East Park Court Residential Care Home in Wolverhampton29 Holloway Street, Bilston, Wolverhampton, West Midlands, WV1 2SY
Care home admissions during the Covid-19 pandemic
Safe admissions into our care homes includes the option for new residents to self-isolate in the comfort of their own home for 11 days, before joining us in the care home where they will be tested for Covid-19 and supported to self-isolate for 3 more days until the result of the test is known.
East Park Court is an attractive care home located in a quiet residential area of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. Our dedicated team provides differing types of care and support for our residents, including residential care, dementia care and respite care.
The team and residents at East Park Court feel very proud to be so well connected to our local community.
Children from a primary school in Bilston frequently visit the home. They engage in many activities with our residents, from potting seeds to giving us sneak previews of special musical performances. Recently the residents had a front-row seat to their Greatest Showman dance. They are also often invited to the school to take part in activities there. The home’s King Charles Cavalier Dexter also likes to tag along for a bit of extra fuss!
We have two wonderful volunteers who come to East Park Court every week. One of our two ladies helps our mobile hairdresser with washing hair and making tea and coffee. Another helps out with activities and serving meals at lunchtimes.
The care home has a close partnership with the National Citizen Service. Their 16 to 18-year-old members get involved with all sorts of exciting fundraising projects with us. Recently they helped to support our summer fete, distributing posters to promote it to people in the Bilston community.
Some of our residents also work independently with Healthwatch Wolverhampton. They provide valuable feedback on both access to and the quality of wider healthcare services across the city. This helps to improve the customer experience.
East Park Court is also a partner with HeadStart, The Challenge. An innovative volunteering programme for young people on their journey to employment. We will be welcoming volunteers from this programme at the end of the summer. They will spend time on our residential care floor, as well as with those living with different types of dementia. This gives our residents the chance to welcome fresh faces into their home. It also helps these young adults to develop their own communication skills.
Promoting our residents’ independence
We actively encourage our residents to be involved in every aspect of life in their care home. This empowers them to retain, and indeed enhance, their independence. When employing new members of staff, our residents always meet potential candidates. We offer the chance to ask them questions, providing us with their honest feedback. If a new member of staff joins the team, our residents get involved in their induction process. This helps ensure that they are fully integrated into daily life in the home.
At East Park Court we are able to offer pre-bookable respite breaks. These give people caring for family members at home the chance of a short break or simply take some ‘me time’. This gives the person they look after a change of scenery. But also provides the carer with the peace of mind that the person they care about is being well looked after.
Stories from the home
A wife’s review
“When I visit my husband I see helpfulness, friendliness plus patience, respect and dignity with the way they treat residents".
We are so proud of our glorious gardens, with tranquil seating areas, seasonal flowers, raised flower beds and peaceful walkways.
It’s so important to us that each and every resident enjoy a dignified dining experience, every single day.
We’re always inviting our community into the home and our summer fayre, which takes place in a our lovely garden, is always a hit!
