A new state-of-the-art care home in Dudley, is getting set to open its doors for the first time next month. Sedgley Court will be welcoming new residents from mid-November and will provide a safe and luxurious home for up to 66 older people, employing over 50 team members once fully staffed.
Care provider, Ideal Carehomes’ latest development has benefitted from a £10 million investment, giving Sedgley Court all the finishing touches you would expect from a luxurious new home. The spacious en-suite bedrooms and latest care technology will allow the Sedgley Court team to deliver person-centred care in a dignified manner, promoting independence as far as possible.
The well-appointed care home boasts large, open plan social areas and ultra-wide corridors which lend themselves well to current guidelines and is designed with residents in mind. Residents will enjoy all the luxury facilities on offer at Sedgley Court including a luxurious Sky Bar with far reaching views over Baggeridge village, a vintage tearoom complete with balcony area and a plush cinema room featuring its very own popcorn machine.
The newly appointed staff team will complete a thorough induction period prior to the home opening and be given access to industry leading training and development via the ‘Ideal Academy’. The Sedgley Court team have all the tools required to maintain the highest levels of infection control and the Ideal Carehomes ‘Fresh Living’ initiative makes sure that the importance of this is always in mind.
Home Manager, Kim Dean, said: ‘I am extremely excited to soon be able to open the doors of our beautiful home. Our future residents will benefit so much from our facilities and the full and varied social programme organised by our activities co-ordinators. We have had such an overwhelming response so far from local people, for both the first phase of recruitment and from prospective residents. I can’t wait to support our new residents to live life to the full as part of the Sedgley Court community!’.
Stacey Linn, Director at Ideal Carehomes, said ‘The care and attention to detail is clear throughout the home – all our care homes are built with the facilities required to offer quality of life and independence to our residents. It will certainly bring different challenges opening a home at this time, but with Sedgley Court being our 22nd home and with Kim at the helm, I have every confidence that our newest home will be a wonderful addition to the Dudley community!’.
Kim continued, ‘Everything we do at Sedgley Court will put us at the forefront of care and with the established Ideal Carehomes team and policies behind us too, we have all we need to ensure the continued wellbeing of our residents and staff. The brand new build allows us to be completely on top of infection control from the very start and the large social spaces give us the means to social distance with ease. We will be ready to help people in the local community with both short term and permanent placements and I am always here to answer any questions and help to put people’s mind at rest.’
Kim and her team will be hosting exclusive preview days on the 19th and 21st November (subject to government guidelines) which will provide an opportunity to explore the first class facilities, by appointment only, and learn more about the Sedgley Court lifestyle, as well as a chance to ask the team any questions about Ideal Carehomes and their unique Fresh Living initiative.
