We arrange shopping trips and outside activities. And we stage parties for Christmas, Halloween, Easter and other celebrations throughout the year.
This care home looked after my mother for some 3 and a half years, during which time she suffered progressively from Altzheimers Disease.
The care provided was excellent and the whole team dealt with her in a very caring and loving manner until her death on the 27th September 2015. Support after her death was also very considerate and sympathetic. We have nothing but the highest regard for all the staff without exception and would fully recommend it to all needing care and support.
My Mum became a resident of this home after recovery from a fall and a time in hospital. Very soon she was mobile again and with the encouragement and patience of the staff she soon loved her new home. She had a happy 3 and a half years there and the staff were excellent as progressively Altzheimers Disease took her from us. The care and love given was un-paralleled. The whole team without exception dealt with her as if she was their own mother until her death on the 27th September 2015. Their support for the family after her death was considerate, sympathetic and they were clearly distressed themselves having lost her. We have nothing but the highest regard for all the staff without exception and would fully recommend it to all needing care and support.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

As the witching hour struck, Four Seasons homes across the UK were welcoming their own witches, warlocks, vampires and mummies for tea.
Although nobody went our trick or treating, our residents got up to a lot of spooktacular behaviour to celebrate the day, with the odd sweet treat thrown in every now and then.
Our care teams pulled out all of the stops to transform the homes from lovely warm environments, to something Casper would be happy to haunt.
At Springfield Care Home in Blackburn everyone dressed to impress, with one team member seemingly losing their head in the celebrations. Some of their ghostly visitors seemed to settle right at home, bringing their very own cave to one of the units. The residents enjoyed seeing the team channel their inner monsters.
A jilted bride was one of the strange spirits that rocked up to Hillview Care Home in Rawtenstall’s party. Joined by a pirate, devil and several ghosts, the residents listened to how love had turned sour for the beautiful yet pale bride.
In Ilkeston Haddon House’s Halloween Party had a warmer feel thanks to local entertainer John West who had everyone doing the jittering jive or wearisome waltz. Residents and their families enjoyed all of the Halloween fun that the home provided and had enough sweet treats to prevent any tricks happening at the party.
At Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield, the Home Manager and Deputy Manager were both sent to the stocks, all to raise money for special experiences for the residents in their care. The rest of the team encouraged the residents to throw sponges at the managers, after all what’s Halloween without a few tricks?
Meanwhile in Morecambe, residents, relatives and the care team at Morecambe Bay Care Home enjoyed some apple bobbing and other Halloween fun. The same could also be said of the residents up in Pennine Lodge Care Home in Carlisle.
The team at Domnall Intermediate Care Centre in Belfast pulled out all of the stops dressing to impress the residents as they wold choose who would be crowned the Queen or King of Halloween.
Residents at Kilburn Care Home in Belper created their own sweet treats by decorating cookies and carving pumpkins before putting the care team through their paces to identify the best and worst dressed for their Halloween celebrations.
A gruesome time was had by all.
