We know how important mealtimes are and like them to be a sociable and enjoyable part of the day. Our experienced Chef Managers attend Anchor's Cater Craft training course which enables them to understand the nutritional requirements of elderly people, and to ensure all meals are prepared from fresh, seasonal ingredients.
We serve tasty, wholesome, good food and our menus change regularly with a daily choice available. We also cater for residents with special dietary needs and create a “dining atmosphere” by decorating these areas in colours that stimulate the appetite and create ambience.
Our staff respect individual preferences. All these factors boost residents' appetites and enable them to enjoy their meals, which is essential in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
Our care home organises and arranges a variety of opportunities for our residents to enjoy daily activities in our home and in the local community.
We work in partnership with the National Association for Providers of Activities for Older People (NAPA) and encourage activities that enhance our resident's lifestyle, health and wellbeing.
Residents preferred activities, interests and abilities are discussed when they move in and an agreed plan ensures that these requests are fulfilled (wherever possible). Our resident's suggestions for activities also help shape the planning process.
We organise supervised day trips to leisure facilities and places of interest as well as social events in the home, including themed restaurant evenings, arts and crafts, quizzes and regular entertainers.
At Wharfeside, our caring and attentive staff work with our residents and their loved ones to create a detailed care plan, which ensures our resident's individual health and care needs are met.
We know how important it is to care for our residents with the dignity and respect they deserve and this is at the heart of what we do at Wharfeside care home.
Our commitment to advanced dementia training for our staff has helped the Department of Health pass its goal of 3,000 Dignity Champions nationwide.

- A choice of 3 GP surgeries, who will visit on request
