Welcome to Botham Hall Care Home
At Botham Hall in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we provide a high standard of residential and respite care 24 hours a day.
The people living here have varying needs, from specialist support and help with everyday living, to just needing a helping hand to retain some independence. Some stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Ours is a modern, purpose-built property. Residents pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges - watching TV, or perhaps listening to music or having a quiet read.
They also enjoy our landscaped garden with patio, and mature trees providing plenty of shade in the summer. All these spaces are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great for spending time in with family and friends when they visit.
Many of our private bedrooms have en-suites, and all are decorated to a high standard.
Life at Botham Hall Care Home
Our activities coordinator meets each new resident to discuss their social interests. There's always something going on, from quizzes to hand massages, and days out at local attractions to flower arranging.
Professional entertainers visit regularly, and we're also treated to performances by local school children and the wider community.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time, and love catering for residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
The manager and staff at Botham Hall are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, they all go that extra mile to make the residents happy, safe, secure and cared for in an environment the residents can call home. I would have no hesitation in recommending this care home for an elderly person who needs care and is unable to live independently. A lovely atmosphere and environment with that extra special touch from all the staff.
I would recommend the staff are friendly and go out of their way. The rooms are kept clean while my mum was there, I rate it very highly. All residents are treated with respect. Plenty of choice in food. I know I made the right decision for my mum. She was safe and the rooms are a good size and they can bring their bits and pieces and own televisions.
My husband has had the best possible care over the past three years. The management and carers have looked after him during some difficult times, with understanding and patience. I could not find fault anywhere. he is always clean and well fed and dressed well.
What an incredible care home, the staff are so pleasant, friendly and all the rooms are spotless. Choice of menu's for each meal, home cooked. As a family moving mum to care was hard, but the way the staff have treated mum, she couldn't be in better hands. Well Done to Botham Hall Care Home.

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.

When Benji bounds through the doors at Botham Hall Care Home in Huddersfield, it’s not hard to see why the residents are excited to see him.
Christina Halonka, Home Manager, said: “Benji is our pet therapy dog, who entertains our residents. Whether it’s a little cuddle or playtime, Benji is ready for anything. Jessie was first in line to cuddle Benji this week, and he duly oblidged.”
When Benji left to go home, the residents welcomed Rick, a local entertainer who got everyone up singing and dancing.

We all know how hard it can be getting that special card for someone at Christmas.
In Huddersfield, residents at Botham Hall Care Home have been creating extra special Christmas cards for their families.
Christina Halonka, Home Manager, explains: “Residents have been getting crafty and have created some very special and personalised Christmas Cards for their loved ones. When they’d finished getting crafty the residents turned their hands to baking Christmas cookies which went down a real treat. Unfortunately not many were left as presents after the taste test, but everyone had a great time sampling their hard work.”
