A Well Loved York Care Home

Amarna House Care Home, situated in the Acomb district of York just off the A59 Boroughbridge Road has been serving residents from across North Yorkshire for the last ten years and offers some of the finest residential and dementia care in the region.

The home is warm and welcoming and built to a high specification and design. Light and airy bedrooms have walk-in wet rooms and TVs as standard, and lounges are attractively furnished with comfy chairs and sofas, occasional tables and bookcases.

Whether it’s the Princes Trust or the Archbishop of York’s Leadership programme, the young people of York are regular and welcome visitors to our home. Our Facebook page below contains just some of recreational activities we enjoy and is testament to the hard work and unique atmosphere of our home.

Amarna House is a thriving community of residents who all contribute to life in the home. With a lovely garden, its greenhouse and raised beds and an extensive programme of activities, there is always something going on.

Local volunteers both young and adult help give the home a feeling of togetherness and companionship, and our Body & Soul Relaxation Room is always busy.

We are special because we have:

  • A large outdoor garden with communal spaces
  • An indoor garden for those unable to venture outside
  • An in-house café staffed by The Friends of Amarna House
  • A focus on dementia care
  • A hair salon, chiropody and many alternative therapy services
  • A dedicated cinema room

To see what we get up to, you might want to view our dedicated Facebook which is kept updated with all the activities and goings on in the home. Alternatively, call our friendly home manager Linda Donnellan-Beevers  on 01904 798509 if you have any further queries or would like to arrange for a show around.

Laughter is the best medicine…

Amarna House has established strong ties with local schools and associations who play a valuable role in ensuring residents remain part of the wider community. Students from local schools and colleges, including Millthorpe, All Saints School and Manor Church of England Academy Sixth Form, are regular visitors to Amarna, sitting and chatting to residents or getting involved with activities. The students helped create the popular indoor garden area on the dementia floor, a stimulating and sensory space which is open to all. They also like to be involved with arts and craft activities, and many Amarna designs are sold at local fairs, with the proceeds used to fund further events and activities.

The volunteer group, Attend, has helped establish The Friends of Amarna House, and there are now ten volunteers who are regular visitors. They also provide the driver for the home’s minibus, taking residents out on daily jaunts or to specific events and activities. Volunteers and relatives also bring in dogs to visit, which is especially popular with the residents.

Some of our activities include:

  • Making Bugingham Palace (home for creepy crawlies)
  • Drying roses for pot pourri
  • Knitting fish
  • Having a visit from the Lord Mayor
  • Going out to vintage tea parties
  • Potting up orchids in the greenhouse
  • Looking after our free range chickens in the garden (Hope they change their shoes when they come inside!)

Fresh From the Garden

What could be better than fresh vegetables from the garden or tomatoes from the greenhouse, grown by our very own residents? Amarna House’s two resident chefs like to use what is on their doorstep and always do their best to ensure that all food cooked in the kitchen is as fresh as possible. It’s also locally sourced and chimes with the seasons. So all of our residents, and their guests when they like to invite them, receive the very best of nutritionally balanced and healthy meals. Special dietary needs and health considerations are well taken care of too.

Staff are ever mindful that meal times are equally important social events, and like to make sure the table and each dish is as beautifully presented as they know how. There are delicious home baked cakes and fresh pastries available throughout the day, along with fresh fruit, juices and drinks. Wine and aperitifs accompany the meals. Come and have a glass yourself, or a cup of coffee and tempting cake if you would prefer.
