Welcome to our house

Situated in the Sherwood district of Nottingham, The Firs Residential Care home is a purpose built home with 31 single ensuite rooms. We encourage residents to decorate the rooms to their liking with their own furniture and personal items to help feel right at home. 

The home is in a vibrant area of Sherwood with the busy high street close by. We are in walking distance of many shops, restaurants, cafes, churches, the library and a post office. We have several bus stops close by as well as the Nottingham Community Transport bus who run a door to door service for those who can't access public transport.  

At The Firs Residential Care Home, our fantastic team will help support you in making your own decisions about how you want to live your life. We recognise the importance of maintaining relationships with your family and friends and will support you in pursuing any hobbies and interests you have.

By getting to know residents and learning about your interests and hobbies, we organise a varied programme of events and social activities which you are welcome to join in with if you wish. We have regular film afternoons, visits from the local library, and fantastic live music from local performers. We also arrange trips on a regular basis, taking in suggestions from residents about the places they would like to visit. In the past we have visited garden centres, gone on river boat trips, and been to the local theatre to enjoy some incredible shows. At The Firs, we aim to ensure that our fantastic social calendar includes something for everyone, with every opportunity to pursue existing hobbies and try out some new things too. 

The meals served at The Firs are prepared and cooked by the talented kitchen staff at the neighbouring Sycamore House, and served in our own spacious and bright dining room. A fantastic choice of meals are offered daily from an eight-week seasonal menu. We cater for all preferences and dietary requirements, with our cooks available daily to provide dietary advice and information. You are able to have meals in your own room if desired.

Visitors are always welcome at the house. We also have the opportunity for friends and family members to stay over if they wish. For the comfort of other residents, we do ask that your visitors avoid coming in at meals times or very late in the evening.
