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.
Life at Harrogate Lodge Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures each person staying here has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to. They promote individual hobbies and interests, and also make sure there are plenty of group activities.
Activities start life in our therapy room, and we have our own hairdressing salon.
We run visits to local places of interest, shopping trips, movie nights and welcome outside entertainers to perform. We also celebrate at least one special seasonal event a month.
Our nutritionally balanced menus are carefully prepared by our chef to ensure each resident enjoys the best combination of nutrition and flavour. We always offer an Afro-Caribbean menu, and other diverse cultural menus can be provided on request.
I am impressed by the high level of care my father received. The staff have wonderful values and show them in the way they interact with the residents and visitors. They treated us with dignity and kindness. Thank you.

Since 2015, Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds has been working with Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group to provide an intermediate care service for older people in the local community.
The service provided at Harrogate Lodge empowers the individuals it supports by working with them to set their own rehab goals, establishing appropriate discharge dates, addressing their psychological and emotional well-being whilst meeting their health and care needs.
What sets Harrogate Lodge aside is the fact that it is supported by a dedicated GP, a consultant geriatrician, its own occupational and physiotherapists and support from community health teams. These professionals meet up three times a week with the individual to ensure all aspects of their needs are being met. This constant review ensures that individuals who use their service are able to meet their discharge dates.
This service has gone from strength to strength. From November 2015 to July 2016, the service has supported 108 individuals with an average stay of 25 days. Between April 2016 to July 2016 the service supported 42 individuals with an average length of stay of 11 days.
More information about the intermediate care service that we provide can be found on our website.

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

Nicky Murphy, Unit Manager from Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds has been crowned the Regional Specialist Services Champion for the East of England in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.
These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this Year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Nicky demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.
During the judging process for the Regional Specialist Services Champion award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including highlighting an individual who champions the diverse range of services we provide (enduring mental health, intermediate care, end of life care etc) whilst demonstrating their dedication to, and advocacy for, the people they care for.
Nicky was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Since Nicky took on the role in December 2015 she has developed the team with a positive and caring attitude. This has been commented on at every visit by families and professionals who visit our home. As well as managing her own team, she has also created another team which is currently piloting a new service in our city. This is now being seen as the way forward as a model of care for intermediate care in Leeds. Nicky is responsive ,prompt and committed which influences her team to also deliver care in this way.”
As the winner for the East of England, Nicky is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.
Debbie Campney, Regional Manager for Four Seasons Health Care in North and South East Yorkshire said: “Nicky is a fantastic asset to Harrogate Lodge Care Home. She epitomizes care and is loved by everyone working, residing and visiting the home. Well done Nicky!”
Sam Jacob, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in the East of England, said: “Nicky is a fantastic asset for my region. She is a terrific colleague who will do her upmost to support the care home teams helping them to continually develop and improve the services they provide. The fact that Mary is one of the people running the pilot for intermediate care in Leeds demonstrates why she is worthy to win this Specialist Services Champion award for the region.”
The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to approximately 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.
The 14 categories have been created to recognise excellence in a variety of roles across the organisation ranging from ‘Carer/Support Worker of the Year’ to ‘Personal Activities Lead Champion’. We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.
“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
