Home of the Year – Winner – Beechcroft Manor Nursing Home
Hampshire Hero – Winner – Helen Doherty (Activities Co-Ordinator)
Beechcroft Manor was originally built as a very large and grand house around the early 1900’s, and has been totally renovated and refurbished in recent years to accommodate 18 residents requiring nursing and/or dementia care.
The 18 single bedrooms, some of which have en-suite facilities, are equipped and decorated to a high standard. We encourage our residents to bring in personal items such as ornaments and photographs to enable them to feel completely at home. Families can install personal televisions and telephones as they wish.
Two lounge/dining rooms are the places for our residents and their families to meet and relax in. Both rooms have a television, a radio, a DVD and video player for residents to enjoy. We have a large selection of books with both small and large print.
Our garden is attractive, being well-established with a summerhouse and a gazebo for our residents, their families and their friends to enjoy during the fine weather. We often have afternoon tea in the garden.
There is ample room for car parking at the front.
The Matron, Lorna Liney, has the day to day responsibility for the running of the home. Lorna is a Registered General Nurse and is in the process of registering with the Care Quality Commission as the Manager of Beechcroft Manor.
Lorna is supported by a team of skilled nurses and care staff who have an on-going programme of training and development which enables them to plan and deliver the appropriate care required to meet the individual needs of our residents.
The home has excellent cleaning, laundry, maintenance and gardening ancillary staff who ensure the home is always well presented and provides a safe and comfortable environment.
Our chefs know that good food makes happy people. So we ensure that each resident’s dietary preferences and specific nutritional needs are catered for, and a selection of delicious home-prepared and home-cooked meals are served to the highest standard throughout the day.
You are very welcome to come and view Beechcroft Manor at any time or why not call and book an appointment to meet Lorna and her team for a guided tour of this beautiful home.
