Welcome to Henderson House Care Home
You'll find Henderson House in Dalgety Bay, Fife. Here our registered nurses and care staff deliver 24-hour person-centred care, treating residents as individuals.
Many of our care assistants have SVQ level 3 or 2, and each resident has an individual personal plan, covering their needs and setting goals.
We have views to lovely trees in the distance. Just outside the home there's a bus stop, and we have good road links to major motorways. There's a railway station just five minutes away.
Our home has two main lounge dining rooms, and four smaller lounges. We have a large garden, and redeveloped sitting areas for residents and their visitors.
All our bedrooms are single with en-suites and garden views.
Life at Henderson House Care Home
Each week our full-time activities coordinator holds discussions with residents so that a varied programme of meaningful pastimes, diversions and entertainment can be arranged.
We have a minibus, and outings are arranged to places of interest; and a lovely hairdressing salon just for residents.
Our garden has three raised beds, easily accessible to people in wheelchairs, where residents enjoy planting flowers and vegetables.
Our dementia unit has a sports room recreating the atmosphere of a real bar. Here people play darts, dominos and bar games.
Nutritious meals are home cooked, with menu surveys conducted regularly to ensure people living in our home are eating the food they like.
Staff made my sister's life meaningful and comfortable.
We appreciate the dedication and personal attention given to our father.
The care given to mum over her last two weeks was exceptional.
My wife has been contented and enjoyed your company.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

A special card landed on the mat at Henderson House Care Home in Dalgety Bay, as one of their residents celebrated turning 100.
Winifred celebrated her 100th year with her family, friends and the care team.
Anne-Marie McKay, Personal Activities Leader, said: “We arranged for lots of special things to celebrate Winifred’s special day, which included Brandon the bag piper , who she loves. We also welcomed in local line-dancers which everyone enjoyed. It was a lovely way to celebrate the centennial.”
Everyone at Four Seasons wishes you many happy returns Winifred.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.
Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.
“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”
Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).
Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way.”
