Fountains Care Home in Shirley, Solihull
Fountains, our stunning new care home in Solihull, is now open!. Our home has been specifically designed with residents in mind, and provide high-quality residential care, and care for individuals living with dementia in a dedicated environment.
Fountains has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.
Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.
Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.
The home has a modern, light design and features a cinema, a private dining space, communal spa baths, adapted cutlery and a personalised activities programme. It is set in stunning landscaped gardens with sensory facilities and low risk walk ways to accommodate individuals with dementia, raised beds to encourage residents to enjoy the outdoor space and a rooftop terrace to relax and unwind in the finer weather.
Our chef provides nutritious and delicious food served in beautiful surroundings, and our own minibus offers excursions as part of a person-centred activities programme. The home is a community hub to connect residents to their neighbours and to promote inclusion and involvement for everyone nearby.
Fountains has its own Memory Lane Community with specialist dementia care and the latest technology—a 'Magic Table'—to provide sensory engagement. The table is an interactive light projector—a unique piece of technology designed to promote mental and physical stimulation through specialised games.
Fountains is a home from home experience, where residents' needs are met with love, respect and consideration, with the focus being on what our residents 'can do' and empowering people to retain their independence.
The home is situated on the site that was known for 30 years as 'Shirley Aquatics' and is within walking distance of Nottcuts, Shirley Golf Centre, The Plough (Beefeater) and The Harvester, as well as Tesco, and it also runs along the X20 bus route.
We have created a video to showcase our stunning care home, which you can view below:
