About Holgate House
As part of Holgate House’s ideals, we try to source local charities, businesses and tourist attractions, to find new and exciting ways to improve the lives of the individuals living here. With a dedicated staff team who always has their finger on the pulse with local events, large or small, near or far.
These typically include popular pub visits, attending local clubs and societies and ‘retail therapy’. There are also several leisure pursuits or local tourist spots available for service users on a regular basis, such as:
Being near the centre of York means all the famous attractions such as the castle walls, are all within a short walking distance.
Holgate House encourages all its service users to live their best lives, constantly looking for new ways to engage them in local projects, decoration of the home and various local placements.
A home from home...
Holgate House is a vastly experienced provider of supporting people with more complex needs, including those with profound and multiple learning disabilities, physical or mental, and challenging behaviour.
Our varied range of service users has a multitude of different needs and support that we aim to supply them with on a day-to-day basis, from simply being able to sit with a coffee and have a chat, to taking out larger groups of individuals on trips to the coast.
Our highly trained team consists of committed individuals who are passionate about meeting the practical, social and emotional needs of the service users in their care and often go the extra mile to ensure daily life is as fulfilling for them as possible.
Our service users have choices too – such as deciding how your home is run, choosing your support workers and picking how you want to decorate your bedroom.
Holgate House is incredibly proud of its “Good” rating with CQC and strives to maintain the high standards we have set ourselves. We have many success stories of individuals who have lived here and moved on to be independent or improved their quality of life, and we’d love to create & share in new ones!
