Consultants enjoy “Resident Experience”
At Compass Associates, we actively encourage our consultants to become experts in their field. We support them with learning about their sector; promote regular meetings with their clients and candidates and visiting services to gain a valuable insight into the health and social care industry.
Gareth Guyll, Managing Consultant and Matt Sheppard, Senior Consultant from our Care Home division took this one step further when they were invited by Oakland Care to a “Resident Experience” at their brand new care home, Beechwood Grove, in Eastbourne. Beechwood Grove has 60 private en-suite rooms and the home itself features state of the art facilities, whilst also creating a homely environment for their residents. This opportunity gave both Gareth and Matt a fantastic insight into what it would be like to be a resident at Beechwood Grove.
Matt Sheppard comments:
“The Resident experience at Beechwood Grove was amazing and gave us a greater understanding as to what life would be like in a luxury nursing home. It’s situated in a lovely part of Eastbourne; my first impressions of the home were that it’s architecturally beautiful and fits in very well into the Eastbourne community.
Inside, it had the homely feel; everything is laid out perfectly and everything has a purpose. We were shown several of the rooms and each either had a great view of the gardens or the town.
We had a lovely evening at Beechwood Grove, enjoyed an evening meal and breakfast the next morning. The food was absolutely incredible and exceeded even restaurant standards.
Overall the experience was fantastic and very enjoyable.
I wish Jeff Levine (General Manager) and the team the very best of luck for the future.”
