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.

Say hello to the newest member of the Hesslewood House Care Home team in Hessle, Luna the cat.
Kate Wilson, Home Manager, said: “Luna is the newest member of our team, and has made herself right at home since joining us. She came in one stormy night and sheltered from the weather in one of our units. She is so loving and spends most of the day sat on the resident’s knees having cuddles. A member of the care team donated a large cushion bed for Luna, and it’s definitely a hit with her.”

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”
