A home in the community for men with acquired brain injury or dementia presenting with neuropsychiatric symptoms.
The Beeches, part of Croham Place, is a care home with nursing located in South Croydon, which is specifically designed to care for up to eight men suffering from acquired brain injury, dementia or other conditions affecting their memory and other mental
Our home caters for those whose neuropsychiatric symptoms put them and others at risk. Our services are delivered in partnership with local and health authorities, families and individuals.
The men in our care may suffer from Traumatic Brain Injury, Acquired Brain Injury, Stroke, Alzheimer’s Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia, Vascular Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease Dementia, Dementia with Lewy Bodies, Alcohol-Related Dementia, Korsakoff’s Syndrome, Huntington’s Disease, HIV-related dementia and other neuropsychiatric disorders.
Our service focuses on maximising community access and meaningful activity. Our staff focus on providing non-pharmacological interventions designed to reduce agitation and aggression.
We are designing a healing environment tailored specifically to the needs of our residents. We follow the King’s Fund Enhancing the Healing Environment (EHE) supportive design guidelines. Familiarity is enabled throughout the service with photographs and
memory boxes, traditional objects and recognisable sanitary ware.
Music therapy: We engage with a local service who support our staff to deliver structured music therapy sessions. This intervention has proven to be effective in up to moderate agitation.
We have an accessible garden which is safe for our residents.
All our nursing and support staff are trained in the management of neuropsychiatric symptoms through interventions that do not rely on the use of medication.
At the Beeches our residents benefit from access to specialist clinicians on an internal referral basis. This is included as part of the service.
We accept referrals from clinicians and commissioners throughout the UK. Our assessment is free. We aim to accept all men with a primary diagnosis of a neurocognitive disorder—such as acquired brain injury, Korsakoff’s syndrome or dementia—provided they are in stable physical health.
