Who We Are
Rated as Outstanding by CQC (Inspection Report published 10/6/16) ,St John's House offers the best care within beautiful surroundings.It was originally built in 1910 and is nestled in the beautiful village of Kirk Hammerton just on the outskirts of York. The attractive Tudor style building has been completely refurbished to provide modern, luxurious facilities within a classic setting. Home to 34 residents, the tranquil setting is even home to several chickens and our friendly rescue-dog,'Lady'
Situated in-between Harrogate and York, St John’s House is in the perfect location for families on both side of the A59 and is easily accessible. St John’s house has an open door policy, meaning that family and friends can come and visit whenever they like and we can also arrange for the residents to visit you at your home too.
St John’s House also benefits from having a dedicated Respite service, allowing residents to come and stay on a day by day basis. We appreciate that choosing a new home is not an easy decision and sometimes, the best way to help make that decision easier is for you to come and try the home out before you commit. Thanks to our Respite service, we encourage residents to do exactly this so that both the resident and their families are happy and comfortable with everything.
With only 1 in every 200 carehomes being rated as Outstanding by CQC you can be assured of our high standards in everything we do.We were also the first home within the UK to achieve the Customer First standard.Our latest achievement for a group of the St John’s House residents is our choir.
