Hatfield is located in a civil parish in Hertfordshire, in an area historically associated with aircraft design and manufacture.
The care home is a stone’s throw from The Galleria shopping centre and a short bus ride from Hatfield town centre.
Our dedicated team provides a range of care and support for our residents, including residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.
Our care home has been designed with the usual comforts you’d expect such as welcoming lounges with fireplaces, light and airy dining rooms and cosy bedrooms, which provide a warm place for our residents to rest and relax. We also have our very own pub called ‘The Comet’.
However, it’s the small personal touches and our friendly team, who care for our residents as if they were members of their own family, which make Hatfield a true home from home.
We welcome visits from family and friends and have an open door policy, so whether loved ones like to pop in for a coffee or take part in an activity, we encourage them to become part of the community within our home.
We hold regular meetings for residents and relatives, enabling our residents and their loved ones to be directly involved in everyday life at Hatfield.
Pre-bookable respite care
Did you know we now provide residential, dementia and nursing pre-bookable respite care? Loved ones can enjoy home-cooked meals, cosy lounges and bedrooms, and a host of activities during their short-term stay with us.

Set across smaller and more intimate ‘communities’, our spacious 118 bedrooms are all en-suite and benefit from having internet access and television points. Several of our ground-floor bedrooms also have patio doors leading out to the gardens.
Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and furnished, although we do encourage our residents to bring personal ornaments, pictures and small items of furniture to make their rooms their own.
We have several lounge areas for our residents to use as they wish, whether taking part in activities, catching up with friends and family or simply reading a good book.
Our dining rooms provide a welcoming atmosphere to enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in the company of others.
Complete with optics, our specially created pub ‘The Comet’ is the perfect place for our residents to socialise over a game of cards or dominoes.
Our landscaped garden has raised flower beds for our residents who like to do a spot of light gardening and includes seating areas, making it the perfect place to relax in the sunshine.

Our care team is on-hand 24 hours a day, every day of the year and staff are dedicated to delivering care with kindness.
To ensure we continue to provide the best standards of care and support to our residents, we recruit and train only the best staff.
Whilst they receive a variety of on-going training to ensure their skills remain up-to-date, along with an enhanced DBS check (formerly CRB), it is their dedication to our residents which makes them truly special.
We believe it is important that our residents spend their time as they choose, so have a dedicated activities team to support them to take part in interesting activities, rekindle old past times and try new things.
We have a hairdressing salon and our residents enjoy being pampered by our mobile hairdresser, who visits the care home every week.
Regular activities on offer include everything from reminiscence sessions, arts and crafts, light exercise classes, baking and cake decorating.
Throughout the year, the care home hosts regular themed community events such as summer fetes and Christmas fairs.
We pride ourselves on treating people as individuals, so all our residents have care plans tailored to their individual medical, social and emotional needs. We review care plans on a regular basis and involve family and friends in this process wherever possible.
The range of personal care services we can provide, in partnership with local professionals, include:
- Dental care
- Key worker
Our catering team prides themselves on preparing nutritious, seasonal home-cooked meals, along with mouth-watering home-baked cakes for afternoon tea.
Residents help us to shape the menus and our catering team spends time with them to get feedback on the dishes and their likes and dislikes. They are also able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements.
Breakfast includes a wide variety of choice from cereals and toast to a traditional cooked breakfast.
Lunch and dinnertimes see a selection of sandwiches, home-made soups, salads, jacket potatoes and hot meals such as a Sunday roast with all the trimmings and favourites including fish and chips, cottage pie and a hearty casserole.
There is also an array of snacks and refreshments available throughout the day for residents and their loved ones if they get a bit peckish.
