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.

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.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

Jacqui Longden, Home Manager at Preston Glades Care Home in Preston, was left in shock when she received a letter from ‘Her Majesty’s Service’.
The letter, wasn’t as Jacqui feared, a summons for Jury service, but in fact news that she was being awarded with a British Empire Medal (BEM).
The award recognises her ‘hands-on’ service to the community that has made a ‘significant difference’ for a military charity for limbless veterans.
Having no idea who nominated her, Jacqui said: “I was speechless, which is pretty unusual for me! It’s such a proud moment. I loved doing what I was doing.”
Jacqui trained as a nurse at Blackpool Victoria Hospital before working abroad in Germany and Cyprus.
She joined Blesma in 2000 as head nurse at the charity’s 45-bed nursing home in Lytham Road and was appointed manager soon after. In her role she cared for limbless veterans, ranging from permanently placed Second World War heroes with wounds incurred as prisoners of war in the Far East, to veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq in need of shorter term care.
Blesma closed in October after almost 70 years, and Jacqui added: “It was a very sad day when I left and closed the door behind me.
“There was never a day when I got up in the morning and thought, ‘Oh, work, I don’t want to go’. It was such a wonderful place.”
Now the manager at Preston Glades, Jacqui continues to make a difference to the lives of those in her care.
Congratulations Jacqui this accolade is very well deserved.

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:
