Our Residential Care Home in Sheffield

We have a team of dedicated Activities Coordinators whose role is to provide a varied activities programme every day for our residents. From trips to the seaside, film afternoons, games and arts & crafts, there is always an engaging activity session for residents to participate in which are included in our weekly fees. If residents would rather do something else with their time, they are more than welcome to do so. 

Some activities that residents have enjoyed in the past include creating sculptures, making decorations for the home for special occasions, pamper days and watching live performers. Our activities team works hard to ensure that the activities and workshops that take place in our care home are suited to the interests of our residents, and they welcome any suggestions from residents and their family.

Residential Care

Residential care is a care service best suited to older people who need additional assistance with their personal care regime and who would like to be free of housekeeping and cooking duties. Residents who stay with us can experience a variety of meal options for breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoy social activities with like-minded people in a welcoming environment which enhances quality of life.

All the staff work closely with residents and their loved ones to discover an individual’s likes, dislikes, abilities and preferences in order to develop a complete residential care plan. As needs change over time, we will reassess a resident’s method of care so that we are continually meeting their needs through quality care.
