Welcome to Brimington Care Home
Brimington is a purpose-built residential dementia home set in a pleasant village on the outskirts of Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Our compassionate team works hard to make everyone feel at home.
Ours is a modern building designed specifically for the needs of our elderly residents. We have a pleasant garden with lawns, and comfortable seating areas where people can sit back and relax. Some residents like to help us keep these spaces looking beautiful.
There's a welcoming TV lounge overlooking the garden, plus other areas for quiet relaxation. All our bedrooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable, and have en-suites.
Life at Brimington Care Home
Residents get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan their pastimes and diversions.
These include arts and crafts, quizzes, gardening, performances from professional entertainers and local school children, music therapy, flower arranging, animal therapy, church services, coffee mornings, and birthday celebrations.
We also have special and themed days and meal nights; minibus outings to local places of interest, the library and the park; calming and rewarding one-to-one sessions; and seasonal events.
There's no pressure to take part. If people prefer to relax or pursue their own hobbies and interests, that's OK.
Residents can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in our cosy bar area. Meals are home-cooked by our own chef, and there's always plenty of choice.
We're more than happy to cater for dietary and cultural needs. There's always a speciality dish on the menu.
I cannot speak highly enough of these people. The care our mum has received here has been second to none. Your immediate impression on entering the home is one of a modern, clean, bright environment that 'smells lovely'. The staff are friendly and welcoming and it's obvious they are a good team. The decor is thoughtfully created with a seasonal theme and the team constantly strive to plan new activities and interests for residents. There is even a pub on site!
This home is just outstanding my grandma came here after falling several times at home. It took her a while to settle, but this was encouraged by all the staff. The team are kind, genuine and considerate people. I am so glad my grandma is there.
The consistent care, compassion and kindness shown to my husband by the staff at this home has enabled him to settle in and relax in his new surroundings. That kindness has been extended to our family - we are encouraged to visit at any time, and all our questions and concerns have been dealt with immediately. I highly recommend Brimington care home.
This is a lovely care home, very clean, tidy and the staff are spot on. They look after the residents very well.
I would recommend the nursing home to anyone considering using the home. The staff are genuine in the care of my mum and I know she is loved and cared for. I can come to the home and treat is as such, the manager once said to me, while your mum is in our care this is her home and therefore yours. Those words meant the world and I have lived by this, I don't visit mum I spend my time at mums.
I would recommend this care home. The staff are so helpful.
This care home is as it says, care so brilliant. Caring staff. Good honest food and clean.
I like living here because it's very clean and you get lots and lots of nice food. I feel safe here and my husband comes for lunch, the staff look after us very very well.
I'm very happy here and wouldn't ever want to go anywhere else. I love the activities.
We are very happy with the home. My friend is very happy here and very well looked after. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

A special card landed on the mat at Brimington Care Home in Chesterfield on 15th March, as resident Kitty celebrated her 100th birthday.
Kitty, the care team, friends and family all toasted to her good health with a cool glass of bucks fizz.
Josephine Jackson, Home Manager, said: “We all had a lovely day celebrating Kitty’s birthday. She was very overwhelmed with all the fuss, but it was a pleasure for her at the same time. Happy birthday again Kitty.”
Everyone from Four Seasons Health Care wishes you many happy returns Kitty.

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 we decide to put our loved ones in a care home, it can often be a hard thing to do. However, we know it’s the right thing to do to keep our loved ones safe.
10-year-old Alex’s Great Grandma Betty, moved into Brimington Care Home in Chesterfield following deterioration in her health.
Over the next few months, Alex watched as his Great Grandma made new friends and had some fun. He was so impressed by what he saw, that he wrote a presentation for his school about the care his Great Grandma received.
Alex wrote: “Being kind and caring to the elderly is very important. In Chesterfield my Great Grandma, Betty, was put in Brimington Care Home as she was frail and quite ill. The carers at the home were brilliant and made my Great Grandma’s last few months the best they could have been. The carers looked after her so well and me and my family couldn’t thank them enough.
“The staff at the home often sat and chatted to my Great Grandma and they got people to come in and sing and entertain everyone in the home. They would also throw parties and everyone who wanted to could get up and have a dance.
“My Great Grandma made a few friends at the home and although she has dementia she still enjoyed their company. The carers kindly let us see her every time we visited Chesterfield and we appreciated that as at times we didn’t think she had long left to live. They always made us feel very welcome and offered us drinks and snacks.
"My Great Grandma became quite popular in the home. Her friends and the carers thought she had a really nice personality and a good sense of humour.”
Josephine Jackson, Home Manager, said: “Alex told over 100 pupils in his school about Betty’s stay with us. We all thought his words were wonderful and wanted to share Alex’s experience with you all. Thank you Alex for your kind words.
“Sadly Alex’s Great Grandma passed away in our care, however the family tried their up-most to raise as much money as they could for the home so we can provide special experiences for our other residents. I want to thank the whole family for everything they’ve done for Brimington Care Home.”
