A brand new residential and nursing home at Chelmund's Cross Village Centre was officially opened by the Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Stuart Davis, on 8th November 2017.
Chelmund's Court is a purpose-built 73-bed home for older people with dementia, run by Runwood Homes Group alongside Solihull Council.
The Council has secured 63 of the beds for the next ten years, which will ensure that local people will have better access to high quality, affordable care in the future.
The new home has been built in response to the consistent challenge this causes the Council when trying to find affordable care within the Borough.
Karen Murphy, Assistant Director of Commissioning said: "We have been working with Runwood on the new home since early last year and it is great to see it come to fruition.
"The home is a fantastic new facility for the Borough and will help some of the most vulnerable in our society - older people suffering with dementia to remain part of the community where they have lived and worked and most importantly, be close to their loved ones."
