When built in the early 19th Century, Whitwood House stood alone surrounded by fields. Since then the Castleford district of Whitwood has grown around it into an attractive residential area and the extended Whitwood House has become an integral part of the community.
The original building has been converted into a six-bedroom house, with spacious rooms that create a very comfortable and relaxing environment.
The more recent extension, also comprising six bedrooms, is as spacious as the original house and, although linked to it, operates as a separate home. This ensures that service users can feel comfortable in a homely environment.
The services have excellent contact with neighbours and local community. To the rear of the property, the Coach House, converted from the original carriage and stabling block, has four bedrooms, in addition to domestic living accommodation.
Wayne Barker, our registered manager at Whitwood House, joined the company as a residential support worker in 2000. This move for Wayne was a significant career change and he quickly progressed through the organisation.
Wayne has drive, determination and a ‘hands on’ approach, and his natural ability to forward think, ensures that the service is continually striving for and achieving improvements in its delivery of care.
Wayne is supported in the delivery of the service by Deputy Manager, Sam Hall who has been with the organisation in various roles for six years. Sam’s drive and determination to improve the lives of all our service users is clearly evident and wholly underpins the ethos of the care we provide.
Whitwood House has a dynamic and responsive staff team which means we are able to offer truly personalised and individual packages of careView floorplans
