Welcome to Southfield Court Care Home
Southfield Court is a purpose-built, modern care home in the village of Almondbury, close to Castle Hill and about two miles from Huddersfield. So residents can enjoy both the town and the countryside.
Our home is well equipped and comfortable, featuring two large, bright lounges with two other smaller, quieter lounges. We also have landscaped gardens with patio areas where residents can enjoy the fresh air.
At Southfield Court 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 Southfield Court Care Home
Our two dedicated personal activities coordinators make sure all residents have something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to. This may be individual hobbies or interests, but we also make sure there are plenty of group activities.
Our varied and interesting programme includes handicrafts, gardening, quizzes and concerts. We also celebrate seasonal events, such as Mother's Day, birthdays and St George's Day, to name just a few.
I just wanted to say that standard of nursing care that my father is receiving at Southfield Court is excellent. You hear such horror stories these days in the newspapers about mistreatment of the elderly and those with dementia, but my faith in human nature has been restored by the nurses and staff at the home. They genuinely do care about my dad and although I can't get to see him as often as I would like (I live away), I can phone anytime to see how he is and I know if he isn't well, they will always let me know.
Peter and his staff are a credit to the company. It's a pity every care home can't have such caring people and staff as work here.
Knowing how difficult it is making a decision on where to place your relatives when they need 24 hour care I wanted to make this recommendation to anyone considering choosing Southfield Court. I cannot praise them highly enough - I placed my step mum there last December following a stroke, she was as well cared for as anyone could have ever wished, since being admitted last December she did suffer a number of mini strokes and again the care she received from all the staff at Southfield Court was excellent. Sadly my mum died last week but I was kept informed of her condition every step of the way and feel certain she was made comfortable to the end. Not only did the staff care for my step mum but also built up a lovely raport with my dad who visited every day. I cannot thank them enough and would have no hesitation is recommending Southfield Court.
Southfield Court Care Home has a very happy atmosphere, all the staff are of a caring nature and interact all the time with residents. I visit every day at any time and have always found this so. We have formed a relatives group and meet each month to discuss any concerns and inquire how each of the relatives are coping. Management will attend if we request, also any concerns or ideas we forward to the management, who then take on board and action a.s.a.p. I think we need more stimulating activities.
My mum needed 24hr care. We went to look round Southfield Court and were made very welcome. We placed her into the caring hands of the staff there. I cannot thank them enough, they are angels, she loved them dearly. Sadly mum was only there 18 days before she pass away, she was made comfortable right to the end. The staff are first class, nothing is too much trouble day or night.
Our family cannot thank them enough. they are 100%.

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.
