Welcome to Dovehaven Residential Home

At Dovehaven Residential Home, we provide the highest quality residential care Southport has to offer.

Loving referred to as 'The Rest Home' our home is a beautifully converted Victorian villa, ideally located for those who like to be 'out and about' between Lord Street and Hesketh Park. The rooms have beautiful high ceilings and with the home decorated to a very high standard, our residents feel very comfortable and right at home.

A unique feature of the home is the resident's kitchen. This functional space is dedicated to our residents who are receiving reablement care at the Dovehaven Residential Home. The kitchen is fitted with a microwave, sink, kettle, and washing machine and is designed to support with resident's journeys back to independent living.

The lounge leads into to a large conservatory, ensuring that the residents can enjoy bright and spacious accommodation. With access out onto the patio and the garden, our dining room is always beautifully set for the next meal, the room is ideal for socialising or eating and enjoying your own company.

Private bedrooms vary in size and aspect and we very much encourage our residents to personalise their rooms with their own special items, to ensure that it feel just like home.

All our residents benefit from their own care plan, tailored specifically for them. This allows us to build care delivery around their preferences, lifestyles and routines. Everything we do is driven by this person centred approach, working together with friends and family to ensure the care experience is as expected and aims to help residents stay healthy, happy and safe.

As a residential care home, Dovehaven Rest Home is perfectly suited for individuals requiring help and support with day to day activities.

Those who live with us are encouraged to take part in the varied daily activities that are offered in the home. Our activity coordinator is dedicated to ensuring that residents activities are designed to engage people's attention and interest.

All Dovehaven care homes use 'Oomph! On Demand' to support resident exercise, hobbies, themed days and personal interests.

Our residents feel at home in our dining room. With access and views of the garden and the friendliest of atmospheres, all mealtimes are happy and sociable occasions.

Fruit, drinks and snacks are freely available, all day, every day from the servery. For those residents receiving reablement care, a help-yourself breakfast bar is also available with a selection of cereals, fruit and jams. This is perfect for residents who are on a journey back to independent living.

Our tables are beautifully set and the daily menu offers a variety of delicious, home cooked, dishes at each mealtime. From breakfast and lunch to afternoon tea and dinner, our experienced chef ensures the menu is varied, tempting and reflects residents preferences.

We also enjoy hosting various food related events throughout the year. There is no doubt that the fun of a themed event which is reflected in the menu of the day, gives our residents the opportunity to eat some very enjoyable traditional meals but also try something a little different.

Dining is a very important part of the daily life in our home and the chef receives many compliments!
