Welcome to Brandon Lodge Care Home

At Brandon Lodge in Brandon, County Durham, our registered and specialist teams provide high quality residential and nursing care. Some people stay with us permanently, other for shorter periods.

Ours is a modern two-storey home in easy reach of Durham city centre. We have three light and airy lounges, giving residents a choice of areas where they can relax quietly, or join in activities and social gatherings.

In summer, people love to enjoy the fresh air in our small garden and patio area. All year, they can watch the changing seasons from the comfort of their rooms or our dining room.

All bedrooms have alarm-call systems as standard, and most are en-suite. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more homely.

FSHC-TJ-Award-Success-Dec-2017

11 Dec 2017

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.”

The CNJ is available to view on the Four Seasons website here.

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.”

More information about the role of a CHAP is available on the Four Seasons website here.

Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
