Albion Court is a purpose-built care home on Clinton Street, in the Winson Green district of Birmingham, close to the city centre. Our residents are drawn from across Birmingham, from towns such as Sandwell, Handsworth, Ladywood, Bearwood and Smethwick.
We are a diverse bunch and that includes our excellent care teams and support staff. We are definitely more than the sum of our parts! Our rich cultural mix is reflected in our meals and the entertainment we enjoy. It is something in which we are very proud. We have a strong community outreach programme, and welcome many groups into our home but we also like to get out and spend time embedded within the various communities from which we draw. We are very much a reflection of Birmingham’s rich cultural heritage and rightly so.
The range of activities on offer is also varied; including monthly visits from professional entertainers such as Bollywood dancers, African drummers, Soul and Mowtown artists, Jazz musicians and classical music performers. There are regular services from representatives of various faiths and local churches, including a monthly visit from a local church gospel choir.
Albion Court has been designed to be a communal and comfortable environment, where we can deliver a high standard of round-the-clock care that centres on the well-being of each individual. We stress the importance of a holistic approach in home life, giving both mind and body equal care and attention, along with the values of respect and dignity.
Our light and airy bedrooms have walk-in showers, and can be equipped with electric profiling beds if needed. Residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms as much as possible, and we find having familiar things around them eases the transition into their new home.
Our lounges provide a relaxing, communal atmosphere, with plenty of space for activities as well as quiet areas for those who prefer a more peaceful atmosphere or want private time with loved ones. Many of the doors open out onto gardens, bringing the outside in on warmer days.
We encourage as much contact with friends, families and community groups as possible, we believe that everyone should be able to maintain the relations they had prior to arriving at Albion Court. It’s all part of our philosophy of care, we understand that good care and companionship is built on lasting, stable relationships.
If you would like to know more about life at Albion Court, please call our Home Manager Mike Commins on 0121 554 7261. He will be pleased to answer any questions and arrange a show round.

Friendly and Fun
Life at Albion Court is as fun and engaging as we can make it. Our Well-being Coordinators see to it that there are a diverse array of activities that reflect our diverse cultural mix, that are suitable for all levels of ability and we positively encourage the development of individual hobbies and interests. Some of the activities most popular with our residents include music of all backgrounds, poetry, quizzes, arts and crafts, armchair exercises and film screenings. For those who want it, we also receive guests from different local faith groups on a regular basis.
We regularly have live entertainers to perform at the home as well as visits from local schools – children can always be guaranteed to raise a smile. In fact we welcome all friends and relatives to visit and bring children and grandchildren with them, so that connections across the generations can be maintained. On top of this, we love to explore outside the home in our own minibus. The shops are always a favoured destination, as is the Sea Life Centre in the centre of Birmingham, and the occasional tasty meal at the local pub always goes down well.Contact the Home
Our Cuisine: a Rich Mix
Our care home in Birmingham is a proud, bustling, diverse community of residents, our home is a welcoming and energetic place, with English, Asian and Caribbean cuisine served daily including Halal, Vegan and Vegetarian options. There is always choice and if you dont fancy what is on the menu then you can ask for something else.
We enjoy many themed culinary evenings and residents are keen to share their recipes with chef and his team. Recent evenings have included dressing up and national costumes, plus family and friends of course. Everyone joins, even the staff, who all reflect Birmingham’s diverse communities.
Of course we all enjoy special treats and our chef team provide us with a steady stream of cakes and biscuits, the perfect accompaniment for afternoon tea and something which goes down very well with our younger guests and other family members.

Eat What You Fancy
We realise that mealtimes are focal and important times of the day, so we do our best to ensures that the varied menus we offer are both nutritionally balanced and as appetising as we can make them. All our food is freshly prepared in our own kitchens and where possible, locally sourced and seasonal. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requirements and that special something that a resident might suddenly fancy. In addition, residents can enjoy a selection of freshly baked cakes (residents might know them as ‘fancies’), snacks and fruit throughout the day — perhaps taking them outside when the sun shines.
Coming together to eat is an integral part of life at Albion Court, but residents can always take their meals in their own rooms if that is their preference. Our staff are sensitive to particular needs and are as accommodating as possible. You can be sure that there will be a mouth-watering home-made birthday cake for those special occasions, when family and friends are always welcome to join us.Arrange a Visit
