Mount Vale Care Home in Northallerton

Here at Mount Vale, we provide  high quality 24-hour nursing care and residential support, alongside expert care for those living with dementia. We also offer respite care and short breaks, which can be pre-booked up to a year in advance.

Dementia Care

Mount Vale has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.

Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.

Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.

A beautifully restored, former maternity hospital, Mount Vale is located in the scenic Northallerton. It has easy access to both the North Yorkshire Dales, Cleveland and the historic city of York. Our home is also situated close to Thirsk, Ripon, Yarm, Stokesley, Richmond and Bedale, so is well placed for visiting friends and family, who are always welcome.

We believe that you will find we are ideally suited to meet your needs, so why not call in for a cup of tea or coffee and see for yourself? We look forward to seeing you soon.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Helen Lewis

General Manager

Welcome to Mount Vale Care Home, my name is Helen and I am the General Manager here.

My nursing career began when I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1983. After 20 years of working for the NHS, I moved into the 'private' sector and commenced a journey into care Home Management. I have worked for a number of well known care providers (including Barchester earlier in my career), before returning to Barchester (at Mount Vale) in December 2015. 

Mount Vale is a beautiful home and I have found the care team to be extremely warm and friendly. I hope that if you come to take a look at Mount Vale, you will experience the same positive experience that I did when I first walked into the home.
