Living in an Anchor care home you can be confident that a single fee covers the cost of your personally tailored 24 hour care and support, all utility bills and meals as well as a fantastic range of daily activities.

Care Home Manager
As a registered nurse and an experienced manager of care services, I am very proud of the luxury accommodation and care that Wetherby Manor offers. Our accommodation standards and features are superior in so many ways but, most importantly, I believe we have built a team to deliver a very special and unique standard of person-centred care and support to anyone who chooses to make Wetherby Manor their new home. I know how big a decision a move to care can be, which is why myself and the team at Wetherby Manor are here every step of the way. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have.
I am a Mum to three and have worked at Wetherby Manor since it opened in 2013. I started as a Care Assistant, then I was a Senior Team Leader and now I am an Activities Co-ordinator. I am very passionate about creating options for our residents and ensuring their lives are enhanced by the ideas and events that happen in Wetherby Manor. Sadly I experienced a time in my life where a family member needed support which was never given. This experience motivates me to give my all to help others in any way I can. I love spending time with the residents and making a difference.
A warm and safe welcome
Safety as priority
We continue to welcome new residents to our home safely. We have received our vaccinations, regularly test residents and colleagues, and are well equipped with high-quality personal protective equipment (PPE).
Take a tour
In person show rounds are available for you and your loved-one to tour our home and meet the team, subject to testing and safety guidelines. Simply make an enquiry and we’ll arrange your visit.
Enjoy a range of safe visiting options for loved-ones, including regular contact from visitors supported by testing, plus outdoor and indoor visits with a screen.
To start your enquiry simply click 'Enquiry now' and call us or complete an enquiry form.
We’ll provide you with full details of the home, along with any other information you’d like such as sample menus and activity schedules.
Taking a tour
Whether you’re looking to stay with us permanently, or for a short break, we’re delighted that we can now invite you to take a show round of the home in person, subject to testing and safety guidelines. Simply book a tour with the home manager once you’ve made your enquiry.
We can also provide a virtual show round if you’d prefer. Either way, we’re keen to show you what daily life is like here and for you to meet our friendly team.
If you decide following your visit that you or your loved one would like to move into the home we’ll organise an assessment either face to face – with PPE and socially distanced – or conducted virtually to make sure we can meet all of your care needs.
Ensuring residents’ safety and wellbeing is our absolute priority.
Changes to government guidance mean that if you or your loved one are moving in from the community (for example, your home) and are fully vaccinated, you won’t need to self-isolate on arrival, subject to meeting certain criteria. If you're moving in from hospital or another care setting, you’ll receive a dedicated package of one-to-one activities and support, alongside regular visits from family and friends, during any period of self-isolation required following an individual review.
Our friendly team will discuss every area of moving-in with you in detail to make sure you and your loved-one know exactly what to expect and feel confident, safe and welcomed when coming to live with us.
We understand how important visits are for everyone and are pleased that government restrictions on nominated visitors have been removed and we can welcome regular visits from family and friends, supported by PPE and testing.
Residents can also nominate an Essential Care Giver who is able to visit more frequently and for longer, while following the same testing and PPE safety measures as our care teams.
In addition, our homes continue to offer visits to other friends or family members, with COVID-safe arrangements in place for indoor and outdoor visiting. We’ve also invested significantly in technology – such as Skype and FaceTime– so you can stay in regular touch.
Of course, visiting remains subject to changes in government guidance and local health protection restrictions in response to transmission rates and variants of concern. We will always permit visits in exceptional circumstances.
Each of our homes is different and you’ll have the opportunity to speak directly to the Manager of the care home you’re interested in.
Our homes were among the first in the country to take part in the government’s care home testing programme in Summer 2020 – and we’ve been regularly testing colleagues and residents since.
With residents’ safety and wellbeing our absolute priority, we want to assure you that we’re doing everything possible to prevent coronavirus entering our homes.
Vaccinations have been offered to all residents and colleagues.
And we’re making sure anyone coming to work in any of our care homes after 11 November is fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 (unless exempt for medical reasons) - in accordance with government requirements.
Where required, all new residents are prioritised for a vaccination on move-in.
We are well equipped and have good stocks of high-quality personal protective equipment (PPE) which complies with government requirements.
Our in-house team are highly trained and experienced in ensuring a clean and safe environment and committed to protecting everyone living and working in our home through the consistent use of infection control measures. These measures include regular hand washing, social distancing, putting on clean uniforms upon arrival and the proper use of appropriate PPE.
As members of the British Institute of Cleaning Science (BICSc), we take cleaning and cleanliness extremely seriously. We use the highest-quality products and are following an enhanced programme of cleaning.
We’re keeping life as normal as possible so residents feel safe, secure, and happy.
Which means your loved one can expect great fresh food, a wealth of activities and friendly company.

A review from the daughter of a Wetherby Manor resident
“Mummy has now been in Wetherby Manor for three years. For the past 14 months, she has been on 'Chester's' floor as she required a greater level of care with the onset of dementia and mobility problems. I cannot fault the care and support Mummy receives and in these very difficult times when I cannot visit Mum, I know she is safe, very well protected and cared for by professional and caring staff.”Read more reviews on www.carehome.co.uk
