Glen Rosa & Kitwood House


Location and contact details

24 Grove Road, Ilkley, LS29 9PH

Glen Rosa was opened in 1947. It provides 47 places for older people requiring residential or dementia care.

The George Martin Trust provided grants for the building of the Kitwood extension in 2000. This extension is home to 14 residents living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and is named after Professor Tom Kitwood, whose work on dementia has influenced the work throughout MHA’s specialist dementia units.

Kitwood insisted that those who live with dementia need to be treated as full human beings. A sense of personhood, he believed, is what one human being is able to give another within a relationship. Kitwood’s model of care stressed the need for sensitive listening and close observation in order that those with dementia and their carers can truly communicate. It also recognises the importance of experiencing a sense of belonging and useful activity. Glen Rosa honours this approach not only in its name but in its practice too.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

Glen Rosa offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.
