Welcome to Gosmore Care Home

Gosmore Care Home is a converted and extended historic building in a small village just five miles from bustling Stevenage with its large shopping centre. Closer to home, look out for Bunyan's Dell, a natural amphitheatre in Wain Wood named after the Pilgrim's Progress author.

Our care home is easily accessible to shops and local amenities and our conservatories overlook the pretty gardens.

At Gosmore Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.

Gosmore Care Home works hard to provide a varied programme to keep the residents minds active, including visits to the zoo, and the seaside. All the staff become your friends.

Stephen Lindsay, Son of Resident/Service User at Gosmore Care Home

I have found the Gosmore Care Home to be a very pleasant place to stay. I arrived here following a few weeks in hospital caused by a broken left hip. When I arrived I was provided with a small comfortable room to live in. I soon found that everyone of my needs were met with regular meals and break time cups of tea with biscuits. The nursing staff are providing me with the pills needed to deal with my diabetes and checked blood sugar in morning and evening. All the staff were very friendly to me and went the extra mile to add to my comfort.

intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

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.

It's never too early to mention the 'C' word at Gosmore Care Home near Hitchin. The residents have already started production on some cards for a stall at their annual Christmas Fair.

Christina Hartles, Home Manager, told us: "We certainly have some very organised residents here at Gosmore which became apparent when I saw their Christmas decorations. They're all very excited for the festive season and we're really looking forward to seeing everything they manage to produce between now and then."
