Welcome to Heywood Court Care Home
You'll find Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood, in the borough of Rochdale, Lancashire.
Here we provide residential care for people with dementia around the clock. We also provide dementia 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.

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.

When Martin from Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood was invited to attend Hopwood County Infant School’s play as the guest of honour he jumped at the chance.
Martin attended the performance with the home’s Chef, whose daughter was one of the performers.
When Martin returned to Heywood Court, he said: “I absolutely loved it! It brought tears to my eyes seeing the youths of today, and I am grateful I'm always given the chance to go out and do things that people who don’t live in care homes can do".
Creating special experiences like this is something our care teams strive to do. If you’d like to see what other experiences they offer, pop into our homes and speak to the residents or the team.

Residents from Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood enjoyed a trip on a Par Bold Barge a couple of weeks ago.
Gillian, Personal Activities Leader, said: “I booked this trip for the residents as it’s a full day out for them, it’s a total change of environment and it doesn’t matter what the weather is as the views are stunning. The residents love floating along the canal with peace and tranquillity without a care in the world.”
Resident Martin said: “It’s just so peaceful being sat watching the nature of the world, not listening to cars or main roads, it’s like we are in a different world for the day without bothering what’s going on in the world. Then we get back home and our tea is on the table, and I slept like a baby.”
Melissa Johnson, Home Manager, said: “Providing special experiences like this one is part and parcel of what we do here at Heywood Court. By making a difference to our residents’ wellbeing it means they’re happier here. Plus care home life needn’t be dull, where’s the fun in that?”
