Life at Castle Lodge Care Home
Residents get very involved in planning activities with our activities coordinator. There's no pressure to participate. If people prefer to relax or pursue their own hobbies and interests, that's absolutely fine.
For those who do wish to join in, some of the options available at Castle Lodge include coffee mornings, one-to-one sessions, animal therapy, plus performances by professional entertainers and local school children.
Meals are home-cooked by our own chef, and there is always a good choice. What's more, we're more than happy to cater for dietary and cultural needs.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.
I don't know how to thank you all enough for the wonderful way in which you cared for my Dad. You made him feel special and loved. You made him happy.

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.”
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.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Residents from Castle Lodge Care Home in Antrim went back to school last week.
As part of their community links work, some of the residents went to visit pupil at Greystone Primary School and enjoyed a lovely session with Mrs McNeill’s class.
Una Brady, Home Manager, said: “The benefits of bringing the younger and older generation together are well documented. It’s great to see the interactions, whether that is telling stories or playing games, the laughter that was heard echoed down the corridors. This will definitely be a regular visit for the residents and the children.”

Castle Lodge Care Home in Antrim work very closely with their local community.
Last week they invited the Oasis Caring in Action group in to undertake the dementia experience, to help them understand and empathise with people in their community who live with the condition.
Una Brady, Home Manager, said: “The group work hard in the community to empower the people that they help. They really enjoyed the dementia experience as it helped them to walk in the shoes of someone who lives with dementia every day. After they completed the experience the group spent some time with the residents at the home which had a fantastic impact on their well-being. The group are coming back to the home next month to help us run a healthy eating workshop.”
