New dementia care home opens in Harrogate

A new care home for people living with dementia will open its doors in Harrogate this week after being officially certified for opening by the Care Quality Commission.

Vida Hall has created over 70 jobs with the new £5m purpose-built facility which offers full day and residential care.



The facility has been built on land formerly owned by Harrogate Railway FC, with the land being sold to Vida to allow the development of a new club house and all-weather pitch facilities.

The 70-bed residential accommodation is divided into four specialist homes depending on level of care needed.

Day care facilities are available for up to ten clients who will be able to take full advantage of Vida Hall’s therapeutic interventions, personal care support and opportunities for social engagement and activities. They will have the same access to the latest medical and dementia care initiatives as residents.
