About Us

Darwin House was opened in June 1991 to provide residential care for 25 older people under the registration category of "Old Age, not falling into any other category". Are you looking for a residential care home in Sheffield? Here at Darwin House we offer the flexibility and luxury that you would expect from a hotel. At Darwin House we realise and value the important things in life, we pride ourselves on the extra attention to detail and the warm and friendly atmosphere that everyone who lives or works here enjoys and helps to create. The ethos of our home is to make life easier and more comfortable for individuals whilst encouraging independence.

Darwin House is a privately owned luxurious residential home. A beautifully appointed Victorian building with elegantly proportioned dining and reception rooms. Complementing this is a purpose built modern wing with large individual rooms. The accommodation is of the highest quality throughout, and everything you need to make life more comfortable has been made available. Guests enjoy their own individually styled room, well maintained to provide the utmost comfort.

All our staff are caring and supportive and work to build a strong rapport with guests. We find that this relationship helps guests to lead a happy and comfortable life, despite the problems old age can bring.

We encourage all to take full advantage of the many social, leisure and recreational activities, with care staff on-hand 24 hours a day to help out as and when a guest requires assistance.
