Welcome to Millfield Care Home
A specialist nursing, residential and short term respite care home in Chesterfield.
Rated Good by our regulators CQC, Millfield is a 48 bed residential care home offering specialist nursing and respite care services with bright and modern en-suite rooms. We were very proud to be awarded the Derbyshire Quality Premium Award for going above and beyond by Derbyshire Local Authority.
At Millfield we pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere, our residents are at the forefront of everything we do and we host a residents committee regularly so residents are able to voice their opinions and decide on what menus they would like to see. Residents are involved in every aspect of how the home runs, they sit in on interviews with new staff and also give feedback on what activities they would like to take part in.
Some of our highly qualified staff have placed their own family members in the home, which emphasises that all residents are treated as family. Many of our staff members have been with the home for many years and residents are very familiar with them. As a home, Millfield has strong links with the local community, we enjoy welcoming people into the home and taking part in local events and activities.
Types of Care provided
“My mum arrived at Millfield in very poor health, after a prior nursing home stay. Instantly, the Millfield staff went above and beyond to welcome mum, make her comfortable and ensure her environment was as loving as possible. As family members, we found the support and guidance provided second to none. Staff went out of their way to help and support us, something that was incredibly reassuring at such a difficult time.”
