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.

We have received a record numbers of ROCK (Recognition of Care and Kindness) Award nominations this month here at Four Seasons Health Care. We are getting lots of nominations each week from our residents and their relatives and friends, expressing their kind words and heartfelt messages about employees in our care homes. We know there is always room for improvement, but reading these nominations, it is clear to see the positive impact some of our staff make on residents and their relatives.

A number of homes have created their own award ceremonies in which personalities in the local area have visited the home to present the ROCK Awards to members of staff. One of our Home Managers has even compared it to the Oscars because her staff members have received so many awards.

A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that highlights the impact a Four Seasons Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of our care homes. It’s an internal award where staff can be nominated by residents, their relatives and their friends, who have witnessed or experienced employees demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness within their role.

Nominations can be made via the homes with nomination cards or directly through our website by clicking here.

St. Catherines Care Home, Horwich held a western style party for National Care Home Open Day (June 19th). The home was completely decked out as a western town with its own saloon, jail, watering and feeding holes. Residents, staff and visitors embraced the theme by wearing Stetsons, sombreros and cowboy outfits. Young and old came together to enjoy the wonderful day with lots of party games, music and great food.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Horwich also joined in the afternoon’s festivities with the Mayoress joining in the line dancing arranged by local dance group. A daughter of one of the residents even rode in on her horse dressed as a cowgirl much to the delight of her father who lives at the home.

Gillian Johnson, Manager at the home, said: “We always love welcoming visitors and it was great that so many people came along to celebrate the day with us. We see Care Home Open Day as a way of showing people what life is like in a care home, and to see behind the doors for themselves. “

Care Home Open Day is celebrated by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community. It also provides a chance for people to come and see what life inside a home is really like and get to know some of the fascinating people who live there.

For the second year running, staff at St Catherine’s Care Home wowed crowds at the annual Horwich Carnival (28th June) and took away Best Float.

The staff took the time out of their own schedules to hand construct the impressive float based on the Disney movie Frozen. Staff and families were able to get involved with the parade by dressing up as their favourite Frozen characters which was enjoyed by both young and old at the carnival.

Gillian Johnson, Home Manager, said “The carnival is always fun and gives us a great opportunity to link with the community. Staff, residents and families all got involved this year so we we're particularly proud of winning best float”.

Fingers crossed their winning streak continues to next year.
