Beech House was built in 1890 as a private residence. The current proprietors bought the home in 2008 and since then it has undergone major refurbishments and extensions.
We are registered for 31 people aged 65 or over, and specialise in dementia care.
Although the home and all rooms are fully furnished, we encourage residents to bring in small items of furniture and personal items to create a familiar and homely environment in their own room.
We offer a full range of facilities and services with 24 hour care provided by our well trained staff.
Most of the staff have National Vocational Qualifications and all undertake training and career development to comply with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and to enable them to understand and assist the people who live here.
All food is cooked in the home and we are able to cater for special diets and often provide pureed food for people who have difficulty managing normally prepared food.
Breakfast is taken to the resident’s room at a time preferred by them and consists of cereals, toast, boiled eggs. Lunch is at 12 noon, afternoon tea at 2:30pm, supper is at 5pm and hot drinks and biscuits at 7pm.
We are always happy to provide hot drinks throughout the day and there is a small kitchen for residents and relatives to use to make their own.
Supporting the Manager to run the home is a Deputy Manager, an Administrator, an Activities Co-Ordinator, Senior Carers and Care Assistants. The kitchen is run by a Chef Manager who is supported by two part-time cooks.
We also have a housekeeper, a cleaner and laundry personnel. Our maintenance person deals with day to day repairs. All have a depth of experience and their roles receive regular support from their Directors.
Beech House is part of Haven Care Home Management who have invested heavily to improve the look and size of the property, furnishing and facilities.
Top quality care is our goal, and we engage the services of an ex CQC advisor on a regular basis throughout our homes, to ensure that we stay on target and our high expectations are maintained.
Throughout our 5 care homes we provide top quality dementia care within comfortable surroundings and great value for money.
