Life at Millbrow Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures each person living here has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to.
They encourage individual hobbies and interests, and make sure there are plenty of group activities too.
Handicrafts, gardening, quizzes, concerts and trips to local places are among the most popular.
Millbrow is currently under refurbishment, with a new management team and new staff who are making every effort to improve the well being of the residents. The residents relatives are being encouraged to be as involved as possible, which can only be a good practice for the future.
I would recommend Millbrow Care Home to others who are looking for a well run, reliable organisation. The staff are well trained in care skills, are friendly and are always on hand to help not only residents, but their families and other visitors.
More access to the garden with wheelchair friendly paths would be much better.
Parking spaces are a bit tight, and more improvements in the garden needed.
Excellent care home with very good staff, currently undergoing refurbishment to make it even better. I always feel welcome by all the staff, who are always willing to answer any questions with a smile. Managed very well and improving all of the time.
A much improved care home of late new management is enthusiastic and motivated. Care staff are friendly and caring. Improvements in décor are tasteful. I am happy that my mother is being looked after as she deserves.
This home had a very welcoming, friendly and caring atmosphere from the moment my husband was admitted on 26th February 2015. He has been well looked after since the moment he arrived. He is always clean and comfortable and very well cared for by all the lovely staff. I am very impressed with this homes high standards and the palliative care of my husband.
My father-in-law passed away on 27th April 2015, he was in the home eight weeks very sick with cancer, the staff were wonderful in there and Kelly the head sister and Emma, Tom and all the staff were wonderful with him. I would recommend this care home to anyone as the wonderful staff are a credit to the home.
Very good care provided for my mother who can be difficult, staff are hard working, kind and very friendly. Rooms are very clean and food is good.
I recently made a visit to Millbrow Care Home on a recommendation from a friend for a possible home for my mother. I was very unsure as i had heard of Millbrows colourful reputation, not good i thought. What a wonderful surprise and experience we had, we were greeted by a very pretty, pleasant and friendly young lady who turned out to be the home manager. We were given a show round which we didn't expect and were told this is welcomed and shows the home in it's true colours, YES IT DID wonderful, friendly, clean and happy. Every question we asked was answered in a positive transparent manner.

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.

On Thursday 1st September Millbrow Care Home opened its doors to celebrate the grand opening of the newly built Activities Pavilion and Summer Fair.
The pavilion was built by Josh Mullin, one of the maintenance men at the home, who was ably assisted by resident Mr James Whimperley, who had the honour of cutting the ribbon. The Pavilion is for the use of residents, families and activities throughout the year.
Carmel O'Halleron, Home Manager, said: “The sun shone throughout the day to make it a fabulous day. Visitors enjoyed tombola, cake and table top stalls, face painting, drench the wench, hot dogs, ice cream and more. The day was topped off by two fantastic entertainers, Anaisa and Debbie Allen, who took to the stage and entertained with lots of music from all eras.
“We would like to thank everyone for their help, donations and support in making this such a special day for our residents. Over £600 was raised for the Resident Social Fund which will help us to provide them with special experiences.”

Today, Friday 17th June marks Care Home Day, an opportunity for Care Homes across the UK to open their doors to the local community. The theme for this year is celebration, with the biggest celebration of the year being the Queen’s 90th birthday.
“With this is mind we wanted to celebrate everyone turning 90 this year,” said CEO Tim Hammond. “We have over 680 residents celebrating their 90th birthday throughout the year, and I want to wish them all many happy returns.
“As part of our celebrations, we’ve had a chat with some of our residents and they in turn wanted to share their stories with you, showing how much things have changed over the last 90 years. Some of the stories are very interesting and I’d urge everyone to go and have a read of them.”
The 41 residents below all wanted to share a bit about themselves with you. They’ve also shared any memories they have of the Queen, with some having some interesting recollections.
