On site care provision

Spinnaker House Extra Care Scheme offers you the chance to move into accommodation designed with the over 55s in mind, where you can remain independent for as long as possible with individually assessed care and support on-site, should you need them.

Extra Care offers a self-contained home of your own where social activities are easy to find, and help is on hand, if you need it. It often appeals to couples where one might be relatively fit and the other less so, providing a secure living environment that reassures relatives.

Spinnaker House is more than just a home, it is a scheme that actively promotes and encourages physical and mental wellbeing, which offers opportunities to socialise.

Extra Care is all about ensuring your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Spinnaker House has an emergency alarm which lets you call for assistance should you need it, with staff carrying out regular wellbeing checks for all residents.  ‘Assistive’ technology is also installed throughout the building, which allows residents to contact the team for emergency help and can also be used with a range of devices such as falls pendants and activity sensors to allow residents to stay independent for longer.

On-site care and support will be provided by Wirral based, experienced care provider Professional Carers along with Torus Support Network housing team.

Professional Carers have been delivering Community Care in Wirral for 25 years, first opening its door in 1998. With a Head Office in Wallasey and one of the largest care providers on Wirral, their team of staff deliver Domiciliary care in a range of community settings including Extra Care sites, to over 450 individuals across the local community. With a Care Quality Commission grading of ‘Good’, Professional Carers put people at the heart of everything they do.
