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.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Our care teams take the time to get to know those in their care.
At Fernwood Court Care Home in Walsall, they discovered that resident Peter had a penchant for gardening. So they teamed him up with the maintenance man, and between them they keep the home’s gardens in top shape.
Kim-Marie Donaghy, Home Manager, said: “Just because you move into a care home doesn’t mean life should stop. We take the time to get to know all of our residents and provide activities that will stimulate them both mentally and physically. Peter is doing a fantastic job here at Fernwood Court, and it’s great to see him enjoying himself too.”
