What Our Customers Say

  • K. F. West

    One of our relatives wrote the following poem:

    There is a haven tucked away,

    beyond a church so grand.

    A place where people love to care,

    and lend a helping hand.

    To all the residents therein,

    when varying needs command.

    Then dignity is uppermost,

    with daily routines planned.

    The staff are most observant,

    and are trained to understand.

    The difficulties facing them,

    their patience is ‘first hand’.

    Where all are treated with respect,

    in a caring ‘Wonderland’.

    At the haven tucked away,

    beyond a church so grand.

  • JP

    One of our residents wrote the following poem:

    I have gone to live in a wonderful care home,

    The care home is St Catherines in Horwich.

    I find the home to be very nice and clean,

    And the carers are very good.

    Just have a look and you will see,

    That it is a nice place to be.

    If you find you are all alone,

    And you need a home like me.

    Just go to St Catherines Care Home in Horwich,

    And soon you will see they will be there for you,

    Just like they are for me.

    They are very kind and thoughtful,

    And they will make you welcome.

    Just like they did for me.

    It is a wonderful place to be,

    And they treat you with dignity, love and kindness.

    Just come and see.

  • Carol Hogg

    I have 3 family members in the home, and it comforts me to know they are being well looked after. I am confident that the staff do everything possible and often go beyond the call of duty to ensure my family members are happy. The home always has a warm and friendly atmosphere.

  • Warren Makinson

    We just wanted to say a big Thank You for all the hard work and effort you put in to make Mum’s 90th Birthday such a special one. The buffet was fantastic as was the entertainment. Everyone commented on how lovely the food, cake etc was. You certainly gave Mum, and all of us a day to remember and treasure.

  • Barbara Swift

    I think the staff are excellent. We are happy and pleased with the commitment and love shown to the residents, the staff should be commended. Thank you to you all for being so professional and humanistic, I am confident that the staff do everything possible for my relative.

  • Kenneth Thomson

    I cannot praise the staff at St.Catherine’s enough. My mother is a resident there and has never been better looked after in her whole 90 years. She always said she would never go into one of those places’, yet once she moved into St.Catherine’s she said she wished she had moved in years ago. She has recently been in hospital, yet still feels better looked after whilst in St.Catherine’s. All I can say is thank goodness for St.Catherine’s and their caring staff’.

What Our Staff Say


It’s a real challenge keeping a nursing home fresh and clean. We have a good team here and although infection control is a priority we still make sure the bedrooms are made as homely as possible. I love it here at St.Catherine’s, its all about the residents and what they want.

We provide both nursing and residential care but we also have our Pike View Unit, a specialised dementia care unit that has achieved the PEARL AWARD at silver level. Our staff are all trained in Person Centred Care providing our residents with the best of care.

Horwich is a small town on the outskirts of Bolton town centre, near the Middlebrook shopping centre. Our home is on two levels. The dementia care unit is downstairs with access to the gardens and patio area. We have a conservatory and two lounges on Pike View, and a lounge and dining room downstairs. Upstairs are the bedrooms and another quiet lounge. The residents and their families take pride in personalising their rooms with favourite ornaments, pictures and photographs from home making their rooms their own private houses.

Race for Life Logo


Some of our staff are taking part in Race for Life on Sunday 7th July. If anyone would like to kindly sponsor us then please see a member of staff for the sponsor form. Thank you.

Lifestyle and Activities

We have a dedicated and enthusiastic activities co-ordinator who develops individual plans to suit the itinerary of each resident, be it gardening, cooking or a visit to the shops. We have access to a minibus for outings and make sure we have a social event every month. Parties are always popular here.

We have a wonderful chef who produces excellent home cooked traditional meals. The whole home has a real buzz about it. Everyone joins in the activities here and a lovely salon means hairdressing and pamper days with our beautician are an absolute must for the ladies.

Information on Fees and Funding
