Welcome to Balmoral Care Home
Balmoral Care Home is in the village of Woodhouse, near Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Here our experienced team delivers high-quality care underpinned by thorough internal checks.
To deliver the best service we can, we work alongside GPs, district nurses, social workers and physiotherapy services.
We're on a good bus route within easy reach of the M1 motorway, shops and other important amenities. We have beautifully landscaped sensory gardens which disabled residents can easily get around and enjoy.
At Balmoral Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Balmoral Care Home
For all residents, our full-time activities coordinator promotes individual and group pastimes, diversions and entertainment. These include handicrafts, coffee mornings, and outings to local places of interest.
We also arrange visits from an ecumenical group which holds a service for those wishing to take part.
My cousin has been in Balmoral since Sept 2012. He is well looked after at all times, everyone is ready to help and are pleasant. I am very happy with his care and pleased I chose Balmoral. Nothing is too much trouble from all the staff.
My 95 year old father spent his last 11 months in the Balmoral Care Home before passing away at the end of December 2014. During the time of his stay the standard of care was exceptional and my family and I owe a debt of gratitude to the staff for their care and compassion during his last months. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had the satisfaction of knowing he was in well trained hands.
Due to my cousin being profoundly deaf (myself too) the deaf awareness is excellent. The staff are very caring and make sure I know what is happening too. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help out.
I am pleased my mum has just settled into home life in Balmoral. I am still coming to terms, after caring for mum, for the last eight years. I don't worry too much about her as I did because she now has 24/7 care. She has now been in Balmoral a year on 6th February 2016.
I think the care is good. I wish carers could spend more time chatting with me. I like all the different activities and performers that come.
I am very pleased with the care I am provided with at Balmoral. All the staff are very friendly and patient.
In our experience the staff always seem to try their best in sometimes testing circumstances. The staff have changed a lot over last few months so seems to have lost some of its continuity. Questions are usually answered and overall residents seem well cared for.
People are well looked after and kept clean and happy. Carers are carers and do care for he people here.
This is our first experience of a care home in detail.
Overall our experience has been good and the staff are very friendly approachable. There is a good stable foundation to the care and communication. Only one issue I contracted a stomach bug from a virus in the home (carried by a hospital returnee)
I would highly recommend Balmoral Care Home, the management and staff,caring and understanding to residents and there family.
My mum had a fall in her room in January the staff responded quickly and family in formed.
A member of the staff accompanied mum in the ambulance to reasure her and give the doctors information they needed.
Mum suffers from dementia so the well being of mum is of up most importance and Balmoral did just that.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Residents at Balmoral Care Home in Sheffield put their bakery skills to the test as they created some beautiful cakes for the care team.
Liza Murphy, Home Manger, said: “Not all of the icing made it onto the cakes, but everyone had a lovely time baking and licking the bowl. After all of the hard work was done, everyone sat down for a taster and a cuppa. After that, everyone was nice and relaxed, the only downside was there were no volunteers for washing up duty.”

Balmoral Care Home in Sheffield is celebrating the success of Care Assistant Emily Green after she successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
Liza Murphy, Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Emily on her success. We’ve supported her every step of the way and it’s great to see her hard work pay off. She is a great asset to the home, and provides fantastic support to the residents here. She is a great member of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Sam Jacob, England East Managing Director, said: “Here at Four Seasons we take great pride in our CHAPs programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. You have come through this long journey, and I want to thank you for your commitment and continued dedication. I also was to thank the mentors for their continuous help and support.
“By working together we can all help provide good quality care everywhere, ensuring residents get the service they deserve. Congratulations once again.”
