Here residents are considered part of the family.

Our home is set in the centre of Barton upon Humber, Humberside, close to shops and amenities. It's a mix of old and new buildings, with our two floors serviced by a passenger lift and stairs. All rooms have great safety systems and a TV point.
Life at Beech House Care Home

We also encourage visits from groups, such as local churches, who encourage residents to sing praise with them.
Catering is high quality, with menus offering nutritionally balanced and tasty choices to match what residents like to eat.
I never imagined that a time would come when I felt happy to leave my mum, not even in the care of others. Her safety is important to me, her happiness is important to me, as is her health. And then she went to Beech House.
Today, the staff at Beech House took residents (and myself) to their Hesslewood Home for a Fun Day. The weather may have been miserable but the staff and residents certainly were not. To all the staff who joined in, you have made the day so special and fun for us. And when we got back the other staff who had stayed behind were there, happy and smiling, supporting everyone.
Perhaps I ought to add that you have made EVERY day special for us since Mum went to to live with you at Beech House. Thank you for giving Mum and myself so much help and for making us feel we are part of your big family. And thank you for giving me the wind beneath my wings that is allowing me to gain my life back again.
Can I book my own room now?
Super place, super staff. Thank you for caring for my mum. She's starting to take part in activities again thank you. An amazing place.
I am always happy to visit my friend and she is always happy and well cared for.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.
