Prince Alfred Residential Care Home in LiverpoolRose Villas, Prince Alfred Road, Liverpool, Merseyside, L15 8HH
Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic
Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.
The team at our care home in Wavertree are truly special and treat our residents like family.
Providing residential care, staff also support people with physical disabilities as well as those with neurological disorders such as Parkinson's Disease and dementia.
Manager Cheryl has been at the helm for 28 years and her team is extremely well established. 24 of her staff have been at Prince Alfred for 182 years between them, which is wonderful for their residents’ continuity of care.
Visitors always comment on what a lovely feeling they get when they walk through the door and this is down to the staff. Most of the team live in Wavertree and go above and beyond for the residents, often popping in on days off to help with special events or activities.
Supporting our residents to lead fuller lives
Keeping our residents as active as their health permits promotes their mental wellbeing and stimulates their minds in later life.
No matter what their role, all of our staff are directly involved in enriching residents’ lives through activities. They spend time talking to them to see what makes them happy so they can plan activities that are truly personal to them.
Our activities leader can then focus on wider group activities for residents in our care home to enjoy, and organising trips into Wavertree and the surrounding Liverpool area to places residents love to visit.
A lot of the activities they have organised are very personal to people individually and include cookery class and trips for our gents to the local pub for a pint. This is sometimes followed by a visit to Anfield to watch their beloved Liverpool Football Club or Everton Football Club’s Goodison Park in Walton.
One member of staff recently took several of our more able-bodied residents on a Beatles-themed tour of Liverpool on his day off and gave them each a framed photo of their special day as a memento. Another member of staff recently asked each of our residents to choose their favourite song and compiled these onto an album to play in the care home - this is typical of how caring our staff are.
There is now a DIY club at the home, where under the supervision of our dedicated maintenance man, our residents are able to help with small jobs.
Engaging in the Wavertree community
Our residents are supported to be as independent as possible and we actively empower them to take the lead on how their home is run. They sit on the interview panel if we are employing a new member of staff, asking questions and helping to make the final decision. They are also directly involved in deciding what activities they would like to do and review our home-cooked menus each month.
Our residents love to welcome regular visits from local school children into their care home. The students were recently spotted teaching our residents how to do ‘The Floss’ dance!
In the summer they love going on barge trips and for walks in Wavertree Park, known locally as ‘Mystery Park’, which is opposite the home. We are part of a very close-knit community here – our local fish and chip shop even opens up and hour early for us to place a large order for a weekend treat!
