About Amarna House
The Amarna House Care Home on Rosetta Way, off the Boroughbridge Road, York is under new management.
Avery Healthcare took over the management of the home in November 2014 and will now begin to transform Amarna House into a thriving community of care; a place that offers its residents a high standard of living through daily activities, fine dining and care that is both dignified and respectful.
We look forward to coming to York and bringing to the area a home of outstanding quality that enjoys and contributes to this south east London community.
Situated in the heart of a residential community in the historic city of York, Amarna House is an 80 bedded care home offering a range of care including Dementia, Nursing and Residential care.
