The staff are so kind and patient with people in their care, I was so frightened when I went in but was soon put at ease from the cleaning, care workers and physios I can't praise them enough. There are no words to say how much I love and care about them. I made some lovely friend. They are true angels.
Everything seems in order. I'm happy if my relative is happy. We visit regularly and all relatives seem happy.
A very warm and friendly atmosphere where all the staff are very helpful to the families and residents of the Lodge. A wide range of activities are available to residents and everyone is encouraged to join in.

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.

Residents, relatives and the care team at Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool have been embracing the joys of spring by taking part in a number of seasonal inspired activities.
Firstly, a group of residents took to the garden giving it a lovely spring clean, and planting some lovely blooms which injected some lovely spring colour into the garden. Everyone can now enjoy the garden whilst watching the local wildlife do their thing.
The Art Club then took the newly planted flowers as their inspiration and created some lovely artwork which now hangs pride of place in the home.
Everyone has enjoyed welcoming spring to Westview Lodge.

Having an illness such as dementia shouldn’t prohibit you from leading a full and happy life.
This was certainly the case for residents from Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool who went to a dementia friendly screening of ‘Singing in the Rain’ at Cineworld in Middlesbrough.
Victoria Simpson, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed themselves and were transported back to their youths with the film. It was lovely seeing them enjoy themselves, doing something that many of us take for granted.”
Dementia friendly screenings differ from other screening as there are scheduled breaks, the noise levels are reduced and the lighting conditions changed.
Victoria Simpson, added: “The residents are looking forward to seeing what other dementia friendly screening are available.”
