About us

The Gables Rest Home is a family run residential home located in the largest town in the Wyre Forest District, just 17 miles south west of Birmingham, Kidderminster; through which flows the River Stour and the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal, has plenty on offer for residents and their families.

Home to the unique Museum of Carpet and a starting (and finishing point) for the world famous Severn Valley Heritage Railway, wonderful memories are made in this beautiful part of Worcestershire.

The Gables Rest Home is registered by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), to provide individual residential accommodation for 24 older people and accepts residents who are either self-funding or funded either in part, or wholly by the local authority.

During our most recent unannounced inspections in February 2019 the home was again rated as “Good” by the Care Quality Commission.

Our Vision

At The Gables we want to create an environment where all residents will be encouraged and empowered to develop to their full potential

We want to provide Person Centred care and accommodation service conforming to the highest standards of Professional Practice and to strive towards an outstanding quality service.

Taking care of the Elderly

It is of vital importance to us that we give extra special care to all people who stay with us. We have a range of care services including dementia care, residential care for the elderly, disabled care and convalescent care to make sure that all our residents receive the highest level of care that they deserve.

We do however understand that choosing these services for yourself or a loved one is a difficult and stressful decision. At The Gables we go to great lengths to assist in this process.

From the opportunity to visit our care homes, pre-assessments, orientation stays and a finite assessment of a resident’s needs and suitability, we aim to take the pressure and worry out of the selection process.

This site should help you make the first steps toward choosing a care solution however, we can only tell you a very small part of our story here.

You really need to visit us to be able to feel the ambiance and complete the story of life at The Gables
