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.

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.
