Our approach to care
Our care services are informed by the collective power of our residents and staff. They are underpinned by the latest research and policy insight from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF). Our person-centred approach means that services are tailored to the individual according to their needs. This offers everything from a little bit of home help to 24-hour nursing care.
We are proud of our care provision, which is amongst the lowest-cost service offered by social landlords in the UK. We continually strive for quality improvement.
Our innovative care services are part of our wider aim to provide housing for all in supportive communities.
We are an inclusive organisation and welcome residents from all backgrounds regardless of their age, disability, gender identity, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, transgender status, or social economic backgrounds.
Retirement Living care
Our Retirement Living care services provide extra care in stimulating environments. Older people may live independently with support previously only available in a residential or nursing home. It is a relatively new housing concept, with many benefits, including:
- receiving care or support in the comfort and privacy of your own home;
- maintained independence and control;
- choice and flexibility in accessing care services;
- housing design features that are suitable for changing needs;
- opportunity for social interaction;
- availability of communal facilities including restaurants, lounges, health suites, activity rooms and libraries.
These extra care services are available in our retirement living communities in Leeds, Hartlepool, York and Scarborough.

JRHT is focused on ensuring that all our residents can maintain as independent a lifestyle as possible. Nearly all homes employ an Activities Coordinator supported by colleagues to provide a range of physical, mental and local community activities relevant to residents lifestyles . Where possible we aim to support residents to maintain a daily life routine to preserve independence and keep the service linked to the community
