Cymar House is a very comfortable and homely care home for the elderly on the outskirts of Castleford, was originally a detached vicarage in the 1940s.
We are registered for 25 residents, for both residential and dementia care and the home is very bright and cheerful offering a very warm welcome to all.
Situated on one of the main roads into Castleford, Cymar House is extremely easy for visitors to get to by either car or bus. Most of our rooms are en-suite, and the home is comfortable and well maintained. We have a pleasant enclosed private garden and ten car parking spaces, however there are additional parking areas available nearby.
Our food is tasty a choice of menu available at every mealtime. We offer an excellent range of individually prepared and nutritionally balanced texture modified meals for residents who have swallowing difficulties and an extensive range of snacks and drinks is available at all times. When asked about the food at Cymar one of our residents recently said, “The food is lovely, there’s plenty of it and lots of choice.”
Visitors are welcome at any time and if you would like to come and have a meal with your loved-one just let us know.
The information in the ‘types of care’ section of our website is general, and gives an example of some of the conditions and illnesses that we have experience with, however it is by no means exhaustive. In addition it is not uncommon for older people to experience more than one illness- for example a person with dementia may also suffer from arthritis, or have had a stroke.
Each person is an individual with different requirements, and all potential residents are fully assessed to ensure that we are able to meet their individual needs before we offer a placement.
With our experienced care team, we are able to care for people living with many different types of illnesses and conditions. Our staff are well trained and our buildings are designed to help residents to maintain their independence as much as possible. All of our homes have at least one passenger lift and are fully equipped in terms of safety, from individual call buzzers to specialised individual call systems for people who are unable to use their call buzzers.
All of our homes have both communal and quieter, more private spaces for our residents to enjoy, and benefit from many types of aids and adaptations to help our residents live as full and independent a life as possible.
The staff are very kind hearted and treat me with respect and love. They’re always happy to help- the staff here are really good.

We regularly invite local entertainers to come to Cymar House as well as having a full schedule of activities. For residents who prefer to take things a little easier we have numerous lounges – some with large screen TVs, a quiet lounge and a secluded garden with a quiet sitting out area for those lovely sunny British Summers! We often have a ‘house dog’ at Cymar, who belongs to a member of staff and he loves to snuggle our residents.
