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
Our personal activities coordinator works to develop residents' interests and activities on both a group and one-to-one level. Staff encourage residents to join in the day's household chores such as washing up, tidying their rooms, sweeping the courtyard and gardening.
There's an enjoyable newspaper group in the morning, plus reminiscence activities, arts and crafts, and sensory stimulation sessions. We arrange gardening with residents, and relatives often help and join in as well.
We also have music-therapy sessions which can touch emotions and rekindle memories, so can be especially life-enhancing for people with dementia.
The best there is. Everything good.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

Here at Four Season’s Health Care we like to provide training and support for all of our colleagues, helping them to continually develop in their career, making them the best teams we can possibly have in our homes.
One avenue of development that we use is our Preceptorship Programme. The Programme supports the newly qualified nurses as they embrace their chosen career path.
The Preceptorship Programme runs regularly across the UK, and it’s yielding some fantastic results for us.
Most recently, 9 candidates completed the programme which included a 2 week residential at Laburnum Court in Salford.
Feedback from the candidates has been very positive as you can see below:
“This course has been fantastic. It’s helped me to build my confidence whilst I’ve been learning on the job. It’s great to put everything we learn into practice straight away.”
“This course is great. The help and support I’ve received along the way has been constant. If I’ve ever been unsure someone has always been happy to help.”

Macmillan Coffee Morning at Four Seasons Health Care
Many of our homes across the UK took part in the world's largest coffee morning last Friday in support of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Take a look at some of the best bakes in the images above.
Four Seasons Head Office took part and held a coffee morning throughout the day. Many colleagues baked some incredible cakes and managed to raise £108 in donations alone.
Adeline House Care Home in Doncaster wowed us with their efforts. Natalie, Deputy Manager, made a very impressive rainbow cake which was one of the best cakes we've ever seen. The home also had their very own 'Bake Off' - the winners were presented with a bottle of wine each by Diane Henry, Regional Manager.
Northlea Court Care Home in Northumberland also got involved. They held a 'Cake Off' for everyone to take part in. Staff, friends and family all made some tasty treats for the competition - local pub manager blind tasted the cakes and decided on the winning entry. Lorraine Johnson, Care Assistant, won first prize.
Kingswood Lodge Care Centre in Wotton-Under-Edge opened their doors up to everyone to join them in their Macmillan Coffee Morning. Staff and relatives all brought in their bakes which went down a treat with all the residents and visitors.
Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend raised £65 for Macmillan at their coffee morning. Residents, staff and friends all joined together to enjoy some delicious cakes, scones and a cuppa or two.
Valley View Care Home in Cefn Hengoed had a very successful morning shared with residents, staff and family members. They had some very tasty bakes contributed by members of the team and family members. They also ran a competition to guess how many sprinkles were on the cake. The winner who guessed the closest amount won a bottle of wine presented to them by the Home Manager.
Craighead Care Home in Newport-on-Tay managed to raise £150 for Macmillan at their coffee morning. The team and visitors all brought in cakes, whether they were home bakes or 'fakes'. They ran a best cake competition and the winner was was awarded a 'Best Baker' badge to wear for the day. All the residents enjoyed having some cake and a natter with all the visitors.
Residents tried their hand at cake decorating at The Rookery Care Home in Ebbw Vale. The team made batches of cupcakes for the residents to decorate for their bake sale. They invited family and friends to join them for a cup of tea and some in the afternoon. A good day was had by all.
Longfield Care Home in Eglinton also took part in the coffee morning by inviting friends and relatives in for a good old natter and a cup of tea. They managed to raise an impressive £95 for the charity.
Thank you to everyone that took part in the Macmillan Coffee Morning!
