Safe Visits

Welcome to West Ridings Residential and Nursing Home, where we care for Residents across five specialist homes on our site. Our Care Home in Wakefield has expert teams to look after Residents with a wide range of different needs. No matter what type of care they require, all Residents are cared for by compassionate care professionals, dedicated to their wellbeing.

In our busy, warm individual Houses, Residents are supported to live the life they choose. We aim to take care of more than just clinical needs, as Residents settle into our friendly community and make new friends. As well as residential care, we also provide nursing care and dementia nursing care on-site. One of the unique benefits of living at West Ridings is that if care needs change, we can provide continuity of care at the Home to ensure they get the best support and care for their specific needs.

West Ridings is situated just five minutes from Outwood train station which has routes to Leeds, Barnsley, Sheffield and Doncaster. We’re also easily accessible from the M1 and M62 if you come by car. All the amenities of Outwood are on our doorstep, and the home is close to Pinderfields General Hospital.

Person-centred care

As part of this vibrant community, we’re fortunate to have excellent working relationships with three GP surgeries, the Community Nurses, the community mental health team, speech and language therapists, and occupational therapists too.

Working with these multi-discipline professionals, we can provide exceptional, person-centred care. All Residents have an initial assessment to identify their specific care needs and to discover how we can support them in living the life they choose and we build-in Resident preferences and decisions into their bespoke, person-centred support plan. We monitor and update this with each Resident and their loved ones on an ongoing basis.

Living life to the full

The Activity team at West Ridings works hard to provide Residents with plenty of opportunities to socialise and participate in activities. From our regular House tea dances to fun-filled games, from visits by local school children to chair-based exercises, there’s always something going on.

We also host special events like our Summer and Christmas fayres and in 2020 we even had a special concert from Ray Lewis, lead singer of The Drifters at our Care Home in Wakefield. Our activities programme also includes therapeutic activities for people living with dementia, including musical and reminiscence sessions.

Dining and nutrition

Our chefs ensure that all Residents can enjoy the food they love and have plenty of healthy, nutritious options. Our produce is fresh and locally sourced where possible, plus we also provide a good range of dishes on the menu from which to choose.

When Residents first arrive, we take time to find out what their favourite foods and dishes are so we can include them. Any dietary preferences or requirements can be catered for. Menus are reviewed regularly, and we check in with each Resident to make sure they are enjoying the food on offer.

Covid-secure visiting

Our number one priority is keeping Residents safe and connected with their loved ones. We have recently created a COVID-secure, indoor visiting space to ensure that Residents can socialise with their family and friends in warmth and comfort.

A message from our Home Manager

I have been in the care Industry since I was three years old because my parents owned a care home, I started officially working for them when I was 14 years old and I have been lucky enough to have done most roles in a care home from carer, housekeeping and chef, but I have been a manager for the past ten years, working with residents with nursing, residential and dementia needs, as well as learning disabilities. My favourite part of the day is being myself, walking around the home and just putting a smile on the face of residents.

Outside of work, I am love walking my dog, his name is Parker, and we do everything together, but I love empowering the team around me, offering guidance, support and changing cultures. I like to think I am quite hands on and a helpful hand to everyone in the team. I’m very dedicated and passionate to involve residents in how services are developed and operated. I love getting residents involved in decisions, and the day to day running of the home including recruitment so they feel a part of the home.
