Thorn Heys

Thorn Heys is the base for our Wirral Learning Disability Service's respite unit.

Our carer pledge

‘We welcome carers onto our wards and embrace the vital contribution they make to achieving the best possible outcomes for patients. This is key to our person centred approach.’


The staff at Thorn Heys encourage evening and weekend activities. These are tailored around individual client choice, needs and wishes.

Every person who stays at Thorn Heys has an individual activity plan, which can be in an easy read format if this is appropriate or requested. Activities include access to the sensory room, and meals and drinks.

Meals and Drinks

Meal times are an important part of the day at Thorn Heys. There are three daily meals provided, and snacks are also available. Hot and cold drinks are available throughout the day.

Special diets and cultural/ethnic requirements are catered for. These are discussed with staff at the initial referral meeting and are regularly reviewed.
