Valued in your community
At Kingsdale, we are fortunate to be located in vibrant Birkenhead. The local area has many cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops, as well as Birkenhead Market, the Pyramids Shopping Centre, Birkenhead Priory, the U-boat Story Museum, Birkenhead Park, the Wirral Transport Museum and Heritage Tramway, and a Vue Cinema.
For people who like to stay active, Europa Pool Leisure Centre provides year-round access to a gym, swimming pool, activities and group classes.
People also have access to St Catherine’s Hospital, which offers a range of services including adult social care, rehabilitation, specialised dental care, and physiotherapy.
Liverpool is easily accessible from the property. Here, people can enjoy numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Lane 7 Liverpool for bowling, and Imagine That Science and Discovery Centre. And we’re spoilt for choice for beautiful walks - the docks, Toxteth Park, Wavertree Botanic Gardens and Sefton Park are just a small selection.
Liverpool is also home to The Reader Organisation - a charity specialising in shared reading to improve mental wellbeing. Located in Calderstones Park, people can visit the Reader Cafe or the Storybarn to join shared reading sessions, where stories are read aloud and then discussed.
Living at this service
Kingsdale is ideal for an able-bodied person aged between 30 and 40. The people we support here have high care needs, so an individual who has a good level of independence is very welcome.
At Kingsdale, we currently support two women and one man, all in their 30s. They have severe learning disabilities, epilepsy, limited mobility, and autism. Two of the people here are non-verbal.
People enjoy shopping, walking in the woods, visiting family, arts and crafts, toys, books, cartoons, swimming, spending time in the community, having stories read to them, and peace and quiet.
At Kingsdale, people choose how they spend their time - day trips to the nearby beaches, going into Liverpool, or to Chester Zoo are favourites.
“At Kingsdale, our longstanding staff members are passionate about the care they provide. The individual needs of the people we care for are always at the centre of our minds. The property has a homely environment and people really enjoy living here.” Manager, Kingsdale
