Welcome to Maypole Grove
At Maypole Grove, we build our care and activity plans around individuals, supporting, nurturing and encouraging them to live happy, fulfilled lives. Making every day better is about achieving the best possible outcomes for those we care for, so we identify goals and outcomes together with individuals, families and professionals.
Maypole Grove is a purpose built home for up to 30 service users, arranged over three units; Bearwood, Hollywood and Ladywood.
Each unit has a choice of lounges and a spacious dining room. Two specialist bariatric rooms are available with ground floor garden access and there are four larger bedroom suites available across the upper two floors.
At Maypole Grove, we understand the importance of good, nutritious food and encourage service users to work with us to create varied menus, which suit individual dietary and lifestyle requirements.
Patrick began to experience mental health problems during his teenage years. His mental ill-health became so bad that he was hospitalised for periods of times and given medication to control his hallucinations. Patrick was able to hold down a number of different jobs and complete a computer programming course however he found life disturbing and became easily agitated causing distress to himself and those around him. As his hallucinations worsened he was hospitalised again and spent some time in a care home.
He was then referred to Exemplar and came to live at Maypole Grove where he was able to benefit from a person-centred approach to his care. Patrick was encouraged to establish a daily routine, which has allowed him to grow in confidence and continue doing the things he loves. With patient intervention and therapy and the support of the Maypole Grove team, Patrick is now able to enjoy accompanied shopping trips, listening to music, cooking and painting and has benefited from animal therapy sessions.
One of Patrick’s goals to greater independence was to be able to carry out a role within the home. With the full support of the team he has been able to take on the position of postman and complete with uniform, delivers he post on a daily basis to everyone at Maypole Grove.

Maypole Grove also features an additional community space for activities and entertaining, separate to the main home. The Hub, a multipurpose room complete with a built-in kitchen, hosts specialist clinics and events with the many organisations and charities Maypole Grove works closely with and provides an ideal setting for service users, relatives and family for socialising, parties and activities.
The Hub is open to healthcare professionals and community groups as a free meeting space for monthly or annual meetings, fundraising events, coffee mornings, clinic support groups and training. Individuals can also attend with their friends, family and support workers for a change of environment, the chance to socialise with others and to form new friendships.
