Valued in your community
At Richmond Avenue, we are fortunate to be located in a peaceful village with peaceful surroundings.
The local area has small cafes, pubs and restaurants, as well as a post office, library and beautiful walks along the canal. For people who like to stay active, Burscough Racquet and Fitness Centre, or Park Pool, provide year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
In nearby Southport, there are 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
Richmond Avenue is an ideal home for a woman aged between 40 and 70. People living here are aged between 48 and 65, and have learning disabilities and autism. Their interests include karaoke, walking, swimming, cycling, attending a drama club, shopping, cooking, bingo, going to the disco, Segway riding, listening to music, watching television, and being in the community.
At Richmond Avenue, people choose how to spend their time - meetings are held every four weeks to decide on what kind of activities we should do. People particularly enjoy going to Southport, Liverpool and Blackpool. We even go on holiday together once a year - so far we’ve been to Wales and Spain.
“Richmond Avenue is a very settled and happy house. It really is a friendly home, in a peaceful and picturesque village. The people we support here are always open and welcoming to everyone who visits.” Manager, Richmond Avenue
