Welcome to Hesslewood House Care Home
You'll find Hesslewood Care Home in the village of Hessle, in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Here we provide excellent quality care including general nursing, residential care, and specialised nursing and residential care for people with dementia.
We also offer respite care to give home carers a much needed break, end-of-life care at a time residents and their families need specialist help and support, and specialist care for younger people with learning or physical disabilities.
People living here enjoy the tranquility of our extensive grounds where they can watch the visiting foxes, squirrels and rabbits, along with our resident peacocks.
We have three units, each with its own light and spacious lounge, patio and sheltered seating areas. These spaces are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
There's also a games room with a snooker table, computers, and table tennis for our younger residents.
All our private single and double bedrooms have en-suite facilities, and all are decorated to a high standard. Some having excellent views of the Humber Bridge.
Life at Hesslewood House Care Home
The people who live here get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan our programme of pastimes and diversions. This include arts and crafts, baking and gentle gardening. We encourage a mix of individual and group activities.
We use our minibus for outings to local attractions, our weekly shopping trips, and visits to the races, theatre and local museums.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each of our refurbished dining areas has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
All of our food is prepared daily, using fresh ingredients, by our talented chef. Menus offer great choice and are changed regularly. Our afternoon teas and fresh home baking are particularly popular with residents and their families.
I am pleased with all aspects of Hesslewood. I changed stuff because although its good its always understaffed.
I'm not a typical entrant I had chosen a sheltered flat, I found a buyer for my house, then became ill after a year as carer. I found myself and my life in one room, however everyone was helpful and I liked having things done for me. I am well looked after very clean and cheerful always someone to help. Medication sorted we need more activities and outings. After 18 months I find myself contented with the care.
My uncle has been a resident at Hesslewood for 18 months and we have been very happy with his care. The staff are kind and caring and always pleasant and the residents are clean and obviously well looked after. I would highly recommend Hesslewood Hall to somebody who is looking for care for their relative.
Having only been in the home for 10 days, we have received exceptional care and attention for mum and dad. The staff are very friendly ad always willing to help and advise us. Especially as it has been an upsetting decision to put my parents into a home. From the very first day we have nothing but confidence and praise for this home. At the moment we have no recommendations to add.
everything is brilliant on the unit and I couldn't ask for better care for my mum.
I have made great friends in here, anyone would like it.
I am happy I have met lots of friends. More need to come, its good. We make pompoms.
I am happy living here. It's perfect. I don't think it could get any better.
I am looked after well.
I am really happy here.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle is celebrating the success of Care Assistants Barbara Castillion and Diana Cox after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.
Kate Wilson, Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Barbara and Diana on their success. We’ve supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They are a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.
Sam Jacob, England East Managing Director, said: “Here at Four Seasons we take great pride in our CHAPs programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. You have come through this long journey, and I want to thank you for your commitment and continued dedication. I also was to thank the mentors for their continuous help and support.
“By working together we can all help provide good quality care everywhere, ensuring residents get the service they deserve. Congratulations once again.”
