Becoming a Yorkshire Village resident brings with it a whole new level of respect, dignity and unconditional love. You won’t hear these words much in the Assisted Living World. We’re here to change that.
Our residents aren’t just patients, customers, or names on a chart. They are part of the Yorkshire Village extended family. When we say family matters, that means we go above and beyond high-tech solutions and corporate playbooks. We try and succeed in providing happiness.
We start by treating our staff like family. We listen to their concerns, we respect their needs, and we always put people before profits.
Why? Because when we show our people, we care about them, they extend that circle of care to your loved ones. By looking out for one another, we build a community that cares. For all of us, including your family. That’s what being The Community that Cares is all about.
A community that caters to individuals and individual needs
Our staff is extremely well-trained and highly-experienced, ensuring that they can properly care for your loved one. Our associates also continue their education throughout the year, and they participate in ongoing in-service training and seminars.
Our Caring and Helpful Staff
Our exceptional staff is always willing to go above and beyond for residents. For our associates, this opportunity to serve others is more than a job — it’s a passion. Everyone working at Yorkshire Village is very involved in the day-to-day lives of our residents, helping create an enriching and caring experience for them.
The Yorkshire Village Story
The passion and dedication you notice right away at Yorkshire Village are rooted all the way in Yorkshire, England. Kathy Taylor hails from Yorkshire, England where she was an admired geriatric care specialist. She and her husband, Colin Taylor, came to California in the 1970’s.
At first, Kathy was excited to work in advanced geriatric care in the USA. But she became frustrated in her same profession upon arriving in the USA. Kathy felt the quality of eldercare provided in the USA was too impersonal and was always looking out for the almighty corporate bottom line instead of looking out for the person needing care.
After a lot of thought and hard work, She and her husband Colin opened up a very individualized and affordable six bed Assisted Living where Kathy knew she could give residents the respect and help they deserved. When residents’ families saw how much happier and better their loved ones fared at Kathy and Colin’s Assisted Living, it was a no-brainer to expand so more people could benefit from the kind of care Kathy and her staff were determined to provide.
The level of care and dedication The Taylors instituted with the creation of Yorkshire Village remains more than alive and well in Hemet, California. The mission continues with a new generation of care and caregivers dedicated to continue and build on The Taylors original vision.

Words seem so inadequate to express our deepest gratitude for the tender, loving, wonderful care and concern given to our Mom and family. We know that your job sometimes is very difficult but you ALL have truly made a difference in so many lives. Thank you for your labors of love. Keep up the amazing work.
I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation for the entire Yorkshire House staff. Mom was with you for five and a half years, Dad for three years before that – and every thought is a happy moment. The Christmas parties, musical programs, laughter during bingo, walking in the park, and so many others.
As the years passed and Mom’s health declined, you knew exactly what she needed and made sure it was provided for her. You always brought a smile to her face and put her at ease, even when she couldn’t remember who we were. I can’t count the times I said thank you, sometimes through the tears, but I know it can never be said enough.
I just want to thank all of you for the help and love you gave Ann, and the kindness and support you gave my family. God bless all of you, I love you all and can’t even begin to express how much you all mean to our family.
Our family want to thank you for the truly wonderful care that you have given John, our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather. We know that what you do is truly an amazing gift, for which we will always be grateful.
You have our heartfelt gratitude for the excellent care our father experienced during his time at Yorkshire House. He was happier than we could have imagined. From the day he moved in it surprised him how much he enjoyed his life “in a home”. It wasn’t long before he truly considered it to be his home and couldn’t imagine being anywhere else.
Needing help isn’t easy for a proud Marine like our father. He was always given the highest standard of care with respect and dignity. You should be very proud of the work you do at Yorkshire House. God bless you always.
