The Beeches was built in 2004 and acquired by MHA in May 2011. The home provides residential and dementia care for 44 older people.
The Beeches is situated within its own grounds in the small town of Wath-upon-Dearne just outside Rotherham. The town dates back to Norman times, having an entry in the Domesday Book and was described as “the Queen of villages” by poet James Montgomery in the 19th century. The location ensures both quiet surroundings and a relaxed pace of life. There are community amenities close by including shops, a library and a Post Office.
The home is built over two floors and designed to accommodate small group living, each area with its own lounge and dining room. All rooms come complete with high quality furnishings with modern en suite facilities, TV and telephone points. Residents enjoy a small, enclosed garden with a patio area.
Above all, MHA has developed a strong “person-centred” approach which focuses on the person. The activities programme at The Beeches is tailored specifically to each individual. Members of staff develop a programme of activities and care that takes account of each resident&s personality, abilities, interests and preferences. It helps people to feel valued for who they are now as well as for who they were in the past.
