The Cumbria Emmaus Trust was formed as a charity in June 1987 to provide residential care for elderly Christians.

The house is situated at Moresby Parks and was opened for the glory of God and the care of the elderly in June 1992.

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, preserving their dignity and identity.  Privacy and independence is encouraged at all times.  Our objective will always remain the same….. to provide high quality care in a loving Christian environment.  Pastoral care is provided with the provision of services each Sunday and visits by various individuals.

We have recently been awarded a five star rating which is excellent from the food and standards agency for our food and kitchen facilities.

In our recent inspection (published 21st August 2017) from the Care Quality Commission we were rated as GOOD overall. See for the full report (please highlight, copy and paste into your browser if the link does not work).

There is accommodation for 26 residents (one room is for respite care).
