Dorothy Terry House was formerly a Victorian mansion house which has been completely redeveloped and is now a superb modern, purpose built housing with care development. There are 42 highly specified one and two bed roomed apartments arranged over four level. They have been designed to be fully wheelchair accessible and energy efficient.

Each apartment has a modern fitted kitchen, en-suite bathroom and open plan lounge area and can accommodate individuals living with dementia and also couples where one or both have dementia.

As well as providing high quality living accommodation, the development features communal areas designed to ensure that residents can still lead a full an active life. A lounge, cinema room and library offer social activities in addition to the well-being centre where there is a café, hairdresser and laundry. This centre is for the use of the residents but it is also available to the local community. It provides a hub for the people in the local area to get advice about dementia and dementia care. 

Residents also have the choice of making the most of the beautiful gardens and local amenities; situated in Redditch, the house is set in large attractive grounds and it is also conveniently located close to shops and other local amenities, including public transport.   

In addition to the excellent facilities and great location, the development offers residents the security of 24 hour care and support, from trained staff seven days a week.

Residents receive a check call twice a day and additional care and support are available and can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual. The person being supported is always engaged in the care planning process and can get help with a whole host of things such as medication, benefits and accessing the communal facilities if they chose. Specialist equipment to aid the more frail or disabled residents is available if required and cooking is optional as meals can be provided.

Dorothy Terry House delivers high quality housing with support and care for those living with dementia.
