Forest Hill Care Home in Worksop

A real home-from-home, Forest Hill is one of Barchester's high quality care homes in the East Midlands. Opened in 1996, the home was specifically designed to deliver first class nursing care for older people. We also offer support for those living with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia on our Memory Lane Community, which is our dementia nursing unit. Our 32-bedded Memory Lane Community is a prime example of dementia care at its very best.

Our purpose-built specialist unit, the Portland Suite, first opened its doors in May 2012. Our capable and experienced team work towards supporting choice, change and independence for younger adults living with mental health needs and associated challenges. Offering 21 en-suite rooms, furnished to an exceptional standard, our aim is to offer a therapeutic environment intended to support each resident on their own individual pathway to well-being.

Please feel free to call in or contact us so that we can discuss what we can offer you.

Types of care

Here at Forest Hill, we provide person-centred, individualised care for those living with dementia in our Memory Lane community and for those with more complex needs and requirements in our Portland Suite. We receive compliments from relatives and external agencies about the way in which we care for the people that live with us. Health professionals often tell us that they have noticed an improvement in the person we're supporting since they have come to stay at Forest Hill, in terms of their functionality and mood.

Welcome to Forest Hill, my name is Elizabeth and I am the General Manager here.

As a qualified Mental Health Nurse, I am passionate about person-centred care and making every moment special for our residents. I joined the private care sector in 2015, following my time as a Clinical Educator for the NHS in complex services. I was excited to join Barchester in 2016, as the company shares my values and beliefs regarding care delivery and staff engagement. Our teams work hard to build relationships with all our residents and offer support to our relatives past and present. We have an active Relatives Support Group, which is open to all.  We are a committed team; passionate about working creatively with our residents to enhance and improve the quality of their lives.
