Choosing a care home is a big decision, and of course you want to find the best care home you can for yourself or your relative.

York is very fortunate to have many good care homes but the simple answer is that the ‘Best Care Home in York’ is the one which suits you best.
Before you start shortlisting homes from those available, we suggest you make a checklist with the person entering the home, of the things that are important to them.

This will involve everything from;
• Location: perhaps close to friends and family?
• Care: is specialist care required or not?
• Flexibility: is the home able to be flexible to personal requests?
• Atmosphere: what does home mean to them?

We are always open to viewings, in fact positively encourage them as we will then have the chance to show you around and allow you an opportunity to see the home and meet staff and residents.

Of course we think we are the Best Care Home in York but we will leave you to decide that for yourselves!

At Ivy Lodge Residential Home we are proud to be rated by the CQC as 'Outstanding' for our level of care and 'Good' in all other aspects. These ratings are testament to the focus we have as a team year on year in delivering the highest standard of care possible for our residents.
