Posted on July 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Major provider Four Seasons Health Care has opened two specialist care units ­ one in Teesside, the 18-bed Jackson Suite which will care for 40-65 year-olds who have various disabilities such as head injuries, brain trauma, dementia and Huntingdon¹s disease. The facility has been built next to the Westview Lodge care home in Hartlepool. The other is a 10-bed learning disabilities unit in Downpatrick, Northern Ireland. This unit is operated by Four Seasons, which has experience in operating similar centres across the province, in partnership with Down and Lisburn Trust and is the only specialist unit of its kind in the area, catering for people with profound learning disabilities, who require long and short-term treatment.
