Our home is designed to provide a safe, caring and welcoming environment for those living with dementia. All members of our Dementia Care Team have received extensive, specialised training in dealing with all types and levels of memory impairment. Our employees have gone through extensive training to ensure that each person is treated with the highest care and respect.
Our Activity Coordinators go above and beyond, working with dementia residents and their families to provide activities and therapies that are suited for their unique requirements and to help them thrive. Daily planned activities increase social and mental stimulation and interaction, as well as relieve dementia-related frustrations and stress.
What is Dementia Care?
Dementia is a mental illness that affects speech and memory. People with dementia can continue to live their lives to the fullest with the right care and support, while staff helps them keep their sense of self and independence for as long as possible. Beechgrove Care Home understands that no two people with dementia are the same, and that although some may only need minor assistance with daily activities, others may require much more. Our Dementia Care is tailored to each individual, and our home and staff create the ideal environment for people to live a happy and secure life.
Our Approach to Dementia Care
Our staff has had extensive dementia training, and we take pride in giving the best possible care and respect to each patient. We make every effort to provide care that allows each individual to reach their full potential and live a happy and comfortable life. Regularly scheduled activities increase social and mental stimulation and interaction, as well as alleviate any frustrations or tensions that come with dementia. Our home contains deliberately designed sections, as well as practical elements such as en-suite wet rooms, clear signage and contrasting colours.
When is Dementia Care Necessary?
On a daily basis, those who live with dementia, as well as those who care for them, face a number of obstacles. Dementia is a progressive syndrome, which means that as time passes, the individual with dementia will require more assistance and care. If a person’s Dementia has progressed to the point where they require more care and support than can be supplied at home, a care facility may be required. Beechgrove creates an accurate picture of a resident’s life with the help of family and loved ones, ensuring that both medical and wellness therapy is addressed and implemented.
Residents’ Safety Will Remain a Top Priority
COVID-19 preventative measures are achieved to the highest of standards by the staff at Beechgrove Care Home. We will continue to ensure that these preventative measures are in place and that they lead to minimal disruption in our residents’ daily life. We work hard to ensure our home meets the top levels of safety and hygiene, while also ensuring that the home remains a warm and inviting place. Our care team is dedicated to supporting both future residents and their loved ones, as well as those who are currently residing with us during these unknown times.
It is important that meaningful contact is supported and maintained for residents. There are no limits on how often residents can receive visitors but it must remain safe and manageable for the care home staff and residents themselves and we ask that these are pre-booked. Anyone who visits a care home should take a LFD test, you will be asked to show proof of the recent negative LFD test before visiting. This includes family, friends, children over the age of 12 and visiting professionals. You may take the test at home before you visit or the home can help you to carry out the test when you arrive.
A Fluid Resistant Surgical Mask (FRSM) must be worn wherever possible, and Infection Prevention and Control measures should be followed as instructed by care home staff. Residents, family, and friends are able to plan outings or activities from the care home and are able to do by working together with the care home to arrange.
For prospective residents, to have a tour of the home, it is necessary for this to be pre-booked and for evidence of a negative LFT test to be presented prior to entering the home. This applies to all guests within your party. At any time, the COVID-19 regulations and guidance from the Government, National and Local Healthcare Agencies may change.

Healthcare Services at Beechgrove:
We provide a rewarding lifestyle by combining person-centred care with all-inclusive facilities. Medical services required from an external source are also available, which includes the following:
If residents have any health concerns, they are entitled to schedule regular appointments with a local doctor’s surgery. They can choose to be accompanied by a staff member or attend alone.
If any of our residents have any eye-related concerns and need to be seen by an optician, they will be able to attend a routine appointment. Any treatment carried out may come at an additional cost, so we advise checking with the team at Beechgrove before going ahead.
Oral care is extremely important, especially as we grow older. Those who would like regular check-ups or residents who may be experiencing oral pain can visit a dentist during their stay.
If physiotherapy is medically prescribed, your primary nurse can arrange this service for you, or if a resident would like a private arrangement, this can also be provided.
For residents experiencing foot pain or who have a foot injury, we have a private chiropodist who can attend to your chiropody needs at least once every eight weeks and more regularly as necessary. Please check any fees before booking an appointment.
