Field House facilities

We continue to be a popular choice for care homes and care services in the local area due to the fantastic facilities and high-quality care offered at Field House Care Home Stourbridge. Field House Care Home is in a beautiful location in the countryside between Stourbridge and Kidderminster overlooking the Clent Hills. The whole estate is set in 10 acres of beautiful grounds with a unique Italian Garden designed by the famous gardener Gertrude Jekyll. The main building is Grade ll listed, first built in 1750. The elegant, stately home then gives way to a more quaint and comfortable Cottage Annex and Coach House towards the back of the grounds.

Both the Main House and the Coach House and Cottage are linked and fully integrated with one another for efficiency. Having these separate areas means that we are able to take great care when assessing a resident’s care needs and ensure that their accommodation is appropriately placed within a setting that best meets their care needs and therefore ensures increased well-being.

Our care home is registered for a total of 54 residents. Although the estate is grand and set in extensive grounds, it still manages to retain its intimate charm. It’s a happy community in the countryside unlike many purpose-built homes situated in semi-industrial urban areas. Our aim is to provide all residents with comfortable and well-appointed accommodation, whilst at the same time providing high quality and person-centred care in a homely secure and caring environment.

The Covid-19 safe care home

During the current Coronavirus pandemic, we want to assure you that we are committed to ensuring that we keep all our residents and staff as safe as possible. All of our residents have been vaccinated and we test all staff daily. It’s difficult to think of a safer place to be and we even managed to maintain ‘covid safe’ visiting through the lockdown.

As Government guidance has changed, we can now offer far more flexible visiting arrangements than hitherto allowed, whilst maintaining excellent Infection prevention and control. We do require that visits are booked in advance by using our online system. We have retained COVID-19 secure visiting rooms show that in the unlikely event of a COVID outbreak. We can still provide for safe visits. Irrespective and in any circumstances where a resident is seriously unwell, we will do whatever we can to facilitate a face-to-face visit and in such circumstances, we ask that you please contact the Registered Manager to agree on an appropriate course of action.

We are ensuring that visits from other groups of people such as suppliers, contractors (e.g. plumbers, electricians) etc a well-controlled and every person has to be tested on entry.

You will have seen the excellent news that the NHS is currently offering additional booster doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to people most at risk from coronavirus. Care home residents should start to receive those from 21st March 2022. Here at Field House, we are actively supporting our residents and staff who want to remain up to date with vaccinations and boosters so that they can do so at the earliest possible opportunity. We are working hard with our local authorities and GP’s to ensure this happens as safely and as smoothly as possible.

Throughout all of this, I do want to assure you that our wonderful staff are doing everything they possibly can to make sure that residents have the best possible quality of life. Equally, we are taking a number of actions to help make sure our staff and their families are supported so they can continue to provide great care through what will continue to be challenging times.

In each home, we have devoted even more resource into activities and improving the overall wellbeing of residents and we would invite you to see some of the wonderful pictures on each home’s Facebook page! We also have free access to Wi-Fi and phones throughout the home, so relatives and residents can video/phone call each other 24/7.

I would like to assure you that we continue to closely follow and comply with all the instructions and guidance from Public Health authorities to ensure that we keep our residents and staff safe.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the home’s Registered Manager.

Thank you in advance for your patience and support – together we will continue to do everything possible to ensure the safety and health of all our residents.

Best Wishes

The Main House

In the Main House we cater for residents who are frail with our care staff to ensure that all residents have their needs and wishes met as required.  We carry out regular detailed assessments for all of our residents to ensure we meet their individual needs. All assessments are confirmed in writing, carefully discussed and reviewed by our team, and unique care plans are formulated according to the resident’s individual care needs and requirements.

There are a wide variety of rooms available, from well equipped and furnished single rooms to luxury apartments for couples. Our care home is fortunate in its settings and location and the majority of rooms have stunning views out onto the countryside or the picturesque grounds.

Coach House and Cottage

The Coach House and Cottage are where we provide focused attention for residents who need specialist Dementia care. This area is linked to the Main House, but can also be accessed via its own entrance. The rooms and communal areas in the Coach House and Cottage have a country style feeling, whilst having distinct areas with their own colourful personality. It is a safe and caring place for residents making their way along their own Dementia pathway. The lively and vibrant environment also provides residents with increased periods of wellbeing.

Our residents are at varying stages of Dementia journey, and all our staff are specifically trained to provide the most suitable and highest level of care to meet each individual’s needs. We deliver person-centred care and ensure that all staff are familiar with each unique care plan. In the Coach House and Cottage, you will often see items scattered around for the residents for sensory stimulation.

Residents here receive the same loving, patient and professional care. Deprivation of Liberty safeguard applications are made for those that lack capacity to ensure that we are working within the legal frameworks when delivering care.

Stunning gardens

In total we have over 10 acres of beautiful gardens most of which is parkland and are great for walks (and also for grandchildren to play in and explore!). Our staff often accompany residents on walks around the grounds should they feel anxious or unsettled, this helps to reduce stress and promote health and wellbeing.

The ‘jewel in the crown’ will be the Italian garden, originally designed by Gertrude Jekyll. There are also a number of smaller enclosed garden areas in which residents can take short walks or simply sit outside in complete safety.

Communal areas

As well as private rooms and boarding, Field House has a number of welcoming and comfortable communal spaces and living areas. Some of these spaces are large, some small, but all are for residents to enjoy and where they can socialise with each other, participate in activities, or simply find a quiet area for some quality time alone should they wish.

A warm, friendly community and environment

In addition to the care that we provide for our residents, we also offer an unparalleled community spirit and family-like atmosphere. To us, there is nothing more rewarding than hearing positive feedback from those we care for, and their family and friends. It is why we focus so much on building a high level of trust and providing emotional, physical and spiritual support.

We are keen to create a community feel within Field House, so as well as everyday care, we regularly organise events and have visitors at the home to bring a social aspect to the week, and to encourage residents to get to know one another. Family members and friends are always welcome at such events, so you can rest assured not only that every resident is well-looked-after but also that there is a vibrant social environment.

Dedicated and professional

We always ensure the home is properly staffed not just with carers but with housekeeping, domestic assistants, laundry, maintenance and kitchen staff. All of our staff are not only experienced but we also make a significant investment in training all staff (our training matrix is available for inspection at any time). We organise our staff deployments and shift patterns so staff support the same residents and build a close rapport with residents, not just offering familiarity and consistency but also developing a detailed knowledge of their needs and wishes.

Many homes say they deliver good quality care, we aspire to do much better than that – it is no wonder that we have so many positive testimonials and strong evidence that residents not only quickly adjust to their new surroundings but also thrive at Field House.

At Field House, we very much encourage relatives and friends to visit residents whenever they are able to do so. We understand that people’s schedules can get busy with work and other commitments so people are very welcome to visit at any time. We are very happy to accommodate family parties or picnics in the garden. We will do whatever we can to ensure that your loved ones are able to participate in family life and special celebrations.
