37 residents in the residential care category

Location 

Nestled in the quiet and affluent village of Rowlands Castle, Beechwood House lies in an ideal setting for a care facility.  The home is located just a couple miles away from junction 2 of A3(M) and lies a few hundred yards away from Rowlands Castle mainline rail station.  The home is within an easy commute of Portsmouth, Havant, Waterloovile, Petersfield and Chichester.  The home also benefits from all the amenities of the main village square which is within walking distance of the home. 

Specialist Care Provided 

The staff at Beechwood House are well trained to care for residents with dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, and some mental illnesses.  The residents at the home vary in care needs.  Some are very independent whilst others require more intensive care.

Facilities at the Home

Beechwood House has recently undergone a full transformation and most areas of the home are now completely refurbished.  The vast majority of the bedrooms have en-suite facilities and are in excess of national minimum standards for bedroom sizes.  The home boasts two large communal lounges as well as three more quite, private congregational rooms with an impressive, warm dining room. Beechwood House prides itself on offerering highly professional care for all the residents, families and outside agencies that we work with.

Distinguishing Characteristics of the Home 

Beechwood House is a building with a very unique character.  Many of the rooms boast very high ceilings and large windows ensure that all the bedrooms feel very warm and airy. Visitors often comment that one of the most unique characteristics of Beechwood House is its stunning gardens.  The garden includes space for residents to enjoy a quiet walk and shaded areas to relax during the day. We have raised beds within the garden and activelyencourage the residents to potterabout as they would have done in their own gardens.

Beechwood House has a very comprehensive activities program consisting of musical entertainment, exercises, reminiscence sessions, bingo, and arts and crafts.

Beechwood House has a very close working relationship with the local General Practioner’s and the GP’s visit regularly as it is only a short walk from the village. Other Healthcare professional’s visit regularly and we work together in partnership maintaining the ethos of a resident centred focus.

Recommendation

A wonderful home from home.
A relative for whom I hold a power of attorney has been happily resident at Beechwood for the past 2 years. My wife and I visit at least twice per week. The home is spotlessly clean, is well maintained and well equipped. The standard of care is exceptional and all members of staff have a loving caring attitude to residents and visitors at all times. Any concerns we may have are listened to and acted upon with the minimum of fuss. In 2 years of visiting my wife and I have had no grounds to be concerned about the care provided. The quality and selection of food and drinks provided is truly exceptional, and staff monitor the fluid intake of residents and encourage them to drink as and when necessary. Our relative is very happy to reside there. I would recommend Beechwood to anyone. Thanks to all member of staff.
