Further to my recent communication, I would like to provide you with an update on the current status of our home operations. Firstly, I would like to report that, in the main, it is ‘business as usual’ at Signature despite the unprecedented challenges we all face in these times of lockdown. Whilst staffing levels continue to be impacted by isolation protocols, we are maintaining sufficient cover across all departments and ensuring that our residents receive the best possible care and attention.
I would like to thank all residents and family members for respecting our current no visitor protocol. I totally appreciate how difficult this must be however rest assured that we remain fully focused on the wellbeing and safety of our residents. In order to promote regular contact with family and friends we have introduced heightened technology initiatives at each home which will allow our residents to stay in virtual contact as and when required.
I’m delighted to report that across all our homes we have been inundated with messages of goodwill and support from local community groups. This is testament to the enduring relationships we have built with our wider communities and validates the spirit of human kindness which resonates with us all at times like these.
We will continue to keep you informed as the situation evolves and circumstances within our home operations change. Your support is incredibly important to us and we thank you sincerely for your understanding.

The Beeches Care Home in Brentwood, Essex
Signature’s award-winning care home in Brentwood is situated in a quiet area close to Brentwood high street and all its transport links. Beautifully decorated and themed throughout, The Beeches offers luxury residential nursing care with a huge range of social and lifestyle facilities.
With studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments, we can accommodate individuals or couples. Many of our apartments offer patio or garden access with most also offering a fully featured kitchenette. Our apartments are generously proportioned, light and airy with large windows.
Our staff at The Beeches are always smiling and will always go the extra mile to help. Residents are all treated as individuals and our staff love to support their particular hobbies and interests
“All the staff and nurses are professional, caring, show great kindness with dignity given to us. Very high standards and lovely food. A relaxing, safe and reassuring place for our loved one. We’re glad to have found you” (Son of a resident, comments from carehome.co.uk)
Award-Winning Nursing Care with Luxury Facilities
The facilities at our nursing home in Brentwood are second to none. Residents can choose from two restaurants, one for fine dining and one for a more relaxed, bistro-style experience. Our Redwood Café also offers snacks and refreshments at any time.
Throughout our home, there are a variety of lounge areas for socialising or privacy depending on the resident’s needs. With a grand piano, computer and internet access, library and hair salon, there is plenty for residents to do even when they are not taking part in our extensive events and entertainments programme. Events are arranged in collaboration with residents and our events team manages daily and weekly outings and activities.
Our garden is spacious and landscaped, with raised flowerbeds and planting and potting areas for our residents with green fingers.
“First class experience from the first day when we visited the facility to check suitability for our father. The most impressive part is the staff at all levels of the organisation and the way they work as a team.
The result has been that our father has been very happy to be here despite all the reservations he had about entering a care home before he came here.” (Son of a resident, comments from carehome.co.uk)
Specialist Dementia Care in Brentwood
For residents living with dementia, we have a specialist dementia area built and designed around the Gold Standards Framework, working alongside Stirling University for the most up to date designs. Our sensory garden features water fountains, herbs, spices and colours, and is very popular with our residents. With specialist dementia care staff, purpose-built accommodation and award-winning facilities, The Beeches are ideally equipped to help your loved one live positively with memory loss.
“All of the staff at The Beeches have cared for and supported my parents with great understanding and humanity since they moved in 9 months ago, helping my father in the early stages of dementia understand what is happening to his wife in the advanced stages, and enabling them to spend as much time together as possible” (Son of resident, comments from carehome.co.uk)
But don’t take our word for it. We would love to show you how Signature at The Beeches is unique. Book a visit now for a personal tour and to ask any questions of our staff.
