Beaumont Park is a beautiful Victorian double-fronted house, which has retained many interesting architectural details, yet has been modernised to provide a high quality nursing and residential care environment. Beaumont Park exudes a warm, homely atmosphere where many people tell us they instantly feel at ease. The rooms are elegant, bright and charming; and in warmer weather residents and their visitors can enjoy the large conservatory and terrace. The home can accommodate up to 37 nursing and residential residents. Bedrooms are particularly spacious and fully furnished but we encourage residents to bring their own items of furniture and personal possessions so that their room becomes an individual retreat.
Set in the town of Biggleswade, Beaumont Park is located in an idyllic position with extensive landscaped gardens; a feature that distinguishes it from other care homes in Bedfordshire. A large ornamental pond, stocked with Koi Carp, provides an attractive focal point and the diversity of colourful shrubs and plants give year round colour. Dappled shade is provided by many mature trees of varying species. Almost every room at Beaumont Park enjoys a view of these lovely grounds, ensuring peace and quiet for residents and visitors alike.

Year Started working at Healthcare homes
Why did you start working at healthcare Homes
Beaumont Park is a beautiful home which is part of the Biggleswade community. It has been a home for many years and still retains many dedicated and loyal staff
What role did you carry out before
I was a Home Manager of a slightly smaller home for a couple of years.
What do you think a person needs to do to be good in your role.
I feel it is important that you really enjoy working with people, whether that is residents, relatives or staff and can build strong, trusting and honest relationships.
What is your favourite part of your working day
I don’t really have a favourite, I enjoy seeing staff develop and build strong teams, it is especially rewarding when residents speak positively about staff or relatives thank us for the care we have provided. It is always amazing to talk to residents and hear about their lives and some of the amazing things they have done from a Bletchley Park code breaker during the war to running a dress shop in Biggleswade.
What qualities do you think makes a good home manager
I prefer a measured approach to working, to consider all possibilities and remain calm and patient. You must be a good listener and communicator and be approachable and well organised. I also think it is important at times to maintain a sense of humour.
What are your interests outside of work
I love my garden and pottering in my greenhouse is a great way for me to unwind.
What do you enjoy/are looking forward to the most about working at this care home.
To continue to support and develop the staff so that they can confidently provide the best care and support for our residents.
