Welcome to St Andrews House


St. Andrew’s House was established in 1987 on the town centre of Barnoldswick, a friendly small town in East Lancashire and is still owned by the same family. It is a two storey, purpose built, nursing home, originally dedicated to providing full care for young adults with complex medical and physical disabilities. The home has built up an enviable reputation across Lancashire and Yorkshire for its high quality care, by offering a range of health and social care solutions, which now also include older residents. We welcome residents with complex nursing or care needs, palliative and end of life care, and for respite and convalescence.

There is an excellent selection of amenities right on our doorstep in the wheelchair friendly town centre, and, over the years, our residents have been regular visitors at the local shops, tearooms, pubs, library and swimming pool. The doctors, chemist, optician, and dentist are all within 100 yards. Our long association with the local people, participation of our residents in the Disability Access forums, and most local activities makes Barnoldswick a true extension of our home into the community.

Our Facilities


We have a total of twenty two beds in 17 spacious single rooms and three double rooms with en-suite toilets and washbowls. Our double rooms are mostly used for friends or partners, or married couples when both have need for support and nursing input.

The atmosphere is relaxed, homely and informal. We have an open door policy encouraging friends and relatives to visit easily and residents to come and go into the town centre as they wish, with help when needed, enabling everyone to enjoy being a full part of local life. St Andrew’s is where people can really live…..the staff just facilitate their lives.
