Sycamore Hall has a reputation for providing very high standards of care for residents who have a wide and varied range of care needs within the dementia spectrum. The manager and staff aim to improve or maintain the quality of daily life for all residents, whatever their needs.
The service employs experienced registered nurses and care assistants, who continue their professional development with further training to ensure that they provide 24 hour professional support for the people living in Sycamore Hall.
The ethos of care at Sycamore Hall is to provide a balance between promoting and supporting independence whilst providing personal and nursing care. Staff respect the rights of the residents, maintaining their dignity and independence at all times. They promote person-centred care as each of the residents is a unique individual so each one has an individual and personal plan that is written with input from the resident, their family and friends and any healthcare professional who may be involved with their care.
Activities of daily life include physical and mental stimulation and a variety of activities are available within the home. They have a very flexible activity timetable but it includes baking, painting, music, gardening, armchair exercises, reminiscing sessions and newspaper and poetry readings. This can quickly change to an impromptu garden party if it is a sunny day.

Recommendation submitted from a Website Submission by Mike Paxton (Son of Resident/Service User) on Saturday 31 January 2015. Recommendation relates to January 2015.
I have previously entered a recommendation of this home on their web site. Mike Paxton
Unfortunately my father passed away on the 28th January in Harrogate District Hospital after being a resident in the home for nearly three years.
I can honestly say that these were three of the happiest years of his life. He classed Sycamore Hall as being "my home" and he meant it.
I cannot praise highly enough the management and staff of Sycamore Hall and I know they they loved my father as much as he loved them. What more could a relative ask for.
For any relative wondering if this is the right home for their relative all I can say is visit the home and you will see for yourself how good it is.
I cannot praise them enough and all I can do is to thank them from the bottom of my heart for the care and love they gave my father.
