This area is renowned for its natural beauty.

Types of Care

Nursing care is offered to residents who need 24-hour around the clock care. This will be set out in a residents’ individual care plan and includes the monitoring and assessment of potential clinical problems such as: pressure area management; nutritional balance; fluid balance; administration and management of drugs and pain management.

Residential care is long-term care provided to adults who are staying in a residential setting rather than in their own home. Our homes provide accommodation, meals, daily activities and personal care such as washing and eating. Each of our residential care homes is unique, designed to make the most of the home environment and its surroundings and with a focus on making sure that residents lead a happy, fulfilling and healthy life whilst in our care, in a home they feel safe and secure in. We want our homes to be their homes.

Palliative care is provided predominantly in our nursing homes and is focused on managing pain and making your loved one as comfortable as possible, ensuring they receive the care they want, where and how they want it, in their final moments.

Our caring and empathetic teams provide highly sensitive and compassionate end-of-life care within our nursing homes, working with your loved one and their family, as well as their GP and other health professionals, to plan their care.

We Care Group provides dementia care in both a residential and nursing setting. Each of our homes that support people living with dementia is uniquely designed to make residents feel comfortable in their homes. Corridors are filled with photos and murals to evoke fond memories from the past as well as memorabilia to encourage stimulation. Colours are used throughout the home to create positive associations and trigger the right response to a situation and the food and menus are designed to cater specifically for residents with dementia. Several of our homes even have a dementia garden creating a sensory experience in a beautiful setting.
Specialist teams are on hand day and night to provide emotional and practical support to our residents, making sure they feel completely at home in their environment. Each resident’s personalised care plan is designed to support them in living with dementia in a positive way and in addition to any medical requirements, covers everything from mealtimes, hobbies and habits to activities that will stimulate their senses and engage them in a way that is fulfilling whilst at all times respecting a resident’s privacy and independence.

Bariatric care is provided in both a residential and nursing setting depending on a resident’s needs. Our teams are trained to support bariatric residents with their mobility, provide the right type of care to meet individual needs (including for example, keeping wounds clean), as well as supporting bariatric residents with their daily tasks. Our chef teams make sure dietary requirements and plans are followed whilst also being considerate to any preferences our bariatric residents may have.

Beechcroft is an elegant and spacious red brick house, set amidst landscaped gardens in Oxton, an attractive and established residential suburb of Birkenhead on the Wirral Peninsula, an area renowned for its interest and natural beauty.

As Beechcroft is dual registered, we can offer both long and short term, nursing and residential care under one roof.

Beechcroft is close to a range of local amenities and facilities including shopping parades and benefits from public transport to and from Birkenhead town centre, which is approximately two miles south.

At Beechcroft, we are able to accommodate older people requiring nursing care, personal care, and end of life care.

There are 40 bedrooms at Beechcroft, 32 of these are en-suite, and a hand wash basin is provided in all other rooms.  Many of our bedrooms are larger than the required standard,  for either single or double occupancy.

All of our bedrooms are bright and airy, and residents are encouraged to personalise their bedroom as much as possible so that it feels like ‘home from home’.

We provide a nurse call bell and TV point in all bedrooms.  Residents can also purchase individual telephone services/Sky TV packages for their bedrooms if they wish to do so.

The home is accessible for wheelchair users and handrails are available in all communal areas.

We have a range of specialist equipment to meet the needs of our residents including specialist mattresses and beds, full-body hoisting equipment, standing hoist equipment and a “Sam Hall” turner to help residents when transferring.  We have a range of adapted bathing and shower facilities.

Our chef teams use great ingredients to provide freshly prepared, nutritionally balanced meals based on regularly changing, seasonal menus. We make mealtimes an occasion for our residents, enabling them to enjoy their food in welcoming surroundings and catered for by our care teams. Residents always have multiple options to choose from at all meal times and can opt for something different if they change their minds when the food arrives.

We make sure our residents start the day right with a filling breakfast including cereals, fruit, toast and porridge, plus a daily changing choice of hot options. Our Residents are welcome to have breakfast any time they desire, and we are happy to accommodate their morning schedule. Between Breakfast and Lunch, we offer mid-morning cake and coffee.

Here lunch is the main meal of the day – enabling residents to dine together in a restaurant-style environment and providing a choice of hot meals and the option of soup or a sandwich for those that don’t want something quite as filling. Lunch is finished with delicious desserts, all prepared on-site by our chef teams.

And then, between lunch and supper, it’s mid-afternoon tea time with mouth-watering freshly baked cakes that our residents and team members enjoy together, making afternoon tea an activity in itself. After supper, during the night, lighter meal options are provided in the evening, and fresh fruit and snacks are available throughout the day to keep resident’s nourished, energised and satisfied.

Support Team

The Admin and Head Office team are responsible for dealing with fees and clients personal allowance, suppliers’ invoices and payroll.

Domestic and Maintenance staff ensure the home is a safe and clean environment at all times, following the regulations set by COSHHHSE and IPC.

Our cooks work on preparing and providing meals to our residents 3 times a day to meet each individual’s dietary need.

Beechcroft invests in a wide range of training for all our staff members, not only do we complete the mandatory training, but we also complete additional training courses such as Catheter Care, Challenging Behaviour, Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool, Dysphasia, Common Health Problems, End of Life Care and much more. All our staff re-train every year in dementia to keep our knowledge up to date to ensure we provide the best care.

Therapeutic activities are available for all our residents including those living with dementia; these include normal recreational events. Activities are planned and actioned through our Activities Co-ordinator; a 4 weekly plan is available.

Here at Beechcroft, we have a dedicated activities coordinator responsible for creating a monthly activities calendar. We Care Group provides the activities coordinators with all the tools necessary to enhance the well-being of our Residents. Each Home is a NAPA (National Activities Provider Association) member, which means each month, we receive a variety of activities and ideas; our activities coordinators can also get trained and develop their skills as well-being coordinators.

As we have residents with dementia, it is crucial to have daily activities that help keep their minds sharp. We focus on the sensory stimulation for our residents, which means we have activities that stimulate their senses (taste, smell, vision, hearing and touch)

Besides the wide range of sensory stimulation and activities, each Home has a 40 inches interactive table. In the past year, WCG invested in getting a Sharp Interactive table to each Home to aid the activities coordinators to provide a more person-centred and one-on-one session to low mobility Residents or Residents who prefer not to socialise. 

In Beechcroft, we believe in helping enrich the lives of people with dementia to ensure they are happy and fulfilled. 

What are the interactive tables?

We Care Group believe in the importance of technology for the betterment of life, and that is why we invested in the Interactive Tables in the past year. The interactive table is a 40 inches, scratch resistance, durable pad with an integrated Android operating system. It has up to 10 touchpoints, which means two residents and one carer simultaneously can use it.

Research on the neuropathology of dementia and the science of play establishes that people in the later stages of dementia can still experience three primary outcomes of the game:

  • Sensation
  • Relaxation
  • Reminiscence

All three outcomes can be achieved through residents interaction with the table and the carer guidance.

As the interactive digital tables have an android operating system, our activities coordinators and home managers can download multiple applications. From brain training, memory to puzzle apps.

The table can be utilised in several different ways as follows:

  • Dementia and Brain training apps and games
  • Collaborative games (multi-user)
  • Listening to music
  • Keep fit lessons, sing along & quizzes
  • Watching films and documentaries
  • Viewing the internet
  • Skype calling
  • Staff training
  • Memory learning
  • Cognitive improvement
  • Aid sensory impairment
  • Working as a group
  • Encourage general rehabilitation
  • Adding a video camera to talk remotely to residents family and friends

This technology adds to our well-being, and the activities mix helps us keep our Residents sharp, happy and entertained
