You’ll find us in Sowerby Bridge, a small town near to Halifax. Surrounded by five acres of gardens, our home is close to a range of local amenities including restaurants, shops, pubs and cafes, as well as a library and a sports centre. We’re also a short distance from local beauty spots including the Pennine Way and the Calder Way.

Dining choices

We make sure mealtimes can be enjoyed by everyone. Our menus are planned by our residents and staff, and special diets are always catered for by our chef.

Enjoy activities

We also organise regular visits to the theatre, cinema, bowling alley, museums and to sporting events. You’ll have the chance to be social, get creative or enjoy exercise — you choose. 

Group activities aren’t for everyone and you might just want to do things on your own. If so, we can help. If you need support, one option is to find a volunteer to come along with you. 

Whatever activities you’d like to do, you can always talk to one of our team about the different choices available to you.

Anne's story

White Window resident Anne Preece‘My name is Anne and I’ve lived at White Windows for five years.

‘It was a bit scary when I first came here as I didn’t know what it would be like. But it’s got easier as time’s gone on and I really like living here now. I get on with everyone and the staff are absolutely brilliant. 

‘I feel like you’ve got plenty of choice here. You can get on with what you want to do. On Thursdays we usually go somewhere as a group.

‘Sometimes we go to Harrogate or the horse racing. I also go to a day centre where I can take part in different activities. I like getting out so I’m not stuck inside all day.’
