Welcome to Copper Beeches Care Home

You'll find Copper Beeches Care Home in Borstal, a suburb of Rochester, Kent. Here we provide care in a supportive and comfortable environment, 24 hours a day.

People living with us have varying needs, from specialist nursing support, to general assistance with everyday living. We also provide care for those living with dementia.

Ours is a purpose-built care home with a lovely large lawn and patio. Inside, residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or reading.

All these areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.

All our private bedrooms are decorated to a high standard, and many have en-suites.

Life at Copper Beeches Care Home

A carer and a resident

The staff are lovely they look after my wife and care deeply about making her happy and content which makes me feel less upset at placing her in a home. I have been to other care homes and felt a great family atmosphere. The staff ensure all help needed is given quickly.

Ronald Needs, Husband of Resident/Service User at Copper Beeches Care Home

Not only is it a care home for the residents but it is also very welcoming for the visitors. The carers are the best in my eyes, anything you want to know or want advice for, the management are there to help you.

Joan Lusted, Wife of Resident/Service User at Copper Beeches Care Home

The staff are all very good, hard working and helpful.

Robert McNalty, Son of Resident/Service User at Copper Beeches Care Home

I recommend this home because it is a friendly "home from home" type of place. The staff are kind and caring to both my husband and myself. Every thing is done with a smile.

intermediate care HSJ guides

24 Apr 2017

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.

The knitting club at Copper Beeches Care Home in Rochester have put down their knitting needles for the first time in long time after completing a yearlong project.

Gabriele Jerome, Home Manager, said: “The residents have been working hard to complete their patch work quilt complete with pom poms for everyone to enjoy. Everyone had lots of fun choosing what colour wool to use, knitting and sewing all of the squares together. It really is a lovely blanket.”

care home awards

30 Nov 2016

Copper Beeches Care Home in Rochester is celebrating the success of two of its Care Assistants after they successfully graduated from the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) programme.

Gabriele Jerome, Care Home Manager said: “Everyone here congratulates Cheryl and Yvonne on their success. We’ve all supported them every step of the way and it’s great to see their hard work pay off. They are a great asset to the care home, and provide fantastic support to the residents here. They’re a great part of the team. Well done again! I can’t wait to see you putting your new skills to use.”

The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nurse duties, such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Jo Vasey, Four Seasons Health Care Managing Director for the South East of England, said: “We’re all really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentors them through the programme. Here at Four Seasons we’re committed to developing our staff and this is one way we can do that. Well done again! All of your hard work and dedication has paid off.”
