Don't know what type of care you need? Let us help.

Below are some descriptions of care terms you may have heard. Please have a read, then feel free to contact the care home manager Janet Perrens here at Holbeche House Care Home in Kingswinford, to chat through the specific options we have available.

Residential care

This is for those who may need some help with daily activities such as eating, washing, dressing and getting around, or for those who need a more supportive environment if they're more frail.

Nursing care

Someone may need nursing care if they have a certain physical condition or difficulties. This might include those with long-term conditions, those who need rehabilitation, or those with physical disabilities.

Dementia care

People living with dementia have different needs, so either a residential or nursing care home may be best, depending on each individual. Our experienced teams understand the challenges of living with dementia and are trained to look beyond the dementia diagnosis and to see the person, understand them, and help them live their lives as closely as possible to the way they always have.

End of life / palliative care

It's vital that everyone gets the right care and support at this important and sensitive time. Our caring and compassionate teams can give residents and their families all the time, space and help they need during this difficult period.

Specialist care

Holbeche House Care Home also offers specialist help for adults and young people with different needs, including:

  • Physical disabilities

"I must admit I was reluctant to put my husband into Holbeche House Care Home due I think to listening to what other people thought, although they had no experience of dementia and the care that is needed. I must say all my fears have proved groundless and we are looked after so well, the staff are so friendly and so caring and I feel made welcome whenever I come, this to me is important because it isn't just my husband's life that has changed but also mine. I can go home knowing that he is having the best possible care and for that I am truly grateful."
