Welcome to Clova House Care Home
You'll find Clova House in Ripon, North Yorkshire, famous for its cathedral, cenotaph, horn blower, and clock tower, and close to Fountains Abbey.
Here our dedicated team offers 24-hour residential care to suit individual need, ranging from permanent residential care to shorter respite or intermediate care.
Ours is a well equipped, attractive and carefully converted property. It stands in its own grounds with views over our landscaped gardens.
There's a comfortable lounge area, a TV lounge area with large bay windows, a lounge area at the rear, and a further lounge area on the first floor.
We also have a welcoming ground-floor dining room, and a conservatory leading to the garden area where residents can take in the fresh air, or help with planting or potting.
We have single, single en-suite and double en-suite bedrooms with excellent garden views. All rooms have TV points and great safety systems.
We love residents to personalise these spaces and to choose their own colour schemes to make them feel more homely.

The outstanding factor which warrants the highest commendation at this home is the quality of the staff. They genuinely care for the residents. A few months ago, my mother who has been resident at Clova for six years was in hospital for three weeks, suffering from pneumonia. Members of the staff on their own initiative, at their own expense and in their own time bought her flowers and visited her in hospital, even though the hospital is over twelve miles from Clova House. On my mother's discharge from hospital they went out of their way to welcome her back. My mother is 94 suffers from vascular dementia and her mood can switch from 'sweet old lady' to 'wild and aggressive' within seconds. I am sure she is not easy to deal with, but in the six years she has been resident at Clova House she has experienced only loving care and consideration. The home has an excellent team superbly led by an experienced manager and deputy. If I were to choose an apt motto for Clova House it would be 'Care, Compassion, Competence.'
Mother has been in the home some seven years, in all the time there the people running the home and everyone involved could not have been more caring and attentive. They have looked after her with all the love and care anyone could wish for. I am very pleased with everything that has been done no complaints whatsoever.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Residents at Clova House Care Home in Ripon enjoyed a bit of baking last week as they made and decorated some cakes to enjoy as their afternoon snack.
Kirsty Collins, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed themselves. They spent the time weighing out ingredients, mixing it all together before placing it into cupcake paper Some of the residents hadn’t baked for many years, and were thrilled to be involved. Everyone really enjoyed tucking into the labours of their work, although there weren’t many takers on cleaning the kitchen afterwards.”
