Our Care Home at Wakefield

The Croft is a registered care home specialising in providing full time residential care and support for twenty-nine older people. We offer a truly ‘home from home’ experience within our very pleasant family owned home.

The Croft is familiar to many local people, having been the old doctor’s house, and still retains the original oak panelling, oak fire surround and staircase.


The Croft is situated about ½ mile from the centre of Normanton, with the towns of Castleford and Pontefract close by. The local bus service is good and the home is on a bus route.

Residential Care:
Residential Care can appear frightening to people; at The Croft we aim to take the fear away by providing high quality caring staff who understand your needs.
In keeping with our family run home, all meals are home cooked and prepared by our dedicated, trained kitchen staff and are served at times that are convenient to you. A varied daily menu of fresh, nutritious food is offered, with special dietary or cultural needs also catered for. Choice is offered at every meal. Snacks and drinks are available at all times.
Respite Care:
Why not just come in for a few days now and again for a short break and see whether you like it or not? It is an opportunity for your carers and family members to have a short break too!
Day Care:
Day Care is another service that the home offers. An opportunity to come in for the day or just a few hours to enjoy the company of other like minded people, to take a bath or just to relax in comfortable and safe surroundings.
Enjoy a bedroom which is your own and personalise it as you would want. We have twenty seven single bedrooms and one double bedroom. Some of the rooms have en-suite facilities.
