Welcome to Warrior Park Care Home
Warrior Park offers an established team of highly trained registered nurses and senior carers who provide 24-hour assistance to every resident, while maintaining a happy, peaceful atmosphere. People who stay here have various needs, including general nursing care, residential assistance, respite, and sensitive, dignified end-of life care. We also offer care for younger residents with physical disabilities.
We're only a short walk from the seafront in Seaton Carew – a lovely position, just half a mile from Hartlepool’s historic quay and marina. Swans, their signets, and many ducks are frequent visitors and a welcome sight around Warrior Park.
At Warrior Park Care Home residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and 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 Warrior Park Care Home
There's a very sociable atmosphere at Warrior Park. From our film afternoons and knitting club, to baking, darts, quizzes, bingo, karaoke and trips to the theatre, there's plenty for everyone to enjoy.
We hold a coffee morning every Wednesday, and lots of residents like to head out to the local pub on a Tuesday afternoon.
For those less able to go on day trips, we hold armchair aerobics, pampering sessions, popular hand massages, and sensory light therapy. We've even created a mini ‘bar' in our dementia unit, which residents love to spend time in.
Our wonderful, big garden is full of colourful flowers, a patio area and water feature. Residents like to spend time planting and tending to the flowerbeds whenever they can, or relaxing in our gazebo.
Warrior Park's chef proudly serves excellent food, making use of fresh fruit and seasonal vegetables. He regularly meets with residents and relatives for their feedback, too. Special diets are catered for and chef makes sure that soft and pureed foods are presented attractively to get mouths watering.
My great aunt has been resident at Warrior Park for approx a year. She died a few weeks ago as she had diabetes and myeloma. The care at Warrior Park was very good. My great aunt had complex nursing needs and was demanding but despite this she was well cared for and happy.
My dad is a 92 year very frail gentleman. His previous home was under closure by the CQC and we were told on the 21st December he was to move by 15th January. As you can imagine this was distressing not only for my dad but also us as a family. The manager went out of her way, by giving up her day off on a Saturday to ensure dads admission went smoothly. I cannot fault any member of staff we have come into contact with, all of whom have shown to be caring, compassionate and competent. Within three days of dad being there the staff had developed good relationships with dad and ourselves, the family. He has been shown lots of warmth and kindness, something that was greatly lacking in his previous care home. I cannot fault our experience in this home to date and I am sure the dedicated team will continue to excel. I am in the profession personally holding the role of Home Manager in a local competitor home and therefore am aware of what good quality care is. Dad had nothing but excellent quality care. I would highly recommend this home.
My great aunt has Alzheimer's and has been in Warrior Park now over a year. She was previously sectioned under the mental health act and the whole situation had been very distressing. Since arriving at Warrior Park she has been well cared for and is now settled and safe in her own little world. The new manager is excellent and the home is well run. Staff are very caring and always keep in touch to provide updates if there is anything of concern. Visits are now much easier and it is such a relief to know my great aunt is in safe hands.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Gail Starling, Home Manager at Warrior Park Care Home in Hartlepool who won the Care Home Manager accolade.
Gail has only been with the organisation for 12 months, and what a 12 months it has been. Gail and the team at Warrior Park have been working hard to become the best team in the homes, making a difference on a daily basis to the lives of the people in their care.
Gail likened her win to that of winning an Oscar. She told us: “On the night it was fantastic, all my peers were there and everyone in my region was so thrilled to have a local winner. I can’t get over how happy people were for me. Vicky [Home Manager at Westview Lodge] bought me a bouquet of flowers to celebrate my success.
“The Care Quality Commission has also been very complimentary. The Local Commissioners were thrilled to hear that a Hartlepool Manager had won.”
Since winning her award, Gail and the team have launched straight into implementing the Dementia Care Framework.
“I love all of the new training that the Dementia Care Framework provides the whole team in the home,” said Gail. “We’ve also been piloting some delirium training for care homes from the local trust, so it’s been all go since the awards ceremony in December.”
Everything Gail does is for her residents and the care team. She understands that making a difference and providing special experiences for those in her care is very important. These virtues are something she instills in her team.
Always leading from the front, Gail and her family recently went on a sponsored walk, trekking 15.8 miles, raising £200. This money was used to buy an iPad that residents can use to communicate with their families via Skype. Its actions like these which showcase how Gail lives and breathes the Four Seasons company values, and always has the well-being of the people in her care at the forefront of everything she does.Information about Four Seasons Care Awards 2016 is available on the awards section of our website.

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

As Big Ben’s chimes welcomed in New Year, many of us were thinking about resolutions we’d start and attempt to maintain throughout 2017.
Whilst many of us were just starting 2017, Gail Starling, Home Manager at Warrior Park Care Home in Hartlepool, and her family were up and about, beginning their resolutions of starting the year on the healthy foot.
Gail Starling, explained: “The Starling family went out on a staggering 15.8 mile walk to welcome in the new year. Although it was all good fun for us, we also wanted to make a difference to the lives of the residents in Warrior Park. So we asked for sponsorship to help us complete the challenge.
“Thanks to everyone’s kind donations we raised £200 which we can use at the home to provide special experiences for the residents on a day to day basis. When I went back into the home and broke the good news, the residents were so excited that they eagerly started talking about how to spend the money.”
Everyone at Four Seasons Health Care strives to provide special experiences for the residents in their care on a daily basis. These experiences can vary depending on the wants and wishes of each individual resident. No matter what it is, as long as we make a difference to residents' lives.
