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.

Residents at Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop have a passion for wildlife. So much so that they created a variety of snacks from various delicacies for the birds and the squirrels to enjoy.
Pauline Clews, Home Manager, said: “A group of residents got together to make bird feeders out of crusts of bread, peanut butter and bird seed. The finished products looked good enough to eat, but before anyone could have a nibble they were taken outside and hung up for the birds and squirrels to enjoy.
“The resident sat back and enjoyed the fruits of their labour as they watched the wildlife feed."
