Where you’ll work

"Redhill Court also has an old fashioned 1940s lounge, with a working terrestrial television box and a record player. Our residents love to pick their favourite records, from Dame Vera Lynn to Elvis. Even occasionally the more modern Backstreet Boys, which is one of our resident’s favourite albums to play! Our residents love receiving visitors to the home. One of the highlights of the week is a local childminding group from Kings Norton who come to the home with their pre-school children. Armed with lego and jigsaws, plus their favourite stories, the children come to our care home and spend time with what has become an extended family of grandparents.

Our residents also love trips out to places like the Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire and The Nature Centre in Birmingham. At The Alexandra Theatre in Redditch, they are welcomed along for dementia-friendly performances, which are also wheelchair accessible."
