Priestley Care Home
Priestley care home is in the heart of Birstall, a village south west of Leeds and five minutes from the motorway network. Specialising in care for the elderly, Priestley provides 24-hour residential care within modern and purpose-built accommodation. We also benefit from lovely green gardens that provide a pleasant, peaceful and secure environment in which to enjoy the outdoors.
The home has 40 ensuite rooms, all decorated to high standards, with modern furnishings and fittings. Residents are encouraged to personalise their own space, decorating with pictures and photographs, and some furnishings from how if they wish. The communal areas are spacious and light and it’s here that our residents can spend time together. A choice of TV or quiet lounges and a family room for more personal gatherings are fitted with a loop system for those with hearing difficulties.
The home is very much part of the Birstall community and we are often invited to join in with village events. We receive a visit from the local primary school each week, with children reading to our residents, an activity that has real positive impact on everyone. With trips out to the local community and a regular hairdresser in the home, there is a hive of activity, and the Activity Coordinator in the home was awarded a group recognition for her work in early 2016.
Burlington Care strongly support the provision of a healthy, nutritious and balanced diet for all residents. The approach to nutrition taken is based upon choice and quality for residents. We take pride in providing tasty, tempting meals for our residents. Mealtimes are regarded as enjoyable social occasions for most residents, although those who wish to eat their meals in their own rooms are enabled to do so. Each resident will be asked for their individual food preferences as well as their cultural, religious or health needs and these will be taken into account when planning menus. Special dietary requirements can be met, as all our meals and baking are ‘home’ cooked on the premises. Friends and relatives are welcome to make use of the conveniently located kitchenettes, one on each floor, which are available 24 hours a day.
