Welcome to Yatton Hall Care Home

We're located on Yatton High Street, close to the village shops and facilities, with easy access to the station for a 20-minute train ride to Weston-super-Mare.
Our light, spacious home has three floors, served by a lift, with even, level access throughout. On each floor are communal lounges, each offering a different atmosphere for residents to choose from; and dining areas where residents come to eat and meet.
There's a secure garden with ample seating, tables and wheelchair space. For residents who smoke there's a covered area.
We love the people who live here to bring in photos and ornaments to personalise their rooms. Each room has a profiling bed and telephone socket, as well as great safety features.

After several months in hospital, my step mother had given up the will to live. She would not eat, drink or get out of bed. She had to be discharged from hospital and went to Yatton Hall Care Home. When she first arrived, I thought she would live for a few weeks at most. When I phoned today to see how she was, the Nurse told me she had eaten a good breakfast and was dressed and in the communal lounge playing games with the other residents. This is all due to the total care, dedication and patience of the nursing staff, and however busy they are (and believe me they always are extremely busy), they take the time to bring me up to date with her progress. The Management staff when I first went to view Yatton Hall, were so helpful and friendly and assured me that my step mother would be well looked after. I travel abroad a lot with my business and I have no worries at all that my step mother is being cared for. I visited several homes before going to see Yatton Hall and not one of them comes up to the standard of care and dedication that Yatton Hall offers. Also, high up on my priority list was smell. Yatton Hall has a very pleasant smell no matter what time of day or night you arrive. That cannot be said of the other homes I visited. I would definitely recommend Yatton Hall to anyone about to place a loved one in a Home. 100% perfect.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Everyone at Yatton Hall felt a sense of awe as an air of magic and wonderment descended over the Yatton based Care Home.
A local magician came in and wowed the residents with a variety of tricks, including the traditional pulling a rabbit out of a hat. Once the trickery was out of the way, the magician then made a variety of models out of balloons, with the residents coming up with weird and wonderful requests.
Lisa Brain, Home Manager, said: “The residents really enjoyed watching the magic up close and personal. The one trick that did have everyone enthralled was when the magician pulled Snowy a white rabbit out of his hat. Snowy nearly did another disappearing act, with one of our residents trying to sneak him off to their bedroom, but thankfully Snowy was returned back to the hat.
“When the balloon models started, the residents asked for normal things first, such as flowers and a poodle. However, it got a little more difficult when one resident asked for a helicopter, which the magician delivered. It really was a lovely day.”

A special surprise took place at Yatton Hall Care Home in Somerset last week, when a resident’s grandson visited the home with his Jazz band.
Lisa Brain, Home Manager, said: “The band was really good. The set they played was fantastic. It was a special day because it was the first time Alan had heard his grandson play. It truly was a beautiful moment to behold, Alan couldn’t hide how proud he was.”
Once the band had finished their set, they took the time to speak to the residents and swap stories with them. Another resident presented the drummer of the band with some drumsticks she had in her room, which she had acquired from Bernard ‘Buddy’ Rich. The resident explained to the drummer that Buddy Rich was a famous American Jazz drummer who was known for his impossible drum solos.
Lisa Brain added: “You could clearly see that the young drummer was extremely humbled by the gift. These drumsticks meant a lot to our resident, but I feel she felt it was time that someone else helped them to continue Buddy’s legacy. I want to thank the band for coming into the home. We look forward to welcoming you back.”
