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.

Dementia is set to be the 21st century's biggest killer. But awareness and understanding remains low and many families are facing it alone. That’s why, during the Week, we want everyone to come together and take action. By uniting, we can raise awareness, offer help & understanding and improve care. You can find more information on the Alzheimer’s Society website.
To mark Dementia Awareness Week, Four Seasons Health Care is hosting four guest blogs from our team of dementia experts.
Our final blog takes the form of a poem and comes from Nina Hutchison from Gowrie House care home in Fife.
Nina has supported colleagues in facilitating training modules within the Dementia Care Framework. She has been so inspired by the Dementia care framework, and especially the Dementia Experience, that she wrote this poem about her understanding of how a resident may feel living with Dementia.
Dementia Experience Poem
Walk in my Shoes,
Just for a day,
Feel how I feel,
It’s the easiest way,
The jigsaw is there,
The pieces are too,
They don’t seem to fit
It’s a bit of a do,
Hear what I hear,
And see what I see,
I’m not sure where I am,
But I know I’m me,
Step into my shoes,
The experience may be difficult,
And at times a bit rough
But you can say when you’ve had enough
But this is my life, my everyday world
Some days nice and calm,
And other days a swirl,
The one thing to remember when the experience is done,
Help me with my memories,
And the days that I have none.
