alzheimersday

21 Aug 2015

Four Seasons Health Care homes across the UK are preparing for World Alzheimer's Day on 21 September 2015. The day is part of the fourth global World Alzheimer’s Month which aims to raise awareness and challenge stigma, and focus on the great work going on all over the world to fight dementia.

The theme of this years’ World Alzheimer's Day 2015 is Remember Me and focusses on helping people to learn to spot the signs of dementia, but also not to forget about loved ones who are living with dementia, or those who may have passed away. In keeping with this theme many Four Seasons homes will be opening a dementia café for the day with a reminiscence theme, and professionals on hand to offer advice and information.

20 Jul 2015

We have received a record numbers of ROCK (Recognition of Care and Kindness) Award nominations this month here at Four Seasons Health Care. We are getting lots of nominations each week from our residents and their relatives and friends, expressing their kind words and heartfelt messages about employees in our care homes. We know there is always room for improvement, but reading these nominations, it is clear to see the positive impact some of our staff make on residents and their relatives.

A number of homes have created their own award ceremonies in which personalities in the local area have visited the home to present the ROCK Awards to members of staff. One of our Home Managers has even compared it to the Oscars because her staff members have received so many awards.

A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that highlights the impact a Four Seasons Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of our care homes. It’s an internal award where staff can be nominated by residents, their relatives and their friends, who have witnessed or experienced employees demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness within their role.

Nominations can be made via the homes with nomination cards or directly through our website by clicking here.

Marites Villareal, or Tess to her friends and colleagues, takes her job with her everywhere she goes. She can’t help it, and says, “You’re never off-duty, but it’s nice to be able to share your talents with other people.” To her that’s what nursing means. And it’s the kind of care that we pride ourselves on at Four Seasons.

Born in the Philippines, Tess has been part of our nursing team at Four Seasons Weston Park, in Macclesfield, for over five years. She first joined as a general nurse, and has since progressed to the role of unit manager, overseeing the staff and residents in the Mulberry unit.

“I joined when they were recruiting nurses from the Philippines and I did my ONP (Overseas Nursing Programme) here with Four Seasons. After my ONP period I moved to Scotland – but it was too cold there so I moved further south!”

While she has significant experience managing hospital wards in the Philippines, Tess wanted to familiarise herself with working in the UK and residential care before taking on a bigger role.

“I was offered a unit manager position but I was keen to settle in and get to know the residents first, as well as get a sense of how the units are run here. I have more challenges in residential nursing care and I like it – especially working with the residents. You can see the difference you’re making to their lives and you get attached to them. It’s nice making them happy and seeing them smile.

“One of my favourite resident stories is of Barbara, who is like a mum to all of us. There was a day when a staff nurse called in sick, and there was no time to replace her, so I was working a very long shift. Barbara came up to me as I was preparing the evening medicine trolley, noticed I looked tired, and offered to help me by pushing the trolley. She was really sweet and even gave me a kiss on the cheek to make me feel better! It uplifted my heart – it goes to show that when we respect and love them, they show their appreciation.”

This sentiment is core to our holistic approach to care. Our nurses put their heart and soul into ensuring our residents are comfortable and happy and their considerate nature shows.

“Most residents have vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s, so if they’re comfortable and happy, then that makes the families happy too. I’ve had a good day if I leave work and I see that my residents are happy – that’s the most important thing. That’s our main calling.”

It’s why working at Four Seasons is like no other nursing job. You can find out more about our company, and search for jobs in your area, by clicking here.
