Waterside House is a safe and caring home for people living with dementia. It was opened to residents in 2005 as a partnership between MHA, the local Primary Care Trust and Wolverhampton social services, and supported by a generous donation from the John Ward Trust. Situated at the end of a quiet road within a mile of the Wednesfield shopping centre, Waterside House is part of an integrated care community that also includes MHA's Bridge Court, a complex of modern retirement living apartments.
Waterside is made up of four wings, each with en-suite bedrooms, a choice of lounges, a dining area and kitchenette. Residents also have access to a large enclosed garden area to the rear of the home.
