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.

Here at Four Seasons we value all of our team members. We encourage and support them to complete courses to help them develop their skills, enabling them to further enhance their career.
One such way for Care Assistants to do this, is for them to complete the Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) 12 week training programme. Whilst completing this course, the Care Assistants can learn how to support nurses with certain duties potentially freeing the nurse to deal with a more complex issue.
Nine of our Care Assistant in Northern Ireland enrolled onto this programme, and on Monday 4th September they successfully graduated as Care Home Assistant Practitioners.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Northern Ireland said: “The graduation of the 9 Care Home Assistant Practitioners in Northern Ireland is a hugely significant achievement as these special pioneers are the very first in such a role across the Care Home sector here.
"Having Mary Hinds the Director of Nursing from the Public Health Agency and HSC in NI along to present the awards has reinforced the positive impact that CHAPs have in delivering the best experience of care for our residents."

Residents from the Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop have been working hard to make a difference around there.
Firstly, Mick offered to paint the fence around the home. Being a DIYer, Mick wanted to spruce up the garden, so painting the fence seemed like a fantastic idea.
John, who loves gardening, took part in the home’s sunflower competition, and thanks to his patience he helped them to grow the tallest they possible could and was crowned the Old Vicarage sunflower champion.
