Welcome to Old Gates Care Home in Blackburn

Old Gates is made up of three purpose-built houses – Cherry, Rowan and Holly. With no more than 30 residents, each house is a small community in its own right. Our dedicated team of registered nurses and highly-trained care assistants deliver support tailored to residents' specific needs.

We are situated in a friendly residential area of Feniscowles, close to beautiful open countryside with each house surrounded by landscaped grounds, with a secure patio area, outdoor seating and a tranquil sensory garden. These amenities help our staff create a warm, welcoming atmosphere where residents' independence is encouraged as much as possible.

Types of care

  • Care for those recovering from surgery or illness, through a combination of rest appropriate exercise and balanced diet.

  • In addition to person centred care, we provide nursing staff to support residents who require qualified nursing care.

  • We offer 24-hour personal support to those with a condition that requires frequent specialised, qualified nursing care.

  • We provide respectful pro-active care for residents and relatives in their last days of life. We ensure that their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs are considered and met.

  • Provides accommodation, meals and personal care for those who find it increasingly difficult to cope at home without assistance.

  • Round the clock care in a safe, comfortable environment for up to six weeks. Perfect for carers who are ill, on holiday or just need a break.
