Welcome to Elm Bank Care Home

You'll find Elm Bank in Hexham, Northumberland. Here we provide high quality care 24 hours a day.

Our Dementia Care Framework Plaque

We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.

People living here have varying needs, from specialist support and help with everyday living, to just needing a helping hand to retain some independence.

We offer residential care, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some individuals stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.

Ours is a modern purpose-built home. Its mature gardens have flower beds, and a patio area where residents enjoy the lovely views.

Inside, people pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the property. Many rooms have French windows onto the patio, so residents can easily get outside.

All these spaces are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great for inviting friends and families to when they visit.

Life at Elm Bank Care Home

A carer and a resident

My father spent the last few weeks of his life here, and they could not possibly have been happier, more comfortable or more dignified. The standard of true, loving care is quite outstanding. It is a matter of enduring comfort to me and my family that at the close of his life he was so settled and so well looked after; and at his death the whole family was treated with wonderful consideration.

David Oliver, Son of Resident/Service User at Elm Bank Care Home

Excellent level of care in EMI/Dementia unit.

Desmond Richards, Son of Resident/Service User at Elm Bank Care Home

Staff are incredibly kind and thoughtful. I do think the staff work very hard for not enough remuneration, which has to have a knock on effect with recruitment.

Jani Keep, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Elm Bank Care Home

My father has now been in here for nine months. All the staff (management to domestic) are all very friendly and professional. The carers are very good, treating dad with dignity and care. Overall the family are very happy with Dene Grange.

Margaret Telfer, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Elm Bank Care Home

I find the home very caring and staff very obliging and helpful.

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.
