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.

Here at Four Seasons we value all of our team members. We encourage and support them to complete courses to help them develop their skills, enabling them to further enhance their career.
One such way for Care Assistants to do this, is for them to complete the Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) 12 week training programme. Whilst completing this course, the Care Assistants can learn how to support nurses with certain duties potentially freeing the nurse to deal with a more complex issue.
Nine of our Care Assistant in Northern Ireland enrolled onto this programme, and on Monday 4th September they successfully graduated as Care Home Assistant Practitioners.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Northern Ireland said: “The graduation of the 9 Care Home Assistant Practitioners in Northern Ireland is a hugely significant achievement as these special pioneers are the very first in such a role across the Care Home sector here.
"Having Mary Hinds the Director of Nursing from the Public Health Agency and HSC in NI along to present the awards has reinforced the positive impact that CHAPs have in delivering the best experience of care for our residents."

The team at Heywood Court Care Home in Heywood wanted to share their experience of the LGB & T workshop they went to at the beginning of the August.
Melissa Johnson, Home Manager, said: "The work shop helped the team recognise the value of the LGB & T community. It enhanced their understanding and ability to support others. We have incorporated LGB & T into resident/relative meetings and provided resource books and newsletters."
One team member said: "I found the workshop very informative and a real eye opener. The resource book is good especially for LGB & T people as things have changed so much."
