Respite care at St Joseph's

/media/adults/library/respite-care.jpgCaring for an older person can be demanding, however much you may love them. Sometimes carers need a break, a time to recharge their batteries knowing that their loved one is safe and content.

At St Joseph’s Care Home, Coleshill, we get to know our residents and welcome them into our community, whether they plan to stay for two weeks or the rest of their lives. Our trained and dedicated carers work with families to understand the person they are being entrusted to care for – their likes and dislikes, the story of their lives, the person they have been as much as the person they are now.

St Joseph’s specialises in care for people living with various types of dementia and is divided into four self-contained wings. It has a homely feel, with parts of the building decorated in a style reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s, to help bring back memories. Our chefs are highly rated and the views over the rural Blythe Valley are second to none!View over the Blythe Valley

Situated just a mile from the M6 and M42, and three miles from Birmingham International Station, St Joseph’s is in an excellent location, close to all the amenities a small town has to offer.

Our residents speak highly of the tranquil setting, the excellent food and the activities and social events on offer. Entertainment is varied to suit all tastes and interests. Musicians, dancers, florists, exercise instructors and others all drop in to provide a variety of things to do or join in with.

Even those who do not practice any form of religion appreciate the Christian ethos that guides the way we care for one another at St Joseph’s. Catholic priests living at St Joseph’s celebrate Mass daily for those who wish to attend, and the Anglican vicar of St Peter & St Paul in Coleshill provides a regular service.

Quality Assurance

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) last inspected St Joseph’s on 13 August 2018. The inspector considered the service to be good in terms of its effectiveness, responsiveness and delivery of caring. The report, however, identified aspects that could and should be better. Among other issues, catches needed to be fitted to first floor windows, and we installed these the very next day; also, our newly appointed manager needed to complete the process of registration, which is now done. The inspection led to St Joseph’s being given the ‘requires improvement’ rating. We are looking forward to the next inspection, when we hope to demonstrate that St Joseph’s has indeed improved. The full inspection report can be found on the CQC’s website. You can find out more about the CQC at
