Wonderful care, couldn't have been better.
I would recommend this excellent care home to anyone who has family that need to be looked after by caring understanding professional then this is the place. My mother was failing in her health and we looked all over Coventry for a place where she would be stress pain free and comfortable this place was perfect. We talked to Kerry and her staff and were very happy. Mum passed away there and we were treated with great respect.
The staff are always polite and helpful and keen to do their best. My mother-in-law is always spotless and her room is always immaculate. Both my wife and myself are very happy with the level of care provided.

Here at Four Season’s Health Care we like to provide training and support for all of our colleagues, helping them to continually develop in their career, making them the best teams we can possibly have in our homes.
One avenue of development that we use is our Preceptorship Programme. The Programme supports the newly qualified nurses as they embrace their chosen career path.
The Preceptorship Programme runs regularly across the UK, and it’s yielding some fantastic results for us.
Most recently, 9 candidates completed the programme which included a 2 week residential at Laburnum Court in Salford.
Feedback from the candidates has been very positive as you can see below:
“This course has been fantastic. It’s helped me to build my confidence whilst I’ve been learning on the job. It’s great to put everything we learn into practice straight away.”
“This course is great. The help and support I’ve received along the way has been constant. If I’ve ever been unsure someone has always been happy to help.”
