Welcome to Ladymead Care Home
You'll find Ladymead in the Wiltshire village of Wroughton, on the outskirts of Swindon.
Here our excellent team provides the highest quality nursing care, including palliative care, to older people according to their needs. We work closely with the hospice next door, and are previous winners of the Pride of Swindon Award.
Ours is a purpose-built home, much improved and refurbished, with accommodation on two floors, each containing a lounge and dining room. All our single and double bedrooms have en-suites, and they all have profiling beds.
Life at Ladymead Care Home
Our activities coordinator visits each resident daily for one-to-one sessions and is trained to provide gentle seated exercises.
Each day there are diversions and goings-on, including hand massage, entertainment, skittles, quizzes, target games, debates, reminiscing, music for health, outings to garden centres and wildlife parks, and visits to the local theatre.
We also host coffee mornings and raffles to raise funds for charity. Residents' relatives are always welcome to stay for meals.
My mother has recently passed away after being at this home for about 3 months. All the staff gave her the most compassionate and good care that anyone could ask for. They were also wonderful to all of our family. I thank them that her passing was so peaceful.
It's a lovely place. I have been here 2 years I just love Ladymead, we have lots of parties. Lots of fun, the staff are excellent, very kind. Meals very enjoyable could not get better at the Ritz.
I can recommend this home to anyone.
The caring is brilliant, its home from home always smells clean and is clean. Entertainment is excellent if and when I may need to go in somewhere it would be here, I cannot fault one single thing about this caring beautiful home and the amazing people, management, kitchen cleaning and caring staff they are all like family to the residents.
My mother moved from her house in West Sussex to Ladymead Care Home in July 2014 when family (sons & daughter-in-laws) living close to her emigrated.
Ladymead was selected as when we viewed it with out an appointment we were very impressed cleanliness and layout of the premises.
It is within 5 minutes walking distance from our home which is very convenient and enables us to visit regularly.
The management and all the staff have made every possible effort to assist her to adjust to the new life she is now leading and they keep us informed.
We have found that they do genuinely care for all the residents.
Mum has been a resident at Ladymead for over 2 years now and during this time she has always received extremely good care. I have visited the home most days at varying times and always found the staff to be welcoming and friendly, also caring and supportive to both residents and families. The food is home cooked and nutritious, accommodating for individual needs. The rooms are clean, bright and homely decorated. The Entertainment Officer arranges a variety of seasonal social gatherings/events/entertainment for the residents during the year including recent visits from Irish dancers and a Country and Western Singer. Dominoes and Bingo are weekly events along with a Sing A Long. A very caring team. I could not wish more for my Mum.
First class. My mum has been a resident for one year. I visit regular as much as several times in a week (as work allows). I note there is always a consistency and calmness when I visit and I am always made welcome. The staff are fantastic and always encourage mum to join in the activities. If medical or doctors are required I am always informed. I cannot fault Ladymead at all.
Ladymead has a fantastic reputation and it lives up to it. Lovely spirit amongst the staff and excellent food. "Simply the best, better than all the rest". I have been at Ladymead for three years and hopefully fro many years to come.
It's lovely. The staff are good and they talk to me. They try and do everything I ask of them. This is the best place to be. I even met and old acquaintance here at Ladymead I am in my nineties and he is in his nineties, we knew each othere when we were teenagers. It's small world, a well run home.
In a time of extreme difficulty the staff without exception have made the transition as smooth as possible. They have been an incredible help throughout the whole process.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Residents from Ladymead Care Home in Swindon took their pitch side seats as they took in all of the sights of the Wroughton Carnival.
KC Byju Vasudevan, Home Manager, explained: “When people think of care homes, they tend to have the mental image that their loved ones are left to their own devices day in day out. That’s not the case at Four Seasons, and certainly not at Ladymead.
“We like to provide special resident experiences for the people who live in our home. A number of the residents had mentioned the Wroughton Carnival, and we noticed its route went straight past Ladymead. We got all the residents ready and took them outside to prepare for the show. Once outside everyone had an ice cream and watched the floats as they went by.”
