Opened in November 2019 The Beeches is a new residential and nursing service for people with dementia. Using our considerable experience and guidance from the Dementia Design Centre at Stirling University we have designed the building to provide the highest quality environment to cater for the needs of people with dementia. Three households have been created which will care for up to 15 people in each one, creating a more homely atmosphere with access to the beautiful gardens and set in the parkland of Parkhaven Trust. Circadian lighting, acoustic monitoring and electronic care planning have been installed to ensure that people are supported and cared for using the latest technology and to support staff to spend more time with people.
Our menus are developed to meet the needs of people with dementia, offering nutritionally balanced meals and choice. Daily activities are provided to ensure that individual preferences are met and tailored to the resident’s interests and wishes.
Staff working at the Beeches undertake specialised training to care for people with dementia, ensuring their needs are met and that they have a stimulating, safe place to live.
