Chandler Court is a brand new, purpose-built care home providing a full range of quality, personalised care for older people. Care services range from respite and residential care, to palliative and specialist dementia care.
Everything about the home is designed to enable residents to enjoy the very best lifestyle. The home has a café, hair salon and cinema, and a wide range of tailored group and one-to-one activities are planned each week. Entertainment and outings are organised regularly too. Residents are supported to keep busy with routine tasks around the home, and to continue visiting friends and clubs in the community to help them stay active and independent.
Each bedroom at Chandler Court has its own en-suite wet room, flatscreen TV and 24-hour nurse call system. Food and dining are a big focus too: the chef-led catering team pride themselves on creating delicious dishes all tailored to residents’ tastes and residents have the choice to eat whenever they wish.

Job Title: Home manager
I’ve spent three decades working in the care sector and fifteen years managing care homes. I moved to Care UK in 2015 because I really liked the ethos of the company and was impressed by its reputation.
Being a home manager is challenging, but hugely rewarding, and that’s particularly the case as we’re getting a brand new home off the ground. You have to wear many ‘hats’ and be unfazed by pretty much anything in this role. But, no matter what each day brings, I’m happy if the residents are happy – I love seeing them smiling and enjoying their day.
I’m very excited by the prospect of setting up and developing Chandler Court, and of working with the leadership team and home colleagues to make the home part of the community of Bromsgrove, and one of the top care homes in the West Midlands.
