We’re wanting to do absolutely anything and everything that we can to eliminate loneliness amongst older people in our local communities. With our second national lockdown well underway it’s an unbelievably distressing and lonely time for many – you may be alone yourself or have a close friend, relative or neighbour who lives alone. Even the most resilient of our older community are finding the anxiety and isolation hard to bear.

We want to make a difference… it’s that simple… It’s our company motto and as one of Yorkshire’s leading care providers we want to make a very special difference this Christmas. So, we’re launching our campaign by offering a residential care room with full board, absolutely nothing to pay, for the period approaching Christmas and into the New Year at The Chocolate Works Care Village, York.

We’re going to safely take a locally based, deserving individual into our care, settle them into one of our lovely rooms with its own en-suite bathroom and provide everything that’s required for a stay with us of about 6 weeks. There is absolutely no doubt that they’ll enjoy an extra special, magical Christmas and New Year with our residents and staff at The Chocolate Works Care Village. There’ll be a fantastic array of festive activities and events, not to mention wonderful, tasty food to enjoy. As Christmas is a time for family and friends, we’ll make sure they keep in touch with their nearest and dearest too via the latest technology as well as good old-fashioned paper and pen! But that’s not all, once the new year is well and truly in and it’s time to return home rest assured, we’ll help our VIP guest settle back in there too with a fantastic hamper of goodies and put plans in place to keep in touch with new friends!

If this fantastic opportunity is something you or someone you know would love to experience, then we can’t wait to hear from you so please do get in touch. Email us on info@springfieldhealthcare.com to find out more and to apply. 

Alternatively, you may be a local person or business who wants to help make a difference along with us by enhancing the experience. Perhaps you can offer a super deluxe mode of transport to and from home for our VIP, look after a much-loved pet or offer to send a gift at Christmas. It’s time to get the whole community involved and spread some much-needed heartwarming Christmas cheer!

We’re offering without any charge:

Furnished en-suite bedroom for the duration of the stay

All meals including Christmas Dinner!

Laundry service

Any residential care assistance required

Full programme of seasonal activities designed for physical and mental wellbeing
