Welcome to South Park Care Home
Here in historic York, our South Park Care Home is a delightful place to live, whether residents are in need of long-term palliative care or short-term respite care on our dementia unit.
We are especially trained in caring for those living with dementia. Our unique approach is based on understanding dementia form the resident’s perspective, enabling us to deliver Special Resident Experiences and consistently good care everywhere.
Our newly refurbished care home features lovely, bright living areas and lounges which are very well furnished - perfect for spending the afternoon playing board games or reading a book.
We also have our own bar for residents and their families, with afternoon quizzes and music. Or residents can enjoy our newly landscaped gardens with fruit and colourful plants.
At South Park Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at South Park Care Home
We plan a programme of activities based on residents' wishes. These include in-house crafts, baking, games, visiting entertainers and one-to-one sessions.
Regular outings include trips to local shops, community events and restaurants/pubs for meals, and we encourage families to visit as often as they wish and get involved with parties and social gatherings.
The local priest visits on a regular basis, and other visiting clergy can be arranged according to personal preferences.
Mam has got to get used to it, as it is a big change, as used to do a full house of family and funny about what she eats. But you can talk to all staff and they will go out of their way to help you. They just have to know her way and they are all good with her. Cant get any more help off the staff as they are all good with what you ask.

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 South Park Care Home in York have enjoyed some time in the kitchen this week baking some delicious tarts whilst enjoying some fruity smoothies.
Joanne Fisher, Home Manager, said: “It’s important for the residents to be able to do day to day activities that they would usually do if they were living independently in their own homes. Baking is just one of these activities that help promote independence and well-being. The tarts were beautiful, and only crumbs were left on the plate.”

Residents at South Park Care Home in York welcomed two furry friends to their fur-ever home last week.
The two newest residents are a rabbit and guinea pig for the residents to look after.
Joanne Fisher, Home Manager, said: “We regular have animals and other creatures that visit the home as part of Pet Therapy, which goes down a real treat with the residents. However, we thought it was time to get our very own South Park pets. Many of our residents used to have pets before they came to us, and this is a nice way for them to have them whilst they live here. Everyone have made our little fur babies very welcome in their first few days here.”
