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.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Springfield Care Home in Blackburn is working with Darwen Clinical Commissioning Group in the provision of a 10 bedded sub-acute rehabilitation unit. The unit provides rehabilitation, usually following an acute episode of care for either emergency or elective treatment.
The reason for providing intermediate care in the Blackburn area is to support individuals who have experienced an acute illness or trauma and following hospital treatment have been identified for further therapy that will enable a safe return to their own home. Patients who use this service will have been identified as needing additional therapy to help them achieve the best results, away from a hospital ward.
The unit at Springfield is very busy, with an average stay of 14 days for a patient with over 60% of them returning to their own homes and living independently.
More information about the intermediate care service that we provide can be found on our website.
