Welcome to Kingfisher House Care Home
You'll find Kingfisher Care Home half a mile from the town centre of Newmarket, Cambridgeshire.
Here, our trained team members, many with NVQ qualifications, provide around the clock care. Residents and families are always at the centre of everything we do and are very actively involved in our care planning and delivery.
Our spacious refurbished property is set in its own grounds on a quiet cul-de-sac. Inside, we have several lounge areas, and large separate dining rooms.
To assist residents and our team members, there's a wide range of equipment, including electrical manual handling equipment, and ultra-modern baths. We also have a resident cat, rabbits in the garden, and several fish tanks.
People who require them are provided with electric, fully profiling beds, and active pressure-relieving mattresses.
I do appreciate all you did to make mum's stay as enjoyable as possible.

You are all wonderful people and have your residents welfare at heart. How can I begin to thank you all - day staff and night staff. You are all very special people, keep up the good work. You can not imagine what you mean to families that you help.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

Kingfisher House Care Home in Newmarket is celebrating the success of two of its Care Assistants after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
Mable Gogo, Care Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Aine and Claire on their success. We’ve all supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the care home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They’re a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Jo Vasey, Four Seasons Health Care Managing Director for the South East of England, said: “We’re all really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentors them through the programme. Here at Four Seasons we’re committed to developing our staff and this is one way we can do that. Well done again! All of your hard work and dedication has paid off.”
