Our Building and Facilities

Nature really is at the heart of Lake and Orchard, with so many places to enjoy the true beauty of the 12 acres of untouched land surrounding us – including the River Ouse, which runs along the length of the home. In addition to our front gardens, which contain decked seating areas and a summer house, there are also several other gardens for our residents to enjoy.

The tranquil gardens are perfect for relaxing during the warmer weather, with wheelchair friendly seating areas, flora filled pergolas and raised flower beds for our green-fingered residents, for whom we hold a weekly gardening club.

The Importance Of Meal Times

At Sanctuary Care we recognise meal times have always been a focus for residents in our homes which is why we invest in fantastic chefs and catering staff who can deliver delicious, nutritious menus and create an enjoyable dining experience for our residents. Some of our residents enjoy getting involved in the preparation and serving of food! You can read more about this in our case studies.

Cooked or continental? Sandwiches or hot food? The choice is yours with residents being involved in creating seasonal nutritional menus from old favourites to trying something new…there’s also always freshly baked cakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Midnight snack? No problem, refreshments are available to residents throughout the day and evening if they get a little peckish.

We encourage meal-times where residents can eat together and socialise in a relaxing environment but understand that residents may wish to enjoy food when they and where choose to have it.

Our trained staff understand the importance of eating well and staying hydrated and supporting residents living with dementia to enjoy food in their environment – making food more visible through coloured crockery and more appealing whether it's pureed, finger foods or moulded.

Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner.

Activities Are So Important

Lake and Orchard has a fantastic programme of activities for our residents. Making the most of our wonderful location. As well as the gardening club, our team supports residents to enjoy walks around the beautiful grounds. And for something a little further afield, the minibus trips and excursions to places across York and beyond are a real highlight.

The weekly trips include jaunts to the seaside at Scarborough for fish and chips, the marina at Naburn or even shopping trips to York’s designer outlet.

Passionate about helping residents to remain connected to the wider community, we support them to attend a range of events outside the residential and nursing home. With both a dementia coffee morning and Kurling Club twice a month at Portholme Church and monthly Memories Café at the local church, our residents love to meet new people.

Located in such a small village, we like to welcome people from the local community in Kelfield to visit us at Lake and Orchard. We often invite them along for celebratory events, including carol singing, our Christmas fayre and summer fete, with live entertainment, a Punch and Judy show and stalls galore.

Weekly activities also include arts and crafts, chair exercises, pet therapy, pamper sessions in our hairdressing and beauty salon and a bingo club.
