Welcome to the relaxing, homely lifestyle at Barrowhill Hall


Barrowhill Hall is an award-winning specialist dementia care and nursing home standing on the crest of a hill on the Derbyshire/Staffordshire border in a beautiful and tranquil setting with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. We offer the highest quality residential and nursing care in a luxurious, homely and safe environment.

“Barrowhill Hall consists of two independent care centres being Barrowhill Hall and Churnet Lodge. Churnet Lodge focuses on providing a socially supportive  environment for those living with the early stages of Dementia. Care plans are carefully compiled, updated and are overseen by our management team. Whilst Barrowhill Hall offers care and support for people who have more complex needs requiring the meticulous formulation, implementation and evaluation of bespoke, person centered care plans by our dedicated and professional nursing team.

I’ve specialised in Mental Health Nursing for over 20 years, much of that time being spent within the care home industry and I can say without doubt that it’s not common place for care to be delivered like it is at Barrowhill Hall, we feel privileged to be able to provide the care that people deserve. We have a highly trained staff team who with their compassion deliver the highest levels of care and strive only for positive outcomes for the people who live where we work”.

Our Care Services

Barrowhill Hall (across it’s two independent care households) is the perfect choice for those in search of quality care, an active social life, comfortable and luxurious surroundings and nutritious home cooked meals. All of which offered in a warm, safe, secure and welcoming environment.

Both Barrowhill and Churnet Lodge have been specially designed in accordance with the innovative Stirling Academy guidance. We have also used our own research into how to enhance the living environment for people living with memory loss. We have a mixture of larger and quieter lounges, film rooms, a library, spa and hairdressers. The outdoor space is extensive. It has far reaching views of the local countryside and the formal gardens of the JCB world headquarters. All bedrooms are appointed to the highest standards and the majority offer en-suite accommodation.

Dementia Care

Dementia Care

At Barrowhill we provide the finest, tailored residential and nursing services to all individuals who live with us. Round the clock nursing and personal care is always on hand. Our care specialism is dementia and associated forms of the condition. Care Plans are carefully formulated and recorded on our state of the art electronic care planning system.

Professional Nursing Care

Professional Nursing Care

We offer high quality, 24 hour nursing care delivered by our experienced Nursing Team. This care is tailored to the resident to ensure that every resident receives the best care. Our nurses are committed to delivering first-class care. We select our nurses for their compassion and commitment, as well as expertise and qualifications.

Residential Care

Residential Care

Choosing to move into residential care is difficult, but at Barrowhill we believe it’s a positive choice, with an opportunity to live an active lifestyle. This is achieved by offering stimulating social activities and accommodating staff which go out of their way to allow individuals to do what they want in our community.

Respite & Day Care

Respite & Day Care

At Barrowhill we offer respite or day care for those cared for by a relative, friend or carer. As a carer you can relax, knowing that your relative or friend is in a safe and supportive environment, with first-class care tailored to their needs. We also offer convalescent breaks for individuals who are well enough to leave hospital but not yet well enough to return home.

Young Onset Dementia

Young Onset Dementia

The symptoms of dementia are not determined by a person’s age.  Here at Barrowhill  Hall our focus is on person centred care. This means we look at the individual rather than the diagnosis. This is because we find that the time in which a person’s journey with dementia starts can often impact the way in which we tailor and deliver the care to our individual.
