Welcome to St Catherines Care Home
At St Catherine's we provide nursing care but we also have our Pike View Unit - a specialist dementia care unit that has achieved the PEARL award at silver level.
We are in the small town of Horwich, on the outskirts of Bolton town centre, so we're handy for Middlebrook shopping centre. We have several lounges where residents can relax and they will be very at home in our beautiful extensive grounds and conservatory.
At St Catherines Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at St Catherines Care Home
Our dedicated and enthusiastic activities coordinator will develop an individual plan to suit each resident's itinerary, 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.
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.
Thank you to you all for being so professional and humanistic.

St Catherines Care Home in Bolton put together a Digni-Tea party as part of the recent Dignity through Action Day – February 1st. The team invited residents and family members to join at the home for an afternoon of cream tea and entertainment.
To add to the day, the team invited local singer, Keith Moore, to come and perform for the guests. In the interval, cream tea and scones were served to everyone which went down well. To recognise the importance of dignity, everyone wrote down on a paper tea bag what dignity means to them. These were then all put into a large teapot for people to read.
A relative told us “We enjoyed the whole afternoon, singing and dancing to the music. We were made to feel extremely welcome by all the team. Cream tea and scones between the music was a great idea! A good day had by all”.

As the Royal College of Nursing prepares to celebrate their 100th Birthday, they have launched a photography competition in collaboration with the Royal Photographic Society with the aim to show a record of nursing over 100 years.
Two photographs have been submitted for the competition by our Northern Ireland team which can be seen above.
Carol Cousins, Managing Director NI, explains “The first image in the garden was decided on after discussing the difficulties with nurse recruitment. We decided to take a novel approach by supporting the Home Managers and Practice Support Manager to ‘grow their own’ nurses".
“The second image is all about ‘It was not like that in our day’. Growing up our mums talked fondly of nursing and always told us “it wasn’t like that in our day”. Wanting to prove them wrong we decided to follow in their footsteps and now we have a combined total of 122 years’ service to the nursing profession".
"We have to explain new world of nursing – Gary, Infection Control and Clinical Development Nurse, shows his mum modern clinical technology. Rebecca, who is about to commence Adult Nursing with the University of Brighton, demonstrates the ways fob watches have moved with the times and can still be fashionable. Meanwhile Leah models for her mum that nurses can wear trousers”.
The competition is open to RCN members and the public. The collection will be added to the RCN archive with 50 images shortlisted to form an exhibition which will be loaned to various places across the UK.
Entries so far can be seen here.
The competition will close for entries 29th February.

Over the Christmas period, St Catherines Care Home in Bolton turned their home into a Santa’s Grotto for the Christmas Fayre. Residents, relatives and friends all gathered at the home for some festive fun and treats.
To mark the day, the home was lucky enough to have a surprise visit from Santa and his elves, as well as him bringing some of his reindeer to visit. Everybody was shocked but loved having the reindeer around. They also had a wide variety of stalls available for people to browse. The Mayor of Horwich also came to see the festivities and have a chat with residents.
Gillian Johnson, Home Manager, told us “We had a fantastic day at our Christmas Fayre! The visit from the reindeer was a firm favourite for all. Despite the weather being on the dull side, we managed to raise £1500 for the resident’s fund which will certainly help in the New Year. Thank you all so much for coming”.
