Welcome to Manchester House

Manchester House is one of Southport's finest Victorian residences, which overlooks Hesketh Park. Located in the historic town of Southport, the home is close to the town centre and promenade.

The home offers a range of specialist nursing care, beyond that of which a general nursing home might provide. Manchester House has provided the local community with bespoke nursing care for many years, with a reputation of providing excellent care for those who have complex care needs.

Our home certainly has charm and character, the hallway, lounges and dining rooms are large with high ceilings ensuring that along with the beautiful decor, the home is a very pleasant place to be.

The benefit of a large extension at the rear of the home ensures that there are ample ground floor bedrooms plus, reception rooms, dining rooms and lounges for residents to spend their time away from their own private bedrooms, should they wish. There are also accessible garden and courtyard garden areas for all to enjoy.

Bedrooms are very well appointed and furnished, varying in size to accommodate necessary care equipment and mobility aids, we very much encourage our residents to personalise their own bedrooms to ensure that it feel 'just like home'.

Manchester House provides 24 hour person-centred nursing care, delivering professional and compassionate care to residents with significant and complex health conditions. ]

We believe in knowing each resident as an individual. Care plans go beyond medical details, incorporating personal preferences and choices to ensure every resident thrives with maximum independence and comfort.

Our nurses collaborate with external healthcare professionals, providing a comprehensive range of expertise for specialised care needs, including PEG-feeding, palliative care, physical disabilities, bariatric care, mental health conditions, and end-of-life support. We also offer bespoke care for younger residents.

The respite care we provide is ideal for those requiring nursing care, following discharge from hospital or who might alternatively receive nursing care in their own home, when the care and attention of a qualified nurse is required. We are very happy to discuss your requirements for a respite stay, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your nursing needs.

Our residents have the freedom to design their days and are invited to join a variety of engaging activities offered throughout the home.

Our dedicated activity coordinator crafts programs to spark residents' interests and keep them stimulated. Participating in meaningful activities fosters a sense of comfort, security, and belonging, allowing residents to unwind, have fun, and build friendships.
