Alphonsus House is situated in the heart of the beautiful town of Oldbury and is close to local amenities, yet in easy reach to major bus routes and motorways, making it accessible to larger towns and cities.
Set over four separate properties, each room has been designed with the resident in mind, for example, the kitchen in the bungalow has been adapted for wheelchair users.
We also provide opportunities for residents to participate in a wide variety of community based activities including college courses, employment and social interests.

- Cinema trips
- Dance and drama classes
- Playing football
- Playing golf
- Independence skills
- Using the gym
