Welcome to Edenvale Care Centre
You'll find Edenvale on the outskirts of Limavady, County Londonderry.
Here we provide high quality nursing, and nursing for people with dementia, in a warm and welcoming environment. For our service in this field, we hold gold PEARL accreditation.
Ours is a purpose-built, refurbished and redecorated two-storey property. We're in a great location, within easy reach of shops, public transport, and other amenities, and with a quick road to the town centre.
We have an enclosed garden, including a sensory garden, and furnished patio areas. People living here love sitting out in these spaces.
Indoors are four comfortable lounges on each level, with flat-screen TVs, and DVD players. With several quiet lounges too, people can choose where to spend their time, and entertain their guests.
Several of our bedrooms have en-suites. We love residents to personalise their rooms, and choose their own colour schemes, to make them feel more homely.
Life at Edenvale Care Centre
Our activities coordinator ensures each person living here can enjoy a busy social life if they want to. They also help residents get involved in the hobbies and pastimes they choose.
Our varied programme includes handicrafts, quizzes, gardening, and trips out to local places of interest. Family and friends are welcome to visit any time.
Catering is high quality. We consult residents and their families on their preferences and any dietary requirements. Chef then prepares menus and meals to match, while offering the best combination of nutrition and flavour.
My Mother is so glad to be back at Edenvale since the refurbishment. The staff always keep me well informed and are very friendly and approachable. The staff are more than attentive to all my Mother's needs within the Home.
I am more than happy with the Edenvale, the staff and management are so caring and helpful towards my wife. I now know I made the right decision in moving my wife in to Edenvale Care Centre.

On any given day, 2500 hospital beds are occupied by patients for whom treatment has finished but are often too frail to return home. When they do, it can often lead to a breakdown in the individual’s care and a return to hospital.
This leads to, what is termed ‘bed blocking’, where beds are occupied by people medically fit for discharge and the hospital is unable to free beds for those requiring urgent treatment.
Working alongside local authorities and care commissioning groups, Four Seasons has successfully trialled ‘rehabilitation homes’ offering step-down care for elderly people ready to leave hospital but not yet ready to return home.
In addition to caring for the needs of the elderly person, carers are able to observe the person sufficiently to provide an effective assessment of their individual care needs and re-build their confidence as they return to their community.
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “In an ideal world care homes would be a hub in their local community that would provide the care and support individuals need. This can range from short-term solutions like step down care and intermediate care, where someone is with us for as little as 6 weeks, to a longer term solution where we address their care needs on a more permanent basis.”
Step down care philosophy is helping embed an effective and pragmatic approach to care within the Health and Social Care System and feedback has been positive.
One lady who, after spending three weeks in hospital following a fall, resided at a Four Seasons Care Home in Cricklewood had the following to say: “Coming to the home was a nice simple change, but it made a big difference. Obviously everyone is different, but coming to a care home you have the opportunity to get up and socialise with the people in there, as opposed to just sitting in bed all day. I enjoyed my time at the home, especially as I was never on my own.” Whilst this lady was in the care home, the provisions were being put into place to ensure she had all the support she needed at home.
Another lady, who used a similar service in a Four Seasons Home, enthused: “It’ puts you on your feet and gives you back your confidence.

Nicola-Anne Pengelly is a resident experience care specialist. She is a regional Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) lead and a degree qualified tissue viability nurse specialist.
I began my career with Four Seasons Health Care in August 2015 as Deputy Home manager at Catchpole court. I was encouraged to develop my clinical skills and by April 2016, I was appointed to a regional resident experience team. Rather than listing all the reasons about why nursing within FSHC, and care homes, is such a rewarding experience, I think it will be more powerful to share with you just one short story.
A little while ago I carried out a pre-admission assessment for an older gentleman who was living with cancer. His cancer had progressed and he now required specialist palliative and end-of-life care. While talking with the gentleman I noticed that he appeared distracted. This was reasonable given his prognosis but I asked the gentleman if he was ok. I noticed he was looking out of the window, so I joined him and realised he was looking at dogs in a near-by park. I remarked that I would soon be walking my dog when I returned home. At this point the gentleman began to cry, he revealed that even though he knew he needed nursing care, he did not want to go into a care home because he didn’t want to be separated from his dog during his last days. The gentleman’s dog, Skye, was thirteen years old and had belonged to his recently deceased wife.
This shared communication between the gentleman and me set a chain of events in motion. These events culminated in Skye coming to live with the gentleman during his last days in our care home. All the care team helped with taking care of Skye. I even wrote care plans for Skye! For the final three weeks of the gentleman’s life, Skye was by his side. Talking about a good death sometimes seems unusual but this experience was so important to me as a nurse, a carer…a human being. When the gentleman passed away, he was listening to his favourite radio station and cuddling his dog Skye…just as he wanted.
Being a nurse at FSHC has been so rewarding and to share my knowledge and my passion with others is what I live for. Providing ‘special resident experiences’ is not just a mission statement, it is a way of life. I have been honoured to be heavily involved in the development of our care home assistant practitioners (CHAPs) at FSHC. This role has enabled be to facilitate the learning and development of others across England.
I am grateful to be working for a company who has the passion and enthusiasm for driving quality improvement in practice. I am excited for where four seasons is going and know we are putting the resident at the centre of everything we are doing.
