Welcome to Whitby House and Larchwood Care.
Here at Whitby House Care Home, we are proud to offer first class care for the elderly on a permanent or respite basis, delivered by highly trained professionals in lovely comfortable surroundings.
Each of our units, either Nursing or Residential are able to offer single bedrooms, which can be personalised with pictures or your favourite ornaments and trinkets. Each room has a wash basin, bedside furniture and either a standard or specialised nursing bed.
The home has 24 hour Nursing and Senior/ Care staff, as well a full complement of Activity, Domestic, Laundry, Kitchen, Maintenance and Administration staff to meet your every need. Friends and family are welcome at any time. Hot drinks and snacks are always available and guests are invited to share a meal with residents. Our cook prepares three nutritious meals a day and the menu changes regularly to reflect seasonal produce. Special diets are catered for.
Our philosophy is simple; we want everyone to enjoy life to the full. We never forget that all our residents are individuals and we treat them with dignity, privacy and respect while offering freedom of choice and as much independence as possible.
Residents have freedom to choose what to do and when. There is plenty going and our activities coordinator puts together a full programme which is adapted to suit the needs and wishes of our residents. Activities include quizzes, sing-alongs, reminiscence therapy, indoor games, art and craft, baking and wherever possible, trips out and about.
Finally, Whitby House is fully regulated by the local council as well as the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which a link to the latest inspection is provided on this website. Also check out our reviews on carehome.co.uk, a link is also provided to this website on here.
I’d love to show you around the home. So if you should like a tour, or wish to discuss any aspect of your loved ones care with me, please telephone the home to make an appointment. We all understand that finding the right care home for your family member is an important decision and each of our staff are here to help you in any way possible.
