The new Mossdale Residence care home located in Burnholme will provide high-quality residential, nursing and dementia care for up to eighty residents. It will also create new jobs for the local community, all of which will benefit from HC-One’s multi-award-winning learning and development programme, with roles across care, nursing, property maintenance, housekeeping and food service.
The ribbon cutting ceremony was held on the 15th December 2020 to mark the completion with only six attendees, due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Rt Hon the Lord Mayor of York, Councillor Janet Looker attended to officially open the home and commented: “I declare this home well and truly open, I bless all who work and come to live here, may it be a very happy place to be.”

John Ransford, Executive Director at HC-One, said: “We have been working for five years alongside York City council to create a new luxury care home in York, and we are extremely pleased with the effort that has gone into this, especially given the challenges this year has brought due to Covid-19. We are all excited to welcome our first Residents in January 2021.”
The care home is set to feature a dedicated cinema room, a bar, a hair and beauty salon, a hobby and crafts room, and a range of lounge, dining and outdoor terrace spaces, all of which Residents can benefit from.
