The Porterbrook Care Home and the Sheffield Area

The Porterbrook Care Home and the Sheffield Area

The Porterbrook Care Home, which is located in Sheffield’s Crosspool district consists of 44 modern en-suite bedrooms as well as a number of excellent amenities. The Porterbrook Care Home offers nursing, dementia, residential, and respite care in a vibrant and safe environment. We are honoured to assist each of our residents in living a full life.

Crosspool falls within the Crookes ward and the city of Sheffield. Situated above the Porter and Rivelin valleys, residents can enjoy the surrounding hillsides in a quiet residential area. Due to the presence of several natural pools, the area was given the name “Crosspool” in the 1800s as travellers on the roads were said to have “crossed the pools” when they had passed through the neighbourhood. Sheffield is known for being a major industrial city in the 20th century and nicknamed as the “Steel City”, thanks to fast-flowing rivers such as the Sheaf, the Don and the Loxley, making it a perfect location for water-powered industries to evolve.

The Porterbrook Care Home is in the ideal location for our residents and their loved ones to enjoy days out together and make wonderful memories; from the beautiful peak district, to visiting a range of shops and cafes, to garden centres and theatres, there is a plethora of leisurely activities to experience in Sheffield.
