We offer to each resident, independence, privacy, dignity, confidentiality and equal rights. We aim, with the help of our dedicated and friendly staff, to support as fulfilled a life as possible.
We offer a full and comprehensive range of facilities and services that cater for all our resident’s needs…
All the bedrooms are single with telephone and en-suite facilities. Each room varies in size and shape and most are south or west facing with views of the beautiful gardens. The house retains much of the original furniture and fittings but residents may bring their own furniture for their rooms if they wish. There is a lift to all floors and a back door with a porch and ramp access.
Holderness House is renowned for its beautiful large walled grounds, a green oasis in the centre of Hull. Ladies enjoy daily visits from the resident wildlife and the beautiful seasonal displays from the many fine specimen trees. We have a lovely summer house to enjoy in the warmer weather and the views can also be enjoyed from the pleasant sun room on the first floor.
Our beautiful library with views over the gardens is stocked with a vast array of books for every taste, including ones with large print and talking books. It is a well-used space by our residents and the selections are changed regularly. Adjoining the library is a lovely large sunny lounge with comfy chairs, a colour TV and a grand piano for social occasions.
Our lovely bright dining room is used for all the resident’s meals and has a choice of menu options, including for those residents who have special dietary needs. Fresh fruit and vegetables are served every day and our welcoming dining room is one of the focal rooms in the house for residents to socialise together on a daily basis. Meals can also be served to a lady’s room when required.
All our rooms are equipped with a television, or indeed a lady can bring her own television into the home if she would prefer. Every room has its own telephone and Wi-Fi is available throughout the House and is used daily to keep in touch with family and friends via online means. All residents can retire to the privacy of their own room at any time.
Our resident hairdresser visits weekly and this lovely service is enjoyed by many of our residents. It’s a time to be pampered and enjoy the social company. We also have a registered chiropodist who visits the house regularly – and special requirements for other services can be made at the ladies or family request.
Weekly music and movement sessions are enjoyed by the residents, alongside a variety of entertainments that take place throughout the year. During non-Covid times the House is visited by school groups and choirs and fundraising activities take place at various times of the year which involve and include all the residents.
District nursing, doctors, dentists, opticians, community psychiatric nurses, dieticians, pharmacists – and all the people attending the House undertaking these services for our residents are from recognised authoritative bodies. All residents are attended by their own doctor wherever possible and the dentist and opticians visit regularly.
Here at Holderness House we understand the pressures of being a carer and the desire for a much-needed break. Although we have some protocols in place during the current pandemic, we continue to offer day-care and respite care packages for your relative or friend to join us for the day or a few days in the House.
Your relative or friend can join us for breakfast, lunch and dinner and enjoy the company of our lovely residents and be cared for by our dedicated staff. It’s a chance to enjoy a new environment, join in our daily entertainment and make new friends.
Our service allows carers to drop their relative or friend with us in the morning and enjoy a much needed and deserved break for the day or for a few days.
Our day care service is from 8am until 8pm 7-days-a-week at a cost of between £35 and £40 depending on needs.
Included in this cost are breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus refreshments. Assisted personal care with a bath or shower if required and to join in with our entertainment and have their nails manicured.
There is also the opportunity to have a hair appointment (Wednesdays and Thursdays) at an additional cost of £7.50.
If you are interested in finding out more please contact our Management Team on 01482 702657 to arrange a visit and see for yourself what our beautiful House has to offer. An assessment would also need to be carried out to look at needs, special diet, and medication etc and of course discuss our Covid requirements based on government guidance.
This is a unique service that provides benefit to carers and their relative or friend and we warmly invite you to take this up. We look forward to welcoming you!
