We are proud to be one of the first homes to be accredited as part of Barchester’s 10-60-06 Dementia Care programme, reflecting the enhanced quality of dementia care and improved quality of life experienced by residents here at the Wheatlands.

The Wheatlands is a friendly and comfortable purpose-built care home providing care and support for frail older people and for people living with dementia in its specialised Memory Lane Community. Situated in the pretty village of Much Wenlock it is within easy distance of Shrewsbury and Birmingham.

The Wheatlands prides itself on its commitment to independence, dignity and choice. Its approach to care is based on personalised care plans drawn up with the individual and their family and friends, reflecting likes, dislikes and interests. Activities provide a focus for the day and include group activities, baking and cooking, outings and personally tailored activities.
