Conveniently located adjacent to Macclesfield District General Hospital where Prestbury Road meets Cumberland Street, our new care home enjoys a mature setting only minutes away from Macclesfield town centre.

Prestbury House is set amidst the major redevelopment of the old part of the hospital site, ideally placed to serve the elderly residential, nursing and dementia care needs of the local community.

Specialist-designed and purpose-built in a contemporary style, the home offers three floors of generous accommodation. Spacious bedrooms and plenty of day rooms are keynotes of the home’s design, which focus on offering a comfortable, active lifestyle for residents.

To arrange a visit, please either call our home manager, Lance Tipper, or simply complete our contact form to the right on this page.

Donkey Sanctuary
Tuesday 16th February, 11:00am
The donkeys prove to be a great stimulation and provide valuable assisted therapy to residents. The emotional and physical benefits of companion animals are now being established and spending time with animals can have a direct calming influence. The donkeys also love the warmth and affection from residents so the animal assisted therapy goes both ways!

Manchester United Museum & Tour
Thursday 25th February, 11:00am
Our residents will be going behind the scenes at Old Trafford and see the stadium through the eyes of Manchester United greats themselves. From the dizzy heights of the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand, to the atmosphere soaked players’ dressing room, every moment will seem to carry the roar of 76,000 fans in your ears – none more so than the ultimate honour of emerging from the players tunnel and following in the footsteps of so many legendary reds.

All this is happening as well as our regular groups. Contact us today on 01625 506 134 to find out more about these upcoming events and activities, or why not suggest an activity yourself.


We all had a lot of fun recently in our truly green-fingered competition, which began in chilly January and bloomed beautifully in late September. All our homes took part and lovely Michelle Walton, our Leisure & Wellness Coordinator, had been a real driving force behind the whole thing as everyone lovingly planted, watered and nurtured their projects in anticipation of the judging on September 24.

Astbury Mere won overall but Prestbury won the Sensory Space category and scooped two commendations for Michelle and Les Moseley. Frances Tophill, presenter on ITV’s Love Your Garden, gave out the awards. So well done everyone who took the time to participate, help and encourage. Big thanks too go to charity Food4macc’s Stuart Potter and volunteers, who built our raised beds that will be producing some delicious veg for some time to come and Macclesfield Garden Centre, who donated pots and baskets. A blooming success all round!
