Hopton Cottage – Best Care Home in West Yorkshire

Give Mum a Fun New Life!

With 24/7 Care From Kind & Attentive Staff

Are We Right For Your Mum or Dad?

Joseph from Hopton Cottage Care Home in HuddersfieldHi, I’m Joseph Martin, the Company Director here at Hopton Cottage Care Home.

I’m proud that our 24/7 care has been rated as Outstanding by The CQC, but what really makes us the best choice for your Mum is something quite special and unique to Hopton Cottage. We left old fashioned care home thinking behind and built our care home from scratch with a mission to…

Give Your Mum or Dad a Wonderful & Fun New Life!

That’s our primary focus and everything we do is built around making sure your Mum enjoys herself again and discovers a new richness in her life.

Because whether turning 80, 90, or even… 100 – everyone deserves the chance to make the best out of every single day.

At any point in our journey, life can be turned into a new adventure and we’ve found that wonderful things happen to older people when a new burst of fun and meaning is brought into their lives.

Your Mum or Dad’s EXACT needs are met at the right time

To make sure we would transform the lives of everyone we care for, we did something unique when we designed Hopton Cottage… We built 3 care homes on 1 site.

Greenway Cottages – For residents who are Mentally Alert
Woodend Cottages – For residents who are Becoming Forgetful
Riverside Cottages – For residents with Dementia

3 totally separate areas with specialist staff means your Mum gets care tailored to her needs specifically. Other care homes simply lump everyone together and this makes it impossible to create the kind of lifestyle everyone living here at Hopton Cottage now enjoys.

This is UNIQUE to Hopton Cottage & when you come to visit us you’ll see for yourself what a difference this makes to the happiness of everyone living here. It’s one of the things that makes a fun new life possible, but there’s so much more that makes Hopton Cottage special.

Down this page you’ll find out:

 

  • Why choosing Hopton Cottage means you’ll see your Mum enjoy life & smile again 
  • How we help your Mum gain weight & feel healthy
  • What makes our 24/7 care award winning
  • The importance of our location

First I want to show you that I genuinely understand the situation you and your Mum or Dad are in right now. 

Like our care home, this website has separate areas because this will help get your Mum or Dad the care they need.

So it’s important you press the best button below…

What best describes your Mum or Dad?

(No Dementia)

Is Your Mum or Dad Mentally Alert?

Then you probably have a nagging in the back of your mind like so many people who call up Hopton Cottage. Our subconscious is pretty smart and when you watch someone you care about become more and more forgetful and struggle to cope at home, it’s hard to ignore 1 simple truth…

Your Mum or Dad is no longer safe at home on their own

It’s a very sad moment when we recognise our Mum or Dad has got to this point but this shouldn’t be the end of the story. In fact it can become the end of a period of struggle and be the start of a positive chapter in your Mum or Dad’s life.

Do any of these things sound familiar?

  • Your Mum or Dad often loses track of time of day
  • Diet has gone downhill with poor appetite & forgetting to eat
  • Home care is not enough because help is only available on a schedule, not exactly when it’s needed! What about if a fall happens at night? And who makes sure your Mum or Dad eats all their meals if the meal is prepared and then just left on the side for later.
  • Your Mum or Dad is likely to feel chronically lonely & will often call you many times each week, even in the middle of the night.
  • She’s too isolated and has nothing to occupy her time or mind.
  • Medication gets missed or causes anxiety and confusion.
  • Mum or Dad is vulnerable to cold callers on phone and at the door
  • Taking a fall at home is a matter of when, not if
  • Your Mum or Dad’s other half passed away recently and they were a strong team after all those years so now loneliness is chronic on top of a loss of routine and the comfort and safety that long term partners find in each other.

But it’s not all about your Mum or Dad, what about you?

Of course you can’t be there for them all the time.

You have your own life going on, maybe you have children or even grand children but that doesn’t stop your worry or feelings of guilt, which are normal in this situation.

 

You probably don’t even feel you can go on holiday because Mum or Dad will get anxious and struggle to cope or something bad could happen.

Our 2nd neighbourhood, Riverside Cottages was designed and built specifically for your situation. Your Mum or Dad settle into their new home in an area with people at exactly the same stage of life as them. This means that we can effectively train and focus our staff on the perfect level of extra care that’s needed for someone who is starting to become forgetful. But without your Mum or Dad being lumped together with old people suffering from full Dementia.

This leads to a very welcoming environment for your Mum and Dad that other care homes simply can’t achieve due to their lack of tailored care.

If your Mum or Dad is more and more forgetful and struggling at home then Hopton Cottage Care Home genuinely is the very best thing that could happen in their lives. Moving to us starts a very positive new chapter in life and makes fun and joy possible again.

At Hopton Cottage Care Home…

  • Your Mum or Dad will be safe again and importantly feel safe at last.
  • They will start eating properly again and regain a healthy amount of weight.
  • Dementia will settle down and be less of a noticeable issue for your Mum or Dad. We see it time and time again, it actually appears that the onset of Dementia slows down.
  • Your Mum or Dad will make friends and start to laugh again. Yes seriously!! We watch even the most stubborn of souls bond with new friends after they make Hopton Cottage their new home.
  • With so many organised hobbies & activities there’s always fun to be had here and something to do each day.
  • Your Mum or Dad even get’s regular exercise and they will start to feel healthier around 3 or 4 weeks after joining us.

Of course it’s very difficult to prove but after my 13 years at Hopton I’m convinced that the people who join us actually live longer, a lot longer. But there’s one thing I value even more than that…

Do you remember what I said our primary focus is at Hopton Cottage?

 

Everything we do here is carefully designed to give your Mum or Dad a wonderful & Fun New Life!

At Hopton Cottage people have fun again and enjoy themselves in the company of new friends, both fellow residents and also the people here who care for them. I hope you decide to visit us and see this for yourself.

There’s one last thing I’d like to mention that people tell me is a huge plus they didn’t think of before their Mum or Dad joined us at Hopton Cottage. Once here your Mum or Dad will actually enjoy time with their family again, rather than being anxious to get needs met whilst you are with them.

Your relationship with your Mum or Dad moves on from carer and dependent so you can actually get to chat properly with your Mum or Dad again and enjoy the time you spend together.

Please think about that for a moment because this is a biggie!

We all love our family but it’s the special little moments of connection that make all the difference in the world. When your Mum or Dad makes Hopton Cottage their home, then those little moments of connection start to flow again. With all our loving staff members, with new friends and most importantly between you and your Mum or Dad.

Keep reading to the bottom of this page and soon you’ll get a real sense of how much better the future looks for your Mum or Dad and also for you.

I want you to take a breath of relief as you realise what your Mum or Dad’s life can look like in the next few months. What happens when you make the decision to trust the right people to use the right skills and mindset in the right way.

You probably don’t even feel you can go on holiday because Mum or Dad will get anxious and struggle to cope or something bad could happen. It’s a cruel irony because unofficial carers are some of the most overworked people in the country.

You Need to Trust The People Keeping Mum Safe

If You Want Genuine Care From Kind People, Then Meet Hopton’s Staff Team

On Hand All Day, Every Day!

Expert Care 24/7

I’ve learnt from years of experience that it’s absolutely crucial to have a team with a positive mind-set, who feel respected & supported in their vital roles. Let me explain why…

Older people tend to be quite proud. They can find it hard to ask for help at the best of times. If staff don’t enjoy their work or walk around appearing unhappy, then residents will notice. This will make it harder for them to ask for help when it's really needed.

We only employ the best people for each & every role. Our staff are all passionate about helping people and want to make a difference. Our team is made up of all ages & backgrounds.

When choosing Hopton you're also choosing a group of people – our staff.

A founding principle of ours is to make sure your Mum is always at the heart of our service and is treated as an individual.

We don’t cut corners and we never cut costs.

Our management team have nearly 50 years of experience between them providing care for older people.

Staff at Hopton are reminded every day that they are valued members of a team. Our care assistants love coming to work & are passionate about providing kindness and care.

Every member of our team from the chefs to the maintenance team are trained in dementia awareness and buy into our ethos of kindness, friendliness, and positivity.

We have a first-class management team here and a team of fantastic carers who are skilled, patient, and always kind.

Our staff recieve the best detailed training programmes. They all have an NVQ Care Level 2 Qualification and most are qualified to NVQ Level 3. We have our own in house training provided through Aged Care TV & Skills For Care.

Our staff are paid to receive this training, so they are always improving.

“At Hopton, we found Mum a place where the environment was adapted to her needs, and the staff were always there to help.” – Hazel D

We're Here To Help

Our staff work short shifts & have flexible working hours. We will all become familiar faces in your Mum's new life.

It's a brilliant team & many of us have families themselves. We look after our residents as we would want our own loved ones to be looked after.

We pride ourselves on keeping our home spotless & clean. We also operate a personalised laundry and dry-cleaning service led by head housekeeper Alyson Doyle.

Hopton is a residential care home and is fully staffed 24 hours a day. Every room has been designed to offer maximum luxury and comfort, regardless of age or physical ability. Hopton has extra-wide corridors with hand rails. With specially designed bath & shower rooms.

Being looked after by someone you know and who knows you is really important at Hopton. Our staff will get to know your favourite meals and activities.

They will help your Mum feel comfortable at all times, just like you would at home. Hopton will feel like their home before they know it.

We also have our own maintenance team at the home to help with everything from putting up pictures, to arranging furniture, and gritting the paths in Winter.

50 of our 60 cottages are on the ground floor and residents will not need to use steps or ramps at any time.

Our lovely gardens have walkways constructed from non-slip decorative concrete so Mum can enjoy walks safely all year round.

We offer all the help your Mum needs. Including personal care, managing health concerns, as well as any support she needs to enjoy activities and social events.

We will work with you and other health professionals to develop a plan of care that is right for your Mum.

A Fun New Life

– Allow Mum to enjoy life once again

– See for yourself the difference Hopton can make

Residents at Hopton have so much fun in their new life. They can enjoy all the comforts they had at home in their own cottage style room and patio garden.

Residents will have their health issues addressed and managed by experts. We offer nutritious, homemade and delicious food. As well as Mum's favourites snacks and drinks any hour of the day.

Mum will feel so much better enjoying meals with friends again - No more microwave dinners alone! All our residents gain weight after admission to Hopton Cottage.

Something older people struggle with more than anything is boredom. Having witnessed the consequences for over 20 years I know how serious it can be. At Hopton, once a new resident has settled in we will work with them to find activities that they will enjoy.

Activities provided are exceptional and staff ensure all have the opportunity to participate.” – Helen W
We have two brilliant full-time activities coordinators who work closely with the whole team. This is a key part of our person-centred care service. Our residents are at the heart of shaping that service. Our wide range of activities include:

  • Group trips to the shops
  • Country walks
  • Reminiscence groups
  • Dominoes
  • Keep fit club
  • Knitting club
  • Musical performances - anything from classical to rock & roll.

Once someone feels welcome and respected, their health improves. They will have things to occupy their time again.

Their spirit is lifted and the change is amazing to witness.

It is without doubt the greatest joy of providing a service for me & my whole team.

I hope you agree your Mum deserves to enjoy life again. This is one of our founding principles here at Hopton.

So please consider us for your Mum, I know you'll be pleased you did!

So Mum really can have a fun new life at Hopton. A life where she can welcome their family without anxiety or the need for urgent attention.

You can enjoy quality time again with your Mum and the whole family are welcome at Hopton.

We love having children around who add to the family feel here. We even have colouring books so they can make a picture while visiting Gran!

So Many Fun Things To Do

We have a lot of fun at Hopton! We have dominoes, card tournaments & we play bingo. There's a weekly quiz night for families & residents alike but be warned: It gets very competitive!

Every Friday you'll get a visit from our dog - Dolly the labradoodle! Dolly will spend the day here; residents have the chance to spend time with her. Take her for walks in the garden & throw a ball with her.

Our residents are encouraged to go out each day to get some fresh air. We also have quite a list of clubs here at Hopton to cater to every interest of our residents.

Click below to start the gallery:

Don’t worry if Mum's preferred club is not among those above. You can simply speak to us about it, we can often arrange to have it added to the list. 

As you can see, there is never a dull moment at Hopton. Don't worry if all this seems a bit overwhelming. There's always the option to just sit back, relax & enjoy the peace & quiet.

“I think the variety and regularity of all the activities is excellent.
Mum seems to have got involved in many things.” – Mrs. Harrison

What’s On The Menu

We have a lovely menu & all our food is home-made each day by experienced chefs with high-quality fresh ingredients.

We generally serve all Mum’s favourite British classics. With menus varying subject to residents’ requests.

Our menus are nutritionally balanced & we cater for enriched diets or low-fat diets depending on need.

We also cater for those with specific dietary needs such as:

  • Diabetics
  • Residents who are lactose or gluten intolerant
  • Those with difficulties swallowing.
“The meals are of hotel standard and freshly cooked on site. Mum looks so much better now that someone is ensuring that she gets three excellent quality meals every day.” – Karen M

Fabulous Fridays

- Book a place & experience a day in the life of a Hopton resident!
- Treat yourself to a cut & blow dry in our salon
- Enjoy an entertainment packed evening

Did you know you can take us for a test drive?

Every Friday we give future residents a chance to enjoy a day here at Hopton Cottage.

The Friday starts with a tour at 11:30am with me personally on hand to answer any questions you have.

After the tour it’s lunchtime so Mum can enjoy tasty fish & chips in one of our lively dining areas. 

She then gets to chat with other residents & really get a feel for what it’s like to live here.

In the afternoon we treat your Mum to a cut, blow dry & manicure in our salon.

Later on there’s time to get involved in games or walks before enjoying our home baked cakes with tea!

In the evening we get everyone in a jolly mood with one of our Fab Friday shows including…

Why Location Matters

We understand how important location is to you. You may wish to be as close to your Mum or Dad as possible or you may want them to live out their days in their home town. Hopton Cottage is perfectly located 14 miles from Huddersfield and ¼ mile from Mirfield.

We are right in the heart of Mirfield community yet beautifully positioned near the River Calder and Hopton countryside. We have Hopton shops in walking distance and countryside views all around.

There is no one more important to you than your Mum or Dad and everyone’s Mum or Dad is unique.

At Hopton Cottage we specialise in looking after your mum for the person she is. We don’t try to change people, we love them for who they are just like you do!

Everyone Is Unique

At Hopton your Mum will have:

  • Her own ground floor cottage suite 
  • Her own garden
  • Her own postal address
  • Her own telephone number

At Hopton Cottage she can eat whatever she likes, whenever she likes, and if its not on the menu... Just Ask! And it soon will be. Our Head Chef will make sure of that!

At Hopton your Mum will shape the care she receives. She will have all the benefits of independence, but with the knowledge that reliable, skilled, and friendly carers who she knows are just seconds away, day or night.

Every resident at Hopton lives with like minded people and enjoys activities and hobbies they have loved for years, or sometimes new things they have just discovered! We don’t just talk about person centred care, we live and breathe it in everything we do!

Mum’s Exact Needs Met

3 Separate Areas Mean Your Mum Gets Care Tailored For Her
– Greenway Cottages – Mentally Alert
– Woodend Cottages – Becoming Forgetful
– Riverside Cottages – Dementia

 

Here at Hopton Cottage Care Home we have a motto:

Our residents do not live in our
workplace, we work in their homes

 

We pride ourselves in providing a first-class service, while Mum makes herself at home in a luxury purpose-built environment.

We have 3 seperate & homely neighbourhoods where our residents can get to know each other. Our unique design has been built on 20 years of experience of looking after people.

“I always feel very welcome & I am very comfortable when visiting mum in her new home. Her room is bright, spacious, well kept & the laundry service is excellent.” – Kathryn P

Quality Accommodation

Our cottage suites will enable Mum to live in great comfort and luxury within a lovely safe community of like-minded people. Lovely supportive care-staff are on hand 24 hours a day to help Mum keep her independence and dignity in her later years.

Our rooms have small double beds to ensure your Mum’s comfort. With oak furniture throughout & of course the option to personalise Mum’s room as much as she likes.

The whole building is filled by natural light & complimented the highest quality fixtures & fittings.

WiFi is available in all our lounges & Mum has the option to have her own internet connection & personal phone fitted.

Full digital TVs with DVD Players are provided in each room. With all the sports & any other pay channels she wants.

Our maintenance team will keep her room warm, well-lit & address any issues she has straight away.

Our lounges are spacious yet homely and there are several other sitting areas for Mum to relax in.

There is lots of space throughout the building to wander about freely & stretch her legs throughout the winter months.

An Independent Life

Our residents live happily & enjoy independence in their cottage. They have care support on hand whenever they need it.

She can relax while we take care of all her cooking, medication, cleaning & laundry.

Mum will be free to spend time doing things she enjoys.

This works very well for people who feel their independence is important but for whom home-based care packages are no longer effective.

Our residents maintain their self-esteem & their identity, which keeps their spirits up.

We’ve put a lot of thought into designing the perfect care home to meet all our residents’ individual needs. Hopton is unique in this respect. So if you value more specialised care for your Mum then don’t hesistate to get in touch.

The Truth About What Happens When People Come Into Care ‘Too Soon’

– No more accepting the diminished appeal of living alone
– Have the leisure of choosing the best home

In a moment I'll go into detail about what can happen when someone comes into care early, but first I want to touch on a delicate point that is sometimes blocked out of mind.
Everyone likes to live in their own home. I do; I’m sure you do too. However, for older people the experience can often lose its appeal as their health declines.

Older people living alone can suffer from:

  • Poor physical health
  • Loneliness
  • Depression
  • A lack of structure in their day
  • Poor diet and fluid intake

What often happens then is some kind of crisis - a fall, a hospital admission...

If they have memory problems they may be putting themselves at risk. They may be contacting family members around the clock out of sheer anxiety.

You then may need to find a suitable care home for your Mum in an urgent fashion. This will limit your choices; choosing the wrong care home could prove even more detrimental for her overall health going forward.

Often their spouse may have died. While they may always have their family, they may still feel lonely or isolated. Folks entering their late 80s will notice their social groups decline.

“We were delighted when mum settled easily and happily into her new home. Mum seems to have got involved in many things.” – Kathryn P.

So can it be a problem when people come into a care home too soon? In short, no. This is a common concern, with a lot of guilt surrounding it. But let me clear up some important points about this.

It is far better to find a care home that both you & your Mum will love. When your Mum comes into care at this early stage she gets looked after properly. The care she receives at home can be inconsistent and unreliable. Often with 2 or 3 people trying to manage several different needs. It's messy & Mum's priorities get missed.

At Hopton Cottage we will speak directly with Mum's GP, District Nurses or Hospital Services to make sure all her physical care needs are sorted quickly & easily.

For Mum's mental health needs we will speak directly with Memory Services & Community Mental Health Services so you will have nothing to worry about. The right people help Mum in the right way at the right time.

We have skilled care managers who can identify health problems & help them to be addressed with access to relevant services. They can then manage this going forward with family involvement.

Mum will have lovely care staff who check up on them regularly and will help in any way needed. They see the same staff week in, week out who they will get to know and trust. They become part of the home and are loved by their fellow residents and staff alike.

If you can see why it's so important to get your Mum into the right care home earlier rather than later, then please consider Hopton Cottage Care Home. I know you'll be making a smart move.

Want Only The Best For Mum?

Discover Why CQC Rated Us Safe, Effective, Caring, Responsive & Well-Led


Fact: No Care Home is Rated Higher in West Yorkshire

Want Only The Best For Mum?

In March 2021, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) – the independent regulator of Health and Social Care in England – awarded our care home with an impressive “Overall Good” score.

The 5 categories and their respective scores are:

Safe – Good

People told the CQC they felt safe in our service.

Effective – Good

The CQC observed that our staff knew the people who they were supporting well.

Caring – Good

Residents & relatives spoke highly of our staff & told the CQC that they were caring.

Responsive – Outstanding

The CQC remarked that our care plans were detailed & reflected people’s preferences, choices & personal histories.

Well-led – Good

Our staff told the CQC that they were supported by the registered manager & they felt the service was well led.

“Everybody is so warm, caring, upbeat & can’t do enough to help. I always feel so welcome. Even our dog is welcome too.” – Mrs. Harrison

Our overall good rating is a massive achievement that we're extremely proud of. Especially as we are one of the very few local care homes that meet this standard.

Hands up! We're blowing our own trumpet here. In case you haven't read our CQC report, I want to stress how important it is. There is a treasure trove of information for you to read through.

So to save you some time, I've copied the important parts for you below. These highlight essential info that people often miss...

Staff on Hand 24hrs to Provide Safety & Reassurance to your Mum

"Staff were very kind & attentive. We overheard a member of staff ask a person if they were okay. The person did not hear the carer properly. The carer stopped & repeated the question again to the person & waited for them to answer.

This showed a genuine interest in the person's welfare. We observed another person was becoming tearful in one of the lounge areas. Staff immediately went to reassure the person & their mood soon lifted as a result." - CQC Inspector

"Appropriate information was shared between staff at shift handovers, both in a written & verbal format.

A 'traffic light' system had been introduced, which highlighted people who may be at risk of falls and who may require closer observations for example.

This had resulted in a significant reduction in the number of falls being recorded." - CQC Inspector

 

Our Home is a Caring, Professional & Well-Run Establishment

 

"People told us they felt the home was well led. One person said, "All the managers & staff are approachable.

There is nothing that [name removed by CQC] will not do for you." Another person said: "My son chose this home. He said the manager was really nice... He didn't do them justice."

Another person said: "The managers have made it clear that if we have any concerns we must tell them."

A relative told us: "The home is run to an excellent standard. There is no room for improvement as far as I can see." - CQC Inspector

Hopton Cottage ONLY Employ Staff who are Genuinely Positive & Enjoy Bonding with Older People

Throughout the inspection we heard & saw many positive, caring interactions between staff & people who lived at the home. It was clear staff had time to spend talking and interacting with people.

We observed a carer speaking to a person and the carer knelt down to the person's level. The person appeared completely at ease with the member of staff. Friendly chatter was evident, but staff also retained the appropriate level of professionalism. There was a pleasant atmosphere." - CQC Inspector
