Welcome to Woodside Care Home

At Woodside, we aim to provide a holistic, person-centred approach to care for a wide range of needs.

Our home has a dedicated team of trained nurses and care assistants who provide an excellent standard of 24-hour care. We encourage residents to be involved with all decision making, including recruitment of new staff.

Woodside is situated in Aberdeen's picturesque Woodside area. We're surrounded by mature trees, with the tranquil River Don flowing behind. In our extensive grounds, residents can sit and enjoy the surroundings. Squirrels and deer are frequent visitors, and some residents have bird tables outside their bedroom windows.

Our Georgian building retains many of its period features, including ornate ceilings in the front foyer and dining room. We have a variety of different sized bedrooms with many boasting en-suites. All rooms are fitted with nurse-call points.

FSHC-TJ-Award-Success-Dec-2017

11 Dec 2017

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.

Who were the winners?

The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.

The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”

The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.

The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”

The CNJ is available to view on the Four Seasons website here.

Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.

The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”

More information about the role of a CHAP is available on the Four Seasons website here.

Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
