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

A carer and a resident

I am pleased with all aspects of Hesslewood. I changed stuff because although its good its always understaffed.

June Helsitt, Wife of Resident/Service User at Hesslewood House Care Home

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.

Fay Gibson, Resident / Service User at Hesslewood House Care Home

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.

Karen Brooks, Niece of Resident/Service User at Hesslewood House Care Home

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.

Michele Jennings, Daughter of Resident/Service User at Hesslewood House Care Home

everything is brilliant on the unit and I couldn't ask for better care for my mum.

Three funds managed by County Durham Community Foundation will allow the Vane Tempest Bowling Club to replace their out-dated kitchen and enable them to provide in-house cooking for their social events.

The William Leech Fund, Four Seasons Healthcare Fund and Durham AAP Fund, all contributed to the kitchen refurbishment grant of £2,664 which was much-needed as the kitchen no longer complied with health and safety standards.

Established in 1951 and based in Gilesgate, members of the bowling club are mostly from the local community. It provides member with social and competitive bowling and it is a member of Bowls England and Bowls Durham. Members use bowling as a way to keep fit and active, maintain mental well-being and independence. The social side of meeting with similar minded friends is just as important as playing bowls.

The new kitchen will not only provide a facility for social events but will hopefully attract new members and an additional income stream.

Richard Leech, fund holder of the William Leech Fund, who visited the bowling club with Sandra Brown, Regional Manager of Four Seasons Healthcare Fund, commented: “It’s great to see the Club providing these facilities for older people to keep them active and foster new friendships. We have been able to help them in a fairly modest way through our fund and their request was topped up by other funds held by the Community Foundation. They offer an important service to their bowling members and we are delighted to support them.”

Sandra Brown, Regional Manager, added: “This grant fits so well with Four Seasons Healthcare corporate social responsibility. Our purpose is all about supporting older people through our care homes and so it was perfect that we could add to the grant to refurbish the bowling club kitchen - an essential facility for the Club.”

Sheila Chapman, fund manager at County Durham Community Foundation added: “Although our grants are fairly small, they are often vital to grassroots organisations throughout our area of benefit. The Vane Tempest Bowling Club provides such an important resource for local people and we are delighted that these funders have chosen to make this award.”

Ken Simpson, chairman of the Vane Tempest Bowling Club said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant and be able to fit a new kitchen which will mean we can increase our offer to members and potentially attract new ones. Unfortunately the old kitchen was no longer fit for purpose and the refurbishment afforded by these grants mean that we now comply with current health and safety regulations. It’s also great to meet the funders and have them visit our Club.

When people think of care homes, they usually think of dull and boring places where not much happens.

At Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle this is not the case.

Michelle Pepworth, Care Home Home Manager, explains: “Here at Hesslewood House we care for all of our residents, and understand that the last thing they want is to sit around bored doing nothing. So here we have a very active activities calendar, which provides the residents with special resident experiences on a regular basis.

“However, we don’t just help our residents. We like to be hands on in the local community and help local charities where we can. The residents and team here are all very passionate and like to get involved in local fundraising activities.”

Below is a sample of some of the activities Hesslewood House Care Home have been getting involved in since the start of the year.

On World Chocolate Day the White Rabbit Chocolate shop come in from Beverley. They gave the residents the history of chocolate and gave them all little tasters. The chocolate went down a treat and the residents, their relatives and the team all bought a number of little chocolatey gifts.

On the 26th February there was a Bake Off style event at the home. The aim was to raise as much money as possible nfor the charity ‘Cash for Kids’ to help disadvantaged children. The event was a success and a substantial amount of money was raised for the charity.

On the 1st of May the staff and resident wore red lipstick to raise awareness of Dementia raising just short of £50 for the cause.

Michelle Pepworth added: “Hesslewood House would be nothing without the team driving it forward. That’s why I think it’s important to recognise everyone who’s been here for a long period of time, consistently helping us to deliver more and more. We will continue to deliver special experiences for everyone.“

Recently, the home hosted an event which saw 11 team members commended for their long service. The team have a vast amount of experience between them, with the longest serving member working for the organisation for 28 years!

Whoever thought living in a care home would be a sedate affair couldn’t be more wrong.

The team and residents at Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle have been really busy taking part in a number of competitions.

The first competition saw the team from the care home take on the Bubble Rush challenge, in the hopes of raising money for St Andrew’s Hospice.

Michelle Pepworth, Home Manager, explained: “The day of the Bubble Rush event was a lovely day. We took some of the residents down to the park to cheer the team on. When the team had finished running, they were greeted by the residents who were eating fish and chips, which proved to be a temptation for the team. I’m really proud of the guys that took part in the event, as they raised over £400 for the Hospice. Well done team Hesslewood House!”

Not content with the team outdoing them, later on in the week the residents took part in the East Riding Bocci Bowling Competition. The residents had their game faces on and made it all the way through to the semi-finals before losing out at the last minute.

Michelle Pepworth added: “The bowling team did great. They narrowly missed out on a place in the finals. Since returning to the home the residents have got a renewed vigour for bowling and they have been practicing whenever they have a moment to prepare for next year’s competition.”
