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

A carer and a resident

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.'

Tony Morris, Son of Resident/Service User at Clova House Care Home

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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.

The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.

Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.

Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.

Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.

Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.

Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.

While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”

If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

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.”
