Built in 1663, Croston Park is a beautiful Grade II listed country mansion, full of character that hits you the moment you pass through the listed ruins of its grand archway. Sat in unspoilt conservation land, it enjoys more than two acres of garden and woodland, adjacent to the River Yarrow, in the friendly and ancient village of Croston – midway between Preston, Southport, Wigan and Chorley. Formerly the private residence of the nearby Church rector, the building’s purpose nowadays is to house a centre of excellence that delivers unrivalled levels of care in the area for elderly people.
Our emphasis at Croston Park is on ensuring our residents feel at home. They are encouraged to bring their own treasured items of furniture, to entertain relatives and guests and to take part in discussions regarding the running of the home. At the same time they, along with their relatives, can have peace of mind knowing that care and support will always be there, whenever it is needed. We want to ensure residents live as fully and happily as possible, whether this be taking part in the wide range of activities at the home, or simply enjoying the delightful surroundings and relaxing in the warm, friendly and safe environment. The dignity and care given of all of our residents is held above all else, and we recognise that without our wonderful staff team we would never be able to deliver the kind of care we are known for in the area. We have a comprehensive training programme for all staff, and a very experienced manager for whom nothing is too much trouble. Bernadette Roe has gained the Registered Managers Award, has more than twenty years experience in acute care, and many years as a nursing home manager within the private sector.
Croston Park is totally committed to providing the highest standards of care and accommodation, and is unique in being able to offer a complete range of care services including full residential care, nursing care and respite care. The building retains many of its original features, yet has been painstakingly refurbished to provide a luxurious home for the elderly with every modern facility. Becoming a care home in 1988, the nursing care wing was added in 1997, with a separate smaller unit created within the home to care for those with dementia.
Croston Park aims to provide the highest standards of care for all its residents, whether they are short or long stay, residential, nursing or in need of end of life care. Through our complete range of registration we aim to be able to offer care no matter how their health changes, offering that all-important comfort in knowing that Croston Park can be a home for life.
Croston Park is a 43 bed residential and nursing home, with a separate wing dedicated to dementia residents, all within spacious rooms and many with en-suite facilities. The home has been tastefully extended in recent years whilst keeping many of its original features, to continue providing excellent care for all of its residents.
