Paint your lips RED in aid of Dementia UK #RedLippyDayCare Home Life
I have a note in my diary… It says this Friday, May 4th, is ‘Red Lippy Day for Dementia UK’ and this got me thinking about how #redlippyday came to be… “Red Lippy Day is a fun day,” says Jules. “We hope it makes people realise that the wearing of a bright lip colour was indicative of good times, getting ready to go to weekly dances, following film stars of the day, going out with friends, when youth and vitality were at a peak and not the sad circumstances we all see our loved ones in now, usually at the end of their lives.”

Our care teams really pull together at Christmas time to make it a memorable occasion for our residents and colleagues. We do our best to bring some Christmas cheer to each and every one of our residents, especially those whose families may not be able to visit. All of the Four Seasons Health Care team are dedicated to their homes and we thank those who are possibly taking time away from their families to spend this special day with our lovely residents.

Today we are looking back at a special initiative led by carehome.co.uk – Care Home Idol. Care homes are bursting with talented older people who have led diverse and fascinating lives.

The festival aims to bring people together to celebrate the creativity of older generations, by sharing stories of ageing and exploring what growing older means to all of us.
Three Four Seasons Health Care colleagues take fundraising to new heights #Winter #WarmersCare Home Life
There is always a lot going on at a Four Seasons care home, with heaps of activities to get involved in for both our residents and our care teams. This year the Four Seasons care team and our residents have been busy raising money and awareness for charities in their local communities and across the UK. From riding a bike for 24 hours straight, to knitting hats for Oxfam, to running Race for life and even a sponsored head shave - you name it - we have probably done it!
