What families say
“Pelsall Hall is a wonderful, caring and very homely place. From our first initial contact with Pelsall Hall just over 2 years ago, we knew this was the best place our mom could be. We have experienced lots of happy moments at the home with mom- there is always lots of family events going on. I.e. Christmas shows, singers, animal visits, musical events, summer fair and bonfire night display. Everyone is always welcome. The care mom receives is fantastic and the attention shown by the staff to mom and all the other residents is genuine and comforting to see. After a spell in hospital in January 2016 we were so glad to be able to bring mom back home to Pelsall Hall where we know she is safe and well looked after.”
Daughter of Resident - February 2016

“Pelsall Hall is to sum up in one word is "Brilliant" my father came here nine weeks ago. It is a great relief to know my father is here knowing, how well he is here. The home is spotless, the food great, great room always clean and tidy. When I see dad, he seems to improve on every visit looking calm and relaxed. He is very well groomed and looks great! I think it is very important to know how good the staff are here, very kind, caring and helpful. As a family and on behalf of my dad "Thank you".”
Son of Resident - January 2016

“We looked at most of the homes within a ten mile radius and found Pelsall Hall way superior to the rest. Dad moved in and within days was a different man. Staff had got him mobile and eating well. We find the staff team really care; Steve the manager and Lynda the deputy manager are brilliantly helpful and caring also. The organisation should bottle Pelsall and share all over Walsall.”

Message from the manager:

Hi, my name is Steve Brookes and I am the Home Manager of Pelsall Hall.

I have over 30 years experience in the care sector, the last 16 years of which have been in a managerial role. I believe that the residents we support are the drivers of any service delivery. The approach we take in delivery of care can and will change with increased needs, and the changing wants and desires of the resident group.

My style of management is consultative. I believe that anyone affected by a decision may effect should have input in making that decision. I have a wide skill base within my staff team and feel that each person can offer a lot to the older people we support and to each other. Pelsall Hall is committed to the Eden Alternative philosophy of person-centred care.

Cognitive stimulation therapy at Pelsall Hall

September is World Alzheimer’s Month – an international campaign to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s and challenge stigma associated with the condition. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia which affects memory, thinking, problem solving and language.

Greensleeves Care, a national care charity, has responded to this challenge by introducing a dementia service at all its care homes including Pelsall Hall in Walsall. As part of its dementia service, the charity has changed the way it recruits and trains its staff and has created a dementia friendly culture within all its care homes. The care provided to residents is based on the principles of ‘personhood’ by Dr Tom Kitwood. He identified that all human beings have the need for comfort, attachment, inclusion, occupation and identity. These needs are even more significant for those living with Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia.

At Pelsall Hall, staff introduced a number of therapies and activities that help people living with dementia to communicate and stimulate their memory. One form of therapy that was found to be of particular benefit for people in the mild to moderate stages of dementia was Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST). This form of therapy uses many researched therapeutic approaches in structured 30-45 minute group therapy session. It helps with memory and communication.

A typical CST session at Pesall Hall involves listening to a chosen song, which forms an introduction to the session, and acknowledging key details such as the date, season and weather. This is followed by 14 different structures when residents look at current news stories with discussion and the sharing of opinions. They may play games such as skittles where scoring can be kept to prompt numerical skills or take part in a physical activity. The therapy session finishes with the same chosen song and a date for the next session is agreed with the group.

Fiona McCracken, Activity Coordinator at Pelsall Hall said: “We found that Cognitive Stimulation Therapy is the best form of therapy for people living with dementia we tried at Pelsall Hall. Our residents greatly enjoy the sessions and we found that with time they remember more and complete numerical tasks more easily.”

In addition to Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, the home has also introduced music based percussion programme called BEAMZ where residents with dementia can use arm movements to break beams of light to play along to familiar songs they choose.
