Perton Manor is a purpose built 50 bedded care home providing accommodation for persons who require nursing or personal care, treatment of disease, disorder or injury.
It is situated on the out skirts of Perton village in a prime location overlooking pasture land towards the Wrekin hills.
Perton was built on an old airfield which was used in World War 2; it was then developed into housing in the late eighties and now provides leisure activities around the lake and shopping centre.
The Manor House, Perton was previously associated with Shakespeare and the Fitton / Bacon family who were related to Queen Elizabeth I.
Perton came from Pertone, this is derived from Pear Town, the area was well known for pear orchards.
Village life encompasses a strong community spirit of which Perton Manor plays its part by involving itself with as many of the local events appropriate to the clients as possible.
Perton Manor provides accommodation for 50 persons of mixed sex over the age of 45 years.
We hold registration for 50 clients with nursing, of whom we are able to care for those clients who have mental illness, dementia, sensory disorder, physical disability, clients with palliative care needs as well as general nursing/residential care. We are also able to provide day care services seven days per week for a limited number of clients.
As a home we are contracted with South Staffordshire social services, CCGs, etc. and surrounding area local authorities.
Emergency admissions are accepted by the home. Emergency admissions will be accepted as long as an in-depth care plan can be sourced from the referrer. Full details of the client’s needs are to be discussed with the home to identify care needs and ensure the home can accommodate those needs. The group is infamous for those clients requiring crisis intervention management in an emergency situation.
A faxed or emailed care plan will be accepted as long as verbal supporting evidence is given.
Perton Manor supports the dignity in care challenge. We respect our client’s privacy and dignity by supporting and maintaining their independence through personal care, socialisation and ensuring our staff are meeting the client’s needs. We promote client self esteem and motivate them to be actively involved in the homes activities and encourage community socialisation. Promoting independence is a high priority of the homes ethos.

This does not substitute the one to one meetings/chats that can be held at anytime with the manager. The manager has an open door policy, making herself accessible to relatives/Clients/staff when required.

All members of staff maintain and respect the privacy and dignity of each individual by treating them holistically, using privacy curtains when necessary and encouraging the use of locks on doors especially in bathroom areas.
Each client has a service user’s care plan, which is updated and reviewed with the client / family on a monthly basis usually at the same time as undertaking the monthly health check. Key workers are allocated to each client within the team nursing process of the home.
