Springfield Court Nursing Home is a privately owned care home situated in the heart of rural Lancashire.
We are dedicated to providing the highest quality care and assistance to all residents of our lovely home and pride ourselves on being friendly, respectful and professional.
Excellent facilities, 60 hotel-style rooms, on-site café, Springfield's own theatre, top chefs and a host of well-planned activities make Springfield Court Nursing Home a care home with a difference.
WE ARE VERY PROUD TO ANNOUNCE OUR RECENT CQC RESULT
We have all worked so hard to attain this wonderful achievement.
We are now among a very small percent of nursing homes in the country who boast the highest rating.
Springfield Court is a 60-bed, private care home, established in 1989, providing a warm, homely environment with friendly, caring staff. All our residents are treated individually, choosing their own lifestyles in Springfield, (their new home), whilst we ensure that their nursing needs are continually monitored and met with sensitivity and professionalism.
At Springfield Court we pride ourselves on appointing qualified, experienced and gifted chefs to excite even the most jaded of palettes. The chefs ensure there is always a choice of food at every meal.
We have appointed dedicated activities organisers whom make it their concern to see that all our residents are provided with stimulus. A diverse range of activities, outings and games take place daily.
What makes Springfield Court unique is its Theatre of Dreams where national and international entertainers regularly appear on stage. Running alongside these spectacular evening events is an Enrichment Programme in which guest speakers are invited to talk on a wide range of subjects. These evenings are enjoyed by residents, their relatives, staff and friends of Springfield Court.

Philosophy of Care
Springfield Court aims to provide residents with a secure relaxed environment in which their care is of prime importance.
All staff at Springfield Court will strive to preserve and maintain the dignity, individuality and privacy of residents within a warm and caring environment, and in doing so will be sensitive to the their ever changing needs. Such needs may be medical/therapeutic, cultural, psychological, spiritual, emotional and social.
Staff within the Home will be appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standards of care. A planned programme of staff training is implemented to ensure that these standards are maintained at all times.
Please see the attached documents below for our full Resident Guide and Statement of Purpose.
Activities at Springfield Court are vibrant and vital for our residents well-being. On admission to the home we use their life history to ensure that we have activities that will inspire and encourage them to join in and give them a purpose and much to look forward to. A monthly activities sheet is displayed in each room.
We have seasonal celebrations throughout the year and celebrate many national events in the home. Some of these have included the Royal Wedding, Diamond Jubilee, Olympic Games, Wimbledon, and Chinese New Year. Special services are also held at Harvest and Christmas time. We commemorate Armistice Day which is very important to our residents who are rightly proud to display their medals, and are given the opportunity to remember those lost who were near and dear to them. We also have weekly term-time visits from St, Michaels Primary School Year 6 children who are welcomed enthusiastically each week by our residents. They play games and sing and generally bring with them lots of fun and laughter. We also welcome on a fortnightly basis Ormskirk Secondary School who bring with them a wealth of talent singing and dancing and playing musical instruments.
Every month we enjoy Tai Chi and an afternoon of relaxing music with a keyboard player from our local U3A group. Every two weeks we have an art class which is very popular with our residents who produce beautiful pictures which they display in their rooms. Films are shown regularly in our Theatre and visiting musicians regularly entertain the residents with uplifting sing-a-longs and a very wide range of music ranging from popular musicals to memory provoking songs from their era.
The residents are always encouraged to enjoy the beautiful grounds that surround our home and are taken out whenever we have good weather.
Baking, circle dancing and trips out are all activities which can be enjoyed on a regular basis. A cheese and wine evening every Thursday evening is also much looked forward to and enjoyed!
