38 Nursing Care Places

Purpose-built in 1992, Kingfisher House offers nursing care to 38 residents alongside Herondale, which was purpose-built in 1993 to provide 36 nursing dementia places. The homes were acquired by MHA in 2005.

The homes are located between Birmingham Heartlands Hospital and the site of the former Yardley Green Hospital. The latter is in the heart of a regeneration zone and has recently seen the opening of the Tamarind Mental Healthcare Centre adjacent to the homes. There is a flexible approach to caring, summed up in the comment of one resident, "If there is ever anything I don't want or like about the food on offer I am given something of my choice to have instead. I am always looked after. I am happy."

Whilst the care for residents is central to the work of Herondale/Kingfisher House, staff members are also aware of the positive impact that their work can have on family members. "We feel privileged that she was accepted by you into such a caring, compassionate and loving community," wrote one grateful relative about a loved one. "The burden on us to find the 'right' home was enormous. We found you. We could not have chosen better. We will always be grateful and think of you as part of our family. We could rest day and night knowing that she was in the very best of care 24 hours a day."

My father was put into Kingfisher Nursing Home from hospital for end of life care, as he was given 2/3 weeks to live. We were devastated because we had had him bedridden at home for two and a half years. But he was given the best care we could have wished for, kept clean, comfortable, treated with dignity at all times. The staff were always patient, friendly and very supportive to all of his family. The home was brightly maintained, beautifully inside which gave you a very warm feeling. The outside had lovely lawns, trees and flowers. A nice outlook for the residents and family. It had a homely feeling.

Kingfisher House has a superb ambience.Most friendly management of staff, treating residents and visitors like old friends. My friend who is very elderly and has gone through many traumatic months since October 2016 has come on leaps and bounds in the two weeks she has been in Kingfisher House.

My neighbour resided in here for only a few weeks but I was so happy with the care he received. All staff were attentive, personable and knowledgeable. I can't thank the staff enough for treating him so well and with such dignity, making his last few weeks as easy as possible for us. All staff were friendly and acted in the best interest of the service user and should be commended. Thank you for everything. A special thank you to the staff.

My mother was transferred into Herondale after a pretty traumatic time at another care home.On our initial visit to Herondale, we were welcomed by very friendly staff and we immediately felt this was the best place for my mother to be looked after. During her time there she was kept clean, fed well and her general hygiene was immaculate. The staff were friendly and accommodating and the one to one supervision she received was excellent. I would definitely recommend this home to any other families who are unfortunate to have family members suffering from dementia.

My father in law has been a resident here for almost two years now and he has not been the easiest of people to care for in the early days but the amazing staff here took their time to get know and understand him and his needs and we truly believe that is the reason we are lucky enough to still have him with us today. From the management to the care staff there is only one word to describe Herondale Care Home and that is quite simply AMAZING. Thank you for all you do for our family.

As a family, we had to make a decision that the best way forward was to find a care home for our dad. After much searching, we found Kingfisher and what a treasure this turned out to be. We were always made to feel welcome when visiting, in fact, we were told to make it our home. The staff are so committed to the residents and visitors and everyone is on first name basis. Dad was there for five months and passed in Kingfisher two days after his 85th birthday, the dignity and professionalism from management superseded all our expectations. Thank you very much for all the care and attention that you showed us and thanks to the other residents and visitors who we met as strangers but left as friends.

I always admire the total dedication of all the staff to the care and understanding, not only to the residents, but relatives and friends. Each individual residents needs (which are varied) are catered for and respected. 9.9/10.

My father spent 4 months in Herondale before passing away. He was treated with the utmost respect and received loving and wonderful care during his time there. The staff were always friendly and so kind to the residents and family. You could visit when ever you wanted and it was always the same. You could tell how well looked after the residents were and the home felt very happy and full of love. My dad sadly passed away due to his dementia and myself and my brother stayed at the home for 4 days and nights during this sad time. The staff treated us so well emotionally and physically, feeding us and offering support. My dad had a very peaceful passing which was partly due to the loving surroundings he was in. I could not begin to thank the staff enough for the way they cared for my dad.
