Life at Grosvenor Park Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures each resident has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to each day. There are group pastimes and diversions, and one-to-one activities for those preferring quieter moments.
We run shopping trips to town and local places of interest, and entertainment evenings. Local churches also do regular visits.
Mum was reluctant to enter residential care, she loves it now she is there.
Company of her own age has been wonderful for her and the security has helped her settle well. She now has no worries and seems much happier.
Since my mum came in here, I am quite satisfied and happy with the way she has been looked after.
I can highly recommend this care home. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. My husband has settled very well here and the staff have gone out of their way to make sure he is happy, not always easy!, but they do their best.
I see mum every 3/4 weeks. The staff and management are all so nice. It is one of the best care homes you can stay in. My mum is very happy to be one of the residents here. The staff and management are so very helpful to the residents and the families.
The staff are very friendly and polite also patient with residents. The management go out of their way to help in any way possible. There is always different activities for residents if they want them and the management and staff are always looking for more things to do.
I have been a resident since 2006 and I have been very happy. The staff and carers are excellent. I would recommend anyone thinking of bringing a relative to this home that they will be well looked after.
I would recommend this care home as all residents appear friendly, dedicated and efficient and the residents all seem to be happy and content.
I am quite happy living here, the home is comfortable. The staff tend to my needs and are very good.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Two Darlington care homes actively using a quality of life programme to improve feedback services for their residents have earned an award for the scheme.
Grosvenor Park Care Home, off Burnside Road, and Riverside View Care Home, off Hutton Avenue, were brought into the digital age with iPads being used to get residents and their families to fill in questionnaires and give general feedback on any aspect of care.
The system, introduced by care home owner Four Seasons Healthcare, has now been recognised with an award from the UK Customer Experience panel as the homes move from paper-based copies to online responses.
Amanda Cunningham, Regional Managing Director of Four Seasons Healthcare, said: “This feedback has enabled our care teams to find and fix issues or niggles.
“When the majority of our residents are of the generation who don’t like to make a fuss, our quality of life programme has helped us to uncover customer needs that they might otherwise not have expressed.”
The Darlington homes are both rated “good” overall by the Care Quality Commission.
