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.

On Sunday 7th August, a very young Elvis Presley walked his blue suede shoes into Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle.
Michelle Pepworth, Home Manager, said: “Alfie Pearson, aka Elvis came and blew the cobwebs away. At 12 years old he is a fantastic impersonator. All of our residents loved him, and commented that he made a very cute and handsome Elvis. Alfie wowed the residents with a number of the King’s greatest hits, getting everyone involved. Everyone was upset when Elvis eventually left the building.”

Residents from Hesslewood House Care Home in Hessle enjoyed a traditional fish and chip supper.
Michelle Pepworth, Home Manager, said: “Some of the residents went to the small seaside resort town of Hornsea, to get as bit of fresh sea air. On their way back to the minibus, they stopped for a fish and chip supper which is a very traditional way to end a trip to the seaside.
“We know it’s important that our residents have the opportunity to get out and about. Just because you move into a care home doesn’t mean that you should have to give up the things you enjoy doing. Here at Hesslewood we like people to think of us as a home from home.”

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.
