Hillborough Road, Olton, Solihull
Alexandra House is a modern purposely designed residential care home, catering for 36 older people in nicely furnished and decorated self-contained rooms. The home certainly has a welcoming atmosphere with a number of bright and airy informal sitting areas – including a very popular large conservatory. The home is located in safe and secure environment with pleasant landscaped gardens, and every room has a nice outlook.
Most importantly though the home is well run by a highly qualified Manager Susan James, and her experienced team of dedicated, NVQ qualified staff who have also received specialist training in caring for people developing dementia. They provide continuity of care and most of our staff here have worked for the Trust for many years.
All meals are prepared fresh and are cooked 'on site' to a high nutritional standard in our well-appointed kitchen by our catering manager, and her team, rated 5 Stars for excellent food hygiene by Solihull Council. Our catering team are highly experienced in this area, consult with residents on menu planning and are able to cater for people with special dietary needs.
Alexandra House is registered with the Care Quality Commission and enjoys an excellent reputation from the regulators, Solihull Council, and our local health care professionals. Providing individually tailored care plans and then actually delivering consistently high care services is without doubt the number one priority for everyone involved.
We organise regular visits from dentists, the chiropodist, opticians, and the district nursing team.
We also hold regular Residents meetings to ensure that the views of our residents are taken into account.
Susan James, our Registered Manager, would be very happy to show any interested residents (or their family/carers) around the building and also a typical room. Please contact our Customer Services Team if you would like to come and have a look around on 0121 245 1002.
We have set up a “Friends of Alexandra House” Group for relatives of people living in the service and others who are interested in the service who may be a previous residents relative.
This group meets with the management team and discusses changes, developments and provides the opportunity to share views and opinions. It also focuses on what we could do to improve the lives of those living in the service.
If anyone would be interested in being a part of this group, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

Scale of Charges from 1st April 2023
Resident Involvement Champion
A care home which is open to the local community can provide many benefits to the residents by means of interaction with the community outside its doors.
Going out can support independence, resilience, self-esteem, group solidarity and individual mobility. Bringing the “outside” in, can widen residents’ horizons, multiply services, combat loneliness and depression, and break down stereotypes. SJMT recognised that our residents needed someone they can talk to about their wishes, wants and ideas for activities in and out of the care home. We are delighted to announce that Annabel Tomlinson has now taken on the role of Resident Involvement Champion.
Having this new position, she will provide all residents, staff and relatives a key person to discuss activities or interests and make any suggestions with. This designated staff member will be champion for the views of our residents and look to encourage a community spirit.
