Welcome to St Catherines Care Home

At St Catherine's we provide nursing care but we also have our Pike View Unit - a specialist dementia care unit that has achieved the PEARL award at silver level.

We are in the small town of Horwich, on the outskirts of Bolton town centre, so we're handy for Middlebrook shopping centre. We have several lounges where residents can relax and they will be very at home in our beautiful extensive grounds and conservatory.

At St Catherines Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.

A telegram from the Queen is certainly a reason to celebrate and that’s just what St Catherine’s latest centenarian did when she turned 100 recently.

Alice Jones has been a resident at St Catherine’s for five years. She celebrated reaching the incredible milestone in fine style with a visit from the Mayor of Horwich and a surprise visit from some of her relatives from Scotland.

Alice, her family and friends, and residents and staff from St Catherine’s, had a big party with plenty of food. Entertainment was provided by local performer Susan Jay, a regular at St Catherine’s and a personal favourite of Alice’s.

Home Manager, Gillian Johnson said, “It is wonderful to celebrate an occasion like this at St Catherine’s. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended and everyone here was honoured to share such a special day with Alice.”

It is just over a year since a landmark voluntary joint recognition agreement was reached between Four Seasons Health Care, the UK's largest independent health and social care provider, and three influential unions: the GMB, the Royal College of Nursing and UNISON. This was the first agreement of its kind in the care sector and it remains the only one. The company's management team and the unions' leadership are united in agreement that this innovative industrial relations initiative has been a success.
