Briarscroft Residential Care Home in Birmingham27 Packington Avenue, Shard End, Birmingham, West Midlands, B34 7PB
Here at Briarscroft, we are proud to say we are more than just a care home, we are a home that has been shaped by our residents and the things they love.
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.
Safe admissions into our care homes include the option for new residents to self-isolate in their own home before joining us.
Our virtual tours enable you to find out more about life in our care home and ask any questions you may have to a senior member of our team.
Safe visiting spaces
Our home has a pre-bookable designated visiting space to enable families to visit their loved ones safely. Please contact our home directly to pre-book.
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.
It is usual for residents in care homes to contribute to the cost of their own care. Some people have the resources to pay for their care in full, whilst others make means-tested contributions. Our weekly fees are individual to each of our residents and are subject to a pre-admission assessment, which is required to truly understand the level of care and support needed. Our 2021 weekly care fees for residential care start from £840, but may be in the region of 20% more*, dependent on your care needs and the type of bedroom that is right for you, from our standard rooms through to our premium bedroom options. *If you require more specialist care such as 1-2-1 support your weekly fee could be higher.

Briarscroft Residential Care Home also provides short-term residential and dementia respite care from the comfort of our beautiful home in Birmingham.
