We have four care homes in the North, providing a range of residential care, dementia care, nursing care, palliative care and respite care.
Our two care homes in Cheshire, including our new flagship nursing care home Upton Dene, are in the city of Chester and the town of Congleton. Our other care homes are situated in the thriving areas of Hull and Sheffield.
Our care homes in Cheshire and Yorkshire include all of the usual comforts you’d expect such as warm and welcoming living areas, bright and airy dining rooms and cosy bedrooms which are our resident’s personal space to rest and relax in.
However, we believe it’s the personal touches and the quality of tailored care and support delivered which make them true homes for our residents.
Our staff are carefully chosen for their warm and compassionate nature and we believe that kindness is at the very heart of the care services we provide with our teams focused on delivering quality care and support which would be fit for a member of their own family.
When a resident joins us, together we take the time to build a picture of their life so far so that we can understand who they are as an individual. This enables us to ensure our residents not only receive the care and support they need but that they live happy and fulfilling lives.
All of our care homes in Yorkshire and Cheshire have dedicated activities people who support our residents to try new experiences and rekindle old past times. Residents are encouraged to continue with the things they love whilst trying new things – giving them the opportunity to create treasured memories in the company of friends and family.
Our care homes are our residents’ homes, so loved ones and friends are welcome to join us at any time – this could be afternoon tea, when we serve freshly-baked cakes, or to enjoy a community event such as a summer BBQ or Christmas carol service.
Nestled close to the Welsh border, the city of Chester has a magnificent 900-year-old cathedral, Chester Racecourse, which is according to records the oldest working racecourse in Britain, an amphitheatre, Chester Zoo, a wealth of restaurants and bistros, as well as hundreds of shops in the city’s designer outlet Cheshire Oaks.
Lying on the banks of the River Dane, Congleton is a charming market town which features several pubs and restaurants, as well as a Tudor manor house, Little Moreton Hall and a string of trails for keen walkers and cyclists to explore. These include the historic Biddulph Valley Way, which was once used to carry coal from the potteries to Congleton by rail.
Also full of attractions is Hull, which has won the prestigious titles of UK City of Culture for 2017. The East Yorkshire city features popular museums, a scale line bridge and hosts an abundance of community festivals, including the annual arts, culture and music festival Freedom.
Another popular city in the North is Sheffield. This well-known urban city features art galleries, museums, theatres, beautiful Botanical Gardens and an indoor food haven New Moor Market. Other hidden treasures are the countless walking and cycling trails in the city, with two-thirds of Sheffield designated as green space thanks to the spectacular Peak District National Park, and not forgetting the Antique’s Quarter.
