When I was looking for a place to stay my daughter went to all the homes in the area. She is a manager in the social work. She said you would have to go a long way to get anything as good as this and I agree with her.
My relative was at Carrickstone House for eight years and was happy and content to be there because of all the love and attention he received. Thank you.
I cannot thank the staff at Carrickstone House enough for the sensitive way in which they supported us in this shift in the future for my mother. The staff also took time to look after my 92 year old father when he visited.

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.

Three nurses from Carrickstone House Care Home in Glasgow ran the Glasgow Half Marathon back at the start of October.

To date they have raised over £1200, with some donations still to be received.
Claire Wilson, said: "I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported and donated to Sands, and a special thank you to Laura and Catriona, without whom I could not have done the race."

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 Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.
Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.
“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”
Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).
Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way.”
