Welcome to Brimington Care Home
Brimington is a purpose-built residential dementia home set in a pleasant village on the outskirts of Chesterfield, Derbyshire. Our compassionate team works hard to make everyone feel at home.
Ours is a modern building designed specifically for the needs of our elderly residents. We have a pleasant garden with lawns, and comfortable seating areas where people can sit back and relax. Some residents like to help us keep these spaces looking beautiful.
There's a welcoming TV lounge overlooking the garden, plus other areas for quiet relaxation. All our bedrooms are well equipped, clean and comfortable, and have en-suites.
Life at Brimington Care Home
Residents get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan their pastimes and diversions.
These include arts and crafts, quizzes, gardening, performances from professional entertainers and local school children, music therapy, flower arranging, animal therapy, church services, coffee mornings, and birthday celebrations.
We also have special and themed days and meal nights; minibus outings to local places of interest, the library and the park; calming and rewarding one-to-one sessions; and seasonal events.
There's no pressure to take part. If people prefer to relax or pursue their own hobbies and interests, that's OK.
Residents can enjoy a pre-dinner drink in our cosy bar area. Meals are home-cooked by our own chef, and there's always plenty of choice.
We're more than happy to cater for dietary and cultural needs. There's always a speciality dish on the menu.
I cannot speak highly enough of these people. The care our mum has received here has been second to none. Your immediate impression on entering the home is one of a modern, clean, bright environment that 'smells lovely'. The staff are friendly and welcoming and it's obvious they are a good team. The decor is thoughtfully created with a seasonal theme and the team constantly strive to plan new activities and interests for residents. There is even a pub on site!
This home is just outstanding my grandma came here after falling several times at home. It took her a while to settle, but this was encouraged by all the staff. The team are kind, genuine and considerate people. I am so glad my grandma is there.
The consistent care, compassion and kindness shown to my husband by the staff at this home has enabled him to settle in and relax in his new surroundings. That kindness has been extended to our family - we are encouraged to visit at any time, and all our questions and concerns have been dealt with immediately. I highly recommend Brimington care home.
This is a lovely care home, very clean, tidy and the staff are spot on. They look after the residents very well.
I would recommend the nursing home to anyone considering using the home. The staff are genuine in the care of my mum and I know she is loved and cared for. I can come to the home and treat is as such, the manager once said to me, while your mum is in our care this is her home and therefore yours. Those words meant the world and I have lived by this, I don't visit mum I spend my time at mums.
I would recommend this care home. The staff are so helpful.
This care home is as it says, care so brilliant. Caring staff. Good honest food and clean.
I like living here because it's very clean and you get lots and lots of nice food. I feel safe here and my husband comes for lunch, the staff look after us very very well.
I'm very happy here and wouldn't ever want to go anywhere else. I love the activities.
We are very happy with the home. My friend is very happy here and very well looked after. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble.

Residents, relatives and the care team at Brimington Care Home in Chesterfield enjoyed an action packed Easter Party complete with a special visit from the Easter bunny.
Josephine Jackson, Home Manager, explained: “It was an action packed day full of fun and laughter. We started with the Easter bonnet parade, fun and games, an Easter egg hunt led by the Easter bunny and a singer who had everyone singing and dancing. We also held an raffle which saw us raise £226 for the residents’ social fund to help provide further special experiences for them. Everyone had a fantastic day.”

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.
