About Daniel Yorath House

Daniel Yorath House is a neurological centre based in Leeds where people initially come for a 12-week assessment period, where they begin a rehabilitation period to support their recovery. Recovery is then reviewed and may be extended in further 12-week periods to allow for further rehabilitation to be supported.


The neurological centre comprises eighteen ensuite bedrooms, six with full bariatric tracking hoists. There is also a specialist-assisted bathroom.

Additionally, there is a ‘bungalow’ which comprises of a living area, kitchen area and bedroom with ensuite to allow people we support the opportunity to live in an environment with increased independence.

We have several specialist assessment and therapy rooms, a fully equipped physio gym and a large private garden to aid recovery.

Our rehabilitation models

The programme may include:

  • Support for personal, social, and domestic skills
  • Guided leisure time
  • Behavioural management

  • Vocational support and training

The people we support are actively involved in reviewing their progress against agreed outcomes, and we promote the involvement of families in the rehabilitation process. Home leave is encouraged wherever possible.

Becoming more independent
