Welcome to Woodgrove Care Home
Woodgrove is a purpose-built care home, in a quiet suburb of Lisburn, County Armagh. We cater for elderly people based on their individual needs, and on promoting health and independence.
Some residents have only modest care requirements and may simply enjoy living within a secure environment; many others require 24-hour nursing assistance. We always involve residents, and their families, in decisions regarding their care.
We're situated within easy reach of shops (including Sprucefield Shopping Centre), Lisburn town centre, public transport, the M1 motorway, and other amenities.
We have both single bedrooms, and ones large enough for sharing with a companion.
Life at Woodgrove Care Home
Our in-house activities coordinator ensures all residents have something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to every day. Activities include bingo, reminiscence sessions, carpet bowls, quizzes, music therapy, armchair aerobics and memory games.
Weather permitting, we organise regular trips to local attractions like Hillsborough Castle and Gardens, and during Christmas we take residents to see the lights around Belfast City Hall. We also arrange events during special occasions like St Patrick's Day, 12th of July, Halloween and Christmas.
Local entertainers visit to perform for residents and their relatives. The nearby church visits every other week to give a service, and ministers from different faiths attend residents.
The care, kindness and support is exceptional.
The care and attention given is brilliant.
Thanks for planning the special celebration for my grans 104th birthday!
My mum was looked after very well by efficient and dedicated staff.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

Woodgrove Care Home in Lisburn held its biggest Halloween bash to date. It was even attended by the Princess of Arrendale, Disney’s Frozen Princess Anna. She was indeed frozen!
Leah Waddell, Home Manager, said: “Everyone enjoyed getting in the Halloween spirit. We had lots of fun and games although no-one figured out how to thaw Princess Anna. We’re all looking forward to next Halloween, although it’ll be interesting to see if Queen Elsa attends our Christmas activities.”
