RNIB Wavertree House


With 150 years of experience providing world renowned support for people with sight problems, our homes have been designed to make life easy, in a warm, homely environment

Our care home has been designed to offer you the comfort and familiarity that you are used to in your own home. We offer a choice of furnished rooms, including one-bedroom flats with a separate sitting room, and studio flats, so you can pick the best option for you.

Housekeeping services are provided and your linen changed as often as you wish, plus we’ll  collect your laundry every day.

You can relax in our comfortable, well-furnished social areas, which include two sitting rooms, a craft room, and various quiet rooms where residents can read and play puzzles.

We have a beautiful garden, packed with scented flowers and plants, where you can sit and enjoy the sea air. The layout of every room and the decoration, including lighting, maximise visibility and ensure you can find your way around easily. Handrails in all corridors also help to ensure easy navigation around the home and continue out into the garden.

We offer a fully catered service to all our residents, serving breakfast, lunch and supper, as well as providing snacks throughout the day and night.

Our dedicated activity team ensure there’s always something fun to do

We create a personalised care plan with all our residents, to ensure you get the specific care and support you need.
