St John's Court
Location and contact details
St John’s Court is an impressive Grade II listed building overlooking the town of Bromsgrove and commissioned as a care home in the 1980's. Set on the edge of Bromsgrove town centre, the home offers nursing and social care for up to 42 people of both sexes who require care by reason of the physical and social problems associated with old age.
Aims and Objectives: The Care Provided
The management and staff of St John's Court endeavour to provide consistently high standards of professional care in order that residents who have chosen to live in our home can live as normally as possible, where their individuality, independence and dignity are respected and upheld. Where a resident lacks capacity, the provisions of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, are adhered to at all times.
We aim to use our extensive experience to maximise the potential of each individual resident within a homely and friendly setting.
At St John's Court the team provides care for older people who, for physical, health, or social reasons are unable to care for themselves or be supported at home by family and professional carers. Nursing and social care are provided 24 hours a day and the home is fully equipped to cater for people with high dependency needs, who may require end of life care.
We wish to provide the highest quality of care, and, in June 2008, achieved the Investors in People Award. Following reassessment in June 2011, the Trust were found to meet or exceed all indicators of the Investors in People Standard. The United Kingdom’s leading people management standard, Investors in People provides a simple and flexible framework helping thousands of businesses of all sizes and sectors to improve their business performance. The vision of Investors in People is to assist businesses in improving the way in which they manage and develop their employees. The Investors in People Review Report of Somerset Redstone Trust is available to read at home.
