Where you’ll work


One of the main focal points at Beechwood is our extensive garden, which stretches the entire length of the care home.

Our residents love to sit outside and listen to the birds.

Volunteers at Sanctuary Care have transformed a separate central garden nestled in the middle of the home.

With sensory planting, this area is beautiful and will continue to develop with a pergola on its way.

The heated conservatory, with tables and comfortable chairs, looks out onto the gardens and there is also a summer house for activities.

Our day room offers a range of activities and is always an exciting aspect of daily life here at Beechwood.

We hold weekly lunch clubs which are open to people from the local community in and around Upton-upon-Severn.

Every Wednesday, our residents and their loved ones are invited to enjoy a traditional roast dinner with all the trimmings and a glass of wine.

Our residents love to welcome local people into their home and the food is always delicious.
