Moving into a care home is a big thing and we never lose sight of that. We work with our residents and their families to make the transition as easy and comfortable as possible, building the confidence that their needs, personal and emotional, are going to be met with us.

Normanby House is our residents’ home and it is our privilege to look after them and to care for them here, helping to preserve and enhance their happiness, dignity and independence. 

People comment on how accessible the home is and how families can come in at any time to see their loved ones – just, as it should be, a home from home. We always work with the resident’s family to give them the support they need at what can be a stressful time for them too.

The care we offer begins with the resident’s care plan, carefully drawn up with the resident, their family and input from health professionals. This gives us a start in our journey to get to know our residents as individuals – what they did as a job, what family they have and, most importantly, what they like to do. Our care is as personal and as individual as we can make it, so we like to know our residents’ likes and dislikes – when they like to get up, what they like for breakfast, do they like activities and so on – every detail is important.

Whilst all our carers work to care for all our residents, each resident will have a member of staff allocated to them each day to manage their care throughout that day, ensuring consistency and continuity of care and anticipating their needs and wishes. They are also available for valuable one-to-one time with the resident too.

Our staff are passionate about the care they offer, many have been with us for many years – some 15, 20 years or more – so we have a wealth of experience and expertise. They are highly trained, passionate and motivated and we appreciate and value their hard work and commitment. We have a strong, settled and happy team, with good staff retention and work in a positive atmosphere where we are proud of the care we offer.

Staff get a lot from the relationships that they build with the residents and it is that relationship building that is key to our care. We see the residents as part of our family and build warm, loving relationships between staff and residents within the home. It is our pleasure and privilege to be on this part of our residents’ journey with them. We believe in care with a smile and care with a cuddle.

CQC Report


Meet the Team


Read the latest report on our home provided by our inspection body the Care Quality Commission.

Normanby House is a modern, well-equipped and purpose-built care home in a quiet cul-de-sac a stone’s throw from Scarborough town centre. With a pleasant and open garden area and set back from other buildings, Normanby House is a little oasis of calm and serenity for our residents to enjoy this new stage of their lives.

All our pleasant, light and airy bedrooms are ensuite and comfortable and we work with the residents to help them personalise them, making them more homely.

Visitors always comment on our beautiful dining room. With its wall-sized mural of Scarborough it is often a hub of activity, with residents enjoying social mealtimes with fellow residents and our kitchen staff who are on hand to enjoy a chat and a laugh thanks to the close proximity of the kitchen itself. 

They ensure that all our residents enjoy delicious, home-cooked and nutritious food that is tailored to our residents’ likes, dislikes and dietary needs. We are flexible about mealtimes and residents can eat what they like, when and where they wish – just as they would at home.

We have a large and pleasant lounge where our residents can enjoy both group and individual games and activities, again according to their own choice and wishes.

At Normanby House we place great importance on providing our residents with the opportunity to join in and enjoy as many activities as they would like. We know how crucial it is to our residents’ happiness and mental and physical health that they stay as active and stimulated as possible.

There are many things to do for those residents who want to join in – from round-the-table arts and crafts to bingo, music sessions and outings in one of the care group’s minibuses.

Typically, it will be things like arts and crafts, nail painting or completing the resident’s memory book – a pictorial record of previous activities – during the mornings and more expansive activities, like a quiz, bingo, music or a trip in the minibus, during afternoons. The home also welcomes visiting musicians and other visitors, like those bringing in pets or birds of prey, for example. Sometimes, in the evenings, residents will enjoy a cheese and wine evening or a movie night. There is also ample time for one-to-one time with our staff and our doors are always open for visitors.

We are proud of our home and always look forward to welcoming new residents and visitors to the Saint Cecilia’s family.

Say hello to some of the key members of staff at our home.
