A care home in Sutton Coldfield is celebrating after being recognised as one of the best in the West Midlands.
The carehome.co.uk Top 20 Care Home Awards highlight the most recommended care homes in each region of the UK, with awards based on over 120,000 reviews received from residents, and their relatives and friends.
This year, Care UK’s Mercia Grange on Lichfield Road received the prestigious distinction and was named among the best care homes in the West Midlands for the 2019 awards.
Shirley Gibbs, home manager at Mercia Grange, said: “I’m so pleased that we have been named in the top 20 care homes in the West Midlands. This is a wonderful accolade to receive and testament to the team’s hard work to create a home-from-home environment, where residents are encouraged to remain as independent as possible, living happy and fulfilled lives.
“To receive this award after opening just last summer is fantastic. Our ethos is focused around activity based care, and encouraging all residents to maintain their hobbies or take up new ones. From taking part in the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch, to welcoming a dementia-friendly barber to the home for International Men’s Day, and making a resident’s wish come true with a trip to watch Aston Villa – there’s always something exciting happening at Mercia Grange!”
The home was rated on: overall standard; facilities; care and support; cleanliness, treated with dignity; food and drink; the team; activities; management; safety and security; the rooms and value for money.
Mercia Grange is a state-of-the-art care home which provides full-time residential, nursing, dementia, and short-term respite care. The three-storey care home, which features 67 ensuite bedrooms, has been designed to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives, while also promoting independence. The care home incorporates space for hobby and leisure activities, and includes its own cinema, hair salon and café.
