Welcome to Old Vicarage Care Home
You'll find the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. Here we provide excellent residential care 24 hours a day.
People living at the home have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. We offer residential care, and respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the property. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at Old Vicarage Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to what people living here like to do, and we have a full and varied calendar.
Professional entertainers perform regularly. And there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We also organise regular trips to local places of interest - including the library, park and museum. And we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
I would recommend the home. The residents are treated as family and visitors are also warmly welcomed.
All the staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is very good (mum enjoys all the meals). There are activities nearly every afternoon which they all enjoy. The rooms are cleaned daily.

Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop helped two of their residents celebrate their birthdays with a very sophisticated garden party.
Pauline Clews, Home Manager, said: “Margaret and Peggy loved the garden, so while the weather was nice we thought we’d hold a lovely garden party to celebrate their birthdays. Everyone enjoyed the celebrations and birthday cake, which there was twice the amount of due to the fact that it was a double celebration.”
Everyone at Four Season’s wishes you many happy returns Margaret and Peggy.

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.

Residents from Old Vicarage Care Home in Woksop invited some guests of a different kind into their home as they indulged in some pet therapy.
Home Manager, Pauline Clews, said: “The residents enjoyed spending the afternoon in the sun with a variety of different critters.
“Animals can have a calming effect on people. Whether you settle down and pet a car or dog, cuddle a guinea pig or hold a snake or reptile your stresses ebb away. We look forward to welcoming these critters back another time.”
