We have a large accessible garden for our residents to enjoy relaxation and activity outdoors. Our home is also adjacent to a lovely park and gardens – very popular for gentle walks.
An Active Life
At Eccleston Court, we run an extensive activity programme and support people to enjoy days out in the community too. By getting to know the people we support well, we are able to offer activities that meet their different passions and interests. We have fun one-to-one and group activities, such as arts and crafts, quiz nights, reminiscence sessions and day trips. We have regular social events for people we support and their families, including performances from local entertainers. We welcome the contribution of family members and work together to plan special days out and celebrations. The Haydock Suite area of Eccleston Court has a stunning St Helens RFC room, which was opened by Saints legends Paul Sculthope and Eddie Cunningham. It also has rooms celebrating seaside memories, local history and family life.
Food and Nutrition
Mealtimes are an event for the people we support to look forward to everyday, and this begins with an appetising offering. We have a partnership with Apetito whose chefs and nutritionist have taken pride in catering for specific requirements and nutritional needs, without compromising on the delight of a delicious meal. Apetito Chefs regularly update menus to keep things fresh, while also ensuring they’re filled with home comforts such as traditional Sunday roasts and fish Friday. Apetito also provide an award-winning Texture Modified range in line with IDDSI standards, allowing people we support who may have difficulty swallowing to enjoy their meal and dine with dignity. They also provide meals to special dietary requirements without compromising on taste. Snacks and beverages are always available throughout the day and we even have snack stations located on each unit free of charge. Our doors are always open – there’s no restriction on visiting hours however, to respect the dignity of our residents we request that you avoid visiting during meal times.
Person Centred Support
We are committed to providing personalised support that ensures our residents lead active, happy and fulfilled lives:
All staff receive specialist training and mentoring. We really get to know our residents and spend time understanding their life story and the things that are important to them, so we focus on the things that really matter to them. Every resident has a named key worker who helps develop their own personalised care. We hold a regular forum with residents, enabling them to voice their views on the day-to-day running of our home. We have strong links with local organisations in the community including Alzhemier’s Society, Age UK and local advocacy groups.
