Aran Court Care Home is a purpose-built home in the Tile Cross area of Birmingham to the east of the centre. We cater for those who need dementia and nursing care which is delivered by our experienced team of nurses and care assistants who are on call 24 hours a day to ensure that residents’ needs are constantly being met. Our aim is to make sure that everyone in our care is happy and comfortable and retains as much dignity and independence as is possible.
We understand that those who need nursing care require extra care and attention. So we pay special attention to our bedrooms: our single en-suite rooms are of a good size and fully furnished with en-suite showers and electric profiling beds that have pressure-reducing mattresses. Residents can have as many of their personal things around them as will fit in.
We are innovative in our approach to dementia care and are confident in our use of technology in this area. With i-pads we can access websites that deal with past events and customs that act as triggers to the memory and as talking points.
Our bright and spacious lounges and dining areas are as welcoming and as social spaces as we can make them. We encourage residents to take part in regular activities, such as armchair keep fit and ball games, and to venture out on trips if they feel able. On the other hand, they can spend time in their own rooms, and eat there as well if preferred.
We extend a warm welcome to family and friends who are encouraged to visit at any time.
To see what we get up to you might want to view our dedicated Facebook that is kept updated with all the activities and goings on in the home, or call our friendly manager Gail Griffiths on 0121 770 4322 who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Some Reviews from Residents and Family Friends
Our friendly Activity Coordinators are dedicated to supporting each resident with plenty of engaging group and one-to-one activities, based on personal interests. We regularly welcome local groups and schools, as well as a range of lively entertainers to perform for us, but we also enjoy exploring local places of interest and keeping in touch with the surrounding community.
We use reminiscing as an effective way of connecting with those with memory loss. This can often trigger animated talk between the residents themselves. The Daily Sparkle reminiscence magazine is a good resource and can spark off a good old singsong or a trip down Memory Lane. We can arrange Skyping sessions for those who would like to keep in touch with people who are far away and cannot visit.
We are committed to ensuring our residents keep going in mind and body, are stimulated and active, whatever their ability level.
Like Mother Used to Make
Food is a vital ingredient to well-being, even more so when you require nursing care. We understand the value of getting the food right and how palates change as we get older, so we make sure that our meals are always freshly prepared and nutritionally balanced. We can tempt people with poor appetites — after all you have to keep your strength up, we cater for any special diets and will go that extra mile for residents who have particular favourites. All the traditional dishes that residents are familiar with will always be on the menu, though our kitchen team like to bring out something a little more exotic from time to time.
There’s always a teapot on the go, with a selection of cakes and pastries that are freshly baked every day, if not exactly like Mother used to make, then as near as possible. Mealtimes are social occasions, but if preferred, meals can be eaten in the resident’s room. On special days, such as birthdays and anniversaries, there is always a cake to complement the celebrations to which family and friends are always welcome.
