Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Joanne Fisher here at South Park Care Home in York, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

Respite care

Respite care, or short-stay care, means someone can stay at South Park Care Home whether they need residential, nursing or dementia care - for shorter periods of time: days or weeks rather than months. Respite care is also suitable for those recovering from illness or a hospital stay.

"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."
