Richmond Care Home, where care matters...

Richmond Care Home in Shirebrook offers a friendly, homely atmosphere, where our residents are cared for as individuals, and treated with dignity and respect. The staff, led by Kate Birch, provide quality nursing and social care to enable our guests to lead fulfilled lives. They also have good local knowledge of Shirebrook and the surrounding areas.

We care for residents requiring daily treatment and supervision, as well as those needing simple social care. Our experience is wide-ranging, from providing care for dementia, strokes, cancer, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, visual and hearing impairment through to palliative care. We welcome both private self-funding individuals and those who gain financial support from the local authority.
