Our newest Care Home in Walsall, Willow Rose

The latest Macc Living care home development received great praise when visited by stakeholders from Walsall Council and the CCG.

Our new development New Rose, in Short Heath, Walsall, was visited recently by stakeholders from Walsall Council and the CCG as part of a constructive engagement during the build. In-depth discussion on the historical aspect of Walsall resulted in a desire to keep the name and the local connection in place. Councillors were really excited about the development, which they feel will be a fantastic asset for the local community.

This 73 bed state-of-the-art care home, currently under construction, will be run by Macc Care and will have large communal facilities including a café, cinema, gymnasium, wellness suite and a faith room. Visitors seemed greatly impressed with the size of the rooms, design and amenities available. The home will also offer high quality dementia care for its residents, this will be monumental as there is currently a very short supply of this essential care in the local area.

Macc Care who will be running the new care home understand that it can be difficult to care for a loved one with dementia, especially as their symptoms get worse over time. But it can also be even harder to make the decision to move them into a care home. Macc Care have extensive experience in dealing with these situations and will do everything possible to make this transition as smooth and friendly as possible. Their friendly staff will be on-hand to meet every need and with their knowledge and expertise, you’ll be able to rest assured knowing that your loved ones are in the very best of hands.

Macc Care is very proud to assure the provision of care for BME communities. There are now more than 25,000 older black and minority ethnic (BME) people living with dementia in the UK. This is partly due to vascular risk factors such as hypertension, which is often found in African-Caribbean and South Asian populations across the UK. Unfortunately, there is a lot of evidence to show that people from these BME communities don’t know where or how to find information about dementia, or seek the care and treatment they need. However, we are hoping to change that by implementing the necessary resources to assist local BME communities and their loved ones.

Although it’s something we don’t like to talk about, it’s important to think about end of life care for either yourself or your family. Sometimes referred to as advanced care planning, this process involves thinking about your wishes and how you’d like to be cared for in the final parts of your life. Planning ahead is so important, whether it is for yourself or a family member. Having the right care in place will help make those last few moments as comfortable and stress free as possible, enabling time with your loved ones to be cherished and not consumed by end of life plans. Our latest Macc Care home will be looking to provide end of life care to support those who need it and help manage the multiple actions required during this process. This will greatly help local families during those difficult times to ensure their loved ones are cared for and most of all, happy, during this time.

Macc Care will continue to actively engage with the surrounding community, local schools and social groups to create an effective partnership from the start. They will also be working closely with local hospitals to help them with bed shortages and taking some of the pressure off, especially during any particularly busy periods.
