Care is provided in 15-bed units - each offering either nursing or dedicated care for those with dementia. These small blocks empower our registered nurses and mental nurses to provide person-centred care, focused on individual needs.
Also, we work with local health professionals to enhance our levels of care and keep abreast of all the latest developments.
Our purpose-built home is on the site of Maryport's historic docks, which many living here remember in its heyday. The property offers views to the marina and out to sea, and across the river and town. It has wide corridors and lots of windows, so is light and airy, and all rooms are comfortable and well-maintained.
Life at Riverside Court Care Home
At Riverside Court Care Home we have a fantastic, diverse programme of activities, managed by two activities coordinators who ensure there is something stimulating and enjoyable for everyone living here.
In addition to our own schedule of pastimes and entertainment, the local churches visit to give services, residents go out for pub lunches and we have lots of trips along the coast to Allonby and the beautiful beaches lining the Solway Firth. We have an activity newsletter - this has a cut-off suggestion section so that residents can put forward ideas for the activity programme.
I find that the staff are very friendly, I can come and go as often as I want as I've motorised scooter. I love to go out, do my own shopping i.e. sweets. If I need assistance for anything the staff are there.

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
