Beech House Residential Home
Beech House residential home has 49 rooms and supports residents to live in a home like atmosphere. We also specialise in dementia care, with all staff trained in a person centred care approach. As a team we are proud of how we are able to meet our residents choices in a holistic way.
Beech house was purpose built in 1968 and is within 5 minutes walking distance of local facilities in the small market town of Halesworth. Situated in rural Suffolk midway between Ipswich and Norwich and close to the East Suffolk coastal towns of Southwold and Lowestoft. Halesworth is a historic town offering a pedestrianised shopping centre, a train station and good public and community bus links to all the major towns.
Our light and spacious home is safe and secure, all external doors and gates have key coded locks, enabling our residents to walk freely around the home and large gardens. We maximise opportunities to go out into the local community alongside supporting visits and trips with families.
We pride ourselves on getting to know our families and residents so that we can deliver individual support, gaining insight in to the person and what their views, feelings and wishes are.
