Beech Haven Care Home is part of a family run business specialising in high quality nursing homes.
It focuses on delivering high quality care in a safe, welcoming environment.
Beech Haven Care Home consists of 29 single rooms, 16 of which have en-suite bathrooms. Each room is individually decorated and residents are able to furnish their room with their own furniture if they wish to do so. Each room contains a wash hand basin as well as its own phone point and television point. Our accommodation is suitable for day care and respite care as well as more long term arrangements. Residents are permitted to bring pets with them subject to prior arrangements being put in place
Residents have access to two lounge areas in which they can engage in individual or group activities. In addition, there is a large conservatory which overlooks the beautiful gardens in which our residents enjoy sitting. At meal times residents can either opt to eat in their own rooms or in the communal dining room which is a friendly, homely environment for them to socialise in whilst eating.
Activities and Events
We employ a Leisure and Wellbeing Coordinator who creates a bespoke programme of activities for each resident taking into consideration their individual likes and interests. Residents can engage in either individual or group activities such as exercise classes, quizzes, yoga, memory box, live entertainments and reminisces groups. We also promote monthly religious services and local outings. Residents are also encouraged and supported to attend events and activities in the community. In addition, the local GP visits the home regularly as does a hairdresser and a chiropodist.
OverallRead overall summary
We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008 and to look at the overall quality of the service.
This inspection took place on 28 February 2017 and was unannounced. The inspection team consisted of two inspectors, a nurse Specialist Advisor and an Expert by Experience. An Expert by Experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service.
Before the inspection we reviewed the information we held about the service. We asked the provider to complete a Provider Information Return (PIR) and this was returned. A PIR is a form that asks the provider some key information about the service, what the service does well and any improvements they plan to make. We also reviewed the notifications we had received from the provider. Notifications are changes, events or incidents the provider is legally required to tell us about. We also contacted the local authority commissioners of the service to obtain their views.
During our inspection we spent time observing how care was delivered. We spoke to five people and three relatives. We also spoke with the registered manager, two registered nurses and three members of care staff.
We looked at records, which included six peopleâs care records and a sample of the medication administration records. We checked recruitment files and staff training information for four staff members. We also looked at a range of records about how the service was managed. Following our inspection we contacted a number of external professionals who had been involved in providing the care to the people living at the service to obtain their views.
