Dementia Day Care

Our day care is designed to give caregivers and families regular or intermittent respite while their loved ones enjoy a quality environment and genuine caring by qualified and well-trained staff. Our attendees will usually have middle to end-stage dementia.

Subject to your enquiry, a senior member of staff will arrange to meet you and the person needing day care and go through an assessment to confirm that the services are appropriate and suitable for their needs. This would be either at your home or at Gorsey Clough Nursing Home. If you wanted to proceed with our day care service, we would ask you to complete a personal history questionnaire. This enables us to adapt our care around the attendee.

Information about Gorsey Clough

Gorsey Clough Nursing Home is an award-winning provider of Dementia, Alzheimer's, EMI residential care and day care in Bury. We specialise in nursing care of the elderly, elderly mentally ill and younger persons with dementia.

We have been established for many years on the Bolton border and Bury area of Greater Manchester and are immensely proud of the reputation of Gorsey Clough and the quality of care we provide to our Residents.

Gorsey Clough occupies a former local industrialist's house that has been skilfully extended to provide an appropriate and superb care environment for vulnerable persons who require complex care.

We are not part of a corporate group of homes. We are a family run Home whose primary goal is to provide the highest standards of care, comfort, and compassion for every one of our residents. The Home is their home and we encourage them to treat it that way.

Each member of staff undergoes a rigorous induction and ongoing professional training. We nurture our staff to ensure that they are motivated, kind, respectful, and gentle towards our residents.

We will always listen with compassion and understanding to our residents, their relatives, and friends and respond with the kind of personal attention we would hope for ourselves.

Situated in Green Belt, the Home has a wonderful outlook enjoying unspoilt views of the surrounding countryside and is approached by a long drive leading down to the original 19th century house. The whole setting is entirely rural yet very near to the amenities of Tottington and a little further on to the towns of Bury and Bolton.

The proximity of motorways means that even Manchester can be described as being only a short distance away.
