    What’s life like at Milnshaw House?

    Milnshaw House opened in 2020 in the quiet town of Accrington. Our residents benefit from the best of both worlds; we are in easy walking distance to local shops and amenities, but also picturesque countryside is right on our doorstep. Blackburn can also be reached in just over 30 minutes by bus.
    From the day we opened our doors it was important to us as a team to establish excellent links with the local community and the services our residents would be visiting.

    We encourage our residents to be actively involved in our monthly residents’ meeting, where our team and our residents come together to share feedback and new ideas.

    “it’s just the people around me that are always there for me when I need a chat, and since I've been here I've been getting better and better.”

    People's views and decisions about care were incorporated in their care plans. This helped staff to support people in a way that allowed people to have control over their lives. People told us, "I would recommend this service to other people. Staff help me with [name of activity] and help to keep me focused." (CQC Report 2021)
