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.

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.

In the absence of Bake Off, Master Chef has been hitting our screens over recent weeks.
Residents at Botham Hall Care Home in Huddersfield used this as their inspiration to bake some lovely treats to enjoy.
Christina Halonka, Home Manager, said: “The residents enjoyed making truffles ad ice buns, although it was definitely more fun eating them with a slice of cake. Cake certainly makes everything seem better come rain or shine.”
For those residents who didn’t fancy cake or truffles, they went on a trip to the local garden centre where they enjoyed a spot of lunch. They had a quick look at the garden ideas and petted the animals whilst they were there.
