Welcome to Heywood Court Care Home
You'll find Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood, in the borough of Rochdale, Lancashire.
Here we provide care around the clock, including general nursing, residential care, and specialised nursing and residential care for people with dementia.
We also provide respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the Home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Heywood Court Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences and we have a full and varied calendar of pastimes, diversions and outings.
We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly, and there's always something going on from quizzes to musical events. We also organise regular trips to local places of interest including the library, park and the museum, and we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room.
We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time, and enjoy catering for residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
my mum was in another care home in heywood. She got out of there and was found on the patio, consequently she was very ill. I decided to move herto, heywood court, what a good choice I made. when she first moved in the doctor came to see her and said it was the end of life. The staff nursed her round the clock and now she is 100% better, unfortunatly she has lost the use of her legs. I couldnt ask for better care and would recommend heywood court 100%. All the staff from the cleaners to the carers are all great with the residents.
Unfortunately my mum Lilian died last week, I was with her at the time along with two of the carers, they were excellent, we were asked if my mum's health deteriorated would we like her to go to hospital? She was 93 years old & this was her home, so of course we wanted her to stay here, so glad we did, a lovely room & in the end my mum was very peaceful before she died. her health had not been very good for a year or two but all the staff at Heywood court took great care of her.
Trying to avoid using names but please thank the two girls that were on duty on Thursday 11th oct at 19:30. they were great! Once again THANK-YOU.
We moved my Grandmother to this home in July 2012. The family felt that the two previous care homes that she lived in gave poor quality of care. Staff at Heywood Court have provided excellent care to my Grandmother and the atmosphere in the home is very warm and welcoming. My Grandmother greatly improved over the first few weeks and it was lovely to see her being well cared for by the staff. Staff keep family informed of any changes and are very supportive to residents and their families. I also like the fact that this home seems to have more staff than other homes which gives you confidence that they can meet the needs of the residents.
If all care homes were like Heywood Court then no one would need to worry about getting dementia and having to live in a care home.... Other care homes should aim to have care and standards like here.
The staff at Heywood Court are wonderful. They make mum feel like a queen and treat her with such respect as well. They ensure families are kept up to date with everything that's going on with their family member.
I am happy with the care at Heywood Court. The home is a very good standard. The staff do an excellent job. Very friendly and helpful, music playing throughout the day, tea, coffee, juices and cakes in the afternoon before evening meal, all are excellent turned out, clean no smells, everybody happy. I would recommend this care home to everybody. Lots of activities, parties, Christmas, birthday parties, dancing when they bring entertainment in everybody joins in. Most of all my mum is happy.
Good care provided. very clean and tidy care home, comfortable lounges for residents and visitors. Medication could be better managed. Resident are kept in a clean condition.

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.
