Welcome to Harrogate Lodge Care Home
You'll find Harrogate Lodge in Chapel Allerton, a cosmopolitan suburb of Leeds, West Yorkshre.
Here we provide different levels of care to suit a range of needs, from residential care to nursing and palliative care.
Our team of registered nurses, senior care assistants and well trained care assistants is supported by GPs, a chiropodist, an optician, tissue-viability nurses, and district nurses.
We're close to shopping amenities, street cafes, and Roundhay Park with its lake and Tropical World. There are large gardens around the home with a patio area for people to enjoy the fresh air.
All bedrooms are en-suites, decorated to a high standard and have 24-hour nurse-call systems; some enjoy views over the gardens. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more homely.

Throughout October Four Season’s Health Care have been celebrating Older People’s Day, an event which recognises the achievements and contributions that older people make to our society.
As well as a variety of events and celebrations across the county, we have been talking to and filming residents, their families and our staff to hear their ‘words of wisdom’.
Many residents at our homes talked to us about what they have learnt during their lives, and any advice they have to share. We also talked to their families and the team here at Four Seasons about what they have learnt from residents and the older people in their lives.
From lessons on enjoying life and focusing on your family, to some slightly cheekier messages, it has been fantastic to hear from people at our homes across the country. To hear some of the words of wisdom click on the video below.

A six-month long pilot scheme has taken place at Springfield Care Home in Blackburn. The scheme was introduced by Dr Tanveer Ahmed, who recognised that giving patients a dose of saline in early stages of illness could cut down on hospital admissions.
Dr Ahmed spent an hour visiting Springfield each day to monitor the health of 14 residents. Residents that were recognised as being dehydrated were prescribed with an IV of saline for three to five days within the care home setting. The intervention of early saline has helped cut down hospital admissions by 75% and in turn, improved residents’ health and saved hundreds of pounds in expensive treatments.
The intervention ran for a total of six months and has seen a reduction of hospital referrals decrease from 4% to 1% this month. This overall has saved the hospital at least £800 to £1,000 per day per patient.
Dr Ahmend said “It seems quite impressive that a small amount of IV given earlier on in any kind of illness could have such benefits. It’s amazing to see how the residents feel psychologically a lot healthier when they are in the care home environment. When a resident is dehydrated, they tend not to involve themselves in physiotherapy – with this supplementation of saline, they are much likely to improve because they are participating in the physiotherapy”.

The team at Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds recently made a special wish come true for a resident. Garry Clements has been a resident at Harrogate Lodge for a number of years and has built strong relationships with the team. It was his dream to see his Grand Daughter get married – this was all made possible by the kindness and dedication of two care assistants.
Towards the end of 2014, Garry was given just days to live but the team helped him on his road to recovery. With his health problems, Garry never thought it would be possible for him to attend his Grand Daughter, Deborah’s wedding. However, senior care assistants - Roz Studholme and Eilidh Murdoch, made it their mission to ensure Garry was able to attend the ceremony and surprise all the guests with his special appearance.
Sure enough, Roz and Eilidh accompanied Garry to the ceremony which was held late August 2015, where he was able to share the heart-warming moment his Grand Daughter tied the knot. “It was a huge surprise for everyone to see Garry there waiting for Deborah to arrive” Audrey, Garry’s wife told us, “It was a day of happiness and emotion. Garry smiled the whole time; it was as if he knew how special the day was”.
Both Roz and Eilidh said, “The day will go down as one of the most memorable for us. I felt like I was doing something really worthwhile. It was very emotional – to see the smile on Audrey’s face was priceless”.
Sue Green, Home Manager, explained “This is what it’s all about – everything we do is to improve our residents’ lives. So many members of our team go above and beyond the call of duty; I am really proud to have both Roz and Eilidh as part of our wonderful team at Harrogate Lodge. When we saw the photographs from the day, we all needed a box of tissues! It was such a lovely gesture”.
