Goldcrest House is a 16 bedded residential care home based in Goole East Yorkshire. The home is a specialist service designed to meet the need of adults on the Autistic Spectrum.
Situated on Boothferry Road, Goldcrest House provides residential care to adults over the age of 18, whose primary need is due to autism. We can also meet the needs of service users who have additional difficulties, including those with general developing disabilities and those with a history of behaviours that have challenged other services.
Potential service users who do not have a diagnosis of autism but who would benefit from a living and developing environment that has been designed to cater for those with autism will also be considered for admission. We are registered with the NAS and will consider emergency admissions.
The House provides long-term, integrated, specialist day and residential care and after undergoing a major transformation earlier this year, it continues to go from strength to strength.
Recently a new bespoke Gymnasium / Leisure Complex was officially opened within the grounds of the home by Goole MP Andrew Percy. This facility is also used for functions and staff training. it has enhanced our service considerably.
The leisure complex not only consists of cardiovascular gym equipment, including a rowing machine, cross trainer, treadmill and exercise bike, but also has showering facilities, an attached kitchenette / coffee shop, table tennis, pool table, darts, weights and a punch bag and gloves. It is used not only by our service users, but also by our staff which promotes a great community atmosphere.
The home has a Programme Facilitator whose role is to facilitate a 9-5 activity/ educational programme, designed to meet each service user’s personal needs.
The Registered Manager of Goldcrest House, Ralph Parish said: “The service users and staff think the new leisure complex is absolutely marvellous, it will be used especially during the winter nights. It will also be used within the 9-5 activity programme, and with the other activities that we facilitate.
“Everyone associated with Goldcrest House is going to benefit from the complex, therefore hopefully creating a healthier group of service users and staff team.” The new facilities will also enable Goldcrest to network with other care homes in the area, where they will come along to enjoy the facilities with our service users.
The kitchen is large, modern, well stocked and is a favourite place for both staff and service users. It is used by the Home’s baking activity co-ordinator who supports our service users to bake delicious buns, cake and savoury food items.

The home offers Holistic Therapy to all of our service users. This therapy has proved to be very beneficial to our service users on the Autistic Spectrum. Here Trish Patrickson, our ‘in house’ therapist, creates a relaxed session of various therapies in our bespoke snoozalam.
The company is dedicated to supporting, extending and developing each person’s skills and experiences throughout their time with us and providing opportunities to develop and practice community presence.
Naturally all our services users have their own room. The recent full renovation of the house included all the bedrooms which now feature tasteful and modern furniture and high tech toys and gadgets.
