 “Maple Leaf House is an excellent home, with trained and compassionate staff and a bright and spacious feel.” Independent review on

Where are we?

Maple Leaf House is located on the edge of Ripley, some 12 miles north of Derby city centre by way of Denby and its famous pottery.

Lots to explore

Our landscaped and secure gardens are lovely areas to enjoy the fresh air, and our reminiscence and sensory rooms offer the opportunity for some quiet time. The hair salon is great for a spot of pampering, and our coffee shop is a perfect place to get together with friends.

We have a schedule of optional events and activities, helping residents to explore their interests and discover new ones. Along with frequent animal visits, there’s music therapy, armchair exercises, gardening, flower arranging, arts and crafts, bingo, quizzes and church services with our dedicated chaplain.

We regularly have local singers and musicians in to perform and love to hold themed events.

Award-winning music therapy

Maple Leaf House care home is committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to help alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia. Our trained therapist is funded by charitable donations. Our therapist interacts directly with residents through live music therapy sessions. This includes singing, playing simple percussion instruments or responding to musical cues in a one-to-one or group setting. Take a look at our video to find out more about this life-changing therapy.

Chaplaincy and pastoral support

Maple Leaf House is proud to be supported by a dedicated Chaplain who offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs. Our chaplain provides a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Seize the day – unique and memorable opportunities

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.
