Welcome to Bangor Care Home
Bangor Care Home's charming seaside location is just one of the elements that contributes to our peaceful, harmonious atmosphere.
The grounds here are very relaxing. Many contented residents spend their days sitting quietly in one of our three delightful courtyards, taking in the flowers or the fountains, or listening to the wind chimes.
What's more, we have a fantastic relationship with the local community, which is easily accessible from our great central location.

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 Mauro Magbitang from Bangor Care Home in Bangor, who won the Specialist Services Champion award.
Mauro was commended for championing a diverse range of services after he created a specialist service in Holywood Care Home.
Mauro told us: “I felt humbled and honoured that the hard work and dedication of the team at Holywood had been recognised. I couldn’t have developed the service without them, and this award isn’t just for me it’s for them. The award was a boost to moral and has helped the team at Holywood continue to go from strength to strength.”
Not only was Mauro humbled on the night, but when he returned to Belfast his team had surprised him with a welcome home party. Although after the five minutes of fame, Mauro himself admits it was business as usual.
Since winning the award, Mauro has moved to Bangor Care Home where he hopes to replicate the success he had in Holywood and create a specialist service to help create a diverse living space.
“Winning the award has encouraged me to continue to grow the specialist service in Northern Ireland,” added Mauro. “Watch this space!”

Daniel Oliveira, Clinical Manager from Bangor Care Home in Bangor has been crowned the Regional Registered Nurse of the Year for Northern Ireland in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this Year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Daniel demonstrated how he continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Registered Nurse of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including how the overall winner who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to the daily experience of those in their care.
Daniel was nominated by a colleague. His nomination read: “Daniel is a passionate advocate of Care Home Nurses whose charisma and passion has drawn praise from a number of our residents and their families. He is a versatile member of our nursing team. His attention to detail, clinical competence and leadership has had a positive impact on our homes. He’s a fantastic asset for us here in Bangor.”
As the winner for Northern Ireland, Daniel is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. He will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Alana Irvine, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care Strangford Lough and South East, said: “I have known Daniel since he started working with Four Seasons Health Care and his commitment to developing both professionally and personally have led him to progress his career with us. He has worked closely with the Registered Manager to develop what was a junior team of nurses into a confident, competent group of practitioners. Well done Daniel!”
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, said: “Daniel Oliveira epitomizes a ‘born nurse’. His compassion is borne from his own life experiences, his motivation strongly routed in our company values which he lives every day. It is so rare to find a young nurse with the natural communication ski8lls that mean Daniel connects across the generation gap creating a confidence in his personalized care delivery which is frequently referenced to me. As nursing faces extraordinary pressures to override the impact of funding restrictions, Daniel is evidence that delivering truly exceptional care experiences is borne from truly exceptional nurses.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to approximately 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ to ‘Personal Activities Lead Champion’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
