More Than Just A Care Home
Care at Askham Village Community focuses on the recognition that every resident is unique and has preferences or needs that afford respect. Our trained care and nursing staff ensure that day or night everyone is able to live as full a life as possible. We provide long term care and offer shorter get away breaks, welcoming all to stay and enjoy the surroundings.
We also offer respite care – respite care is when a carer needs a break and the person being cared for is then cared for by others. Sometimes it is also true that its the cared for that need a break from the carer! At Askham Village Community, we make this happen by providing an experience of care and rejuvenation that is as valuable as it is satisfying.

A converted country residence long established as a care home with nursing for the elderly, Askham House offers quality care and support to people who require a more traditional styled setting. Friends and family are an important part of life at Askham House; residents are able to receive them at any time as they would in their own home or take them ‘out’ to the Askham Café.
Maintaining a person’s individuality is a high priority in planning their health and social care. Religious, ethnic and cultural observations are taken into account and provided for within the home. Individual assessments take account of personal qualities, talents & experiences and reflect their choice in food, dress and rising/retiring times.
