Where are we?

We're situated in Gledhow, a quiet suburb of Leeds. We're well connected to the wider community and less than a 15 minute drive into Leeds city centre. Gledhow is located adjacent to Trinity Court retirement apartments.

Activities and events

For those who enjoy the outdoors, our landscaped gardens and summer house are lovely areas to relax.

We’ve a schedule of optional events and activities, helping residents to explore their interests and discover new ones. There’s armchair exercises, baking, flower arranging, arts and crafts and church services.

We have a dedicated chaplain and in-house hair salon. We enjoy regular visits from animals, and together with visits from entertainers and our local nursery, there’s never a dull moment.

Chaplaincy and pastoral support

We are proud to be supported by a dedicated Chaplain who offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs. The chaplain provides a listening presence, companionship and one-to-one pastoral support for all residents, their friends and relatives, and staff members - irrespective of their beliefs - and organise worship for those who wish to participate. Where appropriate, residents are encouraged to maintain links with local faith communities.

Seize the day – unique and memorable opportunities

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.

Your room

We encourage our residents to furnish their own rooms as they wish. This could be as simple as hanging a couple of their favourite pictures on the wall, but they’re also welcome to bring their own comfy chair, or anything that makes them feel at home. The most important thing is for everyone to feel comfortable, happy and settled.

All our bedrooms have an en suite toilet and sink. If your loved one enjoys catching up with the latest news, sport, chat shows or soaps, there’s TV in their room and we have WiFi throughout the home.

Medical and other forms of specialist support are delivered with friendly expertise by our highly skilled team of nursing professionals.

As you’d expect from our wonderfully compassionate team, nursing care is wholly person-centred to meet the requirements of each individual with respect and dignity at all times.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.

We have close links with GP surgeries, district nurses and dentists. We also provide regular gentle exercise sessions, massage and reflexology. Our in-house hair salon keeps everyone looking their best and uplifting visits from a local nursery keep us all young at heart.
