Welcome to Bridgewood Mews
At Bridgewood Mews, we build our care and activity plans around an individual, supporting and encouraging them to be happy, cared for and fulfilled.
Service users at Bridgewood Mews live in two 10-bedded units, Telford and Brindley. Each unit has a dining room and lounge, with an activity room on Telford and a quiet room on Brindley.
At Bridgewood Mews, we understand the importance of good, nutritious food. Our restaurant style dining menu is developed with service users to ensure a varied and interesting menu is available to everyone, taking into account personal preferences, condition-specific and religious dietary requirements.

The OneCare service at Bridgewood Mews is a semi-detached house around the corner from the main home. It has two ensuite bedrooms with a stair lift for those with accessibility requirements.
Shared living spaces include a large kitchen, dining room and lounge, enabling service users to interact with one another and welcome guests in a spacious, home from home environment.
Moving from Bridgewood Mews into the OneCare house gives people the opportunity to develop and maintain their life skills and independence away from the wraparound care of the main home.
Supported by families, professionals and the specialist staff at Bridgewood Mews, service users can transition into the OneCare service as they reach the personal rehabilitation goals outlined in their care plans. The OneCare service can be adapted to suit the individual needs of service users, based on personal tastes, condition, functionality and medication regime.
Tim, in his early fifties, came to Bridgewood Mews following a stroke, which lead to severe difficulties in walking and swallowing.
On arrival, Tim suffered frequent falls and required an enteral feeding regime. After 18 months of rehabilitation and specialist nursing care, Tim has regained significant functionality and is now able to walk unassisted.
He has also begun sampling food again as he continues to recover.
As he progresses further and develops more of the skills of everyday living, Tim is looking forward to moving into the OneCare service, where he will be able to live independently in his own home, whilst also receiving the specialist nursing care he requires.
