Welcome to Aspen Lodge Care Home
You'll find Aspen Lodge in a residential area of Skegness, Lincolnshire.
Here our team of registered nurses, dedicated care assistants and ancillary staff provides high-quality help and support 24 hours a day. We meet a wide range of residential and nursing needs, including short-term care, respite care, and care for young people with physical disabilities.
Our comfortable care home is within 5-10 minutes of a pub, shop with post office, garage and GPs surgery. Outside the building there's an attractive area with a fish pond; inside, we have two lounges and dining areas, and a conservatory too.
All bedrooms have great safety systems. Some have en-suites and overlook our central courtyard. We encourage residents to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Aspen Lodge Care Home
Our dedicated activities team works with the people living here one-to-one, and with residents in groups. Pastimes, entertainment and diversions vary according to residents' wishes, and often include trips to town, supermarkets, the theatre and seafront.
Residents also enjoy sessions dedicated to crafts, coffee and chat, movement to music, and painting; and visits to the local pub.
Outside singers visit and we've hosted a touring pantomime. We're also on the rounds of the local clergy.
Catering at the home is of a high standard, and residents love our tasting sessions.
My father who has vascular dementia moved to the home end of September after been on the waiting list for several months, prior to this dad was on a specialised small dementia unit about twenty miles away, he appeared very unhappy there at times as wanted to be in Skegness near my mum. When a bed came free for dad at Aspen Lodge I was on holiday, on return from holiday I visited my dad at Aspen Lodge and was overwhelmed to see how he had settled so well and he looked so much better in himself as the environment appears to be a lot better for my dad. I am so happy my dad appears to be comfortable in his new surroundings, the staff I saw whilst visiting appeared to be happy and communicated well with the residents

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Our homes always do their best to raise money for a variety of charities. Last week Aspen Lodge Care Home in Skegness did their bit for Children in Need with the care team wearing pyjamas to work, apple bobbing and a lovely raffle.
Katrina Morris, Home Manager, said: “We raised £70 to help Children in Need, and everyone had a really fun time. Residents, relatives and the care team all got involved, and it was great to see everyone pulled together. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind donations.”

As the witching hour struck, Four Seasons homes across the UK were welcoming their own witches, warlocks, vampires and mummies for tea.
Although nobody went our trick or treating, our residents got up to a lot of spooktacular behaviour to celebrate the day, with the odd sweet treat thrown in every now and then.
Our care teams pulled out all of the stops to transform the homes from lovely warm environments, to something Casper would be happy to haunt.
In Skegness, residents and the team at Aspen Lodge Care Home enjoyed a gruesome Halloween party.
Katrina Morris, Home Manager, said: “The team really got into the Halloween spirit. Everyone had a great time. It was fun to see how everyone embraced the witching hour.”
