Choosing a care home

You may need residential, nursing or specialist dementia care depending on your needs. You can consider homes outside St Helens if your needs will be better met there.  

When choosing a home, it is important to make sure you choose one that will be right for you both now, and in the future. You can get advice and information to help make this important decision from:

  • Your social worker or care manager
  • A district nurse
  • A health visitor
  • Your family doctor


Please see our Care Home directory for more details of homes in and around the borough and what they provide.

Please Note: The care homes listed in our directory are all contracted with St Helens Council and undergo a vetting process to become an Approved Provider. They are regularly monitored and visited by the Quality Monitoring Team as part of the monitoring processes.
