Welcome to Stanshawes Care Home
Our carefully refurbished, purpose-built Stanshawes Care Home in Yate is close to Yate shopping centre and Bristol. So it's easy for residents to get out and about.
Inside, residents can settle down in true comfort, while our garden has had a lot of attention too - making it a very pleasant and relaxing place to sit, with a shelter and benches available.
We're on the rounds of local GPs who come by weekly.
At Stanshawes 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 Stanshawes Care Home
Our full-time activities team works throughout the week, interacting with residents and planning events and outings.
Musicians and other entertainers come in to perform, and we're on the round of the local chiropodist. We also practice Pets as Therapy, and have church services in the home.
We enjoy regular visits from an experienced hair stylist and a qualified chiropodist, and we're happy to arrange complementary therapies.
A lovely home and great carers the new staff are not so friendly as the older ones. It would be good to talk to mum when they are going by. Some work very hard and care but great activities. The room is a good size.
The food is good and I'm given a choice. I like my room but it would be nice to have an en suite. The nurses are very kind and helpful. The care staff are friendly and kind. We have a library which I enjoy.
It's very homely and clean. The food is ok. But I would like it hotter sometimes. The care staff are very friendly and kind. I feel very safe here and at happy. The activities are good but would like more trips out.

The care staff are very good excellent. I get on well with domestic kitchen staff they are good. The food is OK would like to see more fish on the menu and I like beef curry and rice. I prefer beef curry to chicken curry. The home is always clean. I'm very happy with my room. I'm happy with the activities I enjoy the bingo and baking.
The food here is quite good, but the food gets a bit boating as we seem to have the same meal choices. The care staff are very good and very pleasant. My room is very good and big enough for me so I can have a trot around my room. It's a very clean home, the cleaning staff are very obliging and will always put themselves out to help you

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.

A Yate care home has achieved the maximum possible rating of 100% satisfaction for its standards of care in a national care home survey. Stanshawes Care Home also scored 96% around the theme of the quality of life for people living in the home, in the survey for “Your Care Rating”.
The independent confidential survey was conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos MORI.
The home, which is operated by Four Seasons Health Care, scored around 93%, with 929 points from a possible maximum of 1,000, for its overall performance rating, which is derived from four core themes: staff and care, home comforts, choice and having a say and the quality of life being experienced by the respondent.
Stanshawes also achieved 100% rating for being a safe secure place to live; for people being happy with the care and support provided and for the care team treating residents with kindness, dignity and respect. All participating residents said that the staff understand them as an individual and are capable of providing the care they need.
In responses to other survey questions 94% of respondents said they can take part in activities and hobbies if they want.
Amanda Cunningham, Regional Managing Director with Four Seasons Health Care, who operate the home, said: "All the care team are delighted that in this independent national survey the residents at Stanshawes Home rated the home so highly.
"The survey outcome corresponds with the responses we have had directly from residents, their relatives and care professionals who are able to give us instant feedback on a day to day basis about any aspect of care quality, by using iPads placed in the home with a touch-screen questionnaire linked to purpose designed software. This has been recording a 97% overall customer satisfaction rating for life in the home.”
The home is rated as “good” by the Care Quality Commission. The CQC inspectors reported that residents told them: “The staff are superb and I could not be better looked after,” "The nurses are so kind and know what I like" and "Absolutely brilliant". Relatives and other visitors said, "Always very kind here and a good atmosphere",” and "This home is really lovely.”

Stanshawes Care Home in Yate is celebrating results from a recent inspection after positive feedback across the core criteria.
Stanshawes Care Home, which received an unannounced visit from the Care Quality Commission, was given an overall rating of “good” from the inspection, with the same grade being given across the individual points of being safe, effective, caring, responsive to residents’ needs and well led.
The home, which is run by Four Season Health Care, was described by inspectors as allowing people to feel safe, treating them with kindness, dignity and respect.
The inspectors saw that people were looked after by staff who know the importance of having good relationships and interacted very well with residents in a caring and compassionate way, being knowledgeable of each person’s individual needs and preferences.
It was highlighted in the report that residents were supported to have choice and were encouraged to make their own daily decision, as well as having a hand in writing their care plans, which were adjusted as their needs changed.
An array of comments and feedback were presented to inspectors from residents, including describing staff as “superb” and “so kind” with residents feeling they “could not be better looked after”
Relatives and other visitors said they always found the home to have a “good atmosphere” and that you “cannot fault any of the staff”.
Amanda Cunningham, Regional Managing Director of Four Seasons Health Care in the North East, South West and Bristol, said: “It’s a credit to the dedication of the care team that the home was rated as good overall and against each of the core criteria that the CQC inspectors use.
“It is also heartening to see the very positive comments by residents and their relatives and to know the team is so well appreciated.”
