The Mount House is set in one and a half acres of delightful, well-stocked gardens in a premier residential area in Shrewsbury.  Overlooking the River Severn yet only half a mile from the hustle and bustle of the town centre, The Mount House provides a wonderful warm and homely setting for older people requiring residential support and for those requiring dementia or nursing care.  From the moment you enter The Mount House you will feel the warmth that characterises our experienced team of carers and nurses and be comforted by a genuine family atmosphere.

Whether you are looking into care options for yourself or a loved one you can be sure that we can meet your every need with tailored care plans, developed for each of our residents following an in-depth pre-admission assessment.  We like to do what we do well. Our residents enjoy nutritious and delicious home cooked meals freshly prepared every day, using locally sourced ingredients. Our lively social and activities programme ensures that this is a vibrant place to live.   

All of the bedrooms at The Mount House have en-suite facilities affording comfort and privacy, and many boast views of the garden or the West Midland show ground. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture and personalise their room to make it their own.  Our maintenance team are more than happy to help with hanging your favourite pictures on the walls!  

We are very proud of our home and we would welcome the opportunity to show you around The Mount House so please do call us to arrange a visit.

James Stubbs BA (Hons) DipHE RN(A) CMgr MCMI GCGI

General Manager

Welcome to Mount House's website; my name is James Stubbs and I am the General Manager here.

I trained with the NHS and qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1995. My first position as a newly qualified staff nurse was working on a General Surgical ward at the Alexander Hospital Redditch. Looking for a new challenge I joined the Royal Air Force as a qualified nurse in 1995. Following successful completion of basic training at RAF Halton, I was posted to Royal Hospital Haslar in Gosport.

Between 1995 and 2008 I spent time in various posts across the world delivering primary health care services, this included the Balkans, Falkland Islands, Cyprus and Iraq. I graduated as Flight Lieutenant Nursing Officer in late 2008 and from then I was posted to NATO Joint Force Command Headquarters in the Netherlands. I retired from the RAF in December 2014.

The RAF enabled me to gain a BA (Hons) in Leadership and Management as well as qualify myself in Health and Safety. I currently hold the National General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health, National General Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management and a Certificate in Environmental Management.

I commenced my position as General Manager here at Mount House in 2017. I have found that a lot of my military skills have been highly transferrable and have eased my transition into adult social care. I am a highly focused and driven individual who aims to deliver excellence. I am thoroughly enjoying my new role and the diverse challenges that it has to offer. I aim to provide a loving home that cares for all the residents and their families. I have an open door policy for residents’ relatives and staff, and actively encourage anybody to engage with me with their concerns or suggestions.
