Welcome to Manchester House
Manchester House is one of Southport's finest Victorian residences, which overlooks Hesketh Park. Easily located in Southport, the home is close to the town centre and promenade.
The home offers a wide range of specialist nursing care, beyond 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'.
Friends and family are welcome to visit at any time. We also have a specially constructed 'visitor pod' so that we are able to facilitate safe family visiting, whatever the current guidelines may be.
The health, well-being and happiness of our ‘family’ of residents, is always our number one priority.
Manchester House provides 24 hour bespoke nursing care, delivering professional and compassionate care to residents with significant and complex health conditions.
We understand that every resident is unique with individual care requirements. Care plans are written, and not only include the in depth medical and health information, but with the help of our residents and their families we ensure that all personal preferences, choices and requests are included, to maximise the choice, independence and the comfort of our residents
Our nurses work very closely with other external healthcare professionals, to ensure that the broadest range of expertise is available to support all nursing care needs. We can offer nursing care for people with specific requirements, includug PEG- feeding, palliative, physical disabilities, bariatric care, mental health conditions as well as end of life care and bespoke care for younger age groups.
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.
Residents choose how they wish to spend their days and are encouraged to take part in the many 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. Being engaged in meaningful activities ensures residents feel comfortable, safe and 'at home' enough to be able to relax and have fun and enjoy the company of others, as friends.

What people say
I am extremely happy with all aspects of Manchester House and the way my husband is cared for. Also, the way they look after all my family
My mum has been in Manchester House for a long time now, she has always been happy here and never had any issues with her care or staff members. All the staff are fantastic and always friendly when we are visiting.
I couldn’t be happier with the care the staff give my mum and the hard work they put in. An awesome bunch of people.
My Mum is being looked after really well with love and compassion. We feel really lucky knowing that through this Covid-19 pandemic she has been having the best care possible so we have not had to worry about her. We cannot thank the staff for their dedication.
Every time I visit, I find the staff very friendly and accommodating, always around to make refreshments for me and my cousin. He seems happy with all staff and they all seem to have a good relationship with him, which is nice for me to see.
