Welcome to Botham Hall Care Home
At Botham Hall in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, we provide a high standard of residential and respite care 24 hours a day.
The people living here have varying needs, from specialist support and help with everyday living, to just needing a helping hand to retain some independence. Some stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Ours is a modern, purpose-built property. Residents pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges - watching TV, or perhaps listening to music or having a quiet read.
They also enjoy our landscaped garden with patio, and mature trees providing plenty of shade in the summer. All these spaces are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great for spending time in with family and friends when they visit.
Many of our private bedrooms have en-suites, and all are decorated to a high standard.
Life at Botham Hall Care Home
Our activities coordinator meets each new resident to discuss their social interests. There's always something going on, from quizzes to hand massages, and days out at local attractions to flower arranging.
Professional entertainers visit regularly, and we're also treated to performances by local school children and the wider community.
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, and love catering for residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
The manager and staff at Botham Hall are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, they all go that extra mile to make the residents happy, safe, secure and cared for in an environment the residents can call home. I would have no hesitation in recommending this care home for an elderly person who needs care and is unable to live independently. A lovely atmosphere and environment with that extra special touch from all the staff.
I would recommend the staff are friendly and go out of their way. The rooms are kept clean while my mum was there, I rate it very highly. All residents are treated with respect. Plenty of choice in food. I know I made the right decision for my mum. She was safe and the rooms are a good size and they can bring their bits and pieces and own televisions.
My husband has had the best possible care over the past three years. The management and carers have looked after him during some difficult times, with understanding and patience. I could not find fault anywhere. he is always clean and well fed and dressed well.
What an incredible care home, the staff are so pleasant, friendly and all the rooms are spotless. Choice of menu's for each meal, home cooked. As a family moving mum to care was hard, but the way the staff have treated mum, she couldn't be in better hands. Well Done to Botham Hall Care Home.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.
