Harvest View now open – helping people to live well and age well

Published 24th November 2022

Harvest View – Sandwell’s new flagship social care and health facility and the first of its kind in the West Midlands – is now open.

Harvest View in Rowley Regis offers specialist support from both social care and health staff all under one roof, with 80 en-suite rooms and friendly communal areas as well as lovely outdoor spaces.

The facility will help people get back home after a hospital visit and also those who need some structured support to avoid a hospital stay altogether.

Harvest View replicates the home environment, where residents can be encouraged back to their normal health in familiar surroundings. The focus is on maintaining and improving independent living rather than specifically treating the medical condition.

Councillor Suzanne Hartwell, Sandwell Council’s Cabinet Member for Adults, Social Care and Health, and Sarah Oley, Sandwell & West Birmingham NHS Trust Clinical Directorate Lead – iBeds, cut the ribbon to open the facility this week.

Councillor Hartwell said: “This is such an innovative and collaborative project. Harvest View is a magnificent building. For Sandwell residents who will be using this facility, for their families and for the staff who will be working there, this is an amazing person-centred place.

“Harvest View offers residents choice and control over their care and also promotes independence, helping us with our ambition for Sandwell people to live well and age well.”

Sarah Oley said: “This is a fantastic example of partnership working between us at the Trust and our partners at Sandwell Council and we look forward to caring for those people of Sandwell who need the reablement support offered here at Harvest View.”

People can take a quick video tour of the site and information events are being arranged for people to find out more.
