Extra Care

Foundry Wharf, Fingerpost, St Helens - NOW OPEN


Extra Care homes are designed with the over 55s in mind, where you can remain independent for as long as possible with individually assessed care and support on-site, should you need them.

Welcome to Foundry Wharf providing homes for people over the age of 55 who want to live independently in stunning, one- and two-bedroom self-contained apartments. 

Complete with the added reassurance that tailored care and support is available, assessed to your current, or future, individual needs.

Built on Atlas Street overlooking the canal and close to St Helens town centre, Foundry Wharf is a place to enjoy the good things in life, with each purpose-built home designed and developed to help maintain your way of life for as long as possible. 

Foundry Wharf offers modern, high quality, self-contained apartments with your own front door.  Each of the 130 apartments have a kitchen, a bathroom with level access wet rooms, one or two-bedrooms and a living area.  They are designed specifically to accommodate people with mobility issues and to provide a comfortable and safe environment.

The cutting-edge scheme will also boast a hairdressing salon and bistro, both of which will be open to the local community.

Onsite Care Provision
Foundry Wharf Extra Care Scheme offers you the chance to move into accommodation designed with the over 55s in mind, where you can remain independent for as long as possible with individually assessed care and support on-site, should you need them.

Extra Care offers a self-contained home of your own where social activities are easy to find, and help is on hand, if you need it.  It often appeals to couples where one might be relatively fit and the other less so, providing a secure living environment that reassures relatives.

Foundry Wharf is more than just a home, it is a Scheme that actively promotes and encourages physical and mental wellbeing.  Residents will be able to access an extensive health and wellbeing package from Torus Support Network, which offers opportunities to socialise and provides access to a wide range of group activities.

Extra Care is all about ensuring your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Foundry Wharf has an emergency alarm which lets you call for assistance should you need it, with staff carrying out regular wellbeing checks for all residents.  ‘Assistive’ technology is also installed throughout the building, which allows residents to contact the team for emergency help and can also be used with a range of devices such as falls pendants and activity sensors to allow residents to stay independent for longer.  

On-site care and support will be delivered by Torus Support Network housing team and the care provider, Human Support Group.
