I was recently taken to lunch at a rather nice restaurant in Brentwood. The company was excellent, the food, and if wanted wine, looked delicious but the venue was quite a surprise because I had been taken to The Beeches care home.
I must say, I did rather feel that when the time comes, this is the home where I would like to live. Sommer Turner, the client liaison manager, showed me around. The foyer would not have been out of place in a Five Star hotel. There were restaurants and cafes and I even came across a cinema in the facilities. There were a variety of rooms and at least six activities per day to keep residents stimulated and interested. Activities range from Scrabble and quizzes to dancing, gardening and Saturday Night at the Movies. Art groups were available as well as regular staff and resident socials. There were also opportunities to go into Brentwood on weekly organised trips.
As a minister, I am asked if I could recommend any care homes and from this introduction I received, I would certainly suggest considering The Beeches. It is a Signature Home and the website is www.signature-care-homes.co.uk. It is in Herbert Road off London Road in Brentwood, Essex CM14 4NA
