Welcome to Milverton Gates Care Home
You'll find Milverton Gates in Stoke Heath, a residential part of Coventry, West Midlands.
Here we provide residential and nursing care 24 hours a day. People living here have varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. We offer residential and nursing care, and respite care to give home carers a much-needed break. Some people stay with us permanently, others stay for shorter periods.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.

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.

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.

Milverton Gates Care Home has been the first Four Seasons Home in Coventry to have received their ‘React to Red Skin’ programme accreditation.
Kerry Craddock, Home Manager, said: “This has been a fantastic achievement for the team at Milverton Gate. I am very proud of all the hard work they have put in to meet the standards of the react to red programme, and the positive impact it has had on the home.”
The react to red skin programme educates staff in preventing the incidence of avoidable pressure ulcers which is an essential goal in any care environment.
The home has benefitted from resources, training and the support provided by the clinical commissioning group throughout the programme.
Kerry Craddock added: “I want to thank everyone from the clinical commissioning group who have helped and supported us through this programme. By achieving this accreditation we can reiterate to residents and their families that we do have their care at the heart of everything we do.”
Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care, said: “I want to congratulate the team at Milverton Gate for all of their hard work and commitment. This accreditation is great news and highlights the positive work the home is doing to keep resident care at the centre of everything it does.”
Tara Shields, Clinical Support Nurse from the Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “On discussing the campaign with the manager, it was clear she was enthusiastic about pressure ulcer prevention and accreditation. However what was particularly impressive was her ability to inspire the carers, their enthusiasm and commitment to the campaign was evident.
“I feel confident Milverton will continue to sustain the pressure ulcer prevention measures that are now in place following accreditation and congratulate them on their achievement.”
