What our staff say

Lauren Wells - PA to the Head of Care and HR Administrator
When I saw the vacancy, I immediately knew it was my perfect job- and when I was offered an interview, I was so excited anyone would think I’d won the lottery! Imagine my reaction when I was offered the job.
It wasn’t just the role of course, but the fact I’d be working for Beaumond House, and until starting I never truly realised just how extensive the services were!
With any new job, there’s always first day nerves, however the moment I walked through that blue door on my first day I instantly felt at home. Everyone was so welcoming and supportive, a true ‘bubble of love’ that encompasses the whole house from staff, volunteer, patient, and families.
When I started however, I never expected that as a family we would require the services so soon for my lovely Nan. After having been in hospital for a few months, she finally required the calm of a hospice bed.
What an absolute privilege it was that week that we were able to spend some quality time with her in such calm surroundings, given such beautiful attentive care, allowing us to share some real tender moments that now provide some extra comfort since she passed so peacefully last year.
People commented on whether it was hard to step back into the house for work after she passed, but in fact I find it comforting. That is testament to the outstanding care she received and what my fellow colleagues provided not just to Nan, but to us as a family and continue to do so.
Maria Hewitt - Receptionist
My involvement with Beaumond House began in 2004 when I started volunteering in Day Therapy when my triplets started school. I still volunteer in Day Therapy every Wednesday, also now being a volunteer driver I transport patients from their home and back too.
I currently work part-time on Reception, having previously worked for over 2 years in the Fundraising Department. Apart from answering the phone and welcoming visitors, I really enjoy chatting to the patients and their families.
I have witnessed personally how BH can help in times of desperation. My lovely Mum benefitted from this fantastic place when she enjoyed attending BH as a day Therapy patient for over a year, giving my dad a much needed and really appreciated weekly break.
Also, a really close friend used the Hospice at Home service when she was poorly and spent her final hours in a place she felt safe.
In 2019 I took part in the Annapurna Sunrise Trek in Nepal raising funds for BH. I raised over £3000 and collectively we raised over £9000 between 5 of us.
I am immensely proud to tell people I work here and am always keen to spread the word about BH and the fantastic work it does for our local community.
Tracy Drakes, Health Care Assistant
I work at Beaumond House as a Health Care Assistant and I also work in the community for our Hospice at Home team.
I have been at BH for nearly a year now and I have my dream job! I love this place and am so proud to put on the uniform and come to work.
It’s a house full of love compassion, passion and laughter. I couldn’t think of anywhere else I’d rather be.
