What do you think a person needs to be good in your role?

Listening and having a sound understanding of the job role and responsibilities. Able to support the people and their families who live in our home. Support colleagues to develop and reach their goals.  Address any issues that may occur in the home to create a homely culture that is positive for both residents and the staff team. A leader and manager who has knowledge of the care industry and someone who can speak to staff and listen to their points of view, but who is able to make decisions that will ensure the safety of all parties within the home.

Helen Finlay

Beaumont Park is a beautiful Victorian double-fronted house, which has retained many interesting architectural details, yet has been modernised to provide a high quality nursing and residential care environment. Beaumont Park exudes a warm, homely atmosphere where many people tell us they instantly feel at ease. The rooms are elegant, bright and charming; and in warmer weather residents and their visitors can enjoy the large conservatory and terrace. The home can accommodate up to 37 nursing and residential residents.  Bedrooms are particularly spacious and fully furnished but we encourage residents to bring their own items of furniture and personal possessions so that their room becomes an individual retreat.

Set in the town of Biggleswade, Beaumont Park is located in an idyllic position with extensive landscaped gardens; a feature that distinguishes it from other care homes in Bedfordshire. A large ornamental pond, stocked with Koi Carp, provides an attractive focal point and the diversity of colourful shrubs and plants give year round colour. Dappled shade is provided by many mature trees of varying species. Almost every room at Beaumont Park enjoys a view of these lovely grounds, ensuring peace and quiet for residents and visitors alike.

We recognise that every person is different, so we create tailored care plans for each and every resident.

We work closely to identify the best care to suit your needs and the most appropriate setting in which this should be delivered.

We involve families and friends in the creation of each plan using the ‘care passports’ and life history records, so that each person receives the most beneficial care and support, taking into account their health and wellbeing, aspirations, wants, likes and dislikes.

We believe that our dedication to delivering the most individualised, personal care to all our residents is what makes us stand out, and ensures our residents enjoy living their lives to their fullest potential.

The Importance Of Meal Times

Nutrition is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents; not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but ultimately we want residents to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.

Our chefs and nutritional leads fully assess all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and meal times. This is recorded and regularly monitored so the chefs are fully aware of everyone’s personal preferences.

All homes display a daily food menu, which includes breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mid-morning, afternoon and evening snacks and drinks are also served, however sandwiches, biscuits and other refreshments are available at any time of the day.

Our catering teams pride themselves on producing food of the highest quality, with many homes using local suppliers and all homes creating fresh, homemade dishes each and every day.
