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.

As the Royal College of Nursing prepares to celebrate their 100th Birthday, they have launched a photography competition in collaboration with the Royal Photographic Society with the aim to show a record of nursing over 100 years.
Two photographs have been submitted for the competition by our Northern Ireland team which can be seen above.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director NI, explains “The first image in the garden was decided on after discussing the difficulties with nurse recruitment. We decided to take a novel approach by supporting the Home Managers and Practice Support Manager to ‘grow their own’ nurses".
“The second image is all about ‘It was not like that in our day’. Growing up our mums talked fondly of nursing and always told us “it wasn’t like that in our day”. Wanting to prove them wrong we decided to follow in their footsteps and now we have a combined total of 122 years’ service to the nursing profession".
"We have to explain new world of nursing – Gary, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse, shows his mum modern clinical technology. Rebecca, who is about to commence Adult Nursing with the University of Brighton, demonstrates the ways fob watches have moved with the times and can still be fashionable. Meanwhile Leah models for her mum that nurses can wear trousers”.
The competition is open to RCN members and the public. The collection will be added to the RCN archive with 50 images shortlisted to form an exhibition which will be loaned to various places across the UK.
Entries so far can be seen here.
The competition will close for entries 29th February.

Over the past 4 years, Hesslewood House has arranged a Summer Fun Day in which all the Four Seasons Health Care local homes join together and compete in various games and competitions to win prizes for their homes. This year the theme was ‘Countries around the World’. Each of the homes went to town with their costumes. Residents, relatives and friends were all invited to come and join the fun day which turned out to be a great day for all.
There were 7 homes that took part in the day; Hesslewood House as China, Beech Tree as France, Broadacres as India, Randolph House as Australia, Brimington as Egypt, Beech House as Hawaii and Layden Court as Mexico. As part of this, both staff and residents competed to have the best costumes, best themed cake, best decorated wheelchair and best decorated walking frame. Each entry was fantastic; all the homes put a great amount of effort into their decorations and costumes.
Alongside the theme competitions, the staff were also challenging one another in various games and races throughout the day. The teams were able to take part in an obstacle course, egg and spoon races, skipping races, relays and 3 legged races which were great entertainment for everyone involved. There was also hook a duck and a raffle to take part in which helped raised funds for the next Summer Fun Day. There was live entertainment by a local musician as well as a wide selection of food and cakes for everyone to enjoy.
The winners all won prizes to use at their homes such as a barbeque, gardening equipment and a water feature. Randolph won the races and best costume, Beech Tree won best walking frame, Hesslewood won best cake and Brimington won best wheelchair.
Jayne Clark, Regional Manager, said “What a fabulous day our region had! It was a really well organised event that went without a hitch. As you can see from the photos, everyone really enjoyed taking part in the races and competitions. The effort put in to the costumes and decorations by each home was tremendous. We are all looking forward to doing it all again next year, plans are already underway!”

It was a busy day at Hesslewood House for Care Home Open Day. Residents, families and visitors enjoyed a coffee morning followed by a staff performance of Cinderella in the afternoon. Staff wrote and performed the show that made their audience laugh from start to finish.
Michelle Pepworth, Manager at the home, said: “We always love welcoming visitors and it was great that so many people came along to celebrate the day with us. We see Care Home Open Day as a way of showing people what life is like in a care home, and to see behind the doors for themselves. “
Care Home Open Day is celebrated by care homes across the country. It aims to encourage stronger relationships between care homes and the local community. It also provides a chance for people to come and
see what life inside a home is really like and get to know some of the fascinating people who live there.
