Welcome to Cameron House Care Home
You'll find Cameron House in Elton, to the west of Bury, Lancashire. Here we provide nursing, and residential and respite care.
We also offer rapid-response care where people who are unwell at their own home are seen by their GP then brought to Cameron House to recover rather than be admitted to hospital.
Ours is a modern detached building set in a residential area close to Bury town centre. There's good access to main roads and public transport services.
We have a small, well maintained garden and parking facilities to the front and side of the building. Inside, there are two small lounges, a conservatory and dining room. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated.

A hairdresser and chiropodist visit weekly and monthly. All food served is homemade with a varied menu to choose from.
It's a very nice place to live. Everyone is always so friendly. I like to sit in the lounge in the morning, but like to come to my own room in the afternoon and that's ok because I can do what I like here.
All the staff are lovely, they work so hard. Its nice and homely, I'm just glad I'm here.
Everyone is so helpful. I am fairly new here but everyone has made it easy to settle in and I have made new friends.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

The Nursing Times announced their shortlist of finalists for their upcoming annual awards in London. The Nursing Times, affectionately known as the Oscars of Nursing, are the most respected awards in the nursing and healthcare sector and offer much-deserved recognition for the innovative and excellent care that nurses at all levels provide across the UK.
There were 128 organisations that were shortlisted across the 22 categories. We at Four Seasons Health Care have the honour of being the organisation that was shortlisted in more categories than any other. With 7 finalists we can truly assert that we are changing the face of care home nursing.
Over the next few week’s we’ll be profiling the finalists of these awards, so you can find out more about our work and some of the exceptional nurse leaders in our organisation who have helped make Four Seasons Health Care the most exciting place to nurse in the UK!
The first category we’re profiling is the ‘Rising Star’ category that Craig Priestley, Clinical Lead at Cameron House Care Home in Bury has been shortlisted for.
Rising Star: Craig Priestley
The prestigious Rising Star award aims to recognise a nurse who has been qualified for less than five years, and demonstrates exceptional qualities that embody the best of nursing and the leadership skills to inspire others to follow their example.
At Four Seasons Health Care we have been finalists in this category for the last four years.
This year our very own Registered Nurse of the Year Craig Priestley has been recognised by the Nursing Times Awards.
Craig’s journey to nursing has been an inspiring one. He began his career with Four Seasons Health Care over ten years ago in domestic and laundry services. Since then he has graduated with an Honours degree from Salford University and became clinical lead of Cameron House Care Home. A three-time Recognition of Care and Kindness (ROCK) award winner, Craig has also won the hearts of residents and family members through his compassion, empathy and active practice of relationship-centred care.
In his nursing practice, Craig has championed care home nursing and has actively engaged with Salford University with a view to ensuring that student nurses are aware of the fantastic opportunities at Four Seasons Health Care, and indeed care homes in general. Craig has also developed valuable professional links with specialists in diabetes, tissue viability and palliative care. His passion and leadership at Cameron House has recently culminated in an impressive Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection report, with good ratings noted across all five of CQC’s domains.
In addition to his clinical practice Craig serves on the Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) editorial board and recently won a RCN Foundation Scholarship to undertake postgraduate study in the future. He has also recorded a podcast, penned a blog, written an article and co-developed a module for the nurse academy at Four Seasons.
