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.

Everyone at the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop want to say a special thank you to Father Christmas and his elf for taking time out of his busy schedule to come and spend time with residents and their families.
Pauline Clews, Home Manager, said: “The residents loved seeing Father Christmas and his little helper. He hand delivered all of the residents presents which made the day extra special for them. I can’t thank him enough for taking the time to do that. We look forward to seeing him next year.
“Once Father Christmas left, the party really started at the home. With festive music being heard throughout, residents up on their feet dancing, it really was a lovely way to spend the day.”

Residents from 8 Four Seasons care homes in Northumberland revived the traditional tea dance when they got together for a social afternoon on Wednesday 21st December 2016 at the New Delaval & Newsham Working Men’s Club. They were joined by friends, relatives and staff, and members of the local community.
As well as taking to the dance floor, guests were invited to take part in a sing-along session and bingo. There was a range of refreshments served and a chance to take part in a raffle.
Rob Heane, Regional Manager for Four Seasons in Northumberland, said, “The social afternoon is a great way for residents to get out enjoying themselves, to meet people from other Four Seasons care homes and engage with members of the wider local community. This event is a regular occurrence, and it’s great to see it go from strength to strength each time we run it. Here’s to the next one.”
The afternoon and early evening dances, with a civilised break for tea and refreshments, are coming back into vogue. Before the 1950s, tea dances were a popular way to socialise; however, they declined in the 60s as the club and disco scene emerged. They are now beginning to make a return to popularity, possibly linked to the success of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

Music has a profound impact on everyone. This is why the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop invited Lost Chord into the home.
Lost Chord specialise in providing stimulation through music for people living with dementia.
Pauline Clews, Home Manger, said: “The session went down very well with our residents. They enjoyed using music as a different form of communication. We look forward to welcoming Lost Chord back for future events.”
