46 Residential Dementia Places

Mayfields, along with Claybourne, was the first home specialising in dementia care purpose-built to MHA’s design.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place in 1995 with Gerry Marsden from the 1960s Liverpool rock group, Gerry and the Pacemakers.

Garfield Weston Foundation, generous and long-term supporter of MHA, donated £500,000 to the total cost of the £2.2m Mayfields’ development.

From the outset, the home specialised in person-centred care which was developed in partnership with the late Professor Tom Kitwood of Bradford University. Supporting residents by enabling their preferred way of life to be continued, individual needs are responded to and supported. This involves staff really getting to know each person, understanding their life and history, interests and skills and, as a result, their behaviour and needs.

Mayfields was redeveloped in 2006. Three gardens were created in the grounds, each with a distinct character designed to stimulate reflection; Japanese, Cottage and (in line with a UK-wide MHA initiative) Sensory. In this way, the very building, as well as MHA’s dementia specialist care, mirrors and reinforces MHA’s own fundamental ethos of being person-centred in all it does.

My mum, who has advanced Alzheimer's, moved from the family home to Mayfield in November 2014. We visited several care homes and selected Mayfield's as the best home for her needs. It has surpassed all expectations. Every carer I have met over the past two years has been friendly, professional and super caring. Some have worked there for many years, and each has a wonderful rapport with every resident. The meals are freshly prepared on site and delicious. The home itself is marvellously designed, on one level so residents are safe and free to roam, with three winding colour-coded "wings", each with its own kitchen, dining and living room area, a central lounge area for group events (church services, fairs, Christmas dinners, weekly sing-along and music sessions), and access throughout to a walled, safe and beautiful garden with winding paths and benches. Mayfield's has truly become "home" to my mum, and also to my father, who visits her daily and is welcomed by staff on every visit.

My husband became a resident at the end of July 2015. It was a very traumatic time for my husband, myself and all the family. I have found Mayfield to be a very happy place. My husband is so well looked after. He is treated with loving care, kindness and consideration. There is plenty of room for him to walk about both inside and out (no locked doors). Lots of entertainment and activities I also found the staff very kind to myself. I have had many hugs, kind words and cups of tea when I have been struggling with the situation. I cannot praise Mayfield, the manager and all the staff enough.

All care assistants are absolute "Angels" they perform their duties admirably throughout the complete care of the home. The food is excellent, cleanliness also excellent. All care assistants stimulate the residents.

I was fearful of the day when my mother would need to move in to a care home because of her dementia. Mayfields and its staff is, however, the most extraordinary place. The staff are exceptionally welcoming, kind and caring. The place is full of joy, happiness and laughter. Mayfields now feels like an extension of our home. It is very reassuring to know that places like Mayfields exist. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

With my daughter I visited more than a dozen homes to help make the difficult decision as to where my wife who is suffering from Alzheimer's, would best placed. Now after eight months we are so pleased that we chose Mayfields. Maybe this sounds too good to be true but at least for my wife, we could not wish for anything better. The two main reasons for saying this are the care staff who are all wonderful and the purpose built one level design of the home. Personally I cannot think how the design could be improved. the building is so spacious, with its large central lounge and them three independent wings, as in the garden and residents are free to walk anywhere. The person centred care provided by every member of staff is wonderful to behold at any time of the day. The food is excellent. Activities include weekly music therapist and mini bus trips out. It is a real home!

The care my mum received at Mayfields during the five years she lived there was excellent. She was always treated with dignity, and the staff became like family to her (and to us). It really was her home and the place where she felt safe and secure. Even when we took her out for the day, she was anxious to get back. The care, compassion and love shown to her was amazing and a great comfort to us as family.

Mayfields is friendly and supportive to residents and their families. The residents are treated with dignity and respect. the food is excellent, as are the facilities. Sometimes there is lack of communication due to staff changes and also hand overs. I think that greater care could be taken over residents personal property including named clothing. The staff are dedicated and look after the residents very well.

Very impressed with MHA Mayfields. I feel that my close friends are very happy in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings that MHA Mayfields offer. My mother in law was also in MHA Handsworth and she also was very happy there over 5 year stay.

Mayfields is a lovely bright spacious home with a really welcoming atmosphere. The staff are friendly and you can tell they do actually care for their residents. Would definitely recommend this home to others.

Lovely atmosphere of real affection and care created by carers (including chaplain). Clean and bright environment with lots of movement and activity around the place - i.e. not all sitting passively all the time. Good food and care at mealtimes to encourage good nourishment.
