Holderness House, once the home of the late Rt Hon T R Ferens, is now a residential home for ladies.
The historic house, set in six and a half acres of gardens and woodland, caters for up to 33 ladies and is supported by a Charitable Trust which was set up in 1930 according to the Will of Mr Ferens.
The House is situated on the north side of Holderness Road, Hull and is adjacent to The Garden Village and in close proximity to local shops, churches and is on a regular bus route.
The Manager of Holderness House, together with her skilled and caring staff, deals with the day to day running of the home. An on-going training programme is in place and Holderness House has achieved parts A & B of the Quality Development Scheme from the Commission for Social Care Inspection.
Financial matters are dealt with by the Board of Trustees and a Ladies Committee meet monthly to ensure that Holderness House is a comfortable home in which to live.
Applicants are given a trial period of four weeks before they take up permanent residence, this gives both parties a chance to assess each other.
