The Guernsey Cheshire Home is a unique facility that for more than 30 years has been providing a high level of care for islanders with physical disabilities including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, stroke and spinal injury. It provides a home for people who need continuous care and are unable to live in their own homes.
The Guernsey Cheshire Home has one aim: to provide care and opportunity for people with physical disabilities in as close to a family atmosphere as possible. This includes the preservation of dignity and individual independence, as well as providing residents with the absolute right to live a life of their own choosing within a family environment.
The home has 11 long-term residents and 15 day visitors (who visit 1-3 times/week).
We have 1 respite bed which is open to people with a physical disability living in the community.
We have an activities team who work with the residents and day visitors on projects which are of interest to them. This could be anything from artwork, exercises, table cricket, visits from the Guernsey Kennel Club or outings to various local venues.
