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.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”
