Welcome to Wansbeck Care Home

Welcome to Wansbeck Care Home in the village of Choppington, Northumberland.

Our Dementia Care Framework Plaque

Our home is specially adapted to provide a high standard of care 24 hours a day for residents with varying needs, including specialist support, dementia care, help with everyday living, and those just needing a helping hand to retain some independence.

We also offer respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us on a permanent basis, while others stay for short periods of time.

Residents can pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. We also have a hair salon where residents can enjoy some pampering, and a small cafe, where families and residents can relax and catch up.

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.”

A Choppington care home has scored over 97% overall performance rating in a national survey of people living in care homes. Wansbeck Care Home scored 974 points from a possible maximum of 1,000 in the survey for “Your Care Rating".

The home, which is operated by Four Seasons Health Care, scored the maximum possible of 100% satisfaction for quality of care among respondents and 100% for residents being happy living in the home.

The independent confidential survey was conducted by leading market research organisation Ipsos MORI.

The overall performance rating 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.

Wansbeck Care Home 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.

The home scored over 99% or 992 out of a possible 1,000 around the theme of the quality of life for people living in the home.

In responses to other survey questions 100% of respondents said they can take part in activities and hobbies if they want and all said that the home serves good quality food.

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 Wansbeck 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 99% overall satisfaction rating. We use the feedback to find and fix issues or niggles and to improve the residents’ experience.”

The home is rated as “good” by the Care Quality Commission.

Carehome.co.uk recently ran their Care Home Idol competition for 2016, in which care homes around the UK submit videos showcasing the talent and fun that happens in homes.

Wansbeck Care Home in Northumberland tugged at the heartstrings with their video of care worker Lee Holdroyd dancing with resident Pat to the Monkees’ song ‘Daydream Believer’ and were a runner up in the competition.

The care home posted the video on its Facebook page and within days it went viral and was watched by thousands of people all around the around. Lee started dancing with 86-year-old Pat one evening, after she felt a bit down and restless as he knew how much she loved to sing and dance.

The video has even sparked two family reunions - Pat's brother who lives in Canada hadn't seen her since moving to Canada after the war and he was shown the video by his family who noticed it on Facebook. Lee's older brother also got in touch with him after he saw the video online to tell him how proud he is after not speaking for many years.

Denise Hyden, care home manager revealed that on being told they were runners up, Pat shouted “Fantastic, we’re simply the best”.

Congratulations Lee and Pat!
