Life at Dolphin View Care Home

A carer and a resident

My husband has used the respite care at Dolphin View on 3 times now while I have taken a short break, he suffers from Parkinson's disease, I have found the staff to be exceptionally friendly and helpful, his medication is always given on time, and when I collect him he always reports how jovial the staff are and how well he has been looked after.
Everyone working in Dolphin View seem to to really care about the patients, this is a great comfort when you are leaving a loved one even for a short break.

Kathleen Jones, Wife of Resident/Service User at Dolphin View Care Home

I have been in the home three years now and I feel better than ever. I am very well looked after by all the staff. I like all the staff they are very good. The meals are very good, I have put on a lot of weight since I moved in due to the healthy eating and all my friends and family say I look better. I find the activities very good and I get taken out for walks which I enjoy. The home is in a lovely location overlooking the sea. I am not far from my family and friends. I find the new manager very good, she has made some good changes and think she is going to do the home the world of good.

Northwest-CHAPs-Graduation-Dec-2017

5 Jan 2018

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.
