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.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

12th-18th June marks Carers Week, and here at Four Seasons Health Care we wanted to say thank you to the thousands of carers in our homes who regularly make a difference to the lives of our residents and their families.
In 2016 at the Four Seasons Care Awards, colleagues, residents, families and health care professionals identified the cream of the crop. However, over the past 18 months, positive praise has continued to arrive commending the care and kindness shown by our carers from across the organisation.
Watch this space to see if you can see your favourite carer on our website and social media pages.
You are our heroes of the week. Well done everyone!

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.
Care Home Open Day is all about showing people what care homes are really about and how they can be at the centre of the local community, developing relationships across the generations.
