Built at the turn of the century and extended in the 1970s GARSWOOD is a beautiful house with spacious but secluded gardens situated in Birkdale, a popular and quiet suburb of Southport.

GARSWOOD has 34 rooms and is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to take up to 37 residents who may require up to high levels of residential care, including dementia, permanent, respite, holiday and day care.

Hazelwood is part of the building which has been converted into a specialised care facility providing extra care for residents suffering with dementia. Staff working in this facility are fully trained in dealing with the needs of residents, including those living with dementia. Residents are encouraged to use their abilities and to follow their interests and staff focus on responding to individual preferences and needs. Activities take place on a daily basis.

The Manager and his staff are dedicated to person centred care and to helping make a stay at Garswood a happy and loving experience during which the residents feel at home. Residents are placed at the heart of everything that happens at Garswood and their views and opinions are always taken into account.

The premises are well maintained, a lift serves all floors and all rooms have ensuite facilities.

GARSWOOD encourages residents to remain independent and active. A regular programme of activities is arranged which residents are invited to join in according to their own preferences.

Activities include:

  • Exercise classes
  • Coffee mornings
  • DVD presentations
  • Quizzes/word games
  • Craft/art classes
  • Daily Bible reading
  • Hymn singing
  • Flower arranging
  • Clothes shows
  • Outings to local places of interest
  • Gardening

Residents are welcome to entertain visitors in the Home and guest rooms are usually available. Residents are welcome to come and go as they choose, perhaps taking a walk to the local shops or to the nearby dunes, visiting the beach, have a coffee in the village, help in the garden or visit family and friends.

There is a frequent bus service into Southport and the nearest bus stop is just a few hundred yards from GARSWOOD. Situated about a mile from the Home, Birkdale village has a good variety of shops, banks, post office, cafes and a railway station on the Southport to Liverpool line.

The Southport Christadelphian Ecclesial Hall is just a mile-and-a-half away and transport is arranged for those wishing to attend Sunday services. The Southport Christadelphian Ecclesial Bible Class is held in GARSWOOD on Wednesday evenings and Bible Readings are arranged at the Home every week day evening.
