Carlton Care refurbishes 50-bed facility


Posted on May 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Midlands-based Carlton Care Group is to upgrade its 50-bed Beechcroft residential home in Oldbury. The home is being divided into two units ­ two lounges are being set up, along with two separate dining areas and new kitchen arrangements. Carlton partner Tony Billingham said Beechcroft had been purpose-built by the local authority before Carlton Care Group took the home over 13 years ago. “Since then residential care has become much more socially aware,” Mr Billingham said. “We believe smaller is better ­ by creating two units everyone wins. The staff can find it easier to respond to needs ­ therefore care improves, and the residents can be offered an environment that is much more homely.”
