Livability Brookside is a modern residential care home for disabled adults, set in a leafy area of Edgware, North London.
The service takes a person-centred, flexible approach to ensure residents have control and choice over their care. We know that everyone’s needs and aspirations are different – that all sorts of things add up to a flourishing life.
Residents are actively involved in their community, enjoying regular fitness classes, sports, healthy eating support and much more. Independent living is an area of speciality in addition to nursing care provided onsite.
Together and with the people that use our services, we create bespoke care plans that support needs. Residents are encouraged to participate in all decision-making relating to their own care and well-being.

Person-centred and flexible
Livability puts the person at the centre of their care planning. We help individuals work out what their care needs are, choose the support they want and have control over their life.
We enable connections that help people thrive. Personal health and wellbeing does better when people enjoy supportive networks. We enable the people that use our services to follow their interests and get involved in their community.
Working with strengths
Our focus is on looking at the strengths people have, rather than what they lack. We help people make use of their skills, knowledge and relationships.
Livability has a broad and inclusive Christian ethos. People of all faiths and none are welcomed. We believe in the equality and unique value of every person, supporting everyone to discover and fulfil their potential.
