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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

As the witching hour struck, Four Seasons homes across the UK were welcoming their own witches, warlocks, vampires and mummies for tea.
Although nobody went our trick or treating, our residents got up to a lot of spooktacular behaviour to celebrate the day, with the odd sweet treat thrown in every now and then.
Our care teams pulled out all of the stops to transform the homes from lovely warm environments, to something Casper would be happy to haunt.
At Springfield Care Home in Blackburn everyone dressed to impress, with one team member seemingly losing their head in the celebrations. Some of their ghostly visitors seemed to settle right at home, bringing their very own cave to one of the units. The residents enjoyed seeing the team channel their inner monsters.
A jilted bride was one of the strange spirits that rocked up to Hillview Care Home in Rawtenstall’s party. Joined by a pirate, devil and several ghosts, the residents listened to how love had turned sour for the beautiful yet pale bride.
In Ilkeston Haddon House’s Halloween Party had a warmer feel thanks to local entertainer John West who had everyone doing the jittering jive or wearisome waltz. Residents and their families enjoyed all of the Halloween fun that the home provided and had enough sweet treats to prevent any tricks happening at the party.
At Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield, the Home Manager and Deputy Manager were both sent to the stocks, all to raise money for special experiences for the residents in their care. The rest of the team encouraged the residents to throw sponges at the managers, after all what’s Halloween without a few tricks?
Meanwhile in Morecambe, residents, relatives and the care team at Morecambe Bay Care Home enjoyed some apple bobbing and other Halloween fun. The same could also be said of the residents up in Pennine Lodge Care Home in Carlisle.
The team at Domnall Intermediate Care Centre in Belfast pulled out all of the stops dressing to impress the residents as they wold choose who would be crowned the Queen or King of Halloween.
Residents at Kilburn Care Home in Belper created their own sweet treats by decorating cookies and carving pumpkins before putting the care team through their paces to identify the best and worst dressed for their Halloween celebrations.
A gruesome time was had by all.
