Harrogate became established in the late nineteenth century as a Spa town and has a history of providing quality health care in a pleasant environment. Harrogate has retained much of the original character of the Spa. The town is renowned as a floral town with two major flower shows and is also the home for the Great Yorkshire Show. It is now a major centre for conferences, exhibitions and tourism. Harrogate is situated at the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales. This vibrant community has a wealth of amenities to offer in a beautiful setting.
BriardeneBriardene is a spacious Victorian style semi-detached house, with accommodation for 10 residents and also incorporates the adjoining ground floor flat accommodating a further three residents in a semi independent unit. It is located close to Harrogate town centre. Briardene provides a quality service for people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and some challenging behaviour. The house is ideally situated close to many local provisions and places of interest to our client group such as the local Gateway, PHAB and The Junction as well as being close to the shopping centre, Asda, the cinema and the railway and bus stations. We also feel it is important that Briardene remains a homely environment where the residents can feel at home. Over the years we have put a great deal of effort into this by encouraging the residents to make Briardene their home. Although the rooms are fully furnished residents can choose the decoration for their own room, bring along their own furniture, have input into how the communal areas are decorated.
