Shire Oaks Court is now open

We’re delighted to announce that our new complex needs care home in Walsall, Shire Oaks Court, is now open.

Shire Oaks Court supports adults living with complex mental health needs, neuro-disabilities and physical disabilities. 

The team were delighted to open their doors last week and introduce their first resident to their new home. 

A new standard for excellence

Charlotte Lloyd, Director of Commissioning said: "We are thrilled to announce the opening of Shire Oaks Court.

"Our new care home is designed to provide a supportive and empowering environment for adults with complex care needs.

“With our state-of-the-art facilities, highly trained staff, and focus on promoting independence and choice, Shire Oaks Court will set a new standard for excellence in the care for adults, whilst bringing much needed additional specialist care capacity to the local area.”
