Finding the right care home in Sheffield

Choosing a care home for a loved one can be difficult, however with over 100 care homes in Sheffield, and over 80 of these being rated Good or Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), making the right decision can depend on your loved one’s needs. Here are a few of our top tips to help you narrow your options.

Location, location, location

It is important to find a care home where the resident can feel at home, whether that be moving closer to friends and family, or staying in an area they know well. With over 100 care homes in Sheffield, and great transport links, there will be one to meet your loved ones needs. Cities like Sheffield can offer centrally located homes like Brackenfield Hall, or something a little further out of the city like Henleigh Hall Care Home, situated on the edge of the Peak District. However, it is our advice to think about where people will be visiting from, and ask the care homes directly what public transport options are available.

How to get the 'at home' feeling

As well as thinking about the location, consider how your loved one likes to spend their days and what would make them feel more comfortable in a care home. Would they value having some quiet space to sit and watch the TV or read a book? Do they like to keep sociable and active? Below are a few things to consider that will help make this change as smooth as possible for your loved one:

Care homes with gardens

Does your loved one like to potter in the garden, or take pride in growing vegetables? There are several care homes in Sheffield that are very happy for residents to help care for the outdoor spaces, such as the Abbey Grange Nursing Home. Or perhaps they enjoy just having some space to sit in the afternoon sun with a cup of tea, in which case homes like the Belmont House may have smaller gardens but with lovely seating areas available. Our advice is to think about how much your loved ones use their outdoor space today and ensure when you get a tour of the homes (in person or virtually) you can imagine them at home in the space shown.

Pet friendly care homes

Many care homes in Sheffield have regularly organised ‘therapet’ visits, where calm and friendly dogs and cats visit to provide companionship to animal-loving residents. Some care homes, like Ascot Lodge Nursing Home, allow personal pets to visit frequently, upon appointment with the home manager. So if your loved one is a lover of pets, we always recommend asking care homes about their pet policies.

Care home activities and days out

Most care homes work hard to offer residents a mix of spaces to relax in and spaces that will be a hive of activity. Homes in Sheffield are no different, with many offering a number of on-site facilities including libraries, cinemas, hair salons, cafes and a range of group-based activities. Many also try to offer residents days out to the local Botanical Gardens, Peak District or a matinee at the Lyceum Theatre - when possible of course!
