The Duke's House
Life-changing residential care for adults with learning disabilities, autism, non-complex physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries or mental health conditions.
Type of property
The Duke's House is a welcoming, supportive and stimulating residential service for people with complex care and support needs to live fulfilling lives.
The property has eight ensuite bedrooms, a kitchen, dining room, lounge area, laundry room, quiet room and a shared bathroom with a hydrotherapy bath. The properties also have two accessible gardens with patio areas. There's a sensory room, and a training kitchen to help people learn cooking skills. Recently we have added a family-friendly visiting room which is accessed from the back of the property.
We use assistive technology including door and motion sensors, an intercom, and door alarms to increase people's independence.

Every month, we come together to choose our activities and how we want to spend time in the local area. At the Duke's House, we are fortunate to be located on the picturesque New Brighton coast, just a short stroll from the beach and promenade.
At the Duke's House, people choose how they spend their time. North Wales, Chester and Blackpool are firm favourites. Closer to home, people enjoy going to the beach - we are ideally located for this, with a beautiful sea view from the property.
The local area has many cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops, as well as Wallasey Central Library, the Light Cinema, a miniature golf course, Marine Point retail and leisure park, Riverside Bowl and Laser Quest, a model boating lake, and the Floral Pavilion Theatre. Guinea Gap Leisure Centre provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
