About Portland House

Portland House is a Housing with Care scheme for individuals living with mild – moderate dementia. It offers the opportunity to join a friendly community, with all the freedom and privacy of having your own front door, with a range of amenities that are designed to make retired life easy and enjoyable.

The development in partnership with St Helens Social Services and Forhousing has 8 studio apartments for rent, creating a diverse and vibrant community for residents living with Dementia, and has been taken up by the Department of Health as a model of best practice.

Offering a convenient location close to amenities and travel links, Portland House is the ideal place to enjoy a fulfilled retirement. Portland House is located in the middle of local town centres such as Warrington, St Helens & Wigan and cities such as Liverpool & Manchester. These places are within easy reach, via transport links such as trains or buses.

Transport links include the local train station connecting you with local attractions such as Langtree Park and Haliwell Rugby Stadiums, the World of Glass and the Transport museum which houses a whole range of vintage buses, lorries and cars. There are bus routes to more local destinations, making for an independent retirement either with or without a car.

How we enrich retirement

Purpose-built properties

The purpose-built studio apartments at Portland House, are arranged at ground level with wheelchair access throughout, and each studio apartment contains an on suite bathroom.

Social Activities

More than simply a place to live, Portland House residents regularly hold meetings to organise all the activities and outings throughout the year supported by the staff team. These can include anything from cheese and wine evenings to bingo, table games, baking, arts 7 crafts, gardening and meals out. Life can be as active or relaxing as you choose, but you'll certainly never be bored.

Available Properties

Tenancies at Portland House are arranged via the Social Landlord ForHousing following a needs assessment by the Social Work Team at St. Helens Borough Council.

Once a Social Worker assessment has been completed individuals have the opportunity to visit the Scheme for a 5 day trial period to enable them to make a decision if it is the right place for them.
