Who Chooses to Live at Mary & Joseph House?

Mary & Joseph House is a residential care home in a unique position in that it is one of the few homes in the area that offers a specific service, to gentlemen with past/present alcohol problems and mental health issues.

Our residents are all men and come from all kinds of backgrounds.  They are generally aged from around 45 to 80, but some of our residents choose to make Mary & Joseph House a home for life.  We are not able to provide nursing care at the House, but we will assist all those who live at the House to remain here for as long as we are able to meet their needs.

Admission to the House

Admissions are referred via Social Services or Local Health Authorities who complete a needs assessment as part of the Care Management Process.  We will carry out a further assessment at 6 weeks after admission to ensure that we would be able to suitably meet the new residents’ needs.

All potential residents will be given an information pack, and visit the House to look around.  They will be given the opportunity to meet some of our residents and enjoy a meal before deciding that they would like to move into the House for a trial period.  We will endeavour to assist relatives and friends to be involved in this process.

If someone moves into the House in an emergency, we will inform him of the rules and routines within the first 48 hours.  The full information and assessment process will then be completed within five days.  Some emergency admissions may need to be rehoused if it is found that the care we provide is not appropriate for their needs.

Referral forms can be printed and emailed to our Home Manager Julie Hoszowskyj at julieh@maryandjosephhouse.co.uk or faxed back to 0161 273 6864.
