Our Millhouses Park Club

Every Tuesday & Thursday 10am – 4pm

Millhouses Works Cricket Club, Millhouses Park Cricket Ground Millhouses Park, Abbeydale Road South, Millhouses, Sheffield S7 2QL

This beautiful venue is situated in Millhouses Park in the neighbourhood of Millhouses. The area gained its name from historic corn mills and cutlers wheels situated in the area served by the River Sheaf. The remains of the Ecclesall Corn Mill are situated right next to our venue, the Millhouses Works Cricket Club Pavilion. The Pavilion was fully rebuilt and finished in 2022 and is a clean, light and airy space with fantastic views across the park. It is fully accessible and as its located within the park we have the outdoors right on our doorstep! The park benefits from beautiful gardens, a café and a boating lake with numerous other amenities nearby, luckily there is plenty of room within the clubhouse for indoor activities during the changeable British weather!

Our specialist day care clubs in Millhouses will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Tuesday the 8th of August 2023 from 10am-4pm.

We will be reaching out to other services within the local community to enrich our day centres with a variety of activities such as entertainers and animal therapy. Regular trips, often within the local area for lunch, ice cream or coffee or visiting petting farms or garden centres also provide valuable sensory experiences for our clients.

Sometimes we may go further afield to take advantage of the stunning Peak District right on our doorstep. All activities are devised with the interests of our clients at their core, ensuring a fun and purposeful day in a safe and nurturing environment.

Assistance needed with personal care and medication throughout the day? No problem, our appropriately trained dementia specialists can meet all our client’s needs from those with mild to more advancing dementia. This in turn enables families to enjoy a guilt free day of respite while being reassured their loved one is happy and cared for with us at the Rainbow Care Group.

    Caroline Bushby

    Hi I’m Caroline! I live near Chesterfield with my partner Andrew and fur baby Ted and I am proud to be the day club manager for the South Sheffield Branch of The Rainbow Care Group.

    My journey working in the care sector started over 16 years ago as a domiciliary carer in the Harrogate area. This was a job I loved as it gave me the opportunity to help a diverse range of people within their own homes, promoting dignity and choice, assisting clients to retain their independence for as long as possible. Many of the clients I cared for were living with neurodegenerative disorders like dementia so I began to learn quite quickly about the challenges they faced day to day in a world that was not always understanding of cognitive impairments and sometimes frightening for the clients themselves. It gave me a great deal of pride to help such clients by providing reassurance, safety and support to carry out daily activities that they would otherwise struggle with. I enjoyed talking to and getting to know clients while carrying out my duties, learning about their life experiences and things they were passionate about.

    My domiciliary care job inspired me to undertake my nurse training and in 2010 I started a degree in evidence based nursing practice at The University of York. I graduated and qualified as a nurse in 2013 after spending two months on an elective placement in Ghana, West Africa which was both an incredible and eye opening experience.

    My nursing career began in Wakefield for The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust where I worked for a decade in acute medicine. Throughout my time there I met many people living with dementia and cognitive impairments and rose to the challenge of providing the best care possible for them in a challenging clinical environment. As I progressed to a more senior role, I took pride in making the area I worked in as dementia friendly as possible and strived to set an example to others of how individualised care can still be provided even within the constraints of a hospital environment.

    I am super excited about my new role in charge of the Sheffield South branch of The Rainbow Care Group as it allows me to take the individualised care I have been providing to patients and clients over the years to an entirely new level. Providing activities tailored around the needs and preferences of the clients who attend gives me an immense sense of job satisfaction and there really is nothing better than seeing people enjoy themselves in a safe and supportive environment.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Is the taster day free?

    Totally. We want you to experience the day as if you were a full member. This means places are limited, so please contact us today to reserve a place.

    Is it a full day or half day?

    The day runs from 10am until 4pm. This is really important to give the carer a full day respite, but also to embed the loved one into the group. The change that takes place when someone gets a full day of stimulation is much faster, so beneficial all round.

    Can the carer stay with the loved one?

    We don’t advise this, no. This is because it is as important for the carer to get some time off and feel refreshed as it is for the loved one to feel part of the group.

    Is there food?

    Yes, we provide a healthy, nutritious lunch for all. (Allergies will be discussed prior to a taster day)

    Do you give personal care?

    We can provide personal care and we will deliver this support in the most respectful and dignified way possible. We provide a thorough assessment where we will be able to offer clarification on everything we can provide as part of our service.
