Welcome to The Sycamore and Poplars Care Home
You'll find our two care homes, Poplars and Sycamores, sharing the same tranquil setting in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire.
Our experienced staff members provide a wide range of care, for the elderly and those living with dementia, that's tailored to individual needs. We aim to offer all residents a high quality of life, whatever their circumstances.
Some residents stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods. Our short-stay respite care can be booked up to a year in advance, which can be helpful when planning holidays and short breaks. We also offer end-of-life care, which can be crucial in giving relatives the help and support they need during a difficult time.
Both homes enjoy a lovely central position, close to the town centre and all its amenities, and have good transport links, making day trips and visits easy. Many of our modern bedrooms have en-suite facilities and all are decorated to a high standard. Most are single occupancy, although we do offer the option to share.
Many residents enjoy pursuing their hobbies in our spacious, airy lounges. It could be playing games, watching TV, listening to music, or reading quietly. We also have a large conservatory, two sensory gardens and a patio seating areas. Residents and visitors can relax and socialise with friends, or just wander by themselves in our secure indoor and outdoor spaces.
Life at The Sycamore and Poplars Care Home
Both homes are very sociable, so our activity programme is packed with arts and crafts, quizzes and games, as chosen by residents. We also organise regular trips and take people to Mansfield for a spot of shopping.
We support the UK National Dementia Strategy too, which ensures key life skills are maintained, building purpose while meeting people's needs. We run group and individual activities, but often residents find the one-to-one sessions most calming and rewarding.
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.
FOR THE EXCELLENT CARE OF ALL THE STAFF FOR GOING THE EXTRA MILE FOR MUM AND DAD. EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM IS A CREDIT TO THEIR PROFESSION.
FOR THE KINDNESS, COMMITMENT AND FRIENDSHIP TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY OF JOHN (JACK) @ DOROTHY (MAY) GASCOIGNE.
WITH THANKS FROM ALL THE FAMILY
I have never written a review before but I feel compelled to do this one. My dear mother has lived with me for 12 years and sadly I felt that I could no longer give her the care that she deserves, I contacted the Sycamores and viewed the Home, the members of staff are amazing and Mum decided that she would go and stay for respite care. The home has and is excelling itself making her at home and caring for her, (when I say caring for her it just doesn’t cover it they are kind thoughtful and loving) She loves it there so much she is going to stay.
I can’t praise them all enough, they deal with Mum with compassion and dignity giving her all the choices she’d have at home but with the comfort of professionals looking after her, it’s such a comfort for me and the family knowing she’s so happy, Yanna and all her staff are fantastic I could not recommend this home highly enough.
If you are making the very difficult decision of letting a loved one go into care please look at The Sycamores if it's love, care, choices and dignity you want for your loved one you can’t go far wrong here.
Well done to all the staff keep up the good work and a heartfelt thank you to you all.
My wife has been resident in the home since Mar' 2012 after suffering a stroke in Nov' 2011. My family and I feel that she is being well looked after and is receiving the care and attention that she needs. She has some symptoms of dementia caused by her stroke. the home and her room and her room is kept clean and tidy and she is treated with friendliness and dignity at all times. I feel the home is a care home for myself as well as my wife everybody is willing to talk.
Barbara has been at Sycamore's since 16.10.2008, the firm that had it got very poor, and I was thinking about taking Barbara out, then Four Seasons got it, and it's getting a lot better. Barbara is on 24 hour nursing care.
Loves living at the home. Staff are very caring, very satisfied with the care I receive. The only thing I would change is my curtains!
The general atmosphere in the home is happy and "light hearted". Members of staff are very attentive to the needs of residents. As a relative of a resident I am very happy with the care and attention that my wife receives and when I leave, I am content, knowing she is being well looked after for her well being and her medical needs. It is very easy to talk to staff about any problems with my wife and these usually get "sorted".
We come in every day to see my father and speak to other residents. It is a very warm welcoming place, the nurses are very friendly and the carers. If we have anything to say about a problem or issue, it is dealt with. They are so very easy to approach. There is lots of outings for them. Dinners are very good and family and friends are allowed to book one.
I find all the staff very friendly, helpful and caring. I feel that the residents are treated with a great deal of respect no matter what the circumstances.
My wife has been at the care home for 5 and a half years. If I wasn't satisfied with the attention she gets I would have shifted to somewhere else. I visit her every day and the staff look after me with tea, cakes and loving care.
I love my life here, there is always lots to do with the girls on activities, the care and support from all the staff is excellent. I could not be happier, I've got a lovely room that is always cleaned and tidied. Very clean and cosy, I am very happy.

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 at The Sycamore and Poplars Care Home in Mansfield enjoyed two different groups of visitors to help them celebrate Easter this year.
On Easter Saturday, the home welcomed a local Church Choir in who performed a variety of songs for the residents. The choir even sung some of the residents’ favourites and actively encouraged them to get involved. Whilst the residents were singing, the care team took it upon themselves to dress using a variety of Easter masks which put a smile on everyone’s face.
On Easter Sunday, the residents were woken up by the sounds of motorbike engines, as the Gothic Bikers rolled up. They showed off their shiny bikes to the residents, and delivered them a variety of Easter eggs for them all to enjoy.
Karen Gilbert, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed the Easter celebrations here at The Sycamore and Poplars. However, some would have happily swapped their Easter egg for a ride on one of the Gothic Biker’s motor bike.”

Love was definitely in the air at The Sycamore and Poplars Care Home in Mansfield as residents and the care team embraced Valentine’s Day with chocolates, roses, and lovely pictures with them and their loved ones.
Karen Gilbert, Home Manager, said: “We definitely felt the love on Valentine’s Day. Firstly we received a lovely donation of cookies and roses from our local Co-Op which was fantastic. We then shared these with the residents and their families for them to enjoy. Then it was photo time, and everyone put on their best smiles for their Valentine’s photo. Love was definitely in the air.”
When they’re not enjoying the day of love, some of the care team took resident Vera and her family out to the local British Legion club to enjoy a Beatles tribute act, which took Vera back to her youth.
Karen Gilbert added: “This was a lovely special experience for Vera. She had a ball singing and dancing the night away with her loved ones and our care team. When she came home to the Sycamore and Poplars she couldn’t stop filling everyone in on what had happened. It’s great to see that we can make a real difference to our residents’ lives here.”
