"The care team here are caring and wants to do their very best for Mum, positively reacting to changing care needs and making sure Mum is comfortable. Always friendly and accommodating to our family. The challenge can be staffing and the number of carers available to help - they are sometimes short-staffed, particularly on the evening shifts. Always do their best."

"First-class for respite, mind, body, soul and medical needs all first class. My treatment of choice - have pre-booked for the year so I can do my job. Thank you. psychology"

"My dad has been at Beaumont for a few weeks after moving him from a previous care home. He has advanced dementia but is physically reasonably able so we wanted somewhere that he would be occupied as well as being well looked after. I have to say I am so pleased with how well my dad has settled here. He says that he is very happy and would like to stay forever. He is always very happy when we visit him and seems to be really enjoying his meals! Everyone we have met at Beaumont has been unfailingly helpful and pleasant and we are very happy that we have chosen Beaumont for his care"

"Since my husband was admitted to the nursing home we have all been treated with respect and kindness ( with the exception of one male member of nursing staff). I was very unhappy to have my husband taken out of my personal care but have been more than content with the care he is receiving in this home. I could not carry on caring for him at home. I'm glad we found this nursing home."

"My aunty was a resident for the last 18 months. It was a decision not taken lightly by the family, however, this was the best decision. From the moment she went in she was happy. She does have quite a lot of family both in Yorkshire and down south, frequent visits from us down south were not possible (covid etc) however, I must say this did not deter the home from keeping everyone informed of how she was settling in and how she was doing. She deteriorated towards the end of last year and the home ensured the family were kept up to date with all relevant information. Unfortunately, she passed away late on 7/1/22. The home ensured we were kept up to date, we tried to make it but didn’t. We continued so we could see her in her own bed, the home was more than amenable and when we arrived at 0200, she had been laid out beautifully. Nothing was too much trouble and small requests we made regarding jewellery etc were upheld immediately. This is a perfect home for both the resident and family."

"My close friend went to the Beaumont for a four/six weeks respite stay. The Beaumont offered her an en-suite room but this was not to be her room, only had a toilet and small washbasin portioned off in the corner of her small bedroom. No shower or bath. She asked for a move but they could not offer any other room. After six weeks she asked to leave to go to another residential home where she was offered an en-suite and much larger room with a lovely garden view. The Beaumont made various excuses why she could not leave. I had to ask the social worker for help and in their opinion, there was absolutely no reason why she could not straight away this took fourteen weeks to achieve. The Beaumont kept her there against her wishes for financial gain at £1090 per week. She also did not need nursing care. She requested a discount for the en-suite room she did not get but they refused. Her showering arrangements meant being escorted to a shared shower on the floor above. Do not go."

"My husband stayed for three weeks of respite care. He was so well looked after by the staff and settled quickly. He enjoyed having people around him and became more sociable with more interaction. He thoroughly enjoyed the food and even put some weight on. His room was well appointed and everywhere was clean and well kept. But the staff were the real stars. They put him at ease and ensured he was as contented as possible. I am booking him in for another stay in the spring."

"Every single member of staff in the residential care unit has been so kind, patient, helpful and supportive to my husband and family members who visit him. My husband is treated with respect and dignity as are all the residents and all staff go over and above just doing a 'job'. There is not much difference between the words care and caring. Good care is essential but when good care is given by caring people then you have the perfect combination."

"My sister-in-law has been in the Beaumont now for 18 months. She has had wonderful care. I have observed many homes over the years and the Beaumont is one of only two I would recommend to anyone in the area. The staff are welcoming and friendly trying their best to make residents feel at home. There are lots of trips, musical entertainments and visits from animals too. The food is amazing and in the lounge there are facilities for drinks and snacks. My sister-in-law has dietary needs and now she is adhering to a proper diet which has improved her health. All residents are different, some are shy and retiring but whatever their demeanour they are treated well and encouraged to interact should they feel they want to. The staff and management are always there to answer any questions I might have, I am happy to leave my sister-in-law in their capable hands."

"After an easing of lockdown, I was able to visit my sister-in-law inside the Beaumont. The rules for the safety of residents, staff and visitors were in place and effective. I have been visiting Beaumont regularly for a number of years, I find the management staff and residents friendly and happy. After lockdown, I found the residents were outgoing and happy there are always activities on the go, birthday parties, celebrations and trips out. The menus are displayed in the entrance and the food always looks and tastes appetising. The whole building is clean tidy and beautifully decorated, the dining room looks like a hotel. The staff are caring and go out of their way to make residents and visitors feel welcome and most importantly ‘wanted’. Nothing is too much trouble."

"My father seems happy in the care of this home. Like everything, some days are excellent, and some days are lacking. I think this is down to the number of staff rather than the quality of care the staff want to provide. They are doing their best. Activities seem to favour certain people and we always see one lady all over the Facebook feed time and time again."

"My dad lives at the care home and is extremely settled there. The staff who care for him go out of their way to make sure his needs are met. At times they go above and beyond their job roles to make sure dad is cared for in the same way we would if we were able to do so. There have been times when dad has struggled to maintain his ability to understand what is being asked of him. The staff are patient and understanding and give him the time he needs. The unit he resides on is well led and if I have a concern I feel I can approach the unit manager and the problem will be addressed and dealt with as soon as possible."

"Staff are kind and respectful very caring. The home is very clean and homely. Choice of food is good (they make sure they know what the person likes and dislikes). They are very welcoming."

"I would like to say that the care I am receiving is very good. I have been happy here, the staff are very efficient and I regard them as my extended family. We have craft lessons for which I enjoy for which I do knitting so I am grateful that I can. I have improved and I am very happy here. It is a lovely care home and very good meals indeed. Top marks for all the staff at Barchester Stamford Bridge."

"Since my wife was diagnosed with dementia and had to go into full-time care she has become very contented with life. The staff in the home are all extremely qualified and treat my wife more as a friend than a resident."

"I cannot praise the staff highly enough at Stamford Bridge Beaumont. They showed kindness, compassion, and understanding towards Mum, treating her with dignity and respect. They were particularly understanding during her last days, in the difficult situation of lockdown. I have no hesitation in recommending this care home. Thank you, everyone."

"Mum has lived at the home for 8 years and as I live nearby I visit most days. However, during the last 3 months, the home has been in lockdown. It has been extremely difficult for all the family as mum is 98, with very limited mobility and health issues, and skype and other communication provided is not for her. However, today I am on my 3rd weekly visit today to see her. I have to arrange the meeting in advance with the staff as they have to take place outside, in line with government guidance. But oh how wonderful to see and chat to her again. Whilst it is not the same as normal visiting, for everyone involved in making this possible it is much appreciated. The staff are on hand, chairs etc are sanitised after each visit and it's wonderful to see she looks extremely well. I don't think she has missed me too much either, so well done to all the staff at the home for taking good care of her and keeping me up to date whilst they have been through an extremely difficult time themselves."

"Since the lockdown due to Covid19 we have not been able to visit, however, we have been able to telephone and speak to mum, also the staff has kept us informed of any necessary information regarding mum's wellbeing. As soon as visiting was allowed we were able to make an appointment through an email and this was answered and facilitated in a timely manner. Throughout the months of lockdown the staff have remained, helpful, friendly and professional."

"Went to visit my mother last week after the easing of lock-down and they were very well organised in arranging visits to the garden area. Very supportive staff and very keen to enable residents to start having family visiting again."

"I am grateful to the staff for the care and compassion I believe they give to my mum. It is extremely sad for us as a family that we have been unable to visit our mum during the covid outbreak. We are reassured she is being cared for well and are in regular contact with staff. I would recommend The Beaumont to other families, the staff are always very supportive."

"I haven’t been able to visit Mum, who has dementia, through lockdown understandably. I have spoken daily with the staff, who were always very kind and reassuring. Mum was ill during this time, she has recovered, I can’t thank the staff enough for the care Mum received during a very difficult time for all. The staff have sent me photos of Mum, which was a comfort to us all. I have recently been able to visit mum, outdoors, following covid restrictions, the visits are very well organised."

"My mother had to go into respite care for one week and having visited a few care homes in the area, we chose Barchester Stamford Bridge. This is our first experience of care homes and I can't imagine there is a more welcoming, caring one anywhere! The staff are wonderful. The care workers, the dining room staff, all of them. We are so lucky to have found it."

"What a wonderful, caring home for people like my mum who had Alzheimer's. I cannot begin to praise and thank all the staff and management enough, not only for mum's care and the love she received but for how the family were treated when she was dying in the Residential unit. It meant the world to us. I am so glad her end of life was here. Thank you for your love and compassion. The staff really cared about my mum and we wept together when she passed away. The staff could not have done any more."

"My mum was with you in Memory Lane form July-December 2019. I transferred her form another home and I noticed that within a week she was less anxious. I think it was because the care was calmer and quieter. The manager of the unit, nursing staff and carers were all very kind. My mum was always clean and in her own clothes (dignity). Cleaners, caterers and laundry and admin all first class."

Deborah G

"The staff were very supportive, kind, friendly and efficient. They were very helpful and caring. Everywhere was clean with no 'institutional smells'. I cannot speak highly enough of your organisation. Thank you for all the care."

carehome.co.uk rating: 5 out of 5

"Very unwelcoming. I never saw the manager smile once, communication poor. Time-specific medication not always given on time, probably due to poor communication between staff and no-one taking responsibility. Food looked disgusting and was often presented cold. Room often left without towels and a glass to drink from. Bathroom floor so sticky that my shoes stuck to it. The place was dirty and shabby and smelly. Thank goodness I got him out of there."

"This is a very special place. The Stamford Bridge Beaumont is not just a beautiful environment, but a community and family of incredibly dedicated and loving staff. From kitchen staff, carers, nurses to managers, everyone makes time to invest in residents and really get to know them. In the past two months, my Grandma has deteriorated rapidly with breast cancer. Throughout this time, she has expressed feeling safe and loved in the home from home that is the Beaumont. As a family, there's a tough time ahead, but we feel confident that we chose the perfect place for our beautiful Grandma to really live her final days in dignity and love."

"I spent three weeks in respite care at Stamford Bridge Beaumont. I found this extremely efficient, friendly and able to make one feel at home. I would be most agreeable if I needed further care there."

carehome.co.uk rating: 4.45 out of 5

"This is the best care home by far that my mother has been in in the past 3 years. The staff are wonderful and loving, treating the residents as individuals rather than just numbers. The staff go out of their way to understand each resident on their unit and know how to respond in the best way to suit the person. I'm not sure my mother would be alive and well today had she not moved to Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home. She suffers from advanced Alzheimer's but has come alive again with the loving care and all the activities the staff organise each week. I cannot say thank you enough or praise the staff and management enough."

"My mother spent the last three months of her life at the home. She was incredibly happy and content and thought the world of the carers. The outstanding level of care, support and love shown to my mum by ALL the staff was such a comfort as it is never easy to put a loved one into care. We couldn't have picked a better home for her. Our heartfelt thanks to everyone at the home for looking after Mum so well, we will never forget you."

"Very happy with the loving care my Dad has received since going into care in January. Both he and the family have had fantastic support from the staff after the death of his wife. Their genuine concern and care have been appreciated by all of us. The standard of cleanliness and the quality of meals are second to none and the homemade cakes very welcome when I visit after work and have had no tea! A big thank you to every single member of staff for making him welcome and the decision to leave him there somewhat easier."

Brilliant, professional, caring, approachable, patient - plus a sense of humour. Food - excellent. Always access to hot/cold drinks and homemade cakes/biscuits. Activities/outings well run and approachable."

"Since my husband arrived at The Beaumont in December 2018 for end of life palliative care, with only a short prognosis, he has amazed myself and his family as well as the care staff looking after him. I have to say that it is totally down to the excellent care he receives from all the staff and the good food they provide for him. They are all very attentive, caring and considerate towards him and nothing is ever too much trouble. Myself and his family are very pleased how comfortable he is and how well looked after he is. It is thanks to them all, that he is still with us, for extra time."

"The care my mum received over the past year at Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care Home was excellent, however the end of life care she received in early February 2019 was outstanding. Myself and several members of family were with Mum for over 40 hours during which time all members of staff showed us the utmost care and respect, making a very difficult time a little bit easier."

"My husband suffers with dementia. After several months of home care, and with the help of carers morning and night, we managed. Unfortunately, over the summer months his mobility deteriorated until, in September, he became unable to walk unaided. He was admitted to hospital for 7 weeks until, with good fortune, the manager assessed him and agreed to admit him to Beaumont. He settled in well and with the help of the wonderful care staff he settled and immediately gained weight! Thanks to everyone at Beaumont from all the family."

"I visited my Grandfather today and I wanted to tell you what a pleasure my visit was. I do not get up as much as I would want to be I left feeling he is in very good hands. It felt more like his home than a care home and he really enjoys his days. The staff were fantastic and I was greeted by the new manager as I left and she spoke very positively about my Grandfather which was a lovely touch. You really given me great peace of mind Thank you to all the team!"

"Our mother was in the Stamford Bridge Beaumont Care home for one month's respite care. The staff, without exception, were genuinely caring and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble.

"This nursing home provided my uncle with outstanding care in his final week of his life. He was treated with love, dignity and fun. The care the staff showed towards his relatives was fantastic and we cannot thank them enough. A special mention to two carers who were particularly kind to our uncle. Thank you."

"The nurse looking after my father went above and beyond expectations in providing care for my father. She was instrumental in making him comfortable and finding ways to help him cope with the effects of a stroke. She took the time to support Dad (and our family) and found a room with a more suitable view from Dad's bed - he is not mobile. Overall the care Dad is given was exceptional. A big thank you to all concerned."

"My step dad left hospice to come into Beaumont Care Home. We also had past experience with Beaumont Care Home as my mum had a 2-week stay in 2015 and passed away there. My step-dad was end of life and when he came to stay there he said he loved it. The staff were great and very caring and attentive to my dad's needs. He obviously did have his favourite girls! But overall I'm so pleased I was visiting Beaumont Care Home again as I know my dad would be well looked after regarding his last weeks. Thank you!!"

"I was a visitor for 7 years for my mother in law, until April 2016. I always found the staff caring, efficient, helpful and kind. My mother in law was always clean and the food was fantastic, which is why when my partner finally had to go into care 4 weeks ago, I had no hesitation in letting him go into Beaumont. The standard is just as good as it was if not better. He has settled in ok and I see him almost every day and I cannot fault his care."

carehome.co.uk rating: 4.73 out of 5

"Mum has been at this care home for several years and is well cared for; she is always clean and comfortable whenever I drop in for a visit - several times a week. The care team clearly look after her well and have become good friends with her, spending time reading letters to her, washing her hair and doing her nails as she cannot manage any of the group activities anymore. They have got to know what she likes to watch on TV or listen to on the radio and set that up for her as she cannot do it herself. The staff always contact me straight away if there are any problems - usually having first called in the doctor. The nursing staff have an excellent working relationship with the local GP practice, which is also very responsive to resident's needs. I could not look after my Mum as her dementia advanced, so knowing how well she is loved and cared for by the staff at the Stamford Bridge Beaumont has given me quality time with her and reassurance she is safe and well looked after."

"What an amazing place this is. The staff are positively gifted in the quality of care they provide. Administration, care and nursing are all first class. My father stayed here for what was sadly end of life care. However, the staff went over and above our expectations on all levels. Dad's well-being, wishes, dignity and family members were always top priority. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this facility, whether for long term care or palliative care, nursing or dementia. They are fantastic."

"The care home is a large facility, which could be considered to be daunting to residents who are familiar only with living in their own home. Fortunately, the sensitivity introduced by most of the staff, carers and nurses, has helped to make the transition much easier and more enjoyable. There are inevitable issues, particularly related to personal expectations of food preparation/quality that have caused frustration. The home has made attempts to address these with partial success."

"My mum was only at Stamford bridge for a short time for hospice care, during the time mum was there the care she received from all members of staff was outstanding. Management were supportive and helped with a quick admission so mum could be discharged from hospital. We were allowed to take mums things in before admission and make it look homely for her, the maintenance team were fab in checking her electrical stuff even when we kept bringing in more. The kitchen team were great and provided a variety of foods and textures as mums needs changed. The housekeeping ladies were considerate, checking when it would be best to clean mums room and checking if she was awake/resting. The Care Assistants and Nurses were our lifesavers, the care and compassion shown our mum was simply brilliant. When we were not with mum we felt safe in the knowledge that mum was being well cared for. They quickly picked up on her sense of humour and would try to make her giggle. They would often pop in just to say 'hello'. We were given regular updates by staff and contacted quickly when needed. The staff also made us feel welcome, showing us where to access drinks for visitors. We are very thankful to ALL the staff for making a very difficult time a little easier."
