Welcome to The Court Care Home

You'll find The Court in Ballymoney, County Antrim. At our purpose-built home we provide high quality residential care night and day.

The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living. Some stay with us permanently, others for short periods. We also offer respite care to give home carers a much-needed break, and accommodate individuals under 65.

Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. They watch TV or perhaps listen to music or read. Our large gardens boast colourful flowers and a patio area where people enjoy the fresh air. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.

All our private bedrooms are decorated to a high standard, and many have en-suites.

intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

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.

Christmas

21 Dec 2016

The Court Care Home in Ballymoney held a very moving Christmas Remembrance Service, remembering those loved ones who are sadly no longer with us.

Louise McIlwrath, Home Manager, explained: “We invite the family and friends of residents who have passed away throughout the year to the service. We present them with a Christmas decoration with information about their loved one and ask them to attach it to our tree. It’s a very moving ceremony where we sing carols and read readings as a way to celebrate the lives of our loved ones. It truly is a moving tribute. The ceremony was well attended and helped forge links with the local community.”

Story-Telling

17 Jun 2016

Today, Friday 17th June marks Care Home Day, an opportunity for Care Homes across the UK to open their doors to the local community. The theme for this year is celebration, with the biggest celebration of the year being the Queen’s 90th birthday.

“With this is mind we wanted to celebrate everyone turning 90 this year,” said CEO Tim Hammond. “We have over 680 residents celebrating their 90th birthday throughout the year, and I want to wish them all many happy returns.

“As part of our celebrations, we’ve had a chat with some of our residents and they in turn wanted to share their stories with you, showing how much things have changed over the last 90 years. Some of the stories are very interesting and I’d urge everyone to go and have a read of them.”

The 41 residents below all wanted to share a bit about themselves with you. They’ve also shared any memories they have of the Queen, with some having some interesting recollections.
