Interest was high as the new Horsforth Manor Care Home officially opened its doors. The unveiling of the 55-bedroom home, on Manor Way, Horsforth, formed the centrepiece of two open days, when members of the community and prospective residents were invited to view its luxurious facilities.
Owners of Yorkare Homes were delighted by the number of people who took up the invitation, which saw a steady stream of visitors on both Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16 2023.
Yorkare’s Nicola Anderson said: “It was an overwhelming response, with lots of people coming to see what Horsforth Manor Care Home has to offer, whether as potential residents or simply because they were interested to see what it was like after watching the building work.
“There was a lovely community feel to the whole event and people were genuinely keen to know all about the home. I am sure that the home will be a fabulous asset to Horsforth and the surrounding areas. It’s been amazing to see the progress that has been made in creating fabulous communal areas as well as see the beautifully appointed rooms for residents.”
Like every home in the growing Yorkare portfolio, Horsforth Manor provides residential and specialist dementia care for both long and short stays. With beautiful, landscaped gardens, a bowling green, and providing opportunities for residents to lead an active and sociable lifestyle. The spacious bedrooms all have their own wet room while those on the ground floor have doors to their own patio.
However, where Yorkare homes really stand out from the crowd is their communal facilities: not just the high-specification lounge and dining areas but an in-house bar, a full beauty salon and hairdressing room, and a cinema – all of which are provided at Horsforth Manor.
Emma Littlewood the registered manager for Horsforth Manor added, “Having been a Registered Manager for other care settings for the last 15 years, I joined Yorkare in February this year and I am not only excited but proud to be a part of the Yorkare Family Business and in my eyes I truly believe they have produced an outstanding Care Home Environment – to me “The Savoy of Care Homes” I am so pleased that we have now opened our Doors to Horsforth Manor Care Home, The feedback that we have received from our Open days was nothing but positive and I am now excited to Welcome New residents into the home for myself and dedicated staff team to Care for and Nurture with the highest compassion and level of person-centered care”.
As a family-run company with more than 30 years’ of experience, Yorkare’s aim is to provide the highest quality of care in luxurious surroundings.
