Life at Osborne Court Care Home
We encourage people living here to follow hobbies and interests, but each is treated as an individual and there's no pressure to get involved.
There's a wide programme of social activities planned so residents can join in the home's daily life and feel part of our little community. Family and friends are welcome to visit their loved ones any time.
Our chef prepares nutritionally balanced menus based on what residents like to eat, using fresh local produce and traditional cooking methods to create flavoursome meals.
Menus change changed daily, and we cater for each person's dietary and taste preferences.
My wife has been in a nursing home for 5 months only, she has alzheimers and cannot do anything for herself. My family and I visit nearly every day, but when we are not there, the carers and the rest of the staff do a great job in looking after my wife, which my family and I thank them for what they are doing.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Osborne Court Care Home in Bristol has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Osborne Court 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 a vintage tea party on Thursday 25th May 2017.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the South West of 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.

Residents have been welcoming some very special guests into their home over the past couple of months.
Becket Hall Day Nursery, have been encouraging their children to interact with the older generation. They regularly visit the residents at Osborne Court Care Home in Bristol.
The residents and children get up to all sorts of activities including arts and crafts, baking, singing and dancing.
Chantelle Braford, Deputy Manager at Osborne Court, said: “People living in the home and the children really enjoy their time together. The residents are always pleased to see the children and talk about the visits for days afterwards. It is heart-warming to see how they interact so well together.
“Some of our residents are grandparents, but others have no family able to visit them so the children have a special place in their lives. The children bring them out of themselves and they become happier and more engaged. Similarly, not all the children who come here have grandparents of their own so the residents fill that gap in their lives.
“One little boy who has been coming here has become really fond of one resident, so much so that his parents have asked if he could still be brought to visit with (her/him?) when he moves up from the nursery group.”
The Nursery Manager, said: “The relationship between the two generations is lovely.”
One resident said: “They [the children] really make your day. They are lovely children.”
Some of the touching moments from a recent visit were captured by a video created by BBC Radio Bristol. This warmed the heart of the nation and has received over 5 million views on social media. This following encourages BBC's 'The One Show' to get in touch and ask to feature the interaction on their programme.
Tune into 'The One Show' Thursday 16th March 2017 at 7pm to see these heart warming moments for yourself.
