Our Building and Facilities

Many of our residents, who receive residential care and dementia care, strive to be as independent as they possibly can, and we are here to support them. Before moving into a care home, they would pop to the shops near their homes, many of which were in Birmingham. And they can still do that today as we have our very own old-fashioned shop within the home. Decorated with a vintage theme, you can browse through newspapers from days gone by, as well as choose a sweet treat from a shelf full of traditional sweet jars.

Residents pick up all their ‘bits and bobs’ from their very own store. From toiletries and birthday cards to arts and crafts, our residents decide what we stock on the shelves. And what makes our shop more unique and special than others in Birmingham, is the fact that two of our residents run it.

For our residents who love the big screen, they don’t have to travel far to enjoy their favourite film. We have our very own cinema room. Kitted out with traditional style cinema seating and a popcorn machine, they love to watch the classics in style. Whether Breakfast at Tiffany’s or Singin’ in the Rain, the classic titles often prove to be wonderful for reminiscence, especially for those living with dementia.

We have recently created a tranquil Namaste room. As soon as you open the door, the calmness takes over and your senses are instantly rejuvenated. With minimal natural light the room has multi sensory lighting, a nail bar for hand massages and aromatic oils and candles. Relaxing sounds like birdsong and music personal to each individual resident fill the room, creating the perfect atmosphere. This further supports our team to engage with our residents living with dementia through their senses.

Finally, on top of the usual comforts you’d expect in a care home, we have our very own bistro. Complete with coffee shop tables and comfortable seating, this welcoming space is wonderful for our residents’ loved ones as it’s truly ‘theirs’. With hot drinks, biscuits and delicious home-baked cakes readily available, it is an ideal setting to relax and chat when they visit. This room is also used to hold special family celebrations, from anniversaries to milestone birthdays.

Description

If you were to ask our residents’ loved ones what makes our home truly stand out, they would say our caring team. Not only does our home manager Selina Leone have over 15 years’ experience in the care sector, she also has a long-serving, dedicated and committed team. Many of her care staff have worked at the home since it opened, providing the familiar faces that residents and their loved ones like to see.


The Importance Of Meal Times

At Sanctuary Care we recognise meal times have always been a focus for residents in our homes which is why we invest in fantastic chefs and catering staff who can deliver delicious, nutritious menus and create an enjoyable dining experience for our residents. Some of our residents enjoy getting involved in the preparation and serving of food! You can read more about this in our case studies.

Cooked or continental? Sandwiches or hot food? The choice is yours with residents being involved in creating seasonal nutritional menus from old favourites to trying something new…there’s also always freshly baked cakes to enjoy for afternoon tea.

Midnight snack? No problem, refreshments are available to residents throughout the day and evening if they get a little peckish.

We encourage meal-times where residents can eat together and socialise in a relaxing environment but understand that residents may wish to enjoy food when they and where choose to have it.

Our trained staff understand the importance of eating well and staying hydrated and supporting residents living with dementia to enjoy food in their environment – making food more visible through coloured crockery and more appealing whether it's pureed, finger foods or moulded.
