Exciting New Service for Older People in Skipton

At Catholic Care we are really excited to be developing the services we provide to older people. Eller Beck Court is a brand new extra care facility in Skipton offering 60 apartments to older people. Catholic Care will be working in partnership with H21 and our role will be to provide the care service to the scheme.

The extra care model of caring for and supporting older people is well established across North Yorkshire and becoming more established across the west of the county. This model offers a far more dignified way of providing care and support to older people and really values the person. At the heart it offers independent living with access to on site care and support if and when it is needed and the privacy and security of your own home.

Rather than a room in a traditional care home each person will have their own apartment with specially thought out features including:

  • Quality fitted kitchen
  • Lever taps and raised power points
  • Specialist flooring in shower rooms and kitchens to reduce slip hazards
  • Level access showers.

  • Each apartment has a 24 hour digital call system linked to the on site care team enabling a quick response to need and emergencies.

    Living in their own self-contained, fully accessible and modern home enables a person to maintain their independence whilst benefitting from optional care and support packages that are tailored to their individual needs.

    To create the community feel Eller Beck Court will also have warm and friendly communal areas including a resident’s lounge, restaurant, café and hair solon. What more could you want?!
    The Eller Beck Scheme is scheduled to open in the summer of 2021. We are currently recruiting a Registered Manager and will shortly be recruiting a whole team of support workers with a variety of contractual terms available.

    If you or someone you know may be interested in working at Eller Beck Court please contact info@catholic-care.org.uk or keep watching the recruitment page on our web site. Exciting times ahead.
