Daily Life

We extend a warm welcome to family and friends to visit at any time, attend special events and to be a part of the home. At Craven Nursing Home we want you to be able to enjoy the things that are important to you. Our experienced Activities Team actively encourage and support residents to pursue their own interests and hobbies.

A varied calendar of activities ranging from musical entertainment, arts and crafts, table games and coffee mornings is provided along with seasonal events and entertainment. Our annual summer garden party is a firm favourite with our residents. Organised outings are planned throughout the year with a few reoccurring popular events such as our boat trip on the Leeds to Liverpool canal and a tour of the Christmas lights in Skipton and Ilkley.

In addition, our team is involved in an innovative scheme which will see care homes from across the Craven district working together to enhance the social opportunities available for our residents.


Mealtimes are an important part of daily life, our chefs carefully prepare a different menu for each day of the week to ensure there is lots of variety for our residents to enjoy. All our meals are freshly prepared in-house allowing our chefs to create delicious, nutritionally balanced meals. We are used to catering for a variety of dietary preferences and our chefs work hard to satisfy residents’ needs.

With three spacious, well designed, dinning areas our residents can relax and enjoy their dining experience in the company of others. Should you prefer, meals can be served in your own room. At Craven Nursing Home we adopt a ‘food first’ approach to nutrition, working with individuals to cater for special requirements and cultural preferences. A choice of hot and cold refreshments is available throughout the day with delicious homemade baking freshly prepared daily.
