Welcome to Lisburn Care Home
You'll find Lisburn Care Home on the outskirts of Lisburn, County Antrim.
Here our dedicated team of registered nurses and care assistants provide excellent quality care. We know each person who lives here has their own unique life experience. So we work closely with residents, their family and friends to ensure the care we serve is tailored to individual needs.
Ours is a purpose-built home close to the Lagan Valley Hospital and Sprucefield Shopping Centre. Our gardens and grounds are well maintained and there's car parking behind the home.
All resident accommodation is on the ground floor and there are two communal sitting rooms and a dining room. The rooms are tastefully decorated and provide a warm and peaceful environment for residents to enjoy a meal, relax, or socialize with family and friends. There's also a dedicated activities room.

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.

Lisburn Care Home has scored the maximum possible 100% satisfaction rating for its standards of care in a national survey among people in care homes. It also scored 96% for people being happy with life in the home, in the survey for “Your Care Rating”.
The home, which is operated by Four Seasons Health Care, achieved a 94% overall performance rating, scoring 942 points from a possible maximum of 1,000 in the survey. The overall performance rating is derived from four core themes: staff and care, home comforts, choice and having a say and the quality of life being experienced by the residents.
The independent confidential survey was conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos MORI.
Lisburn Care Home also achieved 100% rating for the care team treating residents with kindness, dignity and respect.
It achieved around 96% or 958 out of a maximum of 1,000 around the theme of the quality of life for people living in the home.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, who operate the home, said: "All the care team are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at Lisburn Home rated the home so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 98% overall customer satisfaction rating.”
Regulation and Quality Improvement Authority inspectors reported that residents told them: “You couldn’t get better,” and “It is all lovely here, it is very nice”. A relative said: “They are very attentive and it is just so nice to hear my mother say, how happy she is here.”

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Geoff Kelly, Chef Manager from Lisburn Care Home who won the Support Team Member of the Year award.
Geoff was very humbled when he won the award last year. Even by his own admission he doesn’t believe he does anything special, he just cares about his residents and even refers to Lisburn Care Home as his second home.
This is why when he returned to the home after winning the award he was surprised by the reaction he got. “I had such a great reception from everyone at Lisburn, my family, and residents’ relatives and other Four Seasons colleagues,” explains Geoff. “It made me realise how well I have done and what I’ve achieved. Seeing how happy everyone is, it makes me happy and proud to work for a company that cares so much, not just about the people in their care, but the people that work for them too.”
Geoff’s colleagues have praised him throughout the process for his enthusiasm. He hasn’t lost his bounce since winning the award, if anything it has ramped up. Geoff added: “The award has inspired me to continue working hard on a daily basis to make a difference to people’s lives, I’ve been trying out new ideas for the menu which have gone down fantastically with the residents. I also work hard to motivate my colleagues to do their upmost so we can become the best team the residents at Lisburn Care Home could ask for.”
Seemingly the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, as Geoff has been busy outside of the walls of Lisburn too. He’s been helping his son with his NVQ Catering Course, something Geoff is very proud of.
