We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, who devoted her remarkable life to public service.

Reigning over the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth for 70 years, she remained strong and dignified in her leadership as the world changed beyond recognition over the decades.

Our thoughts are with her family and King Charles III as he takes on his new responsibility as monarch and King.

Over the past few weeks, Claire and Amy from the Care Home Wellbeing Service have been coming to work in partnership with Beddell House Care Home.
This is an NHS Funded scheme with the aim of improving the wellbeing of both care home residents and staff. The service provides wellbeing resources, confidential 1 to 1 support for staff (in person or by telephone), whole home support (wellbeing visits) and running wellbeing projects for both staff and residents.
Over the past few weeks residents have taken part in creating ‘The Tree of Life’ in the style of a mosaic using tile pieces, working outside and making the most of the beautiful weather. This required skill and concentration from our residents and the feedback has been very positive on this project  I am sure you will agree they have done a fantastic job! This will be displayed at Beddell House Care Home for everyone to enjoy.
On Tuesday 26th July, Beddell House welcomed Claire and Amy back as they offered our residents the opportunity to ride on a rickshaw around the grounds!
Residents, the visiting family members and staff were all in awe of seeing this fantastic service delivered on site in partnership with Hand in Hand Activities.

After weeks of planning, preparation and mounting excitement, the residents of Beddell House celebrated the Queens Platinum Jubilee over the weekend.

First event to mark the celebrations was to ‘Plant a tree for the Jubilee’.

Plant a tree for the Jubilee’ is a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.
The Himalayan Birch tree was specifically chosen to blend in with the stunning surroundings and planted on the lawn, central to all accommodation on site for everyone to enjoy. Residents from around the site came together to share this moment and was involved in the planting.

Afterwards, some residents of Beddell House sat in the sunshine and Mr & Mrs Thomson, spoke about meeting the Queen when she honoured their son Andrew with an OBE at Windsor Castle. Another resident, Mrs Chiverton was also in the company of the Queen at the garden party in Buckingham Palace grounds. Their thoughts on planting the tree were, ‘it was the least we could all do to celebrate her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee as she had devoted her life to the people of the commonwealth and the whole of the United Kingdom.’

Tanya Porthouse, Registered Manager of Beddell House Care Home said, ‘It was a lovely occasion to see the residents of Beddell House honouring the Queen on her Platinum Jubilee.’

From October, we can upload a picture of our tree to the Queen’s Green Canopy map which will show all of the trees planted in honour of the Queen to mark the occasion. We will also be ordering an official plaque when they become available in September.

The second event was held on Thursday 2nd June. Singer Sharon Cardno came to entertain our residents singing a number of popular songs our residents could dance and sing along to, finishing with the National Anthem. Both residents and staff spoke abut what a brilliant day it was!

On Friday 3rd June, a ‘street party‘ was held in the conservatory. All residents were welcomed with flags, red and blue mocktails and 50s music. Traditional Fish and Chips were served ‘in the paper’ and residents reminisced about the Queen’s time on the throne.

We would like to thank the staff team for all their hard work and the residents for making it a weekend to remember!
