‘Laughter is the best medicine. It creates a sense of safety and belonging.’
We foster a real sense of fun and inclusion and encourage everyone to get involved in life at the home. Working with our Service users every day, our care team and activities co-ordinator comes to understand their wants and needs, and creates a holistic weekly plan to nurture mind, body and soul and promote physical, cognitive, emotional, sensory and social wellbeing.
We do have the much-loved, chaotic bingo hour, but beyond that our Service users can look forward to everything from weekly visits from entertainers and people who live or work in the local community, Sefton Active, indoor cinema and more. Staff will interact with gardening skills, to baking, flower-arranging, painting, writing, reading and any number of musical activities. We have an activities unit within the vicinity of our beautiful garden, where Service users can use our shop or have a game of table tennis or pool.

Just like every family, our meal table is the caring heart of our home. We understand the importance of a friendly and stimulating experience; not to mention the pleasure of a mealtime with delicious, nutritious food, shared with people you know and love.
In our home, mealtimes are one of the main moments in the day when the Service users meet as a complete community; the verbal exchanges and laughter often overheard from the dining room indicate the clear pleasure and enjoyment many service users experience from this. But like everything it is all down to personal choice; some Service users prefer the option to dine alone or in the company of a dear friend in a quieter setting or in the privacy of their own room.
