Work starts on new care home in Shirley

Work has started on Solihull Council’s brand new dementia care home in Shirley.

The 60-bed modern, purpose built care home, will be on land just off Tanworth Lane adjacent to a medical centre.  It will help meet the needs of the increasing number of older people in the borough. 

Due to be completed in summer 2019 by building contractor Speller Metcalfe it will provide a mix of affordable care for those funded by the Council, the NHS and people who pay for their own care.  

As the population of older people in the borough grows, so too does the demand for high quality care and support services.  The proposed new home is in response to the Council’s challenge of trying to find affordable care within the borough.

Councillor Karen Grinsell, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Health, said: “As a Council, our aim is to care for people suffering with dementia with dignity and respect.

“The new care home is important to us and we aspire to make it a centre of excellence in dementia care.  It will be purpose built to meet the specific needs of people with dementia and will help us to cater for the growing number of older people in the borough.

“Crucially, it means more people will be able to receive good, quality care in the borough as opposed to moving further afield and away from loved ones.  I look forward to the day, next year when the care home opens its new doors.”

Speller Metcalfe regional director, Rob Lashford, said: “We are looking forward to working with Solihull Council on this much-needed new care home which will provide the community with the highest quality care facilities.

“We have extensive experience in delivering this sort of specialist care accommodation, specifically designed with the safety, comfort and independence of residents in mind.”
