Meet The Manager

Jenny Mullinder is The Home Manager at Silver Birches.

Jenny Mullinder is interim Registered Manager at Silver Birches. Jenny started working in residential care 40 years ago. She has travelled through the ranks, delivering care, progressing to senior roles and more recently, managing day care centres, extra care schemes and residential care homes.

Silver Birches is a residential care home in Chelmsley Wood, Solihull, catering for up to 50 frail elderly adults with dementia in ensuite individual rooms.

Comfortable, well-equipped facilities and a dedicated, qualified team of staff mean that individual needs are well-met at Silver Birches. Communal areas include a lounge, dining room and conservatory, all of which contribute to a homely and friendly atmosphere. Hairdressing services are also available on site, with other shops and community services close by.

Silver Birches uses the Eden Alternative, an approach that focuses on improving the ageing experience by engaging residents with plants, animals and children in a variety of activities, from flower arranging to cooking and crafts with local Brownie groups. In a six month trial of Eden at a similar Accord residential home, the number of residents using psychotropic drugs as part of dementia treatment fell from 47% to just 2%.

Infection control and the safety of both residents and staff often requires quarantine measures and the isolation of care home residents. To test, monitor and allow residents to communicate with relatives, the prevalence of room-level connectivity within the home is becoming increasingly relevant.
