Welcome to Dounemount Care Home

Care is planned and served according to need, and at different levels - permanent, respite, nursing and residential.

Our old property is full of interesting features and has been tastefully modernised and adapted to purpose. Our extensive gardens have been upgraded to provide more areas for residents to enjoy the fresh air. Inside, many rooms have lovely views towards the River Deveron.

Our newer annexe is purpose-built and offers comfortable en-suite rooms, mostly also with pleasing views.

I just wanted to thank you and your staff team for the care and attention given to John in the short time he spent at Dounemount, we very much appreciate this.

Relative of resident at Dounemount Care Home

The staff at Dounemount were always friendly and helpful. I know that she enjoyed her stay whilst she was able to be up. I was impressed with the standard of nursing care once she became unable to get up.

FSHC-CNJ-LaingBuisson-Award-Success-Nov-2017

16 Nov 2017

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.
