Proudly Serving Wolverhampton
Newcross is a Wolverhampton Care Home situated in the quiet suburb of Fallings Park, on Prestwood Road. The care home, now firmly established within the local community, has been serving Wolverhampton for over seven years. It offers compassionate residential and dementia 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 to all visitors and residents at our retirement home. Our own dedicated Facebook keeps relatives in touch with activities and scheduled events at our care home, and we have been known to teach residents how to Skype when distance divides!
We like to promote resident involvement in steering home life and to develop a sense of shared ownership of our nursing 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 live with dementia 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.
Our manager Beverley Aldridge welcomes you to visit or to call on 01902 866890 if you have any questions. You are free to visit whenever you like and see for yourself why we are one of the finest care homes in Wolverhampton.Get in Touch
Our Ladies In Pink
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. 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 from the local community: 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, often going to local cafés, pubs and garden centres across the West Midlands. If you look at our Facebook pages, you can see what we are up to.Contact the Home
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 from across the West Midlands, 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.Arrange a Visit
