Welcome to Carnalea Care Home
Looking out over a golf course, and close to Bangor's beaches, purpose-built Carnalea is a special place to live. Within easy reach of the train station and town centre shops, it's very much part of the community in this lovely part of Northern Ireland.
Inside, the care is tailored to the person living here, whether that individual needs someone to support them, or full-time help. We regularly talk to residents and their families to make sure we've got it just right.
We know how important life before coming to the Carnalea is and so we tailor the activities we offer to the things people tell us they enjoy.
The individual touch continues in residents' own rooms where everyone is encouraged to make it a very personal place. There is also always a warm welcome in the dining areas and sitting rooms which look over Carnalea's pretty gardens.
Life at Carnalea Care Home
When residents come to live with us we ask them and their families what activities they already enjoy. From bingo, craft and board games, to cinema trips, days out and church services, we are confident that everyone in Carnalea will find an activity they love.
Every month residents enjoy celebrating at least one special event, from Burns Night in January to the autumn harvest. Hairdressers also pay regular visits to the home to help everyone feel their best.
The staff and care of this home is very very good. I'm am extremely happy with the service I am receiving. My son and daughter in law chose this home for me and it was an excellent choice. The gardens are lovely and I can sit in them when ever I want. We are well fed and if the menu isn't to my liking the staff are only to pleased to accommodate. My room is excellent and I have a lot of my personal furniture in it. Overall I am very happy living in Carnalea.
I came to this home from the hospital for two weeks respite initially but after a couple of extensions I asked my care manager if I could stay on permanently. The level of care here is of a high standard. I get on well with all the staff and most of the residents. My room has an en suite and I have a lot of my personal things with me.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

On Friday 17th June 2016, residents, relatives and visitors to Carnalea Care Home in Bangor were transported around the world, as everyone indulged in various traditional dishes from across the glove.
Josette Fernandez, Home Manager, said: “We offered a taste of different foods brought in by the team to share with residents, relatives, colleagues and visitors. Dishes and afternoon treats from the Philippines, India, Romania, Zambia, Thailand, Poland, Italy and Portugal were introduced that afternoon. The all-time favourite like Scotch eggs, Scottish sausage, Irish potato farls, Irish stew, English pudding and Guinness wheaten bread were also showcased and enjoyed. It was a Friday of food, family and array of music entertainment. To add some spice, some of the team served the food in their national dress which was a bit of a change to the day to day uniforms.”
Care Home Open Day is a UK wide initiative inviting care homes to open their doors to their local communities. Events like the one at Carnalea Care Home will help to create lasting links between the residents and their local community.

Today, Friday 17th June marks Care Home Day, an opportunity for Care Homes across the UK to open their doors to the local community. The theme for this year is celebration, with the biggest celebration of the year being the Queen’s 90th birthday.
“With this is mind we wanted to celebrate everyone turning 90 this year,” said CEO Tim Hammond. “We have over 680 residents celebrating their 90th birthday throughout the year, and I want to wish them all many happy returns.
“As part of our celebrations, we’ve had a chat with some of our residents and they in turn wanted to share their stories with you, showing how much things have changed over the last 90 years. Some of the stories are very interesting and I’d urge everyone to go and have a read of them.”
The 41 residents below all wanted to share a bit about themselves with you. They’ve also shared any memories they have of the Queen, with some having some interesting recollections.
