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.

Eileen Dunlop, Head of Human Resource and Training for Four Seasons Health Care in Northern Ireland and Wales, is in the running for the Royal College of Nursing Council elections to become a representative for Northern Ireland. The Royal College of Nursing hold these elections each year to give candidates the chance to ensure members’ voices are heard and have an influence on policy.
Eileen has held various nursing leadership roles for 24 years of her career and is eager to develop further relations within this sector. She told us “As I’m currently Head of Human Resources and Training, I have been instrumental in developing good relations between our organisation and the RCN. I believe that independent sector nurses should have the support of a representative organisation. I am eager to support diversity within nursing and I will take every opportunity to ensure the voice of all nurses is heard”.
For further information on the elections, please visit Royal College of Nursing.
Voting can only be done if you are a nurse member of the Royal College of Nursing.
Nurse members will have received the ballot papers which need to be returned to the Electoral Reform Services by Monday 9th November.
Good luck Eileen, from all at Four Seasons Health Care.

Gary Cousins, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse at Four Seasons Health Care NI, is running an Infection Protection and Control day for nursing link staff at a number of Four Seasons care homes today, 17th September 2015.
The focus of the day is to improve the effectiveness of the link role, and to drive quality improvements in day to day nursing practice. Four Seasons are delighted to have the involvement of Rose Gallagher, Infection Control Adviser from the Royal College of Nursing as part of the day. Rose is running a workshop called ‘build a link person’ which asks link staff to assess their capabilities and limitations in communicating with and influencing others.
Other focuses of the day will be on ‘using clinical audits effectively - quality improvement versus quality assurance’ and ‘A Clostridium Difficile outbreak- what did we learn?’.
To read the blog of the day click here. A short podcast interview with Gary and Rose will follow the day to give a brief explanation of why the training was put together, how the collaborative working will benefit both Four Seasons and the Royal College of Nursing, and other key learnings.

Over the past 4 years, Hesslewood House has arranged a Summer Fun Day in which all the Four Seasons Health Care local homes join together and compete in various games and competitions to win prizes for their homes. This year the theme was ‘Countries around the World’. Each of the homes went to town with their costumes. Residents, relatives and friends were all invited to come and join the fun day which turned out to be a great day for all.
There were 7 homes that took part in the day; Hesslewood House as China, Beech Tree as France, Broadacres as India, Randolph House as Australia, Brimington as Egypt, Beech House as Hawaii and Layden Court as Mexico. As part of this, both staff and residents competed to have the best costumes, best themed cake, best decorated wheelchair and best decorated walking frame. Each entry was fantastic; all the homes put a great amount of effort into their decorations and costumes.
Alongside the theme competitions, the staff were also challenging one another in various games and races throughout the day. The teams were able to take part in an obstacle course, egg and spoon races, skipping races, relays and 3 legged races which were great entertainment for everyone involved. There was also hook a duck and a raffle to take part in which helped raised funds for the next Summer Fun Day. There was live entertainment by a local musician as well as a wide selection of food and cakes for everyone to enjoy.
The winners all won prizes to use at their homes such as a barbeque, gardening equipment and a water feature. Randolph won the races and best costume, Beech Tree won best walking frame, Hesslewood won best cake and Brimington won best wheelchair.
Jayne Clark, Regional Manager, said “What a fabulous day our region had! It was a really well organised event that went without a hitch. As you can see from the photos, everyone really enjoyed taking part in the races and competitions. The effort put in to the costumes and decorations by each home was tremendous. We are all looking forward to doing it all again next year, plans are already underway!”
