Welcome to Sandringham Care Home
Here at Sandringham we recognise that all residents are individuals, with their own unique life experiences. So we work closely with each resident and their family and friends to ensure the care we provide is tailored to their individual needs.
We have a dedicated well-trained team of nurses and carers, who actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Our purpose-built home is in a residential development in Portadown, which is very handy for local shops and amenities.
Life at Sandringham Care Home
Our varied activities programme includes doll therapy, pet therapy, baking, gardening and visits from local school children. So there really is something for everyone.
For those who want get out and about, we offer trips to local places of interest. What's more, we invite singers and choirs to perform in the home, helping to make residents' parties something to remember.
The home and staff are fantastic.
I have really enjoyed my stay within the home.
Sandringham is an excellent home.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Sandringham Care Home in Portadown is the latest residential care home to be accredited under the unique Four Seasons Dementia Care Framework which has now been rolled out to 100 homes across the UK, including 20 in Northern Ireland. Over 16,000 Four Seasons colleagues have now been trained in the new and radically different approach to dementia care.
The Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing, so that their care can be adjusted to take account of their changing needs. Staff and other community based health professionals also go through a ‘Dementia Experience’ through a real time multi-sensory practical training session.
The dementia platform, the first of its kind worldwide, is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based resident audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
Since the launch of the Framework last year, 2,766 residents living with dementia in Four Seasons homes have benefited from being assessed and treated according to the new framework.
Members of the team today received their accreditation certificates at an event attended by residents of Sandringham Nursing Home, their families as well as local political representatives including DUP leader Arlene Foster, local MLAs John O’Dowd, Delores Kelly, Carla Lockhart and Lord Mayor Gareth Wilson.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, said: “Our Dementia Care Framework really is the next generation of dementia care and has been
developed with the needs of the resident living with dementia at the core of our agenda. It makes everyday life better for the person with dementia and we are delighted at the roll out in Northern Ireland homes including Sandringham which we are celebrating today.
“We are on track to roll out the new Framework across our 38 dementia homes before the end of this year.”
The Framework also includes Family and Resident Charters. These were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments. The Resident Charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences. The Family Charter sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
