Welcome to Hornegarth House Care Home
You'll find Hornegarth House in the village of Great Wyrley, outside Cannock, Staffordshire.
Around the clock, and to meet residents' needs, we provide specialist support, general assistance with everyday living, and respite care to give home carers a much needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others for shorter periods.
Ours is a modern purpose-built home. Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or quietly reading.
They also enjoy our landscaped garden with its patio and comfortable seating areas; and our hair and beauty salon where they can indulge in some pampering.
All these areas are used for relaxing and socialising, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Each of our private single and companion bedrooms has its own en-suite and is decorated to a high standard.
Life at Hornegarth House Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator organises a full and varied activities calendar.
Professional entertainers come to perform, and we run regular visits to local places of interest including the nearby garden centre and theatre. We also enjoy excursions such as canal barge trips.
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 of our dining areas has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, with menus displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
Since this new manager has came to home, she has listened to my needs as well as my mum's. I'm am disabled I needed a bedroom down stairs so we could go & sit in there a watch TV and do things we use to do, I love to make my mum smile. When she was ok she always make a effort everyday put makeup on & so on, now she's got a bedroom downstairs I can take her in there to do her hair & put a bit of lipstick on, just because she's in a care home doesn't mean I treat her any different.
Mum has been a resident for quite sometime, however since the change of ownership and the latest manager, the standard of care etc. has improved greatly. The staff really do care and are efficient in every way. Each resident is recognised as an individual and receives appropriate care. As a family we can see that although mum has late stage dementia she is content, happy and well looked after. This means that as a family we do not have to worry or feel guilty about mom being at this home.
Mum has been a resident for a few years, the staff have always been very caring and helpful. There have been many improvements in the home, it is now very bright and pleasant for the residents. There is new management making the organisation much more efficient.
Staff members are helpful. If we have any concerns we can always discuss it with them and they will always try to help as much as possible always in confidence. Food at this home is very very good, and drinks are served constantly. Home is clean and staff very friendly, we are quite happy with things, but have only been using Hornegarth since August 2015 so early days yet. But as the moment happy, and mom has settled in well.
Staff are so friendly, they care for my husband so well, I even stay and have meals with him.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.
