As a regular visitor to York House over the past 12 months, I can only express my admiration for the way that the residents are cared for. Every respect of the care is exceptional and of a constant high standard.
One very important feature is the availability of staff/management to discuss any concerns should the need arise. This open attitude gives the families of any resident a feeling of security and certainly minimises any worries that the family may have.

Dining

Dining is a hugely important factor in many lives, it is more than simply sustenance. Culturally, both food and dining are at the core of our most joyous experiences in life; weddings, festivals, birthdays and holidays to name just a few.

We encourage our residents to invite their loved ones into the home for lunch, dinner and even breakfast so that meal times offer the same opportunities for socialising as they would’ve done throughout each individual’s life.

What is unique about the dining experience we offer here is ‘choice’, which extends beyond simply WHAT you wish to eat, it includes WHERE, WHEN and WHO WITH. Not only do our residents have a superb choice of meals each day but they have the freedom to eat them wherever they like, whenever they like, and with whomever they choose.

We often incorporate food into our activities, providing buffets at parties and BBQs during summer garden parties. We have even hosted ‘Come dine with me’ style evenings in which favourite meals are pitted against one another, diners then voting for their favourite.

Our catering staff are highly skilled and in addition to their knowledge within hospitality they are subject to our programme of care related training, this gives them a broad understanding of the often complex needs of our residents. Our dining team cater for a diverse range of dietary requirements and have experience in tailoring menus to suit every individual’s specific needs.

Entertainment

Regular activities include flower arranging, art and craft sessions, quiz nights and tea parties. As well as fun events in the home, entertainers often come and visit us too. We have recently been visited by the Salvation Army, musicians and local drama students.

As you would expect, special holidays are incorporated into our activity calendar and birthdays are always celebrated with a party and a big slice of cake!

We invite our residents to join in with choosing and planning activities and encourage those moving in with us to continue with their current hobbies and interests.
