Dementia care at Solihull's Royal Star and Garter homes branded 'exceptional'

Solihull Editorial 13th Aug, 2018   0

DEMENTIA care at a Solihull home which cares for former soldiers has been branded “exceptional”.

The Royal Star and Garter Homes Solihull has held on to its level 1 accreditation by Dementia Care Matters, following a recent, unannounced visit.

The Monkspath Hall Road home is one of the one per cent of care homes in the country to have attained this level of accreditation.

Rachel Christophers is a well-loved friend of the Solihull Home, where her husband, Theo, an Army veteran, lived with dementia until his death earlier this year.

She said: “Theo received amazing care at the Home. I don’t know another place like this.

“The Care Team are exceptional: they bring life-giving and positive energy all the time, enabling residents to play their own part in this wonderful and vibrant community.”

The Charity’s Director of Care, Pauline Shaw, said: “This is absolutely fabulous news – I am delighted for the Solihull team who give it their all every day.

“As we know, ‘people make a home’, and all of the team have contributed to this inspiring success – to have maintained a level 1 is simply outstanding.”
