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.

Shauna-rooney-staff-nurse

13 Apr 2015

Shauna Rooney, a Staff Nurse at Rush Hall Care Home in Limavady, has been shortlisted for the 2015 national Nursing Standard Nurse Awards.

Qualifying as a nurse only two years ago, Shauna was nominated for the award by Gary Cousins, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse for Four Seasons Health Care Northern Ireland, after implementing a successful Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) pilot programme in the home. Shauna also helped other staff members to develop their knowledge of IPC and understand how the theory could be best applied in clinical practice.

Avoiding the spread of infections is important, particularly within a care home environment, as older people tend to have a weaker immune system. Additionally care homes often provide care for residents who may be living with a cognitive impairment and therefore are not as aware of the risk of infection. As a result, staff need to be able to help with hygiene measures to avoid preventable illness.

Gary said, “We are delighted that Shauna is a finalist for the 2015 Nursing Standard Nurse Awards. Her dedication to developing her fellow staff members’ understanding of best IPC care meant that the pilot programme was a resounding success, and we wish her the best of luck.”

The Nursing Standard Nurse Awards recognise nursing professionals across the UK who have demonstrated clinical excellence and whose innovations have helped to improve the quality of patient care. Finalists from each category will attend the award ceremony on 1st May at The Savoy Hotel in London, and all winners will be considered for the overall award, RCN Nurse of the Year 2015.

The Mayor of Wokingham presented five staff members at Murdoch House in Berkshire with a prestigious award to recognise their long service to the home.

If you add together all the years, including two 20-year awards, the five staff members have 98 years’ service in total. Senior Care Assistants, Susan Galsworthy and Vicky Chapman came to work at Murdoch House straight from school, aged 16. They have 41 years’ service between them. Senior Care Assistant, Janet Nugent has been with us for 24 years; Deputy Manager, Marie Hughes for 17 years and Housekeeper, Wendy Chapman has worked for us for 16 years.

Home Manager, Christine Tyrrell said, “We are delighted to be celebrating a total of 98 years of loyal service to Murdoch House. They have all demonstrated their dedication and loyalty to the home and our residents year after year. I’m looking forward to many more years of working with each and every one of them!”

Next year, Home Manager, Christine will be celebrating her 10 years at Murdoch along with another three members of staff, taking the long service total up to 138!

Peacock_tail

18 Mar 2015

Residents, staff and guests at Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle have taken part in a fundraising event to raise awareness for Dementia UK.

The home organized a ‘Time for a Cuppa!’ day and held a cake sale serving many homemade treats including scones and cream, lemon cheesecake and flap jacks, to show support for Dementia UK and the Admiral Nurses who work closely with those experiencing dementia.

Hesslewood’s very own male peacock was also out for the occasion, showing off his new feathers for everyone who was sat watching him from the dining room.

Home Manager, Michelle Pepworth said: “This is a great event to be involved in and we were delighted to be part of it and help raise so much money for such a good cause. Many elderly people are living with dementia, including here at Hesslewood House, so to support such an important event has been great.”
