Welcome to Burrswood Care Home

Burrswood is made up of four separate houses, with each one offering a different level of care – Key House offers residential dementia care, Peel House is for nursing dementia care, Dunster House provides general nursing and Crompton House offers residential care.

We pride ourselves on the warm, friendly atmosphere you'll find when you come to Burrswood and we believe it's the perfect place to stay for either long or short-term care.

Situated in Walmersley near Bury, there's plenty of opportunity to get out and about locally, with trips into the town of Bury (with its famous market), the Royal Fusiliers museum and Burrs Country Park all being close to hand.
