My name is Jackie Taylor and I am the Registered Care Manager for Wordsley Hall Care Home. I first started working at Wordsley Hall as a Care Assistant in September 2006 and I was promoted to Senior Care Assistant February 2007. I left Wordsley Hall to gain more experience and further my career and returned as Care Manager December 2010.
The Home is a 41 bedded unit has 4 lounges some with views of the gardens and fields beyond. We pride ourselves in providing the best possible care and we offer excellent home cooked meals and social activities. Wordsley Hall is a late eighteenth century Grade II listed two story Georgian House situated in its own grounds approximately 3 miles from Brierley Hill and walking distance from local transport which is very convenient for visitors.
Wordsley Hall was refurbished by its owners Minster Care in July 2005. This has sought to bring out the best in the home, but at the same time making it a comfortable care home. Bedrooms are tastefully decorated and residents may personalise their bedrooms with their favourite possessions such as pictures and other items of furniture.
We have 1 Dining Room located on the Ground Floor and 4 Lounges. We also have a Tranquility Room where Residents may have head massages or nails painted, a Library, a Park Area and a Hairdressing Salon. On a pleasant day residents may wish to sit outside in the gardens/patio or take a gentle stroll along the road to the canal or glassworks for a coffee.
We have a dedicated social activities person and we have a daily activities programme. There are social activities to suit all residents including quizzes, crafts, bingo and many other interests and pastimes. Activities are conducted mainly in the larger middle lounge although some activities are in the smaller lounge at the back of the building. We also have regular entertainment come into the Home and from time to time there are outings. We also encourage relatives to take residents on outings.
We are continuously reviewing and extending our quality control procedures and updating systems to ensure we provide the highest standards possible within our Home.
