Sheffcare is a registered charity, operating in Sheffield and serving the needs of over 1000 older people. The company began operating as a not for profit company in 1994, when a number of care homes were transferred out of local authority ownership into the ownership of the company. The organisational vision was to secure the provision of services and provide high quality care for older people in Sheffield at the lowest possible price. The organisational vision was to secure the provision of services and provide high quality care for older people in Sheffield at the lowest possible price. The charity has now been operating for over 20 years and this element of the vision remains the same. The needs, wishes and aspirations of our clients remain paramount and everything we do is focussed on improving the experiences of our service users.
As a charity, every penny is invested back into our homes and the training of the people that work within them. We're proud to be able to say, that every single one of our homes has achieved a Five Star Award for Food Excellence and Kitchen Hygiene and that we are consistently praised by the Care Quality Commission for the services we deliver.
Each one of our homes is different; in size, layout and areas of specialisation. Some of have particular expertise in caring for more dependent residents and people living with dementia and in one we offer specialist care for the young physically disabled people. They all share something very important in common, however, a happy atmosphere and the fierce determination of the staff that work in them to really make a difference to people's lives - to provide not only physical care but to bring a smile and a little extra joy to each day.
