Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

Geoff Kelly, Chef Manager at Lisburn Care Home in Lisburn has been crowned ‘Support Team Member of the Year’ at the first Four Season’s Care Awards.
The award Geoff has won commends him for delivering a high level of support to colleagues, residents and their families through everyday tasks. Geoff also demonstrated how he is committed to making a difference to everyone he encounters within the home.
Following over 1,200 nominations, Geoff was shortlisted with five other colleagues from over 300 Four Season’s Care Homes across the UK.
Neil Bodfish, Finance Director for Four Seasons Health Care, presented Geoff with this award said: “All of the candidates we interviewed for this award were of such a high calibre; it was a difficult decision to make. However, we chose Geoff because his ethos was fantastic. He really puts his heart and soul into everything he does at Lisburn Care Home. Well done Geoff.”
Karen Moriarty, Home Manager for Lisburn Care Home said: “Geoff has been the Chef Manager in Lisburn Care home for the past 23 years. Although employed in that role for that length of time he never loses his motivation and enthusiasm for providing wholesome nutritious well-presented food to the residents. He receives many comments from residents, relatives and visiting managers from other homes on the quality of his food. He’s friendly and very motivational to his team having only had two occasions where he’s been off sick in 23 years. Everyone respects and admires him and we all agree he is a worthy winner of this award.”
On receiving the award, Geoff said: “I’m really happy to have received this award. For me I don’t believe I’ve done anything special, I just care about my residents. In my opinion I don’t go to work, I go to my second home. I want to thank the person who nominated me, it really means a lot.”

Karen Moriarty, Home Manager at Lisburn Care Home in Lisburn has been crowned Registered Care Home Manager of the Year for Northern Ireland 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 Karen demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Registered Care Home Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including top of the range leadership skills, the ability to adapt and embrace initiatives such as our innovative Quality of Life Programme, as well as ensuring the efficient day to day running of the home
Ann was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “When I heard of these awards I thought of my Manager, who has won my respect, my trust. I look up to her and she has taught me that no matter what I can make a difference to the care team, residents and my own personal development. I admire her commitment and her approach with respect and her caring nature. Karen you’re our Manager of the Year every year!”
As the winner for Northern Ireland, Karen 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.
Lorraine Thompson, Regional Manager for Lisburn and South East, said: “Karen is an experienced Manager who dedicates her time to ensuring her residents receive the best possible care. The team are developed and continually trained to ensure that this occurs, making them feel like part of the Lisburn family. I personally feel honoured to have someone like Karen in my region.”
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, said: “Karen totally underestimates the esteem in which she is held, staying away from the limelight whilst ensuring her care team and residents' well-being. She spends each day completely embedded in the lives of her residents, relatives and team. She’s a fantastic asset for Four Seasons, as her knowledge and expertise have been honed over a number of years in the care profession. Well done Karen. You’re a worthy winner.”
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.”
