Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Pauline Clews here at Old Vicarage Care Home in Worksop, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at Old Vicarage Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"I would recommend the home. The residents are treated as family and visitors are also warmly welcomed."

Gill Clark, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Old Vicarage Care Home
