The Old Vicarage Care Home is a large period property located in a leafy, suburban street in the Western Park area of Worksop. The Home is situated near to the centre of the city, close to all local amenities including the hospital.
We are registered for 38 Residents; be they elderly or those suffering from dementia and/or physical disabilities.
Our Home is set in glorious, mature gardens and we invite the more green fingered among our Residents to help out with tending them.
Our Activities Co-Ordinator ensures that our Residents are never bored, and provides a daily activities time table with something to suit everyone, from our most active to those with less mobility. We firmly believe that keeping our Residents both physically and mentally challenged helps to make their lives more fulfilling in many ways.
Our catering staff provide a traditional and varied menu of delicious home-cooked meals. All specific dietary requirements and nutritional needs of our Residents are catered for.
Our Registered Manager is Marie Shaw, who is always on hand to chat to Residents, their friends and families and also to anyone wishing to know a little more about the high standard of care we have to offer. Why not get in touch or pop in for a visit?
Our team is made up of qualified naturally caring people who continue to build their skills with on-going training.
As well as providing excellent professional care, our entire team is dedicated to fostering a sense of home and of belonging. That means taking plenty of time to understand individual residents, their likes and dislikes, and exploring all the ways we can make them happy and comfortable. It’s all about giving our residents and their loved ones the confidence that we’re providing the very best of care, and delivering special resident experiences every day.
Our dedicated Activities Leader gently encourages residents to carry on doing the things they enjoy.
Another aspect of helping our residents to feel at home is for them to do familiar things. If they had a hobby or pastime they did before they arrived, we’ll encourage them to continue it with us. Or perhaps they may like to learn something new. The important thing is that we treat every resident as an individual. If they enjoy sharing time with others, either in our home or on an organised trip out, they’re most welcome. Or, if they prefer quiet time alone, we’ll respect that too.
