Donald, The Gravers Care Home
Going back 24+ years to when I first came to ‘The Gravers’ I like to remember simple things, like smoking cigarettes and a pipe in the front room where the big television set was. New smoke alarms, new fire and a new smoking policy has since been adopted. I also like to remember some of the holidays we have shared, go look to that time, The ‘St Lucia Hotel’ Majorca, and Paris ‘Disneyland’ plus trips to Scotland and various East Coast destinations, they have made for some fond memories. New residents as well as the loss of old ones and changes to the building have made for a positive changing scene.
Rose, The Gravers Care Home
I came to live at ‘The Gravers’ and they have helped me a lot. We go to a place called ‘The Hut’, I like to do arts and crafts. They are friendly staff and there is always someone who can help when you need help. We go on holiday twice a year, we usually go to Spain and we have recently been to Centre Parks. The staff help me a lot with my illness and they will also help you to find a job if you want to work, I work as a volunteer at a café every Monday and Tuesday.
Beverley, The Gravers Care Home
The Gravers home is quite simply wonderful, it has helped me to become a better person and allowed me to be more independent. The Gravers provides a safe environment for all the residents and ensures that all needs are met according to the strength of each individual. Everyone is treated as an individual person, this is a safe and secure home where residents know and feel they are looked after. All the staff and owners are fantastic and work their hardest, it would be extremely hard to ask for anything more.
Tim, Christmas Lodge Care Home
Having visited a considerable number of residential homes in Yorkshire with my family before choosing a home to go to, we collectively decided that Christmas Lodge offered the best accommodation and the best facilities. It is excellently placed for a wide range of important facilities such as hospitals, doctors and dentists, and has a staff team that are very friendly, amenable and professional.
Tony, Christmas Lodge Care Home
I really enjoy the food at Christmas Lodge, the staff are alright with me and help me with everything I need. I don’t want to move on anywhere else. My room is very nice, I keep it tidy and like playing music and watching films. I go to “the Hut” on Wednesdays and Fridays which is nice, and on a Sunday I go to church and play drums there. I have some good friends at Christmas Lodge.
