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.

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.

The 14 categories have been 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’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.

Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.

“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”

Halloween

3 Nov 2016

As the witching hour struck, Four Seasons homes across the UK were welcoming their own witches and warlocks for tea.

Although nobody went our trick or treating, our residents got up to a lot of spooktacular behaviour to celebrate the day.

In Dove Court in Kettering, everything went a little spooky as the home was decorated in preparation for their Halloween party. The residents also made some stain glass inspired autumnal artwork to accompany the Halloween glamour.

At Longfield Care Home in Eglinton, residents, relatives and the care team all welcomed some ghostly visitor as they threw a Halloween tea party.

In Durham, Hallgarth Care Home threw a pumpkin themed party. Entertainment was provided by Colin Summer who won their annual pumpkin competition. It’s safe to say these celebrations had an orange tinge to them.

Northlea Court in Cramlington also got into the orange spirit as residents carved their favourite designs into pumpkins before showing them off for all to see.

In Thamesmead, Marlborough Court had a sophisticated affair as the Dignity Ambassador, Eileen Coates dressed up as the Wicked Witch of the Marlborough. She spent the morning trick or treating everyone in the home, with the residents choosing to trick her rather than treat her.

Some scary visitors, including a vampire, zombie cheerleader and devil turned up for Halloween shenanigans at Gowrie House in Kirkcaldy.

Meanwhile in Doncaster, Amethyst House certainly looked the part for Halloween, with the care team all dressing up. However, their celebrations turned into a quiet affair after residents requested a scary movie night – watching the Addams Family and enjoying a chippy tea. Flower Park’s celebrations saw them hold a huge party. Residents, relatives and the care team all got into the spirit, with the younger ghouls looking more cute than gruesome. Everyone enjoyed taking part in the Halloween themed games which included creating your own mummy. Finally in Doncaster, Church and Manor View Care Home saw residents being trick or treated by the care team.

Everyone was in safe hands in Bishop Auckland. The local zombie doctor and her werewolf side kick popped into St Helens Care Home to check everyone’s vital signs. The bone jangling entertainer then got everyone up on their feet.

Not forgetting Astell Care Centre in Newcastle upon Tyne, who celebrated their Dementia Care Framework Accreditation with a Halloween themed party. After the accreditation everyone indulged in some pet therapy with fluffy and not so fluffy guests, dancing and other Halloween themed shenanigans.

All in all a gruesome time was had by all.
