Welcome to The Vale Care Home

You'll find The Vale in Bolsover, Derbyshire. Here, we provide high quality care 24 hours a day.

The people who live here have varying needs, from specialist nursing support to general assistance with everyday living. Some stay with us permanently, others for short periods of time.

We offer residential and nursing care, and respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. We also provide end-of-life care at a time residents and their families need specialist help and support; and care for younger people with physical disabilities.

The Vale is a modern, purpose-built property with lovely views to Bolsover Castle. Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home.

They enjoy the tranquility of our landscaped gardens - spaces which are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great to spend time in when friends and family visit.

We'd be delighted to show you around so you can experience our homely, welcoming atmosphere for yourself, so please arrange to pop in for a chat.

It's a fantastic nursing home. My mum loves it here after being badly treated in a previous one. As soon as I arrived it came across as a really caring loving place. My mum is highly thought of and feels really at home here. I want to highly recommend it for anyone that's looking for a care home.

Dean Fidler, Son of Resident/Service User at The Vale Care Home

I chose this care home for my family relative to be near me. As you enter the home I noticed no unpleasant smells in many other homes. Also have found majority of staff pleasant and helpful. They all do their best to keep rooms at an acceptable standard of cleanliness and decorated. They are friendly and it's a hard job but feel my aunty is in safe hands.

Jane Wright, Niece of Resident/Service User at The Vale Care Home

The vale is of a very high standard in all aspects and the staff and management are excellent. Thank you.

Malcolm Mellor, Husband of Resident/Service User at The Vale Care Home

The staff here and very friendly and helpful. I visited a few homes in the area and this was by far the best. The staff are very good at their jobs. The place is kept very nice.

Janet O'Connor, Volunteer at The Vale Care Home

Mother-in-law stayed in The Vale for a little over three years. She had dementia but was independent and new her own mind. She remained like this up to the last three months. She was always encouraged to join in the activities and outings which she enjoyed. The staff treated her very well and she got on well with most of them. We were never worried about the level of care which she received when we left her after our visits. Well done to the caring management and staff at every level. I could sing their praises for a very long time.

Jackie Smith, Daughter-in-law of Resident/Service User at The Vale Care Home

My lovely mum passed away on 22 October 2015 whilst in the care of your fabulous team at The Vale, Bolsover. Dad and me cannot praise highly enough the care and dignity mum was given in her end of life treatment. All the team, and in particular the night staff, were so very kind and tried their very best to make mum as comfortable as possible. I will happily recommend Richard and his wonderful team.

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.
