- about admission -

What are the qualifications for admission?

Most people come direct from their home environment. Some come from the Association’s three sheltered schemes: Cedarmore Court, Elenmore Court and Southmore Court. A waiting list is maintained.

Where people are likely to need financial support towards their fees, their admission should be sponsored by the Local Authority for the area in which they are living. Their residence at Beechmore Court will then be the subject of a contract between that Authority, the Association and the person.

At Beechmore Court the intention is to provide the kind of care and assistance which an older person would like to receive in his or her own home from a competent friend or relative under the guidance of a nurse or doctor. Most people need some assistance with bathing, dressing and some aspects of personal care. A General Practitioner and District Nursing Team support people when required. Residents may retain their own doctor if practicable. People who are ill or frail are cared for at Beechmore Court for as long as possible although under certain circumstances, and on the advice of the person's doctor, a transfer to a hospital or a home which provides nursing care may prove necessary.

Staff attend to all laundering of personal clothes and bed linen.


We are able to support people who are developing dementia in small, homely units.

We encourage people to participate in activities offered at Beechmore, as much as they are able to, and welcome visits from family and friends to provide on-going stimulation and connection.

Community Living

The intention is to create a caring, friendly and unobtrusive community with a Christian ethos in which people feel secure and at ease at all times.

Before admission, people are expected to sign an agreement covering the main terms and conditions of residence at Beechmore Court. Regrettably, it is not possible to allow people to bring their own pets. Beechmore Court has a no-smoking policy.


Beechmore Court is run on a not-for-profit basis. Fees are fixed at levels sufficient to cover all running costs and are reviewed annually or when a care needs changing significantly.

Where residents are part-funded by their Local Authority and the Local Authority does not meet the full charge, the Association looks to their relatives or friends to cover the shortfall.

An individual’s fees will be based on the level of their care needs, which are assessed prior to admission and reviewed periodically. Ensuite facilities carry a small premium. A deposit is payable on admission and will be refunded on termination of residence provided that all charges are up to date and the room has been cleared of all personal possessions and is available for letting.


Beechmore Court is not in a position to offer any financial advice to people. However, there are a number of organisations and companies that are very happy to offer such advice. You should confirm for yourself if there is a charge for advice if you contact any of them. Look for an independent financial adviser with the specialist CF8 qualification to advise on funding long-term care. They’ll be able to explain all the costs and risks, and can help with other things, like arranging a will or setting up a power of attorney. The ultimate aim is to maximise your income for meeting care costs whilst, as far as possible, preserving your original capital.
