My dad moved into Chasedale at the start of May having been in another care home since January. He has Alzheimer's and spent his time at the previous home trying to escape, hitting staff, refusing to eat and generally being very distressed. Since moving to Chasedale he has put on 6KG of weight, eats all of his meals and has settled in a way that I didn't think was possible. Every single member of staff I've met there knows him and can talk with love about how he's doing. They clearly understand his condition and know how to enable him. I live too far away to be a frequent visitor, however the staff know me when I arrive - always unannounced - and always know where he is and what and how he's doing. He's been calmer than he's been for months, he's more able to communicate because he's being engaged in activity and stimulated during the day rather than left alone in bed in his room as he was in his previous home. I am so impressed by Chasedale and it's staff. It's a great environment, lovely people and the best decision I've made. I can't recommend it to highly, it's brought peace and sanity back into my life knowing my Dad is genuinely in his home - settled, cared for, safe and loved.
He was well looked after, very kind to him. Always kept him very clean. No complaints.
My mother and father were both accommodated at Chasedale - mum after a massive stroke, dad to early Dementia - within two years mum passed away - dad still remains - the management, Lynette and Sammy give so much respect to both parents now to dad - and their other residents.
Dad's carers actually "care" about the residents - always giving updates etc - even though I am a very regular visitor today I feel reassured that dad's needs are being met which allows me some quality time when I do visit my dad.
If me or my husband would ever have to go in a home we would like to come here on Alnwick as the care is outstanding.
I couldn't wish for better care, the girls have given my husband over the years. I can relax when I'm at home knowing he is safe and extremely well cared for. The staff are fantastic.
I feel that my husband is well cared for and treated with respect and dignity. I am very satisfied with Chasedale.
My father has no movement whatsoever and has never left his bed for 3 and half years. The nursing care he receives on the Chasedale nursing ward is excellent. The only time he has ever had bed sores is when he was moved into hospital for three days. Not only is the physical care excellent but the staff are friendly, helpful and generally could not do more for him. My father can still communicate, even with his dementia and the staff are always in and out of his room to keep him company. They have all without exception built up a close relationship with him.
Very happy with all care and how my husband is and when i visited they are all kind and help with all my needs and my husbands.
Chasedale is 100% excellent care. Perfect for my husband, he has been cared for for 5 years- excellent. Thank you to everyone.
My husband was a resident at Chasedale for almost eight years. I didn't choose the care home it was by chance my husband came here. Had I looked around I don't think I would have chosen Chasedale as it didn't look as nice as some other places I had seen, However from day one he was cared for by wonderful team of people who over the years became like a family. They gave him love and excellent care and I can only say I am so grateful this is where my husband ended his days. He couldnt have been in a better place.

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.

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.”
