Welcome to The Headington Care Home

At Headington Care Home we work with residents to help them enjoy the highest possible quality of life, and the day-to-day events happening around them.

Our nursing and care staff assist and oversee residents' health and well-being. We consult with each one individually, and consider the importance of their life history, their memories and achievements.

You'll find us in Headington, a residential suburb of Oxford. Our home is warm, calm and spacious, with a lovely open feeling which encourages residents to move around the lounges and interact with others.

All bedrooms have space for residents and family to bring in personal things so they feel more homely. Some are extra large with patio doors leading to a courtyard.

Life at The Headington Care Home

A carer and a resident

The best there is. Everything good.

Peter Harris, Wife of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

My husband has always been cared for to the highest degree. He is treated with great dignity and nothing is too much trouble. I have been treated as part of the family and I have always been consulted about anything connected to my husband. I am rung up at home if my husband has had a fall or been feeling unwell or anything, I should know about straight away. I cannot praise the entire staff enough and I feel confident he is being well looked after at all times.

Beryl Miles, Wife of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

Since my husband has been at Headington, he is spotlessly clean, as is his room and other parts of the home, and more importantly he is very well looked after. Fantastic and very caring staff.

Jean Page, Wife of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

My husband was in an advanced state of dementia when he was moved to Headington Care Home. He was unable to walk, speak and was incontinent. He has received superlative treatment as his condition has advanced. He is now unconscious most of the time, does not recognise people and appears unable to see if he opens his eyes. The staff still get him dressed and take him to the lounge each day. They are very quick to spot any redness of the skin which might develop into a sore and treat for prevention immediately. I have recommended the home to a number of people and Young Dementia UK, who in turn are now recommending the home to potential new residents and their families.

Heather Elbourn, Wife of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

My late husband and I were recommended to Headington Care Home by a consultant of our local hospital. He stayed there for three years until his death on the 8th of June 2012. He was lovingly cared for in every possible way - every day beautifully shaved and in clean clothes. He was helped with his meals and when he could no longer chew - his food was liquidised. All his visitors were well treated - coffee or tea was always offered. I feel so very fortunate to find such a wonderful care home. I remain a visitor to one of my close friends in The Headington Care Home and visit every 2 weeks.

Mary Chavasse, Friend of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

My mother has been a resident at this care home for 2 years now, and I couldn't be happier for the kindness and support they give me, and the care all the staff give my mum. She is respected and helped 24/7 by all these wonderful people in the home. This is why I put them forward for the "rock award" and they are receiving this soon as they won this award.
I am happy for them and so grateful for their support and the care for the rest of my mum's life, comfortably and safely as I would give it myself if it were possible. I think they deserve medals and recognition for their efforts every day. xxxx

June Heppell, Daughter of Resident/Service User at The Headington Care Home

The staff are caring, kind and considerate at all times. They make like as good as it can be for the residents, when life is not easy. They support the residents, friends and visitors when it is much needed.

Northeast-Tea-Dance-December-2016

6 Jan 2017

Residents from 8 Four Seasons care homes in Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they got together for a social afternoon on Wednesday 21st December 2016 at the New Delaval & Newsham Working Men’s Club. They were joined by friends, relatives and staff, and members of the local community.

As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a sing-along session and bingo. There was a range of refreshments served and a chance to take part in a raffle.

Rob Heane, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in Northumberland, said, “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out enjoying themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community. This event is a regular occurrence, and it’s great to see it go from strength to strength each time we run it. Here’s to the next one.”

The afternoon and early evening dances, with a civilised break for tea and refreshments, are coming back into vogue. Before the 1950s, tea dances were a popular way to socialise; however, they declined in the 60s as the club and disco scene emerged. They are now beginning to make a return to popularity, possibly linked to the success of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Story-Telling

15 Dec 2016

Earlier this year Her Majesty the Queen celebrated turning 90.

Here at Four Seasons Healthcare we wanted to put a spotlight on our lovely residents who were also celebrating their 90th year, giving them the opportunity to share their stories with us.

Monty Lister, a resident at Bebington Care Home in Bebington worked on BBC Radio Merseyside for 35 years. This is where his story begins.

“Over my time at Radio Merseyside I interviewed a lot of interesting people. I will always remember my very first interview as it was with David Scott, an Astronaut from Apollo 15. He was the first person to drive a vehicle on the moon! I also had the chance to interview Ronnie Biggs, the infamous train robber. I went and met him in Brazil when he was on the run, which was a bit of a coup. Closer to home Morcambe and Wise were very funny to interview, as was Bob Hope. I met Bing Crosby at Granada TV in Manchester as well as Sir Cliff Richard and Gracie Fields.

I was one of the first people to interview the Beetles in Hume Hall, Port Sunlight before they became famous. I remember how funny they were, especially Paul. I remember Paul being told off by a doorman at Hume Hall for blocking a fire exit, it really was a funny sight.

“I’ve been blessed to have made friends throughout my career with Paul McCartney and Roy Orbison being among my close circle of friends who I regularly shared a cup of tea with. I also had the pleasure of being close friends with Ken Dodd, he even came to my 80th birthday celebrations.”

How time flies when you’re having fun.

Care Awards Logo

8 Dec 2016

Earlier this year we launched our very own Four Seasons Care Awards to celebrate and commend all of the hard work and dedication of our teams.

14 categories were created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ to ‘Personal Activities Lead Champion’. The awards also recognised the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers. Over 1,200 nominations were submitted by care home residents, colleagues and visitors and these were shortlisted to reveal our Regional Winners.

All of the Regional Winners attended the awards evening, and patiently waited to find out who would be crowned the National Champion in their shortlisted category.

The National Champions on the evening were:

Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care, said: “It was a really proud moment for me to see everyone at the awards ceremony. It was a fantastic way to celebrate all of their achievements and showcasing how they go above and beyond the call of duty every day. Everyone on the night was a winner in my eyes as they do their utmost to make a difference each and every day to the lives of their residents.”

The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to approximately 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
