Friends of Amarna House

Rosetta Way, York, North Yorkshire, YO26 5RN

The Friends of Amarna House support the work of the home.  Situated in the heart of a residential community in the historic city of York. Amarna House is an 80 bedded care home offering a range of care including Dementia, Nursing and Residential care.

The Friends aim to improve the quality of life of the residents of the care home by working with staff, residents and relatives.

The Friends of Amarna House are looking to develop services on the site. We have found that this is particularly valued by some residents who through deteriorating health do not have the confidence to come out of their rooms. Alongside this we support the care homes’ activities’ coordinators by providing extra pairs of hands during organised activity sessions and outings.
