1 Richmond Park Gr, S13 8HX

Housteads is a 40 bedroom home surrounded by beautiful gardens and woodland. When the weather’s nice people enjoy the gardens outside, or people can watch the birds and squirrels out of the window.

We get recommendations from families, friends and social workers who describe our home as homely, warm with a family atmosphere. We feel like a big work family and Housteads has a positive energy which shines through to our residents. You can see how relatives feel part of that family as sometimes even when their loved one has passed away they still keep in touch. People value the care and support we give even if people aren’t here for very long.

We love getting people in to show them around, people can feel the homely atmosphere and see how friendly the staff are - and it smells nice! The bedrooms can be personalised to each resident’s choice as this is their home and we want them to feel that it is. People don’t realise that we don’t have visiting times, friends and relatives can come when they want. Our home has a mixture of staff from different backgrounds. All our staff are allocated to a corridor to give continuity of care and help build strong relationships. When a resident moves in, our Care Plan Co-ordinator will liaise and spend time with the resident and their family to ensure a bespoke care plan tailored that that person’s needs and wishes. We promote independence, dignity and socialisation. We provide or arrange services including laundry, GP, District nurses, opticians, dentist, hairdressers and chiropodist.

We’re close to amenities including supermarkets, local pubs and eating places. We’re just 4 miles outside of Sheffield city centre and on a local bus route.

People love our big function room, we use it for entertainment, families use it for big groups and celebrations and we use it for special activities. That could be anything from some indoor gardening, flower arranging magicians or arts and crafts. We have two activity workers and people come in once a week to run physical activity sessions,  and we have lots of other visitors including therapy dogs and miniature ponies. we do all sorts of games and we’ve got good links with our local community. St Mary’s Church come in once a month and we’re part of Adopt a Care Home with a local school, that’s lovely, you can hear the children laughing and singing all around the home. We organise trips out; that could be a barge trip, cinema, bowling, shopping, and we take people out to tea dances and Friendship lunches and we’re having our own summer fare in July.

People like seeing residents together in the lounges, it’s really sociable, people aren’t isolated and there’s always company 24/7.

There’s a lot of choice in food here:  if people don’t like what’s on offer we’ll always find an alternative. There are loads of snacks in between meals and if there’s something someone wants we’ll provide it - after all it’s their home. Lots of our residents love traditional home-cooked food; meat and potato pie, fish and chips and stew are all favourites and we’ve also got a lady who loves curry so the cooks always make that too. Our senior cook and carers all spend time finding out what people love to eat.

We welcome all feedback and take this on board to help us provide the best possible care and experience for both residents and their families.

The weekly fee for Housteads Residential Home is £818.
