YOURLIFE MANAGEMENT SERVICES
We understand that to provide excellent customer service we need outstanding people. That’s why we employ and train the team who oversee Balshaw Court. All YourLife staff must provide an enhanced certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) before they commence work at the development.
It’s also reassuring to know that the Care Quality Commission (CQC) regulates YourLife. The Estates Manager who leads the team is personally registered with the Commission.
Yourlife are always there when and if you need them.
A TEAM YOU CAN TRUST
You can trust in the provision of excellent personal care and management from our very own team, enabling you to continue to live independently.
YourLife brings you professional service to your own home, providing flexible personal, domestic and social care support packages, tailored entirely to suit your requirements.
With an extensive assortment of services on offer – from help with grocery shopping to someone accompanying you to a doctors’ or hospital appointment – you might also want to book additional time. This is charged in 15-minute increments, so you only ever pay for the support you need.
Your service charge already includes one hours’ domesticassistance every week. You can use this time for help with a range of chores, from housework to shopping for groceries, leaving you more time to do the things you enjoy.
If you would like a little more help around your apartment you can add more time, for an additional charge.
If required, we can help you with services such as going to bed and getting up in the morning, help with medication prompting and convalescence care. There’s a whole host of services on offer.
If you think you would like to take advantage of these services, your Sales Consultant can arrange a private, confidential Wellbeing Assessment with the Estates Manager, so you can be sure you have all the care and support you need from the moment you move in.
If you want to take a shopping trip or have an evening at the theatre, one of our team will be happy to assist you.
The team can take care of all your laundry requirements, returning your items washed, dried and ironed in 24 hours.

Cottingham also hosts many annual events,
including a folk festival, food and drink
festival, a Christmas festival and the much-loved
Scarecrow Hunt. There’s lots on offer
beyond the village too.
Cottingham Parks Golf and Leisure Club is
less than three miles away. Skidby Windmill
is always worth a visit too. This working
windmill offers magnificent views over the
rolling Yorkshire Wolds. With its fascinating
interactive exhibits, it’s always a hit with
children and adults alike.
With an Aldi on the doorstep, the weekly
shop couldn’t be any easier. Walk further
into the village and you'll find a vibrant selection of local independent
businesses as well as major high street brands.
You’ll also find pubs, several banks, a Post
Office and medical centre.
It doesn’t take long to understand why
people are drawn to Cottingham in the East
Riding of Yorkshire - direct rail links to Hull, Scarborough and
Bridlington and regular bus service which operates in and around Cottingham.
The M62 is close by and other good road connections offering access to many towns and cities including York and the Yorkshire coast
