Lake and Orchard Residential and Nursing Home in YorkKelfield, York, North Yorkshire, YO19 6RE
Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic
Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.
Surrounded by countryside in the quaint village of Kelfield, Lake and Orchard is set in a picturesque location. Aptly named, the home boasts a paddock of orchard trees at the entrance; apple, pear and plum to name a few. To the side of the residential and nursing home is a beautiful fishing lake.
Our attentive and dedicated team provides residential care, nursing care, dementia care, palliative and respite care.
Nature really is at the heart of Lake and Orchard, with so many places to enjoy the true beauty of the 12 acres of untouched land surrounding us – including the River Ouse, which runs along the length of the home. In addition to our front gardens, which contain decked seating areas and a summer house, there are also several other gardens for our residents to enjoy.
The tranquil gardens are perfect for relaxing during the warmer weather, with wheelchair-friendly seating areas, flora filled pergolas and raised flower beds for our green-fingered residents, for whom we hold a weekly gardening club.
The en-suite bedrooms, many of which have views over the gardens, have been recently refurbished and are extremely spacious.
Keeping connected with our community
Lake and Orchard have a fantastic programme of activities for our residents. Making the most of our wonderful location. As well as the gardening club, our team supports residents to enjoy walks around the beautiful grounds. And for something a little further afield, the minibus trips and excursions to places across York and beyond are a real highlight.
The weekly trips include jaunts to the seaside at Scarborough for fish and chips, the marina at Naburn or even shopping trips to York’s designer outlet.
Passionate about helping residents to remain connected to the wider community, we support them to attend a range of events outside the residential and nursing home. With both a dementia coffee morning and Kurling Club twice a month at Portholme Church and monthly Memories Café at the local church, our residents love to meet new people.
Located in such a small village, we like to welcome people from the local community in Kelfield to visit us at Lake and Orchard. We often invite them along for celebratory events, including carol singing, our Christmas fayre and summer fete, with live entertainment, a Punch and Judy show and stalls galore.
Weekly activities also include arts and crafts, chair exercises, pet therapy, pamper sessions in our hairdressing and beauty salon and a bingo club.
