<span style="font-family:"Arial","sans-serif""> A ten-minute drive from Liverpool city centre, the home has extremely strong links with the Bootle community. Our residents frequently receive visits from youngsters who attend the local college, as well as a gospel choir who fill the residential and nursing home with truly magical sounds. Toddlers from the local nursery are regular visitors, and enjoy singing and doing arts and crafts with the residents. People from local church groups across the Sefton area also visit to carry out religious services, especially for our residents. Outside the home, there is so much to do. Some of our residents love to visit the Museum of Liverpool. There are also excursions to Southport Beach as well as Martin Mere Wetland Centre and Knowsley Safari Park. At the end of the summer, we are also planning a trip to see the Blackpool Illuminations.
