Valued in your community
At Princes Gardens, we are located in a vibrant area with cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a post office, library and beautiful walks along the coast. For people who like to stay active, Victoria Leisure Centre provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
Southport has lots of things to do, including Southport Pleasureland, Pier and Beach, Marine Lake Promenade, the Model Railway Village, a Vue Cinema, Tenpin Southport for bowling, theatres, art galleries and high-street shops and banks.
People also like to visit Liverpool, which has numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, 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
Princes Gardens is ready to welcome a mature person with a good level of independence. The men we support here are aged 51 and 64 who live with learning disabilities, autism, epilepsy, Asperger’s syndrome, and mental health conditions. One man here can have challenging behaviour so someone who can live in an occasionally noisy environment is ideal.
People here enjoy gardening, spending time with friends and family, working, volunteering, walking, shopping, socialising, listening to music, watching television, and being in the community.
Princes Gardens forms part of a group of three Lifeways properties. It is a sociable street with lots of friendships between people in different houses.
At Princes Gardens, people choose how they spend their time. Meetings are held every month to decide on what kind of activities people can be supported to take part in. People particularly enjoy trips to the coast and going on holiday - we have even been on holiday to Greece with a neighbouring Lifeways property.
“Princes Gardens is a lovely and lively house. It has a great atmosphere and the people we support here are friendly and happy. The reliable staff support people to do exactly what they want to do, which makes people feel really cared for. There are a few Lifeways properties close together, and all the households interact.” Manager, Princes Gardens
