Welcome to Old Vicarage Care Home
You'll find the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Here we provide excellent residential care 24 hours a day.
People living at the home have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. We offer residential care, and respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the property. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Old Vicarage Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to what people living here like to do, and we have a full and varied calendar.
Professional entertainers perform regularly. And there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We also organise regular trips to local places of interest - including the library, park and museum. And we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
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.
I would recommend the home. The residents are treated as family and visitors are also warmly welcomed.
All the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is very good (mum enjoys all the meals). There are activities nearly every afternoon which they all enjoy. The rooms are cleaned daily.

Residents, relatives and the care team all had a little Irish jig as they celebrated St Patrick’s Day at Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop.
The residents started the day by creating decorations to put in the lounge in preparation for the entertainer coming in. In the afternoon they enjoyed a little tipple whilst singing the afternoon away.

Making the decision to move yourself or a loved one into a care home can be a difficult and confusing experience. Understanding not only their care needs but the next steps if your loved one has been diagnosed with dementia can often be a mine field in itself.
Getting advice from people is a great way to make an informed choice regarding the next steps to take.
That’s why Pauline Clews, Home Manager at Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop and her team held a Dementia Coffee morning, to help raise awareness of the disease and offer advice to people weighing up their options.
Pauline Clews explains: “The dementia coffee morning gave people the opportunity to come into the home and get a feel of what life is life. I and the rest of the team were on hand to answer any questions which will hopefully helped when it came to deciding the next steps for people. The coffee morning was a great success and we managed to raise £168 for Dementia UK to help in the fight against this disease. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who came to support us on the day and donated prizes for our raffle which helped us to fund raise the money for dementia UK. ”

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.
