Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

When the residents at Whitefield Lodge Care Home in Glasgow received a donation of books from their Local Advocacy Service, it spurred them on to have their very own book group.
Angela Martin, Home Manager, said: “On behalf of everyone here at Whitefield Lodge I want to thank the Local Advocacy Service for donating the books to us, as part of the World Book Night initiative. Residents, relatives and the care team all got together to read the books before having a chat about them over a cup of coffee and a cake.
“Everyone is now holding a regular reading groups with trips to the local library becoming more popular as residents look for the next great read. Everyone is looking forward to discussing the next book with a coffee and a cake.”

Congratulations go to the team at Whitefield Lodge Care Home in Glasgow after being commended for their care and kindness by relatives of residents in their care.
Regional Manager Victor Dewson had the pleasure of presenting a number of Recognition of Care and Kindness (ROCK) awards to the team at Whitefield Lodge.
The first award went to Head Chef Rosina Saunders and Gardener Karen Kennedy were nominated by a relative who stated: “Over the year since our Mother moved to the Lodge, we have been pleased by the overall quality of food prepared by Rosina and her staff, and delighted by her extra dedication and thoughtfulness in providing delicious home baking for the residents and for events held here.
“Our Mother has been here for just over a year and so has seen the Lodge’s garden and grounds through the ‘four seasons’. They are beautifully maintained by Karen and offer a very pleasant environment for residents. Karen well deserved her bronze award in the recent garden competition and we would be pleased to see her hard work, enthusiasm and helpfulness further recognised.”
The second award was presented to the whole team on the first floor unit, who were nominated by a resident’s daughter. Her nomination read: “My father is a resident at Whitefield Lodge Care home. I felt I had to let you know of the incredible caring, funny, sympathetic and kind staff in Whitefield Lodge. They have restored my faith in human nature. They are all caring and compassionate and always have time if we want to ask anything. The whole place is so happy you never see the staff in a bad mood or grumpy. You never know if they are having a bad day. My dad is upstairs in the home and all the staff have taken the time to read his profile as they have spoken to us and asked about his life. The male staff are exceptionally good with him especially with personal care. .Jackie who does the entertainments is fab, they go on great trips. The management team to the office lady are always smiling and have always time to say hello. I am writing to you to ask that you recognise the staff you have at Whitefield Lodge and the commitment they show to patients and family members. They are always there be it with just a wee reassuring cuddle or a tissue. So from my dad and my sisters and brother a big thank you to Whitefield lodge and please as such a big company let your workers know you appreciate the effort they put in in keeping your company's values and good name.”
Angela Martin said: “I’m very proud of the team here, they regularly go the extra mile to make a difference to the residents they care for. These awards show that every member of the team in the home cares for the residents that live here. Well done everyone! These awards are very well deserved.”
After the presentation, everyone enjoyed a lovely tea party to celebrate.
Victor Dewson, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in Glasgow and Clyde, said: “The team were all nominated for these awards by residents of relatives in their care. I don’t think there is any higher commendation than that. It’s fantastic to see that the team here are making a difference not only to the residents’ lives but to their families as well. I want to echo Angela’s sentiments and congratulate you all once again.”
A ROCK award is a nationwide honour that specifically highlights the impact a Four Season Health Care employee has made on the lives of people living in one of their care homes. An internal prize, staff are nominated for an award by either residents, their relatives or friends, who have witnessed or experienced staff members demonstrating excellent standards of care and kindness in their role.
