Welcome to Fernwood Court Care Home
You'll find Fernwood Court in Walsall, West Midlands, where we provide high quality care 24 hours a day.
People living here have varying needs, from specialist support and help with everyday living to just needing a helping hand to retain some independence.
We offer residential care for people with dementia, dedicated care for younger people with enduring mental-health issues, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some stay with us permanently, others for short periods.
Inside our spacious purpose-built home, residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or enjoying some quiet reading time. We also have a landscaped garden with patio seating area and flowerbeds that residents love tending.
All these areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit. Each of our resident's bedrooms has an en-suite, and is decorated to a high standard.
Life at Fernwood Court Care Home
Our activities coordinator meets each person coming to live here to discuss their social interests. There's always something going on, from quizzes to card games, and music therapy to exercise classes.
Professional entertainers often perform at the home, and we love celebrating residents' birthdays and other seasonal events.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.
I don't know how to thank you all enough for the wonderful way in which you cared for my Dad. You made him feel special and loved. You made him happy.

Colleagues from Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, Havencourt Care Home in Stonehaven and Cumbrae Lodge Care Home in Irvine all came together to do a skydive, raising money for residents in their care and Alzheimer's Scotland.
Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator for Scotland, said: "Everyone was really excited for the jump. One of them hadn't even been in a plane, and they completed it, which was a huge accomplishment. They managed to raise £4,000 which is fantastic. Well done everyone."
Congratulations everyone! We’re all proud of you.
