 “My Mum has been in Connell Court since January 2019 and is more than happy with every aspect of living there - so it's top marks from me.” Independent review on

Where are we?                

We are well placed in beautiful Birkdale, close to the village where there is an assortment of cafes and bars. We are a five-minute walk away from the local railway station with links to Liverpool and Manchester. There are several doctors surgeries nearby and we're just five minutes away from Southport town centre with the infamous Lord Street.

Varied events calendar

We have a full schedule of activities and events that are facilitated by our two activity coordinators throughout the week that include, quizzes, chair exercises, baking, gardening club, reminiscence, bingo, beauty therapy, trips out to local shops, coffee shops for afternoon tea, singalongs, frequent visiting entertainment, barge trips, trips to Blackpool and Llandudno, garden parties, coffee mornings and many more.

We also hold regular fundraising raffles where the money raised is put towards the resident amenity fund and this is used to pay for special treats for our residents. We put on monthly classical concerts that are facilitated by one of our residents and we have an initiative of "Ask Ivor" that is a suggestion box where residents can request particular music for their pleasure.

We also have Sherry Sunday, Treat Tuesday and Fizzy Friday these are little extras that our residents particularly enjoy, especially Treat Tuesday where residents get to choose the Tuesday treat that varies from cream cakes from local bakers to a hand massage from care staff.

Award-winning music therapy

We are committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to help alleviate isolation and the symptoms for those living with dementia. Our therapist is funded by charitable donations. They interact directly with residents through live music therapy sessions. This includes singing, playing simple percussion instruments or responding to musical cues in a one-to-one or group setting. Take a look at our video to find out more about this life-changing therapy.

Chaplaincy and pastoral support

We have a resident chaplain two days a week who has been a local Methodist preacher for 20 years and has been with us since 2013. Heather provides companionship and spiritual support to our residents, relatives and staff. She provides weekly quiet group, communion, pastoral visits and hospital visits. Heather is a valuable addition to our team and regularly supports them especially for our social activities.

Seize the day - unique and memorable opportunities

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

We offer care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Your room

All our bedrooms have either a full en suite wet room or en suite toilet and sink and some rooms enjoy lovely garden views.

If your loved one enjoys catching up with the latest news, sport, chat shows or soaps, we can provide a TV in their room on request, and there’s WiFi throughout the home.

We have a call system which can be operated by a hand control or a pendant depending on personal preference. All floors are secured by keypad coding to ensure that residents are safe and secure at all times.

Residential care

Finding a place that you can call "home" is a question of getting the right balance.

Our residential care provides 24 hour support to help you maintain their independence –giving you peace of mind and a place to make new friends and explore new interests.

In many ways it is like living in a hotel, where you don’t need to worry about laundry, changing the bed or cleaning your room. We will use the district nurse and GP's to provide any medical care. Our caring staff help with everyday activities, as required, like bathing and dressing or support at meal times.

At the same time, there is no reason why you can’t maintain links with the local community, or develop new friendships and relationships. Care staff will help you do that, while also working hard to create a home that is itself full of opportunity and possibility.

In the main living areas of the home you will find lounges where you can join in one of the many activities with others or to sit quietly with a book or newspaper.

Food and drink

Mealtimes are an important part of the day here, giving our residents the opportunity to get together and enjoy freshly prepared food in a relaxed restaurant-style environment. We always offer two meal options and our team, led by chef Kath, will happily prepare something special if nothing on the menu appeals

  • Freshly prepared meals, cooked by our in-house chef
  • All dietary and religious needs catered for
  • Locally sourced meats, fruit and vegetables where possible
  • Seasonal ingredients – menus change three times a year with input from residents
  • Specialist equipment and assistance as needed
  • Snacks and drinks available 24 hours a day
  • Home baking every day
  • Relatives welcome to join residents for meals

Our residents particularly enjoy special themed meals such as Mother’s day, Easter, Valentine’s day and Christmas.

Our commitment to your wellbeing

Our highly-trained, dedicated members of staff will always be on hand to provide your care and support in the way that best suits you, in the comfort of your own room with en suite facilities.

We choose the people who work with us very carefully. They need to share our values and respect people, their life experience and personal choices.

We take pride in the cleanliness and maintenance of your home and provide a thorough and friendly cleaning service. Your personal washing will be carefully laundered and returned to you, clean and fresh.

We also provide regular gentle exercise sessions and have close links with GP surgeries, district nurses and dentists. And our in-house hair salon keeps everyone looking their best.
