Specialist care, including in our dedicated dementia unit, is offered at various levels to meet individual needs.
Ours is a purpose-built care home in landscaped gardens. Close by are shops, a pub, and a small park with duck pond.

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.

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.

Oak Tree Care Home in Yate has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Oak Tree Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.
The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.
The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an event for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them during an Alice in Wonderland themed party on Friday 21st April..
John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons in Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, South West England and Bristol said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”
At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.
Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments. The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.
The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.

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.”
