughter tied the knot. “It was a huge surprise for everyone to see Garry there waiting for Deborah to arrive” Audrey, Garry’s wife told us, “It was a day of happiness and emotion. Garry smiled the whole time; it was as if he knew how special the day was”.
Both Roz and Eilidh said, “The day will go down as one of the most memorable for us. I felt like I was doing something really worthwhile. It was very emotional – to see the smile on Audrey’s face was priceless”.
Sue Green, Home Manager, explained “This is what it’s all about – everything we do is to improve our residents’ lives. So many members of our team go above and beyond the call of duty; I am really proud to have both Roz and Eilidh as part of our wonderful team at Harrogate Lodge. When we saw the photographs from the day, we all needed a box of tissues! It was such a lovely gesture”.

Gary Cousins, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse at Four Seasons Health Care NI, is running an Infection Protection and Control day for nursing link staff at a number of Four Seasons care homes today, 17th September 2015.
The focus of the day is to improve the effectiveness of the link role, and to drive quality improvements in day to day nursing practice. Four Seasons are delighted to have the involvement of Rose Gallagher, Infection Control Adviser from the Royal College of Nursing as part of the day. Rose is running a workshop called ‘build a link person’ which asks link staff to assess their capabilities and limitations in communicating with and influencing others.
Other focuses of the day will be on ‘using clinical audits effectively - quality improvement versus quality assurance’ and ‘A Clostridium Difficile outbreak- what did we learn?’.
To read the blog of the day click here. A short podcast interview with Gary and Rose will follow the day to give a brief explanation of why the training was put together, how the collaborative working will benefit both Four Seasons and the Royal College of Nursing, and other key learnings.
