Bushell House is a beautiful Georgian Retirement Home, set in the charming village of Goosnargh in the attractive Lancashire countryside. It was established in 1743 as a charitable trust fund, by Dr William Bushell to provide the highest standard of care and comfort for older people, and is still run as an independent non profit making organisation. We continue to maintain an exceptionally high standard of care, providing the comfort and peace of a real home.
Our ambition is to give all our residents ‘A home in their retirement’. All at Bushell House, including Trustees, Management and Staff, strive to ensure that each resident can enjoy the quality of life to which they aspire. We have a close involvement with the local community, with added support from our ‘League of Friends’. We have an active social programme and dedicated staff team, and we are renowned for our catering.

Review of Bushell House

My parents have been at The Bushells since July 2012. I am so impressed and so are all my parents' visitors. It is like a 5 star hotel. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, Not only do they respond quickly to requests but they are also proactive in providing services. I know there is nowhere like your own home. However, the Bushells is the closest you can get within a safe 24/7 care setting. Visitors are always made welcome and offered meals and I can't recommend it highly enough.
