Meet The Manager

Sonia Norris is Acting Care Home Manager at Blackwell Vale Care Home.

Four Seasons Health Care is one of the UK’s largest independent health care providers with over 250 Care Homes across the UK caring for more than 13,000 people. We provide long-term and respite residential and nursing care for older people and are an award winning, sector leader in specialist dementia care.

You’ll find Blackwell Vale Care Home situated a short drive from Carlisle city. We are close to local shops and the nearest bus stop, making us easily accessible for visitors to pop-in for a chat.

Our Care team provides nursing care for people living with complex medical needs, as well as 24-hour nursing dementia care provided by specialist teams trained in the complexities of looking after those living with dementia, who may also have other long-term medical conditions. We also provide residential care for those who need a little help with daily tasks, and residential dementia care, where we support residents to maintain their independence and individuality, encouraging social activity and building relationships within the home.

Our home is only a short distance from Upperby Park, which makes for a lovely day out for residents and their loved ones to spend quality time together.

At Blackwell Vale our residents love to explore and enjoy our beautiful sensory gardens, which we have found to be most beneficial to our residents.

Description

Our homes are more than just places of care and everyday living support. They’re also thriving communities in which each person feels part of the life of the home. Listening to our residents is one of the most important things we do each day, so that we can truly get to know them. We always pay special attention to people’s stories ─ because places filled with stories and warmth are places that everyone is happy to call home.

We also use exclusive technology to continuously improve residents’ day-to-day experiences through our Quality of Life Programme. As well as medication dosage, dietary needs and mobility, the system also captures residents’ wants, wishes and preferences, alongside feedback from relatives and professionals. This information is immediately available to Home Managers and their teams, complimenting the normal face-to-face conversations we have each day.

We know what we do is important so we work together to bring a little joy to everyday experiences, whilst striving to always be:

Respected

We treat residents and others as we want to be treated, with courtesy and dignity; showing respect in the way we communicate; involving and including people, respecting differences sensitively and professionally.

Trusting

We have a culture of trust. We open our doors, as we are proud of the special experiences we provide to residents. We act with integrity in everything we do.

Caring

We demonstrate our caring nature through our words, actions and choices. It is at the forefront of our hearts and minds. We give confidence and belief to others that we care.

Make a Difference

We go the extra mile, to say or do something special. We notice the little details that makes us all unique. We have pride in ourselves for our own personal development.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Mealtimes are a highlight of our day

There’s nothing quite like traditional home cooking to give everyone a lift.

We always ask residents and their families about their food preferences and dietary requirements. Our chef and catering team then work with dietitians to create meals that are nutritious and tasty, using fresh seasonal ingredients.

To add more variety, we also make a point of celebrating with special meals and events throughout the year. Residents can be served in our pleasant restaurant-style dining rooms or, if they prefer, they can take their meals in the privacy of their own rooms.


We Serve Food At
Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Dietary Options
Vegetarian, Vegan, Pureed, Diabetic.

Activities Are So Important

Another way we can help our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. So our dedicated Activities Leaders gently encourage residents to carry on doing things they enjoy. If someone had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new.

The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
