Welcome to Strathearn Court Care Home
Strathearn Court is a comfortable, purpose-built care home over two floors in East Belfast, where we've recently refurbished throughout. While we're on the Belmont Road, close to shops and local amenities, our home is very private thanks to surrounding hedges and trees, and there is a quiet patio area with a lovely flower garden.
At Strathearn Court 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 Strathearn Court Care Home
We have an activities coordinator who organises plenty of social events and encourages residents to decide what activities they would like, including previous hobbies or interests. He also involves relatives in outings and events, and receives great support from them.
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained. Why not arrange a visit and we'll talk you through the facilities and activities on offer at Strathearn Court Care Home?

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Christine Hamill, who regularly visits her mum in Strathearn Court Care Home in Belfast has made the finals of the Four Season’s Care Awards in the Resident/Relative Contribution category for her commitment to helping the home go from strength to strength in its local community.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Ms. Hamill demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Resident/Relative Contribution award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors which included recognising someone who had helped to ensure the care home they’re associated with reflects the interest and needs of the residents living there. Ultimately making the home a happy place to live.
Ms. Hamill was nominated by a member of the care team. His nomination read: “Christine has a passion for gardening and recognized that our garden was a little neglected. Whilst visiting her mum of a daily basis, she has created beautiful flower boxes at the front of the Home and has introduced more plants in the patio area. She has weeded the garden and always waters the plants. As a result the garden is much more attractive and pleasant for our residents to enjoy. I think Christine has made a difference to the quality of our residents’ lives by introducing more colour into our garden.”
As the winner for Northern Ireland, Ms. Hamill is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Lorraine Kirkpatrick, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care Belfast, said: “Ms. Hamill is a positive force to be reckoned with at Strathearn Court. She’s a wonderful lady and has definitely captured the hearts of everyone at the home.”
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland, said: “Here at Four Season’s we value the time taken by our residents’ relatives or members of the community who carry out tasks to improve the daily lives of our residents. It’s the little things that make the big difference.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Registered Nurse of the Year’ to ‘Care Home Manager of the Year’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
