Live your life

Get Busy Living

Everyone ages. It is an inherent property of life. As our bodies and minds develop over time, we adapt to these changes by modifying our decisions and actions. The later years of life can be especially challenging, but Calderdale Retreat is here to help. At Calderdale Retreat, we listen to the needs of our residents in order to understand any limitations they feel they have and discuss potential solutions. We work with our community members to customize options that will help them lead the lives they want.

Nourish Your Soul

Throughout the year, we make sure there’s always something exciting to look forward to at Calderdale Retreat. It’s just one of the things that sets our Care Home apart from the rest. We’re passionate about providing opportunities for our residents to make new memories and friends while enjoying our services.

Our Care

Senior Living

Your care begins with our invitation to spend some time with us at Calderdale Retreat; enjoy a meal with us, perhaps join in the social activities or just sit and soak up the atmosphere and surroundings.

This also gives us an opportunity to chat about the level of support you need and show you the area of the home most appropriate for meeting your requirements.

Whether your need is for residential care, dementia care or a provision of support for people living with advanced dementia, we will work with you and your loved ones to ensure you are in the best place to receive the highest quality of care.

Manager's message

Thank you

As I prepare to go home after almost 3 months of living at the Retreat, and after what I can only describe as an intense yet exhilarating time, I would like to say a personal ‘thank you’ to you. You have all been wonderful and have made sleeping at night a lot easier knowing you are there at any time we need support.

Thank you to the Local Authority, your support has been unwavering and flawless. The weekly calls, the support with PPE, the listening ear, the weekly bulletins which helped to make sense of the everchanging guidance. A personal thank you to Tina for being our main link with everything and for genuinely caring, never failing to ask ‘And how are you?’, which meant a lot. My experience in Calderdale has been a positive one, very different from managers within other LA’s and I am very grateful for that.

Thank you to the team of District Nurses who have continued to support us throughout, respectful, always smiling, always obliging, nothing too much trouble. Great team!

Thank you to the whole team at Stainland Road Group Practice, your support during this time has been faultless. With such responsiveness from the Receptionist, Practice Manager, GP’s and the DN’s we have been able to ensure that people receive prompt care and treatment for conditions not associated with Covid. This has helped to ensure people have maintained good health throughout and be less susceptible to ‘other infections’. The virtual visits have been much appreciated and have given reassurance and peace of mind.

Thank you to Sarah for the opportunity to work with the CCG and a team of nurses in supporting people who have contracted Covid or who may need isolation as a result of the virus. This has been an amazing experience for the team at the Retreat, increasing confidence and giving people a chance to shine. Not only this, but seeing people leave the unit in a much better place than when they arrived has been so rewarding. Together, we pulled off something wonderful and memorable.

Lucy, Louise, Diane, Ann Marie, Sandra, Clare, Rachel, THANK YOU!! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you. You have embraced the challenge, stepped out of your comfort zone and achieved something amazing. You have given people great care and compassion and due to this, they have returned home to their families.

Rose, thank you for your support and all your hard work in ensuring people receive prompt discharge from hospital into Rainbow unit. And for providing the occasional but much needed listening ear 😉 I have loved working with you and do hope our paths continue to cross.

Natalie, thank you for your support in ensuring people experience a safe and seamless discharge from Rainbow unit back to their home. I am looking forward to welcoming you to the Retreat and working with you in the future.

Michelle, thank you for checking in on us despite being engaged in different areas and for the ‘drop off’s’ out of your working hours. As always, your support and listening ear has been much appreciated.

I would also like to say thank you to CMHT, SALT and Physio who have all been exceptionally responsive to the needs of people, again, ensuring they receive prompt care and treatment.

Generally, the daily communication has been great, both in relation to the day to day operation of the service and also with regards to the Rainbow unit.

The journey we have shared could have been so very different if it hadn’t been for the excellent working partnerships and the mutual respect for each other and our roles. I hope that this is something we can continue with moving forward. I realise that, under the circumstances, this may sound a little crazy, but the past few months have been the best, the most rewarding time, one which has brought about a new way of working which can only be for the better of the people in our care. Thank you to you all!
