Welcome to Dolphin View Care Home
You'll find Dolphin View on the harbour in Amble, Northumberland.
Here we provide person-centred general nursing and residential care, in a friendly and welcoming environment. We encourage residents' families to become involved with our home and its daily activities, and aim to promote dignity, choice and respect for everyone
Ours is a purpose-built nursing home with ample car parking for visitors. We have two floors which can be accessed by stairs or passenger lift, two lounges, and a dining room. There are dedicated baths and toilets for residents with disabilities, and access to a garden area which offers lovely views across the harbour.
All rooms are singles with hand basins. Bathrooms, showers and toilets are close to each bedroom and communal area.
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.
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.
It's excellent, we are well fed and well looked after. Everyone's very helpful.
I highly recommend Dolphin View. Staff, food, rooms are lovely. A very friendly atmosphere.
Absolutely over the moon with my standard of care. The staff, management need a medal. Very friendly and caring.
A very good home. Staff very friendly and caring. Kiss at breakfast and dinner ha ha. I would highly recommend.
I find all the carers very helpful, they have a difficult job and they do it very well. We go out on the bus and have lots of activities. I highly recommend the home to other potential residents.
A very friendly caring environment. Food and rooms are inviting. Would recommend this establishment, lots of entertainment. I am very happy here.
The home is very good , it's very clean and the food is good. The bedrooms are lovely. The staff are very pleasant. If you want anything you get it. The staff will go out of their way for you, you can't get better than that.
I have been here just over 8 years. I like the company. We are lucky to be here. The food is pretty good. The care staff are good. We are lucky I have had home help in the past and they were no good you can't do much in the time they are there. We have everything here.

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.
