Himley Mill is a purpose-built home, set in the semi-rural village of Himley. It is just seven miles from Wolverhampton, and is on a local bus route.
Himley Mill offers a high standard of care. We provide nursing, nursing dementia care, and care for the young physically disabled. We also care for people with Parkinson’s and Huntington’s diseases, and for those with neurological conditions, spinal injuries, or for those who have suffered a stroke. Convalescence, palliative care and respite are also provided. Only registered nurses and highly trained care assistants are employed to provide the excellent 24-hour care and dedication required.
Himley Mill comprises three houses:
Woodlands House provides nursing care for the frail elderly.
Kingswood House offers care for young physically disabled residents, and those with motor and sensory disabilities.
Beech House provides nursing care for residents with dementia and associated illnesses.
We provide a wide and varied menu at Himley Mill. Our chef makes sure that the individual needs and preferences of residents are catered for. There are always plenty of options available including two-course meals, full English and continental breakfasts and desserts. There is also a choice of hot and cold alternatives and snacks. We make sure we celebrate birthdays and notable occasions and work with the activity co-ordinator to ensure that mealtimes are enjoyable and eventful.
We also serve biscuits with mid-morning tea or coffee, home-made cakes in the afternoon and drinks in the evening. Residents can enjoy sociable mealtimes in the dining rooms or, if they prefer, in their own room.
Each of our three houses has its own activities co-ordinator, who supports residents to do the activities they want to do. At Kingswood House, for instance, we have helped our younger residents hold their own karaoke sessions and pub quizzes.
From cookery classes to trips out, there is always something enjoyable for our residents to do, whatever their interests. As well as individual interests and hobbies, residents can also take part in a number of groups or clubs
A hairdresser, mobile library and entertainers visit us regularly. We also arrange a monthly themed event that is always the highlight of the calendar. These are often based on the time of year, for example, a summer fete, Mother’s Day, Christmas or could be part of a larger community initiative.
