Welcome to Haddon House Care Home
You'll find Haddon House in the heart of Ilkeston, Derbyshire. Here our team of registered nurses and well trained, dedicated care assistants provides excellent 24-hour care.
All support staff are trained in person-centred dementia care, ensuring residents always feel accepted and understood. We've achieved the Quality Premium rating with our local authority.
Ours is a comfortable, purpose-built home on the main bus routes between Nottingham and Derby. It's just a five-minute walk to shops, banks and post office. Also close by is Victoria Park, a lovely relaxing area in which to take a stroll.
We have a spacious main lounge with large flat screen TV opening onto a patio, a smaller lounge where people sit quietly or listen to the radio, refurbished shower rooms and bathrooms, and a fully assisted bath.
All bedrooms have under-floor heating, great safety systems, and aerial sockets for TVs. We love residents to personalise these spaces and to bring in favourite items of small furniture and pictures.
Life at Haddon House Care Home
Haddon House's dedicated activities coordinator provides stimulating and enjoyable activities residents can look forward to. These may be group goings-on, or individual hobbies and interests.
Our varied and stimulating programme includes handicrafts, quizzes, trips out to local places, gardening, baking, reading groups, and reminiscence sessions.
We also have a regular film show, and fish and chips from the local takeaway once a month. We also invite in entertainers, including singers, musicians, comedians and pantomime acts, to perform.
We celebrate seasonal festivals like Valentine's Day lunch, Mother's Day and St Patrick's Day. For residents no longer able to attend church services, we work closely with the local vicar and priest who attend the home regularly.
The care team at Haddon House provided wonderful care for my father during the last weeks of his life. He only lived there for a short time but every effort was made to get to know him and meet his increasing needs. This home is not grand or smart but it has a real heart. All the staff were kind, friendly and helpful and made family & friends feel welcome at whatever time we visited. Dad was cared for with love and respect and Nursing staff were approachable, professional and vigilant, keeping us fully informed of any changes or concerns. GP was called promptly.
The atmosphere is busy but calm with plenty of chuckles and a genuine acceptance of individuals for who they are no matter how complex their needs. As a family we felt very reassured that Dad received the kindest care at the end if his life and we felt well supported.
My husband has only been here a fortnight but I am very impressed at the high standard of care and attention he is receiving it's a very homely place and I feel happier and more settled.
The staff work extremely hard and well, but sometimes the use of agency workers who do not always know the residents as well as the regular staff can make a difference. I think it is good for the residents to be given a choice at meal times.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.

Jazz is music for your soul. This is certainly the case for one of the residents at Haddon House Care Home in Ilkeston who shared his recent love with the care team.
Denise Spencer, Home Manager, explained: “Here at Haddon we like to get to know our residents inside out. We like to know their likes, dislikes, hobbies and anything they’d like to do. One of our gentlemen shared with us that he used to play in a band, in his younger days and was once a handsome drummer, although Jazz is his favourite style of music. So we presented him with a Jazz CD which he thoroughly enjoyed listening to. I’m glad that we could make a difference to this gentleman’s day.”
