My dad is a resident in the Myreton and has for the last 5 years. We find the staff are friendly and helpful. His care is good and is quite happy. He used to enjoy music and singing entertainment, but there doesn't seem to be much of that now.

Having been involved in visiting care homes over the years. I cannot speak highly enough of all aspects of caring and compassion I have witnessed since my sister became a resident at Beech Park, in January. It is spacious and bright, all staff I have encountered are friendly & helpful. My excellent "ratings" speak for themselves!

When looking for a home for my friend Margaret we went to more than one, as soon as we came into Beechwood Park we knew it was the right place for her. We did not make an appointment we just turned up, they made us feel welcome and very informative. Margaret has been in Beechwood since beginning of February 2015 and I can honestly say this has been the right move for Margaret. Always plenty of activities and staff are excellent at all times.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the nursing team, especially Karen, Louise and Rose, for all the care and attention given to my mother through out her three year stay with you. Sadly my mother slipped away peacefully in November 2013. It was of great comfort to all my family to see the excellent end of life care given to my mother. This helped to make a difficult situation more tolerable.
