Events across Scotland helped to celebrate our innovative Quality of Life (QoL) Programme as it turned 1.
The Quality of Life Programme is a unique system which helps us to gather feedback from anyone who visits or lives in the homes. This can then be acted upon ensuring our homes are providing the best quality of life for those in their care.
John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man, said: “The road show started on Monday 12th September and by Thursday 15th September most of the Scottish homes were visited as part of the road show. It gave people the opportunity to meet the team, discuss Quality of Life and find out more about our company values.”
Some of the pictures scrolling across the top of the page give you a flavour of the types of things that were happening in the homes below:
- In Rosemount Care Home in Blairgowrie, Dounemount Care Home in Macduff and Benholm Care Home in Forfar, the QoL Road Show embraced all things Scottish. There was lots of highland dancing and a photo booth to get people in the mood to discuss QoL.
- Carrickstone House Care Home in Glasgow and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Aberdeen saw everyone get in the party mood as residents explained to visitors how QoL had had a positive impact on their life.
- In Livingston Care Home in Murieston, the care team showcased the power of QoL and the positive impact it has had on resident’s lives.
- In Huntly at The Meadows Care Home, everyone had a right old Scottish dance celebrating QoL’s first birthday.
- Gilmerton Care Home in Gilmerton raised a class and toasted QoL’s success.
- In Cupar, Lunardi Court Care Home cracked open the Irn Bru to wash down the Scottish shortbread, rocky road and crispy cakes. Relatives of our residents then spoke to the team about QoL.
- In Glasgow at Burlington Care Home and Banks O’Dee Care Home in Aberdeen residents gave their feedback to the team whilst enjoying a selection of Scottish themed cakes, drinks and dancing.
- Meadowvale Care Home in Bathgate, Campsie View Care Home in Kirkintilloch and Cardonald Care Home in Glasgow got all dressed up in various tartans to raise awareness of QoL. The different coloured tartans and selection of outfits certainly got everyone talking.
- In Kirkcaldy, everyone in Gowrie House Care Home was in the party mood, celebrating the ‘find and fix’ approach that the QoL Programme has helped the home to implement improving the resident’s quality of life.
- Benarty View Care Home in Kelty pulled out all the stops for their decorations. They made a real life Loch Ness Monster! The team worked for hours designing and building their Nessy theme which went down a treat with all the visitors.
John Kirk added: “This is just a snap shot of all the fun celebrations that happened for Quality of Life’s 1st birthday. The feedback we’ve received has been fantastic and I look forward to seeing Quality of Life grow and grow.”
