Welcome to Saintfield Lodge Care Home

We put our residents' health and happiness 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 provide a homely atmosphere in a lovely building, where all rooms are brightly painted, furnished to a high standard and tailored to residents' needs.

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.

Four Care Homes who care for people with mental health issues have partnered with the Belfast Trust to celebrate World Mental Health Day with a display of arts and crafts produced by residents of the homes.
The exhibition highlights the importance of mental health and the maintenance of positive mental wellbeing. The exhibition will be officially opened by Lisburn Mayor, Tim Morrow and will take place in the Knockbracken Hall, on the Saintfield Road next Tuesday 10th of October from 3pm-5pm.
The event even attracted an endorsement from The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry, who have been in touch to congratulate the residents on their work.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director of Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland explained why the organisation places such an emphasis on the mental wellbeing of their residents. “We treat each of our residents across all of our homes as an individual with their own personal choices about care needs and lifestyles. When care needs include mental health as well as physical heath support we recognise the importance of working to maintain healthy mental wellbeing. Working on art and craft keeps our residents active and they take great delight when their talent is recognised. The exhibition is called ‘Metamorphosis’ which is fitting as it heralds the journey to positive mental wellbeing which is vital to all of us, young and old.
“The exhibition is a tribute to the users of our mental health units and to our dedicated teams.”
Melanie Reyes, Home Manager of Saintfield Lodge said: “This whole project has been such a rewarding one for residents and staff alike, it is such a joy to discover how talented our residents are and the pleasure they have taken in their art work, this has brought us all closer as a team.”
Anyone is able to come to the exhibit. So why not pop down and take a look.
