Welcome to Charnwood Care Home
You can't help but feel the warm welcome from Charnwood Care Home, in the Carlton area of Nottingham.
The people that live here have different needs. Some need specialist nursing support, while others look to us for general help with everyday life. We offer residential, nursing and dementia care, long-term or just for short stays.
Residents pursue their hobbies in our communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or simply getting lost in a book.
Outside, garden lovers enjoy our flowering beds and hanging baskets. It's a wonderful place to sit and chat in the summer with fellow residents or visiting friends and family.
Life at Charnwood Care Home
We pride ourselves on our range of activities, from hand massages to flower arranging, which residents can enjoy on their own or in a group. There is always something going on, whether it's professional entertainers visiting or performances by local school children. We also enjoy taking residents out to visit local places of interest.
I am satisfied with the care my brother gets, there is a nice feeling to the home and carers are very nice. My brother is settled and likes living in the home which says a lot. The staff are always friendly and very helpful you don't want much more than that.
I think the care my mother gets is amazing. Mum is so happy at Charnwood and enjoys the care, kindness and laughter she has.
The home is very homely and welcoming and the staff are very caring and friendly. My mum/dad settled in very quickly and are happy and feel safe. The meals are good and varied, staff will always keep family informed and up to date. There are lots of different activities that they can join in if they wish. I would highly recommend this care home to anyone.
After visiting several local nursing homes, this one seemed the most warm, welcoming, on first sight. I am pleased to say my first impression was correct, the staff are thoughtful, helpful and caring (Can't do enough for mum!)
Rooms are poorly decorated, not been done for years. Staff are good and polite.
Amazing staff, polite and caring. Activities coordinator has improved the entertainment and everyone like the lady, very good. In fact the staff are all very good.

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.
