Life in Our Wolverhampton Care Home
Our Home Manager Jill Fletcher has been with the care home from the start and commissioned the home from the point when it was a building site and has moulded the services provided by the home to become one of the pre-eminent homes in Wolverhampton.
At Newcross Care Home we understand that stimulating activity is a key facet of effective care. Many residents enjoy the simple pleasures of life, like taking a walk to the park or the shops for a newspaper. The continuing of their daily routine makes settling in so much easier. These are the things which keep residents independent and develop a sense of ownership of the home.
With two dedicated Leisure and Activities Coordinators running a seven day schedule of events, there's plenty of engaging activities to stimulate the mind and body. Clubs include the knitting club, bowling club, music and choral group and the gentlemen’s club - a place where our ex-servicemen can share their experiences and make new friends. The gardening club have done much to plan and plant the raised beds in the garden. We are also host to many visitors at Newcross Care Home, with a church group coming in once a week as well as the children from local schools who join us to chat to the residents and hear about their lives.
The garden is very popular, especially in the warmer months, and the chicken coop is often a point of conversation with residents chatting over a pot of afternoon tea. Many of the ground floor rooms have direct access to the patio area and there is also a balcony with seating off the upper floor. For a bit of pampering, we have our own salon (which is just like a professional hairdresser's).
Keeping in touch is very important at Newcross Care Home so we have free Wi-Fi access throughout the building.
Residents’ rooms are their own private domain and we encourage them to bring with them personal items and keepsakes to make it feel like home. All the rooms have en-suite facilities with a walk-in shower for comfort.
Our ARIES programme ensures that in addition to informal feedback families have a chance to air opinions and get involved in the decisions made by the care home through meetings and formal assessments.
Fine Restaurant Dining Every Day
Our in-house chef loves getting compliments from residents and their families. The kitchen staff do not hide themselves away in the kitchen - they enjoy coming out into the dining room and serving the residents. This means they can have a chat about the meals, which are all freshly prepared with local produce. We serve three cooked meals a day, plus there is a constant supply of delicious homemade snacks, cakes and biscuits from the kitchen! It is also possible to order food at any time of the day or night, and special dietary requirements can easily be catered for.
Specialist Dementia Care Home Wolverhampton
At Newcross Care Home our specialist Connect programme, a strategy based around the latest expert research, provides dementia care of the highest order. We treat each resident as an individual and our carers get to know everyone personally, allowing care to be tailored accordingly. Using reminiscence therapy, we encourage residents to talk about their lives and memories using props like personal items of clothing and family pictures.
Conveniently Located Near the A460
Our Wolverhampton Care Home is very easy to get to. We are just a few minutes’ drive from A460 Cannock road and only 10 minutes drive from M54 and the M6.
