Welcome to Holly Court Care Home
You'll find Holly Court in Salford, Lancashire.
Around the clock, and to meet residents' needs, we provide high quality specialist support, general assistance with everyday living, dedicated residential and nursing care for those with dementia, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some residents stay long-term, others short-term.
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.
At Holly Court Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Holly Court Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences and we have a full and varied calendar. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly, and there's always something going on from quizzes to musical events.
We 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.
We have various pets living at the home including a rabbit and some budgies, and other pets visit us occasionally.
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.
Overall everything is excellent, most importantly is the dignity and care to all of the residents. I would recommend the home to anyone.
The Holly Court Care Home on entering is welcoming, the whole staff are dedicated to the care all of the people there,treating them with care and compassion. Each of the rooms have belongings ie. pictures, ornaments etc. from their own home environment.
The corridors are all music memorabilia, bright and colourful. The dining room and lounge are bright and clean.
There is not nasty odour/ smell, smells fresh. There's plenty of entertainment in the home for the residents, also outings in groups and lastly there's a hairdresser once a week. The lady residents have make-up on and their nails done. In other words, I have no worries at all my aunt being there, she is 90 years old.
Some very good staff, who interact with residents, however some staff who cant speak English very well, therefore residents can't understand them very well, and consequently these staff don't chat or acknowledge residents a lot of the time.

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.

Angela Clarke, Regional Manager for Greater Manchester has been crowned Regional Manager of the Year for the North West of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Angela demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including the individual demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and the ability to prioritise the day to day challenges of the role. This individual has supported their homes and helped them to achieve the company’s strategic priorities whilst managing external stakeholders and keeping special resident experiences at the centre of everything they do.
Angela was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Angela is a forward thinking, innovative, inspirational leader. She demonstrates a high level of commitment to all her homes. Angela’s strength and determination helps her to guide her teams. She always goes that extra mile to listen, support, problem solve and find solutions that work. Her professionalism has no bounds and reiterates that our main purpose is to provide the best possible care we can.”
As the winner for the North West of England, Angela is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North West of England, said: “Angela is a very supportive Regional Manager who always gives all of her best. She is well respected by her team and her peers. She has a natural ability to build her team and find solutions to problems which can be difficult, whilst multi-tasking her day to day job. It’s those extra few minutes that Angela will find for her team that has helped her to be a stabilizing force in her region. Well done Angela!”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
