Berkeley House is a 18-bed specialist nursing home that supports people with complex needs in the Pemberton, Wigan area.
Berkeley Gardens has 18 beds and offers a step-down service from our specialist nursing unit “Berkeley Village” and from the community and hospital settings.
Welcome to Berkeley House
The home has recently developed an extension of 18 beds due to the high need in the local area for beds for people 18 years upwards with brain injury, mental health, complex needs, neurological conditions, cognitive impairment or dual diagnosis. This will take the home up to a 36-bed care home.
The amenities and facilities within the town centre are approximately 1 mile away. The home is set upon the same site as the company’s nursing home, Appleby Court.
All rooms are en-suite and are tastefully furnished to a high standard, providing a television point, telephone point and nurse call system in each room.
The facilities also includes a variety of lounge, dining and communal areas.
The home is based over two units and both have been built to the highest standards and developed to provide a 36-bed care home over 2 units with multi-disciplinary input.
