Life at Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home
International Day of Sign Language
We had a lovely morning learning about Sign Language with our activities coordinator Carole. We learnt the alphabet, how to sign our names and greetings too. Residents and staff really enjoyed this activity and we are so lucky to have Carole here to keep us practicing.
In Honour of Her Majesty the Queen
In honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we took the time to commemorate her and pay our tributes to the Royal Family.
In loving memory of the Queen, we worked hard to create our own Memorial Area with soft lighting and photos of the Queen, which staff, residents, families and friends can visit anytime; we created a book of condolence and a memory tree with photos of the Queen. We have also spent time together remembering the Queen over the years.
For many of our residents, the Queen represented comfort, hope and peace over the past seven decades of her sovereignty, and she will be sorely missed.

Fun filled afternoon at Stamford Bridge Beaumont
Here at Stamford Bridge Beaumont our life enrichment programme includes a variety of different activities, with live music performances being one of the most popular.
Residents and staff enjoyed an afternoon of singing and dancing with our monthly visit from Dark Moon.
The lounge area became a dancefloor as staff and residents sang and danced along to some wonderful songs. Music is a huge part of life here at Stamford Bridge Beaumont. The power of music is used daily in the home to promote physical, psychological, social, and spiritual wellbeing.
A fantastic afternoon, and we can't wait for our next visit already!
Music Through The Ages Tour with Sarah Deters
We had a brilliant time with curator Sarah Deters as she took us on a virtual ‘Music Through the Ages’ tour of St Cecilia’s Hall: Concert Room and Music Museum.
Our residents were thrilled to discover weird and wonderful musical instruments, hear their unusual sounds, and find out how instruments have changed over the last 500 years.
The virtual live event explored the world-renown collection of musical instruments on display at St Cecilia’s Hall, Scotland’s oldest concert hall.
A lovely time was had by all.
Flower Arranging at Stamford Bridge
Our residents adore seeing flowers in the lounges, on the dining tables and especially in their rooms.
We've had a lovely afternoon cutting and arranging the flowers, engaging joints and preserving motor function. Being around flowers helps boost mood and lower levels of anxiety.
The ladies were very particular about the height they wanted them and how they looked in the vases.
Join us for a fun-filled month ahead with plenty of activities to keep our residents engaged and fulfilled.
Coffee Mornings at Stamford Bridge Beaumont
Join us on the second Wednesday of each month for our Coffee Mornings.
Come along for some delicious homemade treats, tea and coffee and a natter.
