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.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!
