Team at Wykewood care home

Wykewood care home in Wyke, Bradford, celebrated its first year anniversary last week. The specialist care home opened in June 2021, and is now home to 19 residents and employer to 74 incredible colleagues.

Wykewood opened its doors in June 2021 following its successful registration with CQC, specialising in caring for adults over and under 65 years, dementia, mental health conditions and physical disabilities.

Since, the home has provided a welcoming and supportive home for 19 residents who benefit from the in-house team of Registered Nurses, Health Care Assistants, Life Skills Coordinators and Physiotherapist.

They enjoyed refreshments and a beautiful cake baked by the home’s Chef.
