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.

Last week we profiled some very special residents who shared their birthday with the Queen. Now we thought we’d show how our homes raised the flag to celebrate Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday.
South Park Care Home in York held a spring fair, complete with sweet stalls, a hot dog stand and homemade cakes. The residents had a fantastic time, and were even joined by members of the local community who raised a glass for Her Highness. The home held a raffle with lots of fantastic prizes. Everyone felt like a winner and the day was rounded off beautifully.
Regency Care Home in Whitefield had a slightly more serene celebration. Residents watched the Queen on TV as she made her way up the Mall – some it appeared had very similar fashion sense to Her Royal Highness – and raised a glass to her health. The residents then took a look at a Royal Scrapbook detailing how things had changed in the 63 years Queen Elizabeth has been on the throne. Later on the residents enjoyed a quiz which had a royal twist.
Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle celebrated the Queen’s birthday with a little bit of nostalgia. In 1981 the Queen opened the Humber Bridge. At that time Hesslewood was an orphanage. One of the maintenance men at the home was working at the orphanage, and alongside some of the children welcomed Queen Elizabeth II as she opened the bridge.
Church and Manor View Care Home in Doncaster had a royal visitor in the shape of team member Joanne Morley, who came dressed as the Queen. The residents and their families were also joined by local radio station TMCR who turned the home into a royal disco, at which everyone danced the afternoon away.
Up in Berwick-upon-Tweed at Hillside Lodge Care Home residents settled down and watched a film all about the Queen. After the movie the residents all donned their Union Jack hats and waved their flags as they sang ‘God Save the Queen’ quickly followed by Happy Birthday, before enjoying a well-deserved cup of tea and slice of cake.
At Croxteth Park Care Home in Liverpool the residents took to the garden for a party, all thanks to the lovely spring sunshine – and the team. The garden was decorated with bunting and the residents raised a glass to her Majesty’s health.
There was a stamp of approval at Hallgarth Care Home in Durham as resident Margaret Dawson aid tribute to Her Royal Highness by creating Queen Elizabeth II’s portrait made solely of stamps from the realm. Entertainer Colin Summer helped the afternoon go with a swing. The ‘Queen’ made time in her busy schedule to make a special guest appearance and after blowing out her birthday candles, she settled down to a slice of cake and cup of tea with the residents.
Up in Scotland the sun was shining too. At Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine everyone took to the garden for a party, complete with bunting, party hats and a BBQ. Everyone had a fantastic time and sang a special rendition of Happy Birthday for the Queen.
Meanwhile, over at Laganvale Care Home in Moira residents basked in the spring sunshine whilst having a royal BBQ before tucking into a beautiful birthday cake.
At Courtenay House Care Home in Kings Lynn the celebrations started with the team dressing up in the iconic 1920s fashion. Everyone sang the national anthem, before having another good old sing song this time focussing on classics from the 1920s. It did seem like a step back in time at the home.
Romford Grange Care Home in Romford threw a street party fit for a Queen, which included guest appearances from Soap royalty, June Brown (aka Dot Branning – Eastenders) and the Pearly Queen. The Court Care Home in Ballymoney also threw a royal birthday bash with residents wishing Queen Elizabeth II man happy returns.
Meanwhile at Marlborough Court Care Home in Thamesmead residents embraced their arty nature, creating all the decorations used to adorn the home, before settling down to a royal banquet all in honour of Her Majesty’s 90th year.
At Woodview Care Home in Lincoln they marked the Queen’s birthday by having their very own bake off competition. Cakes, brownies and flapjacks were presented to a panel of very willing residents to judge the competition. Entries were marked on both their appearance and taste and awards were given to best decorated, best taste and best overall bake. Best overall bake went to a carrot cake which was made by administrator Sarah.
Balmoral Care Home in Sheffield celebrated the royal birthday alongside some fluffy friends, as Pet’s At Home brought some rabbits for the guests to enjoy. Residents and the team dressed up and had a right royal time.
At Botham Hall Care Home in Huddersfield residents sat down to a royal tea party to commemorate Her Majesty’s birthday.
Other parties were held at other homes across the UK, including Highstone Mews Care Home, Hartwell Care Home, Ladyville Lodge Care Home and Cherry Trees Care Home. Meanwhile Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside held a party which everyone near and far attended. A resident's relative said: "the party was brilliant, the decorations was out of this world, a lot of work was put into it, and the food was great. The people were amazing, everybody was having fun and Norman who played the music was very good to the residents.”
Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster welcomed the community and the all of the royal family, including Princes William and Harry to their royal tea party, which then turned into a disco. Everyone had a fun afternoon.
In Nottinghamshire, at the Old Vicarage Care Home, everyone nominated resident Audrey to be Queen for the day - complete with tiara and pearls. The 'Singing Major' came in to entertain everyone, and got them all singing and dancing. Everyone then settled down with a glass of fizz and slice of cake - cut by Queen Audrey - to round off the day.
Everyone at Four Seasons wishes Her Majesty many happy returns.

Four residents from Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle, have been limbering up for a bowling competition. The competition takes place on Wednesday 20th April and sees residents compete against other homes in the area.
Michelle Pepworth, Home Manager, said: “The residents here have really embraced their competitive edge. I do worry about their opponents at the competition because we do have some amazing bowlers here at Hesslewood. I want to wish our team the best of luck, we’ve got everything crossed for you.”
Elsewhere in the home, the residents have treated themselves to a new Spring wardrobe to welcome in the warmer weather. After their busy shopping trip, the residents settled down to a dominoes tea party to indulge in some much needed relaxation.
There was a new activity at Hesslewood last week. The home introduced drum therapy. The residents had a fantastic time and there were some decipherable tunes amongst the chaos.
