Emmaus House

Residential Care Home

"And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them." Luke 24:15

Due to the increasing numbers of Covid cases in the area, we have taken the decision to re-introduce facemasks for all staff and visitors entering the building, effective from 4th July 2022. Visitors are also asked to refrain from wandering around the building and should remain in the room of the resident you are visiting. Due to the size of our rooms, we ask that only one or two people visit any room at the same time.

We are Covid-free at present. If this situation changes, we will need to impose some restrictions once again.

Please continue to arrange your visit in advance by ringing 01946 591362 [option 3] and speaking to the supervisors.

As ever, the situation may change in due course as the infection rate varies or as more guidance is released.

Thank you for your patience over the last two years.


Emmaus House is located at Moresby Parks, Whitehaven and was opened in June 1992 for the glory of God and to provide care with an optimal quality of life, comfort and dignity. The Cumbria Emmaus Trust was formed as a charity in June 1987 to provide residential care for older Christians.


24 hour care is provided for long term or respite care requirements. The emphasis is placed on high quality individual care and attention to each resident, in a loving Christian environment.

Emmaus House provides care for people arranging their care independently and those referred to us through Social Services, those who require short periods of respite care and more.

Cumbria Emmaus Trust believes that our Christian ethos is based on the need to express Christ’s love to those whom we serve as residents in Emmaus House, to the staff and to all who interact with us.
