Residential Care Homes For Adults With Learning Disabilities in Yorkshire


Brackenley Care Home For Adults With Learning Disabilities

Brackenley, is an award winning residential care home in Starbeck, Harrogate, for up to 13 adults with learning support needs.

We provide 24 hour residential care, supporting people to lead full lives, in the community. In February 2017 it achieved the Excellence in Care standard awarded by the Excellence Squared organisation.

Excellence Squared said: “Our assessment report highlighted how “evidence from staff, residents, family members and professionals demonstrated that the ‘resident’ is the primary focus. Staff are very positive….and talents are nurtured, providing residents with access to a range of activities. Staff knowledge, attitude and behaviour is regarded as the home’s biggest asset.”

Brackenley is a fine detached house in its own grounds and with an allotment close by.

One of its features is a state-of-the-art sensory cabin which aids the development of residents with its many sound and image displays promoting communication, interaction and stimulation.

Having achieved a Care Quality Commission rating of Good, HS4LC’s commitment to providing excellent care continues.
