I have lived here for about 8 years and have come through a very trying time here with the threat of Covid. Due to the outstanding performance of staff and residents with the full cooperation of visitors, Covid was kept far enough from our shores! No mean feat! External suppliers: food, PPE, external maintenance, post, NHS staff and GPs etc - the C… ovid risk was minimised to a very low level. I would personally like to thank the three most senior Larchfield staff for their dedication, thoroughness and fair-handedness throughout. Naturally, entertainment did not come up to scratch due to the lockdown, so was not marked down. Our cinema room was available where feasible. Now we are operating near normal, and freedoms are reinstated. PPE is still available, eg masks where requested. The garden suffered during the spring due mainly to lockdown restrictions. Our normal helpers and plants were not able to visit us.

Well, it's been a tough few years but we and the staff have got through it with nearly zero problems. And yes I do know some homes took some bad hits from covid but we got through and I believe it's through good staff and management. It was scary at the time we did as we were told and here I am writing this. But things are great again had our first… trip out to Scarborough and loved it we had such a laugh. But it got to home time and could not wait to get to my flat. And I mean that it is my home and I can't say fairer than that. All I can hear is team leaders shouting drink more juice get some sun cream on. So things are back to normal the carers are caring and team leaders are giving out the orders (thank god)and were all one happy family again.

I came here from another care home so when I got here I kind of had an idea of what to expect. But it’s an all-new ball game. Staff do care here and try to help you as much as possible in whatever you're trying to do. Trip into town (do you need a care staff member to come, wheelchair or just for company) or whatever you want to do. It really is yo… ur choice but they still want you to have as much freedom and independence as possible. Another thing they don’t refer to my room as a bedroom they say flat which is a nice touch. The food is very good and if you want something that’s not on the menu. If it’s possible no problem or a snack if you're hungry. The rooms are nice but you are pushed to make it your room posters, photos of family or ornaments it’s up to you. Then we have quite a large lounge and in there we have a 60's style jukebox (not joking), a pool table and a cinema room. In the lounge, we also have meetings to say what we like and what we don’t like. Like I said nearly 3 years and I can’t fault it.

I cannot thank all the wonderful staff at Larchfield enough for the wonderful caring way they look after my brother especially in these covid times, when they have made sure everyone is protected from this horrible virus, in a dignified, well informed, caring and protective way. It's like one big family at Larchfield, and all the staff and resident… s love working and living there. The manager and her team of lovely carers, I cannot thank you enough for the loving, caring way you look after my brother and other residents. You are all true angels.

I've lived here for 9 years. The management are excellent. I get money every day. I go out when I want to. I like to go to Ilkley on the bus. It's nice upstairs where my room is and I can listen to my music.
