Welcome to Holywood Care Home
Holywood Care Home in Belfast provides personalised 24-hour nursing care for frail, elderly residents.
Ours is a comfortable, purpose-built home set in extensive grounds on a hill next to Redburn Country Park – so it’s ideal for those who enjoy the outdoors.
At Holywood, 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 them to take part in all decisions – contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Holywood Care Home
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained.
We offer a wide range of things to do, including one-to-one activities, skittles, bowls, bingo and watching classic films. Plus, a hairdresser drops in two days a week to provide a bit of pampering.
My father has recently been resident in Holywood Care Home during his final illness. The level of care which he received during this time was excellent. The staff were all extremely attentive to his needs and treated him with kindness and dignity.
I would also add that my whole family were also made to feel welcome as we sat with our father in his final days. The staff did everything that they could to make this very difficult time easier for us all. We all appreciate their help and kindness.
My mum is in Holywood Care home. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and mum is very happy there. I know when I'm not at the home that she is well cared for. Also the staff and management make sure you are involved in any decisions.

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."
