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

***WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED TO VISITORS***

We are able to offer Skype, when our Activities Coordinator is available, so that there is a means of communication for our residents and their families. If you would like to book a slot, please email the following address and our Coordinator will get back to you in due course: residents1996@outlook.com Please note: she does not work every day, so you may not get an immediate response. Thank you for your patience.

IT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION THAT SOME FAMILIES ARE COMING TO THE HOME AND ARE PASSING ITEMS TO RESIDENTS THROUGH THE WINDOWS. WE WOULD ASK YOU NOT TO DO THIS PLEASE! WE ARE WORKING HARD TO KEEP THE VIRUS OUT OF THE HOME, BUT THIS IS ONE POSSIBLE ENTRY ROUTE.

IF YOU DO HAVE SOMETHING TO GIVE TO YOUR RELATIVE OR FRIEND, PLEASE RING THE DOORBELL AND THE STAFF WILL PASS THE ITEM ON AFTER IT HAS BEEN SANITISED. IF WE ARE NOT CAREFUL, THE ONE THING YOU DO GIVE TO YOUR LOVED ONE COULD BE COVID-19!!!

*******VISITING IS STILL PROHIBITED. PLEASE STAY AWAY, PROTECT THE NHS & CARE HOMES, AND SAVE LIVES!!!!!!**********

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.
