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.
Life at Clova House Care Home

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.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

The autumnal weather has slowly started to creep in, but that hasn’t stopped residents at Clova House Care Home in Ripon toasting a fond farewell to the lovely British Summer.
Billy Partridge, Home Manager, told us: “The residents went and enjoyed a bit of relaxation time in the sunshine with some lovely cakes and cocktails. It was really nice to see them enjoy themselves. After all who doesn’t enjoy a lovely drink in the sunshine?”

Lorna Drummond (Senior Care Assistant), Amber Brooks (Personal Activities Leader), Amanda Atkins (Care Assistant) and Shannan Pruden (Senior Care Assistant) took part in the Leeds Big Fun run, a 5km run around Roundhay Park on Saturday 6th August 2016, raising money for special resident experiences for those in their care.
Kirsty Collins, Home Manager of Clova House Care Home in Ripon, said: “We are all very proud of the ladies. They kept each other motivated all the way round. Some of the residents even went to the finish line to cheer them on. I also want to thank everyone for their kind donations. The money will help us to provide special experiences for our residents based on their likes and favourite things.”
