The Hawthorns

Registered with ARCO


41 Retirement Living with Care Apartments

Registered with ARCO 

Officially opened in June 1997, and built in conjunction with the adjacent Mayfields care home, The Hawthorns is a retirement living with care community made up of 41 apartments, seven of which are designed for couples. The development also has extensive gardens, which some residents help to maintain, and a large communal lounge that is well used.

The Hawthorns, writes its Manager, “has a very vibrant and relaxed atmosphere” – which becomes evident when one realises how much goes on there. The residents have a committee that organises all the activities and outings throughout the year, which may include anything from cheese and wine evenings to tea dances and meals out. Outings include trips to the Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall in Wales, the Wirral Peninsula, and to the Market Day in Frodsham – not forgetting visits to the local tea rooms. Closer to home, activities include bingo and indoor bowls, while a hairdresser regularly tends the salon. And to round the year off, the committee also organises a Christmas dinner, which most residents and members of staff attend.

At The Hawthorns, we now provide 24-hour staffing on site.  We deliver around the clock support and care tailored to individual needs.
