It's essential to us that people living here feel at home and make their own choices, as far as possible, regarding their care.

Our property is close to public transport links, with well maintained gardens that are especially colourful in summer.

Inside, we have two large lounges, a quiet lounge, an activities lounge, and two dining rooms. Our corridors are spacious, so people in wheelchairs and hoists can easily pass each other.

Our bedrooms have en-suites, and can be redecorated to their resident's taste.

Life at Chichester Court Care Home

A carer and a resident

At long last I can relax knowing that my mam is being cared for 24 hrs a day and she is safe. The staff here are lovely.

Maureen Buckingham, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

I can't do anything for myself, so the staff do everything for me with dignity and satisfaction. I'm looked after very well and I would recommend this care home to anybody.

Joan Brown, Resident / Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

Highly recommended. The décor and the care.

Maureen Porritt, Mother of Resident/Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

I feel safe and secure in the home.

Doreen McDonald, Resident / Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

I feel that most of the staff are very caring and I feel safe in the home.

Jean Gray, Resident / Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

I feel my husband is looked after well, and he is comfortable.

Elizabeth Smith, Wife of Resident/Service User at Chichester Court Care Home

I recently accompanied my mother on an unexpected and long drawn out visit to hospital. We were there for six and a half hours before returning to the care home at almost 9pm. While we were away there was a shift change but all of the staff had been brought up to speed with our situation, and they were fantastic. Within minutes of getting back to her room, my mother needed to use the bathroom, at the moment she needs the assistance of two carers so I popped out into the corridor to find help and two very cheerful carers came straight away. They were very efficient and caring towards my mother, helping here into her nightdress after she has used the bathroom. As they settled her into her armchair another carer arrived with a very much needed cup of tea and my mother declared "its good to be back" This was a huge step forward as she had lived alone and very independently for 26 years before coming into the care home four months ago. A short while later, a nurse arrived with my mothers medication, she was professional, courteous and friendly. After a very arduous hospital visit, I went home knowing my mother was in very good hands and in a very safe place. Peace of mind is so important to relatives of residents.

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.
