Welcome to Rosemount Care Home
Rosemount, in Whitely Bay's West Monkseaton area, is a relaxing care home with plenty of social spaces - as well as quiet corners - where residents can relax and be themselves.
We put the health and happiness of residents at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage them to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
We have four lounges, two of them 'quiet' rooms, and two dining rooms, all with large windows. Our two courtyards and patio area have robust garden furniture, and there's a heated conservatory from which to enjoy the views come rain or shine. There's even a small kitchen where residents can make their own drinks and really feel part of the family.

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.

On any given day, 2500 hospital beds are occupied by patients for whom treatment has finished but are often too frail to return home. When they do, it can often lead to a breakdown in the individual’s care and a return to hospital.
This leads to, what is termed ‘bed blocking’, where beds are occupied by people medically fit for discharge and the hospital is unable to free beds for those requiring urgent treatment.
Working alongside local authorities and care commissioning groups, Four Seasons has successfully trialled ‘rehabilitation homes’ offering step-down care for elderly people ready to leave hospital but not yet ready to return home.
In addition to caring for the needs of the elderly person, carers are able to observe the person sufficiently to provide an effective assessment of their individual care needs and re-build their confidence as they return to their community.
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “In an ideal world care homes would be a hub in their local community that would provide the care and support individuals need. This can range from short-term solutions like step down care and intermediate care, where someone is with us for as little as 6 weeks, to a longer term solution where we address their care needs on a more permanent basis.”
Step down care philosophy is helping embed an effective and pragmatic approach to care within the Health and Social Care System and feedback has been positive.
One lady who, after spending three weeks in hospital following a fall, resided at a Four Seasons Care Home in Cricklewood had the following to say: “Coming to the home was a nice simple change, but it made a big difference. Obviously everyone is different, but coming to a care home you have the opportunity to get up and socialise with the people in there, as opposed to just sitting in bed all day. I enjoyed my time at the home, especially as I was never on my own.” Whilst this lady was in the care home, the provisions were being put into place to ensure she had all the support she needed at home.
Another lady, who used a similar service in a Four Seasons Home, enthused: “It’ puts you on your feet and gives you back your confidence.
