Situated on the edge of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales, near the market town of Knaresborough, Thistle Hill Care Centre offers a friendly welcome to all which helps promote a true feeling of a 'home from home'. We aim to improve the quality of life for each and every resident living here with us by providing care in a safe and comfortable environment.

Our dedicated and experienced team is passionate about providing first-class 24-hour nursing care alongside expert care for people with dementia in our Memory Lane Community. We also provide expert care for younger people with a physical disability or acquired brain injury, and have close links with the Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Thistle Hill recently became only the second Yorkshire care home (both are part of Barchester Healthcare) to be awarded the prestigious Quality of Life Kitemark for Dementia Care Matters’ Butterfly Service™ for providing outstanding and sustained dementia care to the community it serves. Being one of only 25 homes nationwide to have received this Award, we aim to recognise, support and celebrate each person's individuality.

Our team of highly-qualified staff really focus on the individual needs of all our residents with a tailored care plan for each person. This dedication can be seen in all aspects of life within the home - in our cooking, hospitality and our social activity, events and visits programme which is designed to meet the needs and particular interests of all those who live with us at Thistle Hill.

With both towns of Knaresborough and Harrogate nearby, there are plenty of local amenities and visiting for friends and family is welcomed at all times.

Why not call in or arrange a visit to see all that we have to offer? We can then learn more about your particular needs and how we may be able to help you - whether now or in the future. Looking for care can be such a daunting process and we are keen to provide you with the help and support you will need to guide you through this process. We hope to see you soon!

Review of Barchester Thistle Hill Care Centre on Tuesday 14 May 2013 by Alice Margaret R (Wife of resident)

It is a wonderful care home. I visit at all different times, always the same caring and professional manner, also a very much homely feel. I can now sleep at night and know my husband is well cared for. There is nothing but praise and thanks for the way my husband is treated, also all the patients I see are treated in the same manner, with dignity and a loving attitude.

Review of Barchester Thistle Hill Care Centre on Wednesday 1 May 2013 by Lynn B (Daughter of resident)

Thistle Hill excels in treating the person not their illness. They individualise care, maximize everyone's involvement in their daily life and take close personal interest in the whole family, making everyone feel welcome and still an integral part of our loved ones care. The staff are exceptionally patient and thoughtful with everyone and the quality of food is outstanding. It gives me peace of mind to know my mum is receiving the best possible care.
