Welcome to Balmoral Care Home
Balmoral Care Home is in the village of Woodhouse, near Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Here our experienced team delivers high-quality care underpinned by thorough internal checks.
To deliver the best service we can, we work alongside GPs, district nurses, social workers and physiotherapy services.
We're on a good bus route within easy reach of the M1 motorway, shops and other important amenities. We have beautifully landscaped sensory gardens which disabled residents can easily get around and enjoy.
At Balmoral 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 Balmoral Care Home
For all residents, our full-time activities coordinator promotes individual and group pastimes, diversions and entertainment. These include handicrafts, coffee mornings, and outings to local places of interest.
We also arrange visits from an ecumenical group which holds a service for those wishing to take part.
My cousin has been in Balmoral since Sept 2012. He is well looked after at all times, everyone is ready to help and are pleasant. I am very happy with his care and pleased I chose Balmoral. Nothing is too much trouble from all the staff.
My 95 year old father spent his last 11 months in the Balmoral Care Home before passing away at the end of December 2014. During the time of his stay the standard of care was exceptional and my family and I owe a debt of gratitude to the staff for their care and compassion during his last months. Nothing was too much trouble for them and we had the satisfaction of knowing he was in well trained hands.
Due to my cousin being profoundly deaf (myself too) the deaf awareness is excellent. The staff are very caring and make sure I know what is happening too. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help out.
I am pleased my mum has just settled into home life in Balmoral. I am still coming to terms, after caring for mum, for the last eight years. I don't worry too much about her as I did because she now has 24/7 care. She has now been in Balmoral a year on 6th February 2016.
I think the care is good. I wish carers could spend more time chatting with me. I like all the different activities and performers that come.
I am very pleased with the care I am provided with at Balmoral. All the staff are very friendly and patient.
In our experience the staff always seem to try their best in sometimes testing circumstances. The staff have changed a lot over last few months so seems to have lost some of its continuity. Questions are usually answered and overall residents seem well cared for.
People are well looked after and kept clean and happy. Carers are carers and do care for he people here.
This is our first experience of a care home in detail.
Overall our experience has been good and the staff are very friendly approachable. There is a good stable foundation to the care and communication. Only one issue I contracted a stomach bug from a virus in the home (carried by a hospital returnee)
I would highly recommend Balmoral Care Home, the management and staff,caring and understanding to residents and there family.
My mum had a fall in her room in January the staff responded quickly and family in formed.
A member of the staff accompanied mum in the ambulance to reasure her and give the doctors information they needed.
Mum suffers from dementia so the well being of mum is of up most importance and Balmoral did just that.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

“They created a Weetabix cake and some fruit smoothies which all went down a treat,” explained Home Manager Liza Murphy. “The residents were too keen on the smoothies which contained spinach. They said they would better suit Popeye the Sailor Man.”
