Reach is proud to be one of the most established providers of Chinese services for older people in the UK. We recognise that some Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) people have needs that are very specific and we have retained the uniqueness of these services.
Connaught Gardens, Victoria House and Cherish House are our specialist BME services for the Chinese community. As well as accommodation services, we provide floating support to people living in the community.
Cherish House, in Birmingham, provides safe affordable accommodation to Chinese older people within a culturally sensitive environment.
The service has recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. Some customers have lived there since it opened.
It offers exercise classes, arts and crafts classes and day trips as well as a range of services to meet additional care and support needs, such as daily Chinese meals – with menus drawn up in consultation with customers.
From Cherish House we also operate our Chinese Domiciliary Care Service which helps people in their homes.
