Dearnevale care home in Grimethorpe


Rated "Outstanding" by the CQC, Dearnevale, which is located near Barnsley, is a specialist nursing care home for adults with complex needs. Service users at Dearnevale live in one of four units, each with 10 beds - Greenside, Ladywood, Darbyshire and Fuller.

Each unit has a dining room, nurses station and lounge. Bedrooms are decorated to suit personal tastes, equipped with TV points and an accessible ensuite wet room.

Dearnevale’s two OneCare services are easily accessible from the main home - just a short walk across the road. The first service is made up of two one-bedroom flats, and the second is a two-bedroomed house with communal living areas.

Shared living areas allow service users to interact with one another, and their guests, whilst also developing their independence, in a home from home environment. The flats and the house can be adapted to suit the individual needs of service users, from decorating to their personal tastes to ensuring their home is well-suited to their physical requirements.

Living with us

The Dearnevale team support service users to make choices about how they live their lives, their hobbies and interests and where appropriate, access to education and volunteering.

Outings include day trips to The Deep and Butterfly World, as well as involvement in community events and lunches. Service users are also supported to go on holidays to Center Parcs or to the coast at Bempton. Wherever service users would like to travel to, an accessible minibus means transport is always available to take them. 

All service users have access to the sensory room, designed to develop senses through special lighting, music, and objects. A private, enclosed garden is level and accessible for all and includes areas for sitting and relaxing, with a gazebo for shade.

This care home is the best example I have ever seen of dedicated management and teamwork. Dearnevale and Exemplar Health Care are second to none when it comes to care and support and sets an example others in the sector should follow.
