Pupils pick care home name.

School pupils have been chosen to pick the name of a new care home which will open later this year in the Black Country.

Students from the E-Act Academy, Willenhall, have named the home in Stroud Avenue as Willow Rose Care Home.

The care home is being run by Macc Care Group.

Navjot Hanspal, a spokesman on behalf of the new care home, said: "We were very heartened by the interest shown by the teachers and pupils from the academy and their enthusiasm to get involved in the local project.

"The academy is excited and looking forward to being involved in the new care home."

The care home will have 73 beds and look after people with dementia. It will create around 80 jobs. It is set to open to the public later this year.

It has been built on the site of a former care home called the Meadow House in Short Heath, which lay derelict for a number of years before it was demolished.

Macc Care currently has six homes based in and around Birmingham and Wolverhampton including Priestley Rose, Church Rose, Meadow Rose, Abbey Rose, Wulfrun Rose and Austin Rose.

All Macc Care homes are recognised by the CQC, and are providers of nursing under the NHS continuing healthcare framework.
