Welcome to Millfield Care Home - A specialist nursing, residential and short term respite care home in Chesterfield.
My name is Karen Radford and I am the Home Manager at Millfield Care Home in Chesterfield. I have been working in the care sector for over 34 years and have been Home Manager at this Orchard Care Home since 2013.
Millfield is a residential care home offering specialist nursing and respite care services. Our home offers 48 ensuite rooms all fitted with modern amenities and services and benefits from being close to numerous vibrant surrounding towns. We were very proudly awarded the Derbyshire Quality Premium Award for going above and beyond by Derbyshire Local Authority.
At Millfield Care Home we pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere, we encourage all our residents to personalise their own rooms, with pictures and additional furnishings should they wish, to ensure that they feel relaxed and secure in their own home. Residents consider the staff at Millfield as family, with many of our staff even having loved ones staying in the home. New staff at our home must pass the approval of our residents with them even sitting in our interviews on occasion.
Each member of our care team is experienced, with ongoing professional training as part of their development. We are actively engaged with the local community, taking part in regular outings and activities and offering stimulating social sessions within the home. We receive support from the WI, local church and chapel and often have visits from the local schools and nurseries. Recently the local school raised funds to refurbish the exterior of the home, school children and residents helped out by painting fences and potting plants. The staff at Millfield Care Home regularly go above and beyond for the residents.
