About Four Seasons Care Home
Four Seasons offer residential elderly care homes offering personal and nursing care to the residents.
Personal care (sometimes referred to as residential care) is care that is provided by trained carers rather than nurses. Personal care is designed for those who need assistance with what we call the activities of daily living; for example washing, dressing, eating and mobility.
This is care provided by Registered Nurses and trained carers and is designed for those that require nursing care as well as what the activities of daily living. Most care homes provide nursing care whilst others provide a mixture of nursing and personal care and some provide personal care only. In many cases a social worker will have carried out an assessment to determine what level of care a person requires.
