Thistle Hill Care Centre in Harrogate

The home is ideally situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales near the market town of Knaresborough and the spa town of Harrogate.  At Thistle Hill, we provide a range of accommodation and services for older people in need of support, from respite care to 24-hour nursing care. Alongside this, we offer skilled care for younger people with physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries, and have close links with the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Dementia Care

We also provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.

Our team of highly qualified staff focus on the individual needs of residents using bespoke care plans, which are regularly reviewed. This dedication can be seen across all aspects of life within the home, from cooking and hospitality to our social activities and events programme. Life at Thistle Hill is truly tailored to meet the variety of needs and interests of each resident. 

There are plenty of local amenities nearby and visitors are always welcome, so why not call in and arrange a visit to see all that we have to offer? We understand that looking for care can be a daunting process and are here to provide you with the help and support you need.
