You are welcome to come and look around

As the days are getting shorter, we know that autumn and winter are just around the corner. 

Welcome

Orchard House Care Home is a family-owned care home providing day care and respite care in Scarborough, North Yorkshire. We understand that caring for someone who has an illness, dementia or other disability can exert a heavy toll on families. Our day care and respite services are a welcome break from your caring role and a great day out or longer stay for the person you support.

Katrina Shamel

“Dad really did enjoy Orchard House, he was never distressed or upset either when he was a day pupil or a boarder!!! But also it gave my Mum so much comfort that he was with such a caring team. Thanks for everything that you and your staff did to look after him.” 

Lynn, Relative

“Thank you for looking after my husband so well. He really enjoyed his stay, his room and the great bath, as well as the care and attention you have all shown him. I had a great time relaxing and doing nothing, you might not know it, but you saved me”

Kathryn, Relative

“Dad always enjoyed coming for the day and we are looking forward to you reopening so that he can join you again. The respite care is second to none, all of Dad’s needs are met, and he is so relaxed and enjoys his time with you.
