Welcome to Meadowbrook Care Home
You'll find Meadowbrook in Gobowen, near Oswestry, Shropshire. Here our team provides person-centred care for disabled individuals who become ill and so have difficulty living independently.
We offer a caring, warm, homely, comfortable and safe environment for all who live here, and we're a focal point for our local community.
Each resident's physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs are regularly assessed, and provided for by primary nurses and key workers.
Inside the home, all corridors are wide, well lit and smartly decorated, with support rails running the full length.
We have a combination of single and double bedrooms. All are on the ground floor and have en-suites, TV and telephone points, and great safety features. Some overlook the central garden which can be accessed through French doors.
We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Meadowbrook Care Home
Our personal activities coordinators look after each resident's recreational needs and help them with any hobby or diversion they may wish to pursue. We organise ball games, EXTEND exercise training sessions, music mornings, tea dances, card games, relaxation sessions and more.
We arrange performances by outside entertainers and outings in our minibus, and encourage local interest groups into the home. A hairdresser comes in two days a week to serve residents in our own salon.
For those wanting to take part in activities, a programme is posted around the home.
Catering is high quality. Residents get a choice of menu each day, and we're happy to meet individual dietary requirements.
Our friend had a fairly short stay at Meadowbrook before she passed away. We as her power of attorney found it excellent, her nurses were particularly good at helping us get sorted in our friends final day. Both could not have been more helpful and professional.

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.

Many people start their career path doing something they love, and they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) programme.
On Tuesday 20th December 2016, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 41 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Four Seasons Northwest Managing Director said: “Everyone is really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentored them through the programme. We’re often really busy, and forget to recognise the hard work people put in, but this graduation ceremony is our way to reward and recognise you all. The journey is a long one; it takes a lot of dedication to complete. You can all wear your uniform with pride, and know that we’re all extremely proud of you. Well done everyone and congratulations once again.”
Mike O’Reilly, Risk Management Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “It’s a real privilege for me to attend ceremonies like this. The CHAPs programme is very innovative, and it really does make a difference to our residents’ lives as it provides continuity for them. I want to echo Rachael’s statement of congratulations to everyone who graduated and those who supported them.”
A total of 41 CHAPs graduated from the programme and will be working in 16 homes across the Northwest. The homes benefitting from the CHAPs skills are:
- Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield
- Bamford Grange Care Home in Stockport
- Bebington Care Home in the Wirral

Meadowbrook Care Home in Oswestry pulled out all the stops at their recent Summer fete which saw a record number of visitors come to the home as part of their Care Home Open Day celebrations.
Vanessa Platt, Home Manager, told us: “The event was held on Saturday 18th June and was very well attended. We had stalls and games ranging from book stalls to Tin Can Alley, White Elephants to Play Your Cards Right. We also had demonstrations from MD Warriors Karate, Border Counties Gymnastics and Whitchurch Dog Display Team.
“We had some vintage cars for people to come and take their photos with, and for a bit of extra fun put various team members in the stocks, ready to receive a wet sponge to the face. It’s safe to say, not everyone enjoyed that bit. It was a lovely family event catering to everyone’s – young and old – needs. I want to say a huge thank you for everyone who organised and everyone who attended the event. Thanks to your hard work and generosity we raised over £643 for the residents fund. This will go towards providing entertainment, trips out and other special experiences for our residents.”
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Holbeche House Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.
Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
