Stockingate Residential & Dementia Care Home

Stockingate is a 25 bed care home situated in the heart of the former coal-mining town of South Kirkby, Pontefract.

This tranquil location is well served by local amenities like local GP Surgeries, Pharmacy, and is only a few minutes walk from Church of All Saints. The home provides a calm friendly and informal support for residents to feel as home as possible with support designed with our residents to meet personal needs and aspirations.

The home has communal spaces which are both relaxing and interesting with murals and colourfull artwork to brighten and provide interesting talking points to stimulate conversation.

There is a large TV lounge and smaller quiet lounge available. We also have a separate dining room, although residents can choose to have meals privately in their rooms, should they wish.

The home has wheelchair and lift access, and all the necessary support equipment such as; mobile hoists, bath hoists, stand-aids.

The large secure garden to the rear of the home has seats and a short looped pathway which enables residents, friends and family to enjoy the open space - weather permitting of course!
