Welcome to Sunbridge Care Home
Here at Sunbridge, a modern, purpose-built care home in Edmonton, we pride ourselves on our cosy, welcoming atmosphere.
Residents can pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges, watch television or perhaps listen to music or enjoy some reading time. They can also take a stroll in our landscaped garden in the warmer months. All these areas are perfect for relaxing in and meeting with friends and family.
At Sunbridge 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 Sunbridge Care Home
Thanks to our dedicated activities coordinator, we have a full and varied activities calendar. It includes arts and crafts, baking and gentle gardening, as well as quizzes and musical events.
With visits from professional entertainers and plenty of trips to the library, park and local shopping centre, residents always find something to keep them stimulated. We also arrange special meals and invite friends and relatives, as well as celebrations for birthdays and anniversaries.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.

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.”

Sunbridge Care Home in Edmonton is introducing a suite of activities products specifically for people living with dementia, which are designed to be enjoyable while helping to keep people interested, engaged and active.
Deepak Luckhun, Home Manager, is offering anyone in the community who has a family member with dementia, or professionals working with people with dementia, to make an appointment to visit the home to see the activities products for themselves.
Sunbridge is run by Four Seasons Health Care, the UK’s largest independent elderly care provider and a leader in dementia care, which is partnering with Active Minds, award-winning specialists in designing activity products for people with dementia. Four Seasons will introduce a full suite of Active Minds activity products into more than 300 of its care homes and will monitor how this improves the day to day experience for people living with dementia. The two organisations also plan to collaborate, bringing together their respective understanding of dementia care, to develop innovative new activity products.
People living with dementia often face additional challenges when it comes to activities. Deterioration of cognitive, dexterity and visual abilities may mean regular activities products such as puzzles and games become too challenging and can cause frustration. The suite of Active Minds products for people with dementia that Four Seasons is introducing into its dementia care homes includes art activities, puzzles and games, reminiscence activities, sensory products and exercise activities.
Sunbridge has achieved accreditation as a specialist Four Seasons Dementia Care Framework home.
Deepak Luckhun said: “With the right support the person with dementia can enjoy a good life experience and the effects of dementia progression may be slowed. That is what our Dementia Care Framework is designed to achieve. Activities can play an important part in giving people a good experience and making them happy, so the Active Minds specialist products are a good fit.”
Four Seasons Health Care’s Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care. It has purpose-designed technology to support care teams to audit each resident’s physical condition, clinical needs, dietary requirements as well as their psychological and emotional condition and their day to day experience, so that care can be adjusted to their changing needs. It is being rolled out to all Four Seasons homes as each one completes the training and accreditation process. Training in the new approach includes a simulated experience of dementia, with the sensory and cognitive impairments, difficulties with communicating, perplexity when performing simple tasks and the emotional effects that may follow. This gives the team at Sunbridge an understanding of the condition and an insight into the perspective of the person living with dementia.

Moving into a care home can be a concern for some people. However, what many people don't realise is that it can give you a second lease of life. There are often activities for you to do on a regular basis that can be tailored to your care needs.
Here at Four Seasons our care teams work hard to understand your needs whilst getting to know you on a personal level. This enables us to personalise activities which has a positive impact on our residents' lives.
A recent example of this has happened at Sunbridge Care Home in Edmonton.
Richard - a resident at the home who lives with Dementia - was a former cabinet maker before retiring and moving into the home and had a love of puzzles. After talking to the team he was surprised with a puzzle that featured old tools of his trade.
Deepak Luckhun, Home Manager, said: “We know it’s important to give our residents a sense of well-being. Giving Richard this puzzle is one simple way we can enhance his experience with us and make a difference to his daily life. By tailoring activities like this based on our resident's life story it emphasises that we're here for you, and will listen to what your wants and wishes are.
"The team here at Sunbridge have recently undertaken the Dementia Care Framework accreditation Programme, which is our brand new approach of caring for people with dementia based on their experiences. The Programme actively encourages and provides the team with the tools to delve into the life stories of the residents. As you can see with Richard, this has worked well as we've provided him with an activity that he really enjoys. Well done team!”
