I visited my husband twice during his stay and I found the staff pleasant and helpful. My daughter was phoned few times re falls my husband had. She has power of attorney, she was informed immediately and assured her father was OK. The room occupied by my husband was always clean and tidy and was a large airy room with excellent en suite facilities I was well satisfied with my husband's care.

From my first visit to view Beechwood. I have found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It is wonderful for me that my husband seems to be very content. The nurses are very good with what can be a difficult situation as he has no speech, so I tend to ask questions and I think we liaise well.

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.

Kellymarie Jack

Job Title: Home Manager

Joined: 2014

Description:

As Manager of Beechwood Park, Kellymarie leads her professional Care Team in delivering the highest level of care and support for residents and their relatives.

Having qualified as a Registered Mental Health Nurse in 2003, Kellymarie spent three years working for the NHS before joining Caring Homes. She previously served as Home Manager for our sister home in Auchtermuchty, Strathview, before taking over at Beechwood Park.

Her nursing experience has equipped Kellymarie well for Care Home Management; she always works hard to ensure that those in her care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive.

Kellymarie believes in maintaining strong relationships with residents and their relatives, understanding the important contribution that these relationships make to the successful running of a care home.

‘I love nothing more than finding out from our residents, relatives and colleagues, what I can do to make their time here better or more settled.’

Kellymarie notes her greatest professional achievement as enabling a range of adults with learning disabilities to take holidays across the UK and Europe.

Away from work, she likes to relax by spending time with her two children.
