Alder House Care Home is a Nottingham care home in Nuthall and really quite an exceptional place. It’s noticeable as soon as you cross the threshold and meet the residents and staff. The sense of togetherness is so apparent that it shines out and is something we are really proud of. ‘Ten out of ten and a gold star.’ That’s one happy resident’s opinion!
The home is just off the A610 Nottingham Road in Nuthall, adjoining one of the entrances to Broxtowe County Park and a three-minute walk from the Phoenix tram stop for trams into Nottingham. Our residential, dementia and respite care for residents is of the highest quality and focused on enhancing each and every resident’s well-being. It’s an excellent place for retirement living with a touch of luxury.
All bedrooms are spacious and fully en-suite with walk-in showers and 3/4 size beds as standard. We also have a handful of companion suites with their own small kitchenette and living room, ideal for couples who like that extra bit of independence. All our interiors are well furnished and comfortable and companionable places.
We pay special attention to dementia care. For instance we have a café full of objects from yesteryear which remind residents of the past and how times have changed. These are great talking points.
The volunteering charity Attend works with us to ensure that local volunteers are involved with our nationally acclaimed activity programme. Just take a look at our dedicated Facebook, which is updated regularly with all the goings on!
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our home manager Catherine Bower or our front of house team on 0115 975 8110. Feel free to call by and take a look around our home, and perhaps meet some residents?
Alder House is neighbours with another Avery run Nottingham care home.
Our Garden Looks Great!
And that’s because we make it so. We are very proud of our extensive gardens and love to be out there. Here is a list of what we do, not the gardener:
- Sweep the paths
- Fill up the bird feeders
- Water the plants
- Watch the birds
- Decide if the lettuces are ready for a salad lunch
- Chat to the chickens – any eggs today?
- Stroke a bunny (not one that munches our lettuces)
- And of course have a nice cup of tea
So you can see that there is plenty going on. The same is true of what happens inside the building. There’s a lot you can do in a chair besides watching the telly: ‘Oomph’ exercises, playing football, balloon tennis or dominoes with your granddaughter, for instance. Life within Alder House is always stimulating and varied. We recognise the importance of preventing falls and so have a specially designed programme of regular core strength exercises. Our lead Recreation Activity Coordinator has been recognised nationally for her high-octane activities and sheer personality.
Alder House is alive with chatter, and guests often comment on the companionship that life here offers. Staff, residents and guests all mingle freely, while our popular Film Club enjoys daily viewings in our cinema: old movie classics are hugely popular. For others, it is our Sunday Pub Club for which nothing is better than a pie and a pint.
We get out a lot too in our own minibus. Have a look at our well-stocked Facebook. There’s too much to mention here!

Fine China on Lace Tablecloths
We like to keep up our standards! We get the best china out for special occasions and the chef and team don’t disappoint with what goes with it. The same is true for all mealtimes in fact, as we have food that is freshly prepared each day on the premises and carefully considered for its nutritional content. A choice of menus is available and all dietary requirements are catered for. We’re good at tempting poor appetites too.
Meal times are an important part of life at Alder House and greatly anticipated by the residents. We never forget that and you can often find chef chatting to residents about their likes and dislikes and what can be improved. Mealtimes are when we all come together and socialise, perhaps with the aid of a glass of wine, which is always served with meals. Some of our residents even meet beforehand for an aperitif – in the garden if it’s nice. Why don’t you come and join them? Guests are always welcome!
