Welcome to Ringshill Care Home
You'll find Ringshill Care Home on the outskirts of Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. Here our dedicated team of experienced registered nurses and well-trained care-assistants provides excellent care around the clock.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
We offer different levels of care to suit a range of needs - from dementia care to palliative care - over short and long-term periods.
From our home it's just a short walk to a general store, and an easy drive into town. A local bus serves the district.
People living at the care home enjoy the fresh air in our outdoor areas, whether it's helping out with the plants and herbs, or experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of our sensory garden.
Accommodation is on two floors - downstairs we provide residential care; upstairs, it's nursing care. All bedrooms have TVs and great personal-safety systems. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Ringshill Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures each person living here has something stimulating and enjoyable to occupy them. They encourage individual hobbies and interests, and also organise plenty of group goings-on.
Our varied programme includes handicrafts, gardening, quizzes and in-house entertainment.
Chef and the team carefully prepare our menus so they account for residents' preferences, and offer the best combination of nutrition and flavour.
More choice at mealtimes for vegetarians would be nice.
My wife, has been here now for 4 and a half years, and she needs constant 24/7 care. I find the staff here totally dedicated to the job, I visit every day and find she is well looked after with absolute care.
Despite a few negative comments 3 years ago from some locals, we have found that if we've had any comments (not complaints!) we have always seen the situation resolved quickly. The staff have formed good relationships, very caring with mum.
My husband has been a resident for almost two years, and I would recommend the home. The staff are excellent and very caring, but the lack of permanent management staff and permanent nursing staff has been very detrimental. I believe this will change! One of the reasons why we chose RingsHill was that everybody, staff and residents were smiling when I visited. And they still are, often under difficult circumstances.
Personally I like it her. I have no problems we have good food and the people look after us very well. I have no problems with anything, I would recommend it to anyone who wanted to live here. I am free to come and go as I please within reason. It is really great.
I enjoy living here, there is a lot of different people with different views and opinions. I's nice to hear other people. The living conditions are very good and most of the staff are okay.
I feel we are well taken care of. The staff are very helpful and courteous. I think it is a well run establishment. I would feel safer it there were more security helpers.
My mum has been admitted to Ringshill for two weeks respite. Despite my original concern at having to put mum into a care home, the staff at Ringshill couldn't be nicer and have put my mind at complete rest. They are kind, caring, extremely helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them and I am extremely impressed. The home is clean and well run, the food is very good and the atmosphere is like a family.
I am very happy with the care that my Grandmother is getting. The staff are polite and courteous and would help in any way they can.
Since my mother has been in Ringshill Care Home we have had no cause for complaint. My mother is unable to write since a stroke so I have filled the form in for her. The opinions are hers. She is quite content where she is, and gets on well with the staff.

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.

Ringshill Care Home in Huntingdon has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Ringshill Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.
The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.
The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an event for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them on Wednesday 1st March 2017 at a ‘Best of British’ themed party.
Marjorie Condacos, Managing Director for Four Seasons in South East of England said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”
At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.
Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments. The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.
The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
