A new residential care home is being built in Coleshill, Warwickshire, by Father Hudson¹s Society, the social care agency of the Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham. The new St Joseph¹s care home will accommodate up to 56 residents and comprise four units of 14 beds ­ 2 units on the ground floor and two on the upper floor. Each of the units will be self-contained. The facility will provide care for frail older people, especially those with dementia.
