Life at Oak Tree 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 have a diverse programme of activities and entertainment based on the interests of each person living here.
Our activities coordinators get together one-to-one with residents to help them do things like crosswords and writing letters. They also run a shop trolley, bringing people little necessities and favourite treats.
My mother is well looked after and often comments that the staff are nice and helpful and she knows their names. I visit at different times of the day and always feel welcome and there is a good atmosphere.
My aunt having only been at Oaktree for a month it is early days but I find both management and staff efficient and caring, happy to welcome me to see my aunt at any time. It is worrying when a relative you care for first enters a home, you are never sure whether you have done the right thing but Oaktree has allayed my fears. So very well done to all.
My father was resident in this home for only 6 weeks, however the nursing and pastoral care he received was excellent. He was always clean and tidy, and was comfortable. His medical needs were met and when it was apparent he was approaching the end of his life he was treated with dignity and compassion by all members of staff. His relatives and especially his wife were looked after with equal dignity and sympathy.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Subi Shaji from Oak Tree Care Home in Yate has been crowned the Regional Registered Nurse of the Year for the North East of England, South West and Bristol 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 Subi demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Registered Nurse of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including how the overall winner who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference to the daily experience of those in their care.
Subi was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Subi is a valued member of the team. She is an excellent clinician and her calm and supportive nature makes her a pleasure to work with. She is very approachable and supports her team at all times.”
As the winner for the North East of England, South West and Bristol, Subi 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.
Gail Northover, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care Bristol, said: “Subi has proven to be an excellent nurse, Unit Manager and leader. She regularly goes above and beyond, picking up shifts and supporting the Home Manager wherever possible. She is valued by residents, relatives and colleagues alike and is a true asset to the home.”
Amanda Cunningham, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North East of England, South West and Bristol, said: “Subi is a reliable team member who supports the rest of the team on a daily, if not hourly basis. She’s a fantastic team player who can lead the team she manages by her shining example.”
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 approximately 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 ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ to ‘Personal Activities Lead Champion’. 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.”
