Welcome to Abbey Lea,
our caring and comfortable care home.

A caring, comfortable and happy residential home, we care for 23 elderly male and female residents, some of whom have dementia related conditions.  

An attractive listed building located in the village of Barlby, close to Selby, we have 19 single and two shared bedrooms. We also have spacious reception and dining rooms and a lift.

Peace of mind and quality of life sit at the heart of everything we do for our residents and our team aim to provide the very best personalised, care.

“Everything you did for Mum was with comfort and welfare at its heart. Mum was cared for by the most amazing, dedicated, caring and professional staff who are a credit to this home.”  Anne

Our experienced care team is on hand seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day within our large house, set in the grounds of a mature garden and throughout the week we offer a range of varied activities for our residents and our day care guests.

We are all dedicated to try and ensure that life at Abbey Lea is homely, secure and fun and we will be delighted to welcome you to view the home and talk through what you, your family and loved ones are looking for.

How far can the residents throw a plate?!?! (Paper) well we soon found out🤣 4.8meters being the longest distance for the plate.
Blowing a pom pom through a straw was definately harder 🤭 the longest distance was 0.914meters!
These were tasks for our olympic days, and the residents definately enjoyed the plate throwing 😄❤️
Well done to all that competed, you have all been amazing athletes 🥇

So today some staff enjoyed fire marshall training which is practical training by an external company, seeing the different types of fires & putting them out with different extinguishers and blankets i think was the best ( & most nerve wracking😅) part of the training for the staff🤣 but from start to finish was a brilliant training session👍roll on the next lot of practical training in the next few weeks😄 #facetofacetraining #safetyfirst #alwayslearning
