Welcome to Woodview Care Home
Woodview is one of Lincolnshire's most popular nursing and residential homes, providing nursing, residential care, respite care, end-of-life care, and care for those who are physically disabled.
Set in Branston, a beautiful part of Lincolnshire, our large specially converted home has a pleasant garden with comfortable seating areas and tranquil fish pond, giving residents the chance to sit back and relax.
Every member of our team works hard to make sure each resident is comfortable and well cared-for. Our highly-trained nurses also provide specialist care for those who need it.
Woodview consists of two units. Greenwood Court deals mainly with residents who have physical disabilities; Woodview is more of a general nursing unit.
Whether residents prefer to relax or join in with our daily programme of activities, staff members are always here to help them feel at home. We have a range of different styles of room, in keeping with the character of the house. All are warm and comfortable and residents are welcome to bring their own furniture.
Life at Woodview Care Home
Our activities coordinator organises both group and one-to-one activities. Many residents find the one-to-one time with staff particularly calming and rewarding. All activities are completely optional - there's no pressure to participate.
Meals are freshly prepared by our in-house chef. Whether it's shepherd's pie or salmon fillets, bakewell pudding or baked apples, food is always high quality. Our menus offer choice with every meal, and we cater for all dietary and cultural needs.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.
I don't know how to thank you all enough for the wonderful way in which you cared for my Dad. You made him feel special and loved. You made him happy.

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.

Woodview Care Home in Lincoln is celebrating the success of Care Assistants Victoria Ball, Stephanie Gildea, Natalie Hearne and Judy Hortop after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
Louise Lawson, Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Victoria, Stephanie, Natalie and Judy on their success. We’ve supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They are a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Sam Jacob, England East Managing Director, said: “Here at Four Seasons we take great pride in our CHAPs programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. You have come through this long journey, and I want to thank you for your commitment and continued dedication. I also was to thank the mentors for their continuous help and support.
“By working together we can all help provide good quality care everywhere, ensuring residents get the service they deserve. Congratulations once again.”
