Holmehurst is an established residential care home currently operating with 19 bedrooms, 2 of which have been designated for double occupancy and is situated on a private road in the Denton Holme area of Carlisle.

The home has been transformed over the past 5 years and the improvements continue with 3 new large bedrooms built to a high specification. All the rooms are appointed to a high standard and the 2 large lounges and dining room/conservatory have also been extensively updated. For assisted bathing we have an updated bathroom on the ground floor along with a purpose built wet room on the first and second floor. There has also recently been an addition of a stair lift to supplement the lift for disabled access.

Holmehurst has been operating as a residential care home for 60 years and we benefit from a great team of very loyal staff with a low turnover meaning that residents get a continuity of care from familiar well-trained staff.

To ensure that our staff and residents are safe we constantly update and renovate our home. We operate an Aid Call (Nurse call) system throughout the home, which helps alert our carers and enables them to monitor our residents at all times. We have also integrated a new fire safety system, which was implemented in September 2020.

Holmehurst provides services to the following categories of resident:

  • Long term care services for both male and female over 65 years
  • Dementia
  • Physical Disability
  • Terminally Ill
  • Sensory Impairment
  • Old age (not falling within any of the above categories)
