Our care home in Derby has such a variety of spaces from private dining rooms to a fully installed cinema, there is something here for everyone, a room whatever the occasion or mood. From relaxing reading lounges to the buzz and spaciousness of Wren’s Café, with its floor to ceiling windows. Life at Derby Heights is what you make it, whether it is reminiscing with new friends, entertaining family or just catching up on the papers in one of our many communal lounges.
Derby Heights offers a variety of en-suite bedrooms, including companion suites for couples and bedrooms that access their very own patio areas and for whom our large, landscaped garden with its mature trees, paths, raised beds and gazebo is just an open door away.

Laughter is the Best Medicine…
Life within our residential care home is both stimulating and varied. We recruit energetic Well-being Co-ordinators who ensure that there is always something going on, whatever your interests, each and every day of the week. We publish our programme of activities and events so that family and friends can join in, and we also ensure that our Derby Heights Facebook page is regularly updated so that relatives can see what we are getting up to, even when they are unable to visit. It is something that has proven very popular.
We like to get out and about across Derbyshire too and our mini-van is a regular visitor to local places of interest, whether it is trips to the theatre, local heritage sites, shopping or just a Sunday lunch down at the pub.Enquire Now
