Hemsworth care home is a really lovely place, my dad gets the best care possible, the place is very homely, clean and the staff are lovely everyone is very friendly.
I placed mum in EMI residential unit and from start to finish it has been a professional rewarding choice of home. Home manager, dementia unit manager and staff have been excellent meeting every need of the complexity of the vascular dementia. Dementia friendly, hospitality to visitors is exceptional. Outstanding communication between management and Family members; nothing is too much. First two weeks after admission thorough monitoring and checks are in place: fluid charts, food charts, sleeps charts, behavior monitoring. Very essential information about your relative that helps understanding the dementia status and situation. Highly recommended.

Hemsworth Park Care Home in Pontefract has been accredited for a pioneering dementia care approach.
The care team at Hemsworth Park Care Home is celebrating being accredited for a radically different approach of care for people living with dementia.
The Dementia Care Framework is a unique step forward in the personalisation of care for people living with dementia. The care team uses exclusive purpose-designed technology to help build and continuously update a picture of each resident’s individual experience of their care and their physical, psychological and emotional well-being, so that their care can be adjusted to their changing needs.
The pioneering home is part of Four Seasons Health Care which spent two years developing and testing the new approach. The home hosted an event for care commissioners, other health and social care professionals and relatives to introduce the Dementia Care Framework to them on Wednesday 14th June 2017.
Sam Jacob, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the East of England said: “This is next generation dementia care to make life better for the person with dementia and we are excited to offer it. A vital part of the Framework is the bespoke support and training the team throughout the home receives with additional support and training for those, working within our dementia services. This goes beyond the practicalities of caring for someone with dementia and through simulation gives them a deeper understanding of what it is like to live with dementia.”
At the heart of the Dementia Care Framework is a personal care review process which is continuously updated electronically by care staff to give a comprehensive and current picture of each resident.
Thought to be the first of its type worldwide, it is based on 320 recognised standards, including NICE Guidelines (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) and Alzheimer’s Society best practice guidance. It replaces paper-based audits that are slow and almost always behind the changing care needs of the person.
The resident and family charters were developed in consultation with residents, family members, health and social care professionals and care teams, taking account of over 400 comments.
The resident charter sets out their rights, the standards of care they can expect and commitment to provide for their personal needs and preferences.
The family charter, sets out the support that they can expect to receive and how they can input to planning their relative’s care.
Only when a home achieves key standards within the Dementia Care Framework does it receive Four Seasons Accreditation for the quality of its dementia care.
