Welcome to Redwell Hills Care Home
You'll find Redwell Hills in the village of Leadgate, County Durham, just to the north-east of Consett.
Here our team provides a lovely secure place for elderly people in need of general assistance, and we also care for those with dementia.
Each person has different needs. Whether an individual living here is having a good day or feeling vulnerable, our highly trained registered nurses and care assistants offer the right level of support, as and when it's required.
In our residential dementia unit, we provide specialist care for residents with dementia, including one-to-one sessions.
Redwell Hills is a modern, purpose-built home, enjoying a central position in the village and great links with the local community. We have an enclosed therapy garden with raised planting beds, and seating areas and easy wheelchair access, where residents and their visitors enjoy spending time.
Inside our redecorated building, there are spacious day rooms, dining rooms and communal areas for socialising in. Most bedrooms have en-suites and charming views over the valley. We love residents to decorate their rooms to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Redwell Hills Care Home
Our activities coordinator puts together a full programme of pastimes and diversions. Each is carefully considered so it matches the needs and abilities of the people living here.
There's always something going on at Redwell Hills - from performances by visiting performers to arts and crafts sessions.
We hold fairs, which the local community comes along to. And residents are very close to our local schools, and to churches which visit to hold special services.
We serve up a great variety of nutritious meals. Our home bakes always go down a treat, and our catering team will cater for any special needs when asked.
I could not wish for any better care for mum - we are always made to feel welcome when we visit and the home has a friendly and pleasant atmosphere.
I enjoy my breaks at Redwell Hills, the staff are really lovely and the food is great.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Sandra Brown, Regional Manager for Durham has been crowned Regional Manager of the Year for the North East of England, South West and Bristol 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 Sandra demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Manager of the Year award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including the individual demonstrating exceptional leadership skills and the ability to prioritise the day to day challenges of the role. This individual has supported their homes and helped them to achieve the company’s strategic priorities whilst managing external stakeholders and keeping special resident experiences at the centre of everything they do.
Sandra was nominated by a colleague. His nomination read: “Sandra’s ability to organise her time and focus has supported all the teams in her region to produce all the necessary documentation that is required ensuring that they are compliant. When things are tough, Sandra is always there to cheer us up and always makes the supportive call to give us necessary encouragement. She is very deserving of the Regional Manager of the Year accolade.”
As the winner for the North East of England, South West and Bristol, Sandra 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.
Amanda Cunningham, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the North East of England, South West and Bristol, said: “Sandra is a very worthy winner of this award. She has all the necessary skills and runs a very tight ship ensuring that everyone in her region is compliant with regulations. Any issues are sorted quickly, and she’s always on hand to offer support to anyone who needs it. Congratulations Sandra!”
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 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 ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. 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.”
