Lister House

Lister House in Ripon is one of The Royal British Legion’s Care Homes, with a specialist Dementia care wing and places for younger people who could benefit from our specialist care and rehabilitation facilities. Like every one of the Legion's Care Homes, we are exclusive to ex-Service people and their dependents.

Lister House is located in the historic town of Ripon in beautiful North Yorkshire. It is one of the best homes of its type in the country. Spacious and comfortable, it's somewhere our residents can feel is their real home, for as long as they are with us.

Lister House has 60 en suite bedrooms in the main building, plus 16 en suite rooms in our dementia care wing named the Colsterdale Unit. Experienced, registered nurses and a dedicated team of care assistants provide 24-hour care.

For individuals with a Service or ex-Service connection living in the local community, Lister House can also provide sessional physiotherapy and hydrotherapy at our hydrotherapy unit. This is by appointment on a day-to-day basis.

To support the Legion's community of carers, we also provide day care, five days per week within our dedicated day care unit.
