Cressingham House – About the Home

Cressingham House Care Home

Cressingham House has 16 rooms. As the smallest Keychange care home, it is known for its homely feel.

Constructed in the 1930s, Cressingham House comprises 4 terraced houses which were joined together to form the current facility.  The Home was originally founded by a group of local Christian women who bought just one of the properties.  While discussing how they would find funds to purchase the house next door, the doorbell rang and there on the doorstep was a suitcase full of cash!  The adjoining property was purchased but the donor remains a mystery to this day.

Whilst preserving the particular charm of 1930s terraced accommodation, Cressingham House has seen some significant recent refurbishments and developments.  A new kitchen was installed in 2009.  All the windows were renewed in uPVC with double glazing in 2010.

The rear courtyards are south-facing and contain raised flower beds.

Cressingham House is situated in New Brighton on the banks of the Mersey, from which Liverpool can be clearly seen.  The waterfront at New Brighton is currently undergoing long-term major refurbishment to restore its Victorian charm.
