Welcome to Victoria Care Home
Our home is next to the local church and school at Rainford, in St Helens, Merseyside, and staffed by dedicated nurses and other care staff. These provide nursing care, dementia nursing and respite care.
We have several lounge areas and two dining rooms, some overlooking the garden. Bedrooms are all single, some with en-suite facilities There is also a separate relaxation/Snoezelen room, with projector. All rooms are centrally heated.
At Victoria 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.
Life at Victoria Care Home
Our activity coordinator ensures each week there's a full programme of group and individual activities. Residents have a Wii console, for various games and exercise.
Our Edward unit has specially decorated corridors, with themes including Hollywood and Coronation Street.
We have close links with the local church, which brings communion to those unable to get out.
Good communication with staff. (Karen) I live a great distance from my father, whom is a resident at this home. The staff are very helpful and descriptive in giving me details of how my father's condition has been throughout the years, over the phone, whilst he has been a resident there. Great outside space, garden! Nice welcoming TV and entrance. Dad has a nice spacious room with all his belongings/pics. Christmas looks fun there (I couldn't attend, and felt guilty, but, it looked like he was happy doing his own thing anyway which made me feel better!) He probably had his eye on another woman resident knowing my dad!
It didn't smell, it didn't feel controlled, staff seemed genuine, Dad looked happy, comfortable, fed, watered and very happy... What more could we want for ourselves in our old age or our parents?

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Many people start their career path doing something they love, and they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) programme.
On Tuesday 20th December 2016, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 41 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Four Seasons Northwest Managing Director said: “Everyone is really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentored them through the programme. We’re often really busy, and forget to recognise the hard work people put in, but this graduation ceremony is our way to reward and recognise you all. The journey is a long one; it takes a lot of dedication to complete. You can all wear your uniform with pride, and know that we’re all extremely proud of you. Well done everyone and congratulations once again.”
Mike O’Reilly, Risk Management Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “It’s a real privilege for me to attend ceremonies like this. The CHAPs programme is very innovative, and it really does make a difference to our residents’ lives as it provides continuity for them. I want to echo Rachael’s statement of congratulations to everyone who graduated and those who supported them.”
A total of 41 CHAPs graduated from the programme and will be working in 16 homes across the Northwest. The homes benefitting from the CHAPs skills are:
- Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield
- Bamford Grange Care Home in Stockport
