Welcome to Heywood Court Care Home
You'll find Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood, in the borough of Rochdale, Lancashire.
Here we provide care around the clock, including general nursing, residential care, and specialised nursing and residential care for people with dementia.
We also provide respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the Home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Heywood Court Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences and we have a full and varied calendar of pastimes, diversions and outings.
We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly, and there's always something going on from quizzes to musical events. We also organise regular trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum, and we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room.
We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time, and enjoy catering for residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
my mum was in another care home in heywood. She got out of there and was found on the patio, consequently she was very ill. I decided to move herto, heywood court, what a good choice I made. when she first moved in the doctor came to see her and said it was the end of life. The staff nursed her round the clock and now she is 100% better, unfortunatly she has lost the use of her legs. I couldnt ask for better care and would recommend heywood court 100%. All the staff from the cleaners to the carers are all great with the residents.
Unfortunately my mum Lilian died last week, I was with her at the time along with two of the carers, they were excellent, we were asked if my mum's health deteriorated would we like her to go to hospital? She was 93 years old & this was her home, so of course we wanted her to stay here, so glad we did, a lovely room & in the end my mum was very peaceful before she died. her health had not been very good for a year or two but all the staff at Heywood court took great care of her.
Trying to avoid using names but please thank the two girls that were on duty on Thursday 11th oct at 19:30. they were great! Once again THANK-YOU.
We moved my Grandmother to this home in July 2012. The family felt that the two previous care homes that she lived in gave poor quality of care. Staff at Heywood Court have provided excellent care to my Grandmother and the atmosphere in the home is very warm and welcoming. My Grandmother greatly improved over the first few weeks and it was lovely to see her being well cared for by the staff. Staff keep family informed of any changes and are very supportive to residents and their families. I also like the fact that this home seems to have more staff than other homes which gives you confidence that they can meet the needs of the residents.
If all care homes were like Heywood Court then no one would need to worry about getting dementia and having to live in a care home.... Other care homes should aim to have care and standards like here.
The staff at Heywood Court are wonderful. They make mum feel like a queen and treat her with such respect as well. They ensure families are kept up to date with everything that's going on with their family member.
I am happy with the care at Heywood Court. The home is a very good standard. The staff do an excellent job. Very friendly and helpful, music playing throughout the day, tea, coffee, juices and cakes in the afternoon before evening meal, all are excellent turned out, clean no smells, everybody happy. I would recommend this care home to everybody. Lots of activities, parties, Christmas, birthday parties, dancing when they bring entertainment in everybody joins in. Most of all my mum is happy.
Good care provided. very clean and tidy care home, comfortable lounges for residents and visitors. Medication could be better managed. Resident are kept in a clean condition.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Angela Clarke, Regional Manager for Greater Manchester has been crowned Regional Manager of the Year for the North West of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Angela demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including the individual demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and the ability to prioritise the day to day challenges of the role. This individual has supported their homes and helped them to achieve the company’s strategic priorities whilst managing external stakeholders and keeping special resident experiences at the centre of everything they do.
Angela was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Angela is a forward thinking, innovative, inspirational leader. She demonstrates a high level of commitment to all her homes. Angela’s strength and determination helps her to guide her teams. She always goes that extra mile to listen, support, problem solve and find solutions that work. Her professionalism has no bounds and reiterates that our main purpose is to provide the best possible care we can.”
As the winner for the North West of England, Angela is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North West of England, said: “Angela is a very supportive Regional Manager who always gives all of her best. She is well respected by her team and her peers. She has a natural ability to build her team and find solutions to problems which can be difficult, whilst multi-tasking her day to day job. It’s those extra few minutes that Angela will find for her team that has helped her to be a stabilizing force in her region. Well done Angela!”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
