Excellently situated, Begbrook House Care Home is set in Frenchay village, on the outskirts of Bristol. It is located near to Begbrook Green Park and Frenchay Hospital, and not far from all the amenities of Fishponds. We offer high quality nursing care and respite support for those who require shorter stays.
We have 32 bedrooms offering nursing care, all on ground floor level. The rooms are set across three wings, each with it’s own lounge room, and there are two dining spaces for residents to enjoy their meals in comfort. All furnishings and decor throughout the home are of an exceptionally high standard. All rooms have doors that open on to our splendid garden and paved walkways, meaning they can enjoy the grounds at their leisure.

Each day our chef prepares restaurant-style meals combining variety with a balanced diet and an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. And we can cater to any dietary or health requirements, however complex.

As well as our team of carers and nurses, we have regular visits from GPs, physiotherapists, podiatrist, opticians and other professionals who provide services to residents at the home. We also have a hairdresser who visits every Monday to pamper residents. And everyone gets stuck in together – whether to serve breakfast or help out with an activity.

Activities vary each week: from bingo and knitting club to sing-alongs and special events. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best
of the day. We’ve built excellent links to the community, allowing residents to continue their lives outside the home with ease. We’ll often take residents to the park and local pubs and restaurants. Some residents have arrangements with relatives to go out on a regular basis, and we assist with that wherever possible.

    Begbrook, once ran by brighterkind, was an exceptional care home with a very supportive management team. All carers worked together to provide the best care possible. Now, begbrook is ran by barchester healthcare. The management team offer no support to head of departments/team members. Staff are frightened to voice their opinions as you are sacked straight off. It’s definitely not the same care home I walked into at first. Procedures are definitely not followed with this new management team in place.

    Wouldn't even give it one star. Its very badly led care home, with no manager present most of the time. Staff don't have access to important documentation and there is not enough staff to care for residents properly.

    Please I know first hand it's so under staffed and management are not doing anything to help with the great care clients need. They just don't care. I even had had to beg to be able to give appropriate mouth care for passing residents. Please these are such loving residents don't let ur family member be another one that goes into this poorly treated but also well hidden place.

    Very lovely home, likely the final resting place for my Mum unfortunately, we moved from Avon Lodge in Kingswood, which was also very good, however Begbrook is very peaceful, lots of birds singing, squirrels that come up to her window, its very close to Oldbury Court which is fantastic, woodland walkways and forest, the carers are great and very helpful, full-time nurses onsite 24 hours, highly recommended!
