Newcross is a Wolverhampton Care Home situated in the quiet suburb of Fallings Park, on Prestwood Road. The home, now firmly established within the local community, has been serving Wolverhampton for over five years under the expert direction of our manager Jill Fletcher, who has been in control since it was a building site. It offers specialist and compassionate residential, dementia and respite care, tailored to individual requirements.
The focal point of the building is its rotunda, which has been decorated with art designed and made by local students working with the renowned sculptor Michael Scheuermann. Inside there are plenty of lounges for socialising or joining in with the lively activities schedule, or just sitting quietly if preferred.
All our bedrooms are spacious, come with walk-in, en-suite showers, have a DVD player and flat screen TV. Residents are free to personalise them as they wish and a housekeeper keeps everything spick and span. Many of the ground floor rooms have direct access to the patio area and there is also a balcony with seating leading off the upper floor.
Keeping in touch is very important, so we have free Wi-Fi access throughout the building, available for visitors and residents. Our own Facebook keeps relatives in touch with our activities and scheduled events, and we can teach residents how to Skype!
We like to promote resident involvement in steering home life and to develop a sense of shared ownership of the home. Friends and families are encouraged to pay their part and are free to visit whenever they want. They are particularly welcome to involve themselves with residents who have memory problems and help the staff to create their life stories, as the more we learn, the more effective we can be.
There is no shortage of things to do, as we have full programme of activities to suit all tastes. We think that keeping mind and body active in the company of others means that adapting to a new way of life and making new friends is that much easier.
Jill Fletcher, our local manager welcomes you to visit or to call her on 01902 866890 if you have any questions.
Ladies In Pink
At Newcross 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. But with two dedicated Activity Coordinators (the Ladies in Pink) at our disposal running a seven day schedule of events, there are plenty of engaging activities to stimulate both mind and body. Here are a sample of our clubs:
- Knitting club
- Bowling club
- Music group
- Gardening club –very active!
- Gentlemen’s club for ex-servicemen
We are also host to many visitors: a church group comes in once a week and children from local schools join us to chat and swop inter-generational gossip! PAT (Pets as Therapy) dogs come too, but they’re not so good at chatting! Wolverhampton Art Gallery is generous in lending us 1950s’ memorabilia from time to time – a really good talking point. The garden is very popular, especially in the warmer months, and the guinea pigs are often a point of conversation with residents as they chat over a pot of afternoon tea.
We get out and about too and use our minibus to take us to about local cafés, pubs and garden centres. If you look at our Facebook pages, you can see what we are up to.

Newcross Care Home
Looked after my Mum for 3 weeks respite care and was so very grateful to them. Well done Newcross.
Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Growing herbs is something that our gardening club likes to do, especially as they can eat the results! The kitchen staff don’t hide away in the kitchen — they are always keeping an eye on what is ready in the garden and enjoy chatting to the residents about what goes on the menu — and receiving compliments! All our food is freshly prepared with local produce, whenever possible, chimes with the seasons, is well balanced and beautifully presented.
We serve three cooked meals a day, and 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. Residents enjoy an aperitif and a glass of wine with their meals, as well as special treats on birthdays and anniversaries, when loved ones like to come along and join in our family atmosphere.
