Selby, YO8 8DA

Denison House Care Home is located in the pleasant residential area of Selby.

Located in a pleasant residential area of Selby, Denison House is a vibrant, spacious, dementia friendly care home, registered to accommodate up to 30 elderly residents, either for a long term stay or for short periods of respite. We have daily activities, including chair exercise classes, motivation groups, singing and dancing sessions, holistic therapy, and arts & crafts, as well as a great outdoor space for residents to relax in.

Denison House is within walking distance of Selby town centre, which includes a variety of shops, pubs and cafes, as well as an open market every Monday. Several parks, a large library, a bus station and train station are situated nearby.

Quite a lot of people come to stay with us from home or following a stay in hospital and often for a trial period.

We appreciate not everyone is the same and have individual needs and preferences. We also understand that a move into residential care is a big step. With this in mind, we will carry out a care and needs assessment in response to your enquiry.

Spacious facilities for daily living are essential to well-being and we have created an excellent environment where clients can feel relaxed, at home and enjoy a welcoming space for their visitors

Helen Oldfield

I have worked at Denison House since 2017, starting in the office, before becoming Deputy Manager and then Registered Manager. I am a dementia care champion for the home and have worked towards a Level 5 diploma in Health and Social Care.

My passion for care comes from caring for my mother and my grandma. I looked after my mother before she sadly passed away from cancer and I cared for my grandma for two years when she developed advanced dementia.

My experiences caring for loved ones taught me that it is ‘OK’ to admit you are struggling – help is available – and I learned that I could make a difference to peoples’ lives.

I am so proud of Denison House and the team I work with.
