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.

Four Seasons Health Care has introduced Wi-Fi into all of its care homes and residents have been taking advantage of the opportunities that internet access provides. They have readily adapted to using the technology to keep in touch more frequently with relatives or friends who live far away.

Violet Amies at The Maltings Care Home in Fakenham said: “Having Wi-Fi in the home means that my daughter and I can sit together and use Skype to talk to my other daughter who lives in the United States, which is much easier than trying to arrange a telephone call. It’s great to be able to hear her news more regularly and to be able to see each other and share photos online.”

At Cossins House Care Home in Cobham a resident who used to be a ballet dancer and is now living with dementia, regularly watches ballet videos online. This helps to stimulate positive memories, as well as encouraging her to reminisce about her earlier experiences with other residents and staff members. Many residents are also shopping for books and other small items online in addition to adding to their Kindle libraries.

Alistair How, Chief Operating Officer of Four Seasons, the UK’s leading care homes operator, said: “It has been a significant investment to upgrade our IT systems and install Wi-Fi in all of our care homes, but it is one that we consider to be very worthwhile. It has enhanced our residents’ enjoyment of life in their home. They are able to connect more frequently via social media services and email and they can also keep up to date with their personal interests more readily, as well as maintaining their independence by shopping online.”

Hesslewood House had a visit from some unusual animals when ZooLab came in to provide animal therapy. The animals that visited the home included a Madagascan hedgehog, a tarantula, an Australian blue tongue lizard, an orange corn snake, a bearded dragon and a Vietnamese blue tree frog. Residents and staff had the chance to learn about the animals and to handle them.

ZooLab has been carrying out animal handling workshops and animal therapy sessions across the UK since 1995. Animal assisted therapy is used as an occupational therapy tool within psychology and has been shown to reduce both anxiety and blood pressure.

The interaction and relationship between people and animals has also been shown to reduce stress and promote wellbeing, increase socialisation, improve self-esteem and confidence, and promote quality of life.

Home Manager Michelle Pepworth said, ‘The residents really enjoyed listening to the information about each animal and where they came from, they all had the chance to hold and touch the animals, they were very brave!’

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.”
