Life at Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home

Welcoming Our New Arrivals

Staff, residents and their guests at Barchester’s Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home, in Stamford Bridge, York were celebrating the birth of baby chicks this week at the home.

There was a lot of egg-citement at the home as eight chicks hatched throughout the week. Residents were able to pet and feed the chicks as they found their footing in their new home. The new additions will also be visited by the children from the local Muddy Boots Nursery from the local primary school who stopped in to meet the new arrivals.

Coffee with a Coppa

We warmly welcomed the local Police service into our home this morning for our “Coffee with a coppa” event to give our residents  a chance to show their gratitude and appreciation for their hard work, and for them to enjoy a warm drink with the company of our residents.

Our visiting police officers spoke to the audience about their time on the force, the challenges they face and the rewards from helping the local community, before taking questions from the residents, relatives and guests.this certainly set everyone off to a great start to their day!


Easter Art Competition

Residents at the Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home at Stamford Bridge in York were delighted to receive a bumper collection of Easter art from the children at ‘The Muddy Boots Nursery’

The children took part in an Easter art competition and they delivered with an array of multi coloured Easter Bunnies and eggs.

Of course everyone was a winner and the home was privileged to deliver Easter treats as prizes for the children.

Grape Expectations - Wine Tasting

Staff and residents at the Stamford Bridge Care Home, in Stamford Bridge, York have invited members of the local community to join them for a wine tasting event hosted by the homes activities team.

The home came up with the idea to invite members of the local community to come and enjoy our beautiful café area and taste some delicious wines. 

The afternoon was a big success with members of the local community stopping by for a glass or three.

Inside the Factory

We had a brilliant time across our services with Harrogate Skills 4 Living as they took us on a wonderful virtual visit to their Harrogate Chocolate Factory.

Residents were thrilled to discover details about the chocolate-making process and the fascinating journey from bean to bar, all while enjoying some delicious sweet treats.

The Factory aims to employ people with learning disabilities and autism, involving them in all parts of the process, from sorting and roasting the beans to packaging and sales. The experience was truly enjoyed by all who joined this event.

Beat the Clock

We continue to celebrate a varied life enrichment programme and across our services we linked up with other Barchester care homes and hospitals up and down the country for some interactive Beat the Clock games.  

Our residents truly enjoyed solving word puzzles, conundrums and mathematical problems as part of Barchester’s very own game show series.

Everyone who joined had a fantastic time and enjoyed some friendly competition.
