Lovely staff, and the home is very clean. If you ask for something, it is done. They take my nanna out. It is a very lovely home.
The staff are incredibly caring and patient, they genuinely do care for them they made my mothers final days as comfortable as possible. They cared for her and all the grieving relatives that visited.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Residents from Pellon Care Centre in Halifax enjoyed their five minutes of fame as they featured on their local ITV Station in a feature focusing on dementia.
Wendy Lees, Home Manager, said: “The feature was highlighting the importance of people with dementia socialising. We held a grand unveiling when the show was on which went down really well with residents and relatives alike. It is really important for people to socialise, just because you have dementia doesn’t mean your life should stop.”

Pellon Care Centre in Halifax has 28 beds which Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) can use to help provide intermediate care to people in the local community. The service includes a multi-disciplinary team including dedicated nurses and carer from Four Seasons Health Care working alongside Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists from the CCG Rapid Response Team.
The reason for providing intermediate care in the Halifax area is to rehabilitate people who do not need to be in hospital, but need support before they can return to their own home. Each person that uses this service is fully supported so they can regain their independence.
Not sure if intermediate care is suitable for you or someone you know? Take a look at the below case study which explains the service we provide.
A gentleman was admitted to Pellon Care Centre following a stay in hospital after having a stroke whilst on holiday. On admission to Pellon, the gentleman could only bear his own weight for a short time, so used a wheelchair as a way of being moved around. Following intensive physiotherapy, support from the occupational therapist and high quality care provided on a daily basis by the nurse and care team, the gentleman was discharged to his own home. By the time he was discharged, this gentleman was able to walk independently without aids.
Intermediate care is only a short term option to help get people out of hospital, but back on their feet before they return home.
The intermediate care service provided by Pellon Care Centre has proved highly successful. When the service was first suggested in 2012, the CCG only asked for 15 beds to be made available. They have now increased this limit with 28 beds now available for people to use. People who do utilise this service stay at the home for an average of 44 days, with the majority of those discharged back to their own home.
