Welcome to Preston Glades Care Home
You'll find Preston Glades Care Home in the Ribbleton area of Preston, Lancashire.
Here we have a dedicated team of registered general nurses and mental health nurses, who are supported by dedicated care assistants and ancillary staff. We provide person-centred care to meet each individual's needs, and offer specialist dementia support as well as respite care.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
Our care home is ideally located close to bus stops. We have large secure gardens where people living here can enjoy the fresh air and entertain visitors.
Preston Glades' dementia unit has themed corridors to help people find their bearings, and is rich in memorabilia. There are several small lounges and a sensory room where residents can relax.
All bedrooms have TVs and great personal-safety systems. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Preston Glades Care Home
Our dedicated activities team provides a programme of events and pastimes based on the needs of each person living here. They engage one-to-one with residents to encourage individual activities, and make sure there are plenty of group goings-on, too.
We enjoy strong links with the local community groups, schools and adult education college. And we have access to the nearby swimming pool and leisure centre.
People visit to teach felt-making, pottery and ceramics. The people who live here are also attended by holistic practitioners, hairdressers, church ministers, and the local library.
We use our minibus to take residents, and their families and friends, on day trips, with Blackpool a favourite destination.
For residents who spend a lot of time in their rooms, we've placed bird tables and bird feeders outside windows, so they can enjoy watching the wildlife.
The care staff and management are a credit, nothing is too much trouble.My aunt went in for respite,and after 2 days as stated, she is happy and feels safe, as her husband is upstairs and she is downstairs and she ca see him whenever she wants.
The place is clean and fresh. We have put personal items in her room to make it feel like home.
Many thanks for the care and respect and dignity that all the staff show.

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.

Many people start their career path doing something they love, and they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) programme.
On Tuesday 20th December 2016, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 41 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Four Seasons Northwest Managing Director said: “Everyone is really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentored them through the programme. We’re often really busy, and forget to recognise the hard work people put in, but this graduation ceremony is our way to reward and recognise you all. The journey is a long one; it takes a lot of dedication to complete. You can all wear your uniform with pride, and know that we’re all extremely proud of you. Well done everyone and congratulations once again.”
Mike O’Reilly, Risk Management Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “It’s a real privilege for me to attend ceremonies like this. The CHAPs programme is very innovative, and it really does make a difference to our residents’ lives as it provides continuity for them. I want to echo Rachael’s statement of congratulations to everyone who graduated and those who supported them.”
A total of 41 CHAPs graduated from the programme and will be working in 16 homes across the Northwest. The homes benefitting from the CHAPs skills are:
- Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield
- Bamford Grange Care Home in Stockport
- Bebington Care Home in the Wirral

Laura Cross, Care Home Assistant Practitioner from Preston Glades Care Home in Preston has been crowned the Regional Care Home Assistant Practitioner of the Year for the North West of England 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 Laura demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Care Home Assistant Practitioner of the Year, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including how the overall winner has supported the Registered Nurses in their home to meet a range of clinical needs to enhance their residents’ experiences.
Laura was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Laura is a very highly relied upon team member. She is trusted by many residents, even those who prefer not to be helped by the care team. She respects everyone, and everything she does is for the benefit of the home and our residents. Her caring personality is natural to her and is felt by everyone here. Preston Glades wouldn’t be the same without her.”
As the winner for the North West of England, Laura 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.
Daniel Cleough, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care in Lakes and Lancashire said: “Laura is a very well thought of member of the team, and wider family at Preston Glades. She jumped at the chance of progressing her career and becoming a Care Home Assistant Practitioner. She relishes the new responsibility and her caring attitude has gone from strength to strength. She is a real asset for Preston Glades. Well done Laura!”
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North West of England, said: “Laura’s testimony is a real credit to her. I met her at her CHAP graduation and can see why she’s so very highly thought of. Congratulations Laura, you are very worthy winner of this award.”
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.”
