Welcome to Hulton Care Home
You'll find Hulton Care Home in Lancashire's picturesque Middleton conservation area.
Around the clock, and to meet residents' needs, we provide high quality specialist support, general assistance with everyday living, respite care to give home carers a much needed break, and end-of-life care at a time residents and their families need specialist help and support. Some of residents stay long-term, others short-term.
Ours is a modern purpose-built home. Our mature gardens boast flowerbeds and a large patio area where residents enjoy the peaceful surroundings and afternoon teas in the summer.
Inside, people pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges and our large, bright conservatory. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Hulton Care Home
The people who live here get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan our programme of pastimes, diversions and entertainment.
Hulton Care Home's rota includes arts and crafts, baking and gentle gardening, as well as quizzes and musical events. We encourage a mix of individual and group activities.
We love to organise regular outings to local attractions, shopping trips and visits to the theatre.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each warm and welcoming 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.
I was dreading the though of my father being in a care home and before my dad had dementia, so did he. He has been there for a year now and in this time he has become happier, settled and always smiles. I couldn't speak highly enough of the staff, they are truly wonderful and dedicated. I know for a fact he is being cared for and looked after, he wouldn't smile so much if he wasn't.
My husband and I were given a very warm welcome when he became a resident at Hulton Care last December. The staff were and are very friendly and there is a homely atmosphere. It didn't take my husband long to settle in and he really enjoys the food. There have been just a few problems but on each occasion the manager has been available to listen and has rectified the situation very quickly.
My mum has only been at the above home for a matter of weeks - before she came here we had to feed her and she never had much to say, she had given up. But now the change in my mum is unbelievable. She is feeding herself, has had her hair done and watches TV in the lounge with the other ladies. The staff are always speaking to her and that makes her feel like a person and not a number.
This is like a home from home for my mother and I cannot believe how well she seems after such a short time here. Definitely a great place for her.
Warm and friendly.
We were very worried when the decision was made for my brother to go into care. The truth is our worries have totally been proved to be unfounded. He has settled in well and the staff always talk to him not at him.
Dreading putting my brother-in-law in a home. How mistaken can you be?, from management all the way to the cleaner the attitude and care is second to none.

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.

As the witching hour struck, Four Seasons homes across the UK were welcoming their own witches, warlocks, vampires and mummies for tea.
Although nobody went our trick or treating, our residents got up to a lot of spooktacular behaviour to celebrate the day, with the odd sweet treat thrown in every now and then.
Our care teams pulled out all of the stops to transform the homes from lovely warm environments, to something Casper would be happy to haunt.
At Springfield Care Home in Blackburn everyone dressed to impress, with one team member seemingly losing their head in the celebrations. Some of their ghostly visitors seemed to settle right at home, bringing their very own cave to one of the units. The residents enjoyed seeing the team channel their inner monsters.
A jilted bride was one of the strange spirits that rocked up to Hillview Care Home in Rawtenstall’s party. Joined by a pirate, devil and several ghosts, the residents listened to how love had turned sour for the beautiful yet pale bride.
In Ilkeston Haddon House’s Halloween Party had a warmer feel thanks to local entertainer John West who had everyone doing the jittering jive or wearisome waltz. Residents and their families enjoyed all of the Halloween fun that the home provided and had enough sweet treats to prevent any tricks happening at the party.
At Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield, the Home Manager and Deputy Manager were both sent to the stocks, all to raise money for special experiences for the residents in their care. The rest of the team encouraged the residents to throw sponges at the managers, after all what’s Halloween without a few tricks?
Meanwhile in Morecambe, residents, relatives and the care team at Morecambe Bay Care Home enjoyed some apple bobbing and other Halloween fun. The same could also be said of the residents up in Pennine Lodge Care Home in Carlisle.
The team at Domnall Intermediate Care Centre in Belfast pulled out all of the stops dressing to impress the residents as they wold choose who would be crowned the Queen or King of Halloween.
Residents at Kilburn Care Home in Belper created their own sweet treats by decorating cookies and carving pumpkins before putting the care team through their paces to identify the best and worst dressed for their Halloween celebrations.
A gruesome time was had by all.
