Digby Manor Residential Care Home offers a personalised solution that meets the needs of every resident and provides them with more than just a roof over their head. Life at Digby Manor is not just about receiving great care, but about enjoying the things in life that one always enjoyed doing.
They boast an authentic ‘home from home’ experience to help residents settle quickly. By putting quality at the forefront of everything they do for our residents, relatives, advocates, and everyone with an interest in Digby Manor, they aspire to be one of the most respected and successful care providers operating within the independent sector. Their focus is very much on people’s needs, and it is our aim to ensure that each service user benefits from absolute respect and an enhanced and meaningful lifestyle.
Funding from Unity Trust Bank has offered the platform to transform a residential care home in the suburbs of Birmingham. Digby Manor is now one of the best rated in the country. Through hard work from all staff and a clear improvement programme, Digby Manor is being restored to former glories.
Future planning is in place to extend Digby Manor in size to meet ongoing demand. However, ensuring the family feel is retained is vital. This ethos is the cornerstone to its’ success and its new reputation in the local community.
The team have plans to create a dementia friendly outdoor area as well as a Dementia Lounge with reminiscent furnishings for residents to discuss. By expanding the care home and with the residents at the forefront of planning, they hope to take Digby Manor to the next stage of its development.
The funding from Unity enabled the residential care home to set firm foundations upon. The family has historically run care homes across the country, but Unity’s investment shows that they are supportive of new ventures. It will allow the care home team to expand and spread excellent practice.
“Unity have given us the platform to express ourselves fully. We have an excellent rapport with our Relationship Manager who is very approachable and willing to listen to our new initiatives. We would have no hesitation in recommending Unity to any potential business opportunity as they embrace vision for future initiatives. Thank you, Unity, for allowing us to start to flourish in our vision for the future.”
