We are finalists in the North West Great British Care Awards for Care Home Team! Home manager Cheryl: “My team put their heart and soul into this home and are very special people doing a very special job.”
Providing residential care and support for people living with the early stages of dementia, our team also provides long term and short-stay respite care options. These give family caregivers the chance to have the carer break they need, knowing their loved one is in safe hands. Our short breaks can also support older people needing a little convalescence.
We are proud to be rated ‘Outstanding’ in the Caring element of our Care Quality Commission (CQC) report.
Outstanding rating for ‘Care’ from Care Quality Commission (CQC)
Comments from both friends and family, as well as residents, include: “It’s exceptional here, I don’t believe there is any other place like it,” and “it’s outstanding and genuine care here, it’s a vocation, not a job for the staff, the continuity of staff here is exceptional, most staff have been here for many years - that says a lot.”
While another said, “the level of care is beyond my expectations” and “the care is in a different league altogether”. Read the report in full.
A devoted and long-serving care home team
Manager Cheryl has been at the helm for 30 years, and her team of qualified and experienced staff is extremely well established. Many have been with the care home for over 10 and even 15 years, providing that continuity of high-quality care.
The staff treat residents and their relatives like family, which is clear from the warmth of the care home. Some of the team members visit on their days off to help with special events or activities.
What are activities like here?
Keeping our residents as active as their health permits promotes their well-being and stimulates their minds.
No matter what their role, all of our staff are directly involved in supporting person-centred activities. They spend time finding out what makes our residents happy, so they can plan activities that are personal to them. For our residents living with dementia or age-related memory loss, this is wonderful for supporting reminiscence.
We have a DIY club here, where under the supervision of our dedicated maintenance man Steve, our residents love to help out with small jobs. Sometimes they like to relax while having a manicure during a pamper session. We also have a cinema/activities room for wider group activities.
During ‘normal times’, one of our male carers will take some of our football fans to Anfield to watch their beloved Liverpool Football Club. And there are trips to see Everton at Goodison Park in Walton, followed by a pint.
One staff member took a group on a Beatles-themed tour of Liverpool on his day off and gave them each a framed photo of their special day. Another asked everyone to choose their favourite song and compiled these into an album to play in the care home. This is typical of how caring and supportive our qualified and experienced staff are.
CQC praises how our high-quality care champions independence
As highlighted in our Outstanding CQC rating for Care, we empower our residents to take the lead on how Prince Alfred is run. They sit on the interview panel if we are employing a new member of staff, asking questions and supporting us to make the final decision. Our residents are also directly involved in deciding what activities they would like to do and review our home-cooked menus each month.
Food glorious food
Mealtimes are a huge highlight, with home-cooked nutritious meals served daily, along with home baking. Our residents often fancy something a little different, so we have themed ‘foody’ events with cuisine from around the globe.
Engaging in the Wavertree community
Our residents have also enjoyed visits from local school children in Wavertree who enjoy visiting our care home They love barge trips and afternoon tea organised for senior citizens at our favourite hotel in Merseyside. And there are walks in Wavertree Park, opposite the care home. Our local fish and chip shop even opens up and hour early for us to place a large order for a weekend treat!
It is usual for residents in care homes to contribute to the cost of their own care. Some people have the resources to pay for this in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions. Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to truly understand the level of care and support needed.
Our 2022 weekly care fees for residential care start from £976 but maybe in the region of 20% more*. This depends on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms to our premium bedroom options.
*If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support, your weekly fee could be higher.
