Life at Dearne Valley Care Centre
Close to the former South Yorkshire mining communities of Bolton upon Dearne and Goldthorpe, Dearne Valley is a purpose built care centre for older people. With 20 residential care beds and 20 dedicated to residents with dementia, Dearne Valley has recently been refurbished and re-decorated to create a cosy and comfortable home. All 33 single rooms have en-suite bathroom facilities and modern equipment to ensure the health and safety of residents with limited mobility.
Our activities co-ordinator plans a regular programme of games, including bingo and Scrabble as well as arts and crafts. The entertainment schedule features a range of musicians and entertainers and, in the summer, the trips to the seaside town of Cleethorpes are particularly popular.

REQUEST A CALLBACK
My mum had been a resident at The Grove since last September and I would just like to say how much she enjoyed it there.
She was kept clean and well-fed.She always said that the meals were lovely couldn’t ask for better.She had clean clothes on everyday.
The staff were always kind and pleasant.When I visited every day they always opened the door to me with a warm welcome and a smile.
Nothing was too much trouble for them.When mum took ill in May they were very concerned, sent for the doctor when he was needed.They couldn’t do enough for her or me while I stayed with her.The staff really did look after her in her final days.My brother and I cannot thank the staff enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness.
