Our reviews show the quality of their care, activities and nutrition as well as if the care home is value for money and the standard of their facilities.

“Reviews show they provide a high standard of care and we would like to congratulate them on being a Top 20 care home in Yorkshire and the Humber. It is such a big achievement to be named as a top rated care home by the residents who actually receive the care as well as their family and friends.

A spokesperson for Springbank Care Home in Silsden said: “We are absolutely thrilled that two of the Homes in our Group have been awarded as Top 20 Care Homes in the Yorkshire and the Humber region. We cannot thank our residents, friends and family enough for all of their kind words
