Welcome to Springfield Care Home
Our recently refurbished Springfield Care Home is beautiful, clean, spacious and light. We also have landscaped gardens surrounding the building and we're hoping to develop a sensory garden this year.
Most of our bedrooms have stunning views of the gardens and residents are very welcome to personalise their rooms and even change the colour scheme to suit their tastes. For getting out and about, we're close to local shops and transport links and Blackburn shopping centre is just a mile away.
At Springfield Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Springfield Care Home
Our highly committed activities coordinator makes sure there's plenty going on throughout the day to suit all tastes, ranging from individual to group activities.
The people who live here can also go on a monthly outing, often to take in the sea air at the Bond Hotel in Blackpool or lovely Lytham St Annes.
They all care and that's the difference.
The staff are wonderful and really helpful and my husband seems happy and that is all that matters to me.

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.

It’s not every day you can celebrate 119 years of experience in the care sector. A special event at Springfield Care Home in Blackburn did just that on Wednesday 6th September 2017.
Michelle Timperley, Home Manager presented the eight team members with their Long Service Certificates and gifts as a thank you for their continued dedication and hard work.
Michelle Timperley said: “It was a pleasure presenting the team with their awards. I want to say massive congratulations to them all for their continued dedication and hard work. They’re all thought of very highly here in Springfield by the rest of the team, the residents and the relatives. Not every home can boast of so much experience under one roof and I’m very proud of each and every one of them.”
