Did you know that Crossroads Care Cheshire West, Wirral and Shropshire run a bathing service?
People often take getting up, washed and dressed for granted but it doesn’t take much for it to become a difficult task. Our approach is to provide a genuine helping hand rather than making people feel like they cannot care for themselves. Our staff will help with getting in and out of the bath, drying and dressing, preserving your dignity and privacy at all times, but ill be close by should you need them.
We recently received a donation from John Church, Vice Chairman of NHS Cheshire, Warrington & Wirral. John’s kind donation was 5 bathing cushion inflatable bath lifts, at a cost of £2260, John has also funded a years maintenance for the bathing cushions as well.
The inflatable bathing cushion requires no installation and weighs only 2kg, making it exceptionally portable yet highly durable. The product can be packed away into a small holdall for ease of transportation. The bath lift is designed to allow you to lie right down in the bath giving the user optimum bathing pleasure. There is also the option of leaving some air in the cushion while bathing, enabling the cushion to mould around you for additional comfort and support.
Anyone can make a referral to our bathing service. If you know of anyone who would benefit and would like to make a referral, please contact our care team on 0151 343 1960.

This is our first concert and we are delighted to announce that Handbags of Harmonies will be performing on the night.
A Handbag of Harmonies is a choir of vivacious women from Chester and they create a party wherever they go. With their pink feather boas and glitzy handbags, they sing in four-part harmony with dazzling choreography and guarantee to leave audiences with smiles on their faces.
In 2008 they entered their first ever competition: the BBC’s prime time Saturday night talent show, Last Choir Standing. A Handbag of Harmonies was the only women’s choir to reach the top 15 out of nearly 1,000 entries and judge Russell Watson said: “I can’t remember having so much fun watching a choir before!”

George Smith aged 14 was in Alder Hey Hospital when the Everton players visited the ward and gave George an Everton shirt signed by all the players. George asked the players if they would mind if the shirt was donated to Crossroads Care as he would like the shirt to be raffled and the money to go towards buying sensory activity equipment for one of the children’s clubs.
George raised £226.00 for our Children’s clubs and the money will be used to purchase sensory activity equipment.
We are delighted to announce that the winner of George’s raffle was Andi Cooper from Liverpool.
Andi was delighted with the news and can’t wait to have the shirt presented to her.
We would like to say a big thank you to George for taking the time to raise those much needed funds and to everyone who bought a raffle ticket.
“I referred my mum to Crossroads a few months ago for a Bathing service when she deteriorated after a fall, this knocked her confidence and she did not feel safe getting in and out of the bath.
She has severe arthritis in her knees which makes it difficult to walk, also being 90 yrs old means her mobility is limited. I was worried she needed extra support with personal care. I work full time and found it very worrying to leave her to get bathed in the morning.
“I am a 24hr 7 day a week carer, the only repite i get is from Cameo.
My husband attends the Cameo, and I know he will be looked after while I have time for myself”
