Welcome to Balmoral View Care Centre
You'll find Balmoral View Care Centre on the southern side of Belfast, County Antrim. Our beautiful listed building is close to shops, public transport, and The Park shopping centre. For residents who love nature, our extensive and mature grounds contain Northern Ireland's oldest oak tree.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
At Balmoral View Care Centre, 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 Balmoral View Care Centre
Many of the individuals living here have busy social lives. Our activity therapist works with them to create a programme they feel comfortable with, often inviting relatives to join in.
We love residents to participate in a range of activities if they can, but they're not compulsory - lots of people simply like to spend time enjoying the tranquility of our garden.
Volunteers such as church groups visit on Fridays and Sundays, giving residents something to look forward to each week.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

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 Lorraine Kirkpatrick, Regional Manager for Belfast who won the Regional Manager accolade.
Lorraine is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to helping people with mental health issues. Her passion for helping people stemmed from having a family member who suffered from Schizophrenia.
“All I ever wanted was for him to have a better life,” Lorraine told us. “I strongly believe that people with mental illnesses should be encouraged and enabled to live as full lives as possible. I want to do my utmost to help as many people as I can do this.”
Everyone in Northern Ireland celebrated when Lorraine won the prestigious accolade. Lorraine herself was very happy, not only for herself but for all of the teams that she works with. “It was a little bit of recognition for the teams continued respectfulness, being caring and trusting nature which ultimately makes a difference to the people in our care. Which is something I strive to do,” said Lorraine
Since winning the award, Lorraine has been busy developing Four Seasons Mental Health Framework. She’s also visited the Regional Team and homes based in the North East of England sharing best practice and assisting them with regards to the setting up and running of specialised units.
Lorraine added: “I’m not one for the limelight, so being able to go back to work and continue to help my teams and other Four Seasons colleagues to continue to make a difference to the lives of the people we care for is something that makes me very proud to work for this company.”
