Richmond Bede Village has a modern 47 en-suite bedroom care home providing 24 hour nursing care. The care home is monitored and registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). CQC is the independent body that regularly inspects all care homes in England.

Bede Village is well known in the area for providing the very best care in lovely surroundings, a reputation that we are very proud of and one we work hard to retain. On-going staff training, an on-going refurbishment programme and a friendly and helpful attitude with lots going on ensures this is a care home like no other in the area.

See our Care Home page to find out what makes a Richmond Village care home different to a normal care home.

Respite care

Respite stays are always short-term. Having said that, the relationships they build between the village and resident give great reassurance to all concerned, especially if a longer stay ever becomes necessary. Respite care is also ideal for those who are well enough to leave hospital but not yet well enough to return home. We offer respite care within our Village Suites or within our Care Home if you require nursing care.

What does it cost?

As no two people are the same, our Village Adviser can advise you of the cost once the level of care and the length of stay you require has been established. In all circumstances, the fee will include any care provision, a comprehensive social activities programme, all meals and hotel and laundry services.

Review of Richmond Bede
Submitted by V M on Wednesday 11 January 2017.

For approximately 3 months, my husband was a resident at Richmond Bede Nursing Home. The care he received was wonderful. All the staff treated him with kindness, compassion and respect. The staff also made sure I was being looked after and became an extended family to me. The home was spotlessly clean, bright and a pleasant place to be. Everyone there - the cleaners, kitchen staff, carers and nurses were first class. The managers were always approachable and made time to talk if I needed reassurance. Thank you to one and all.

Excellent facilities, care staff are very motivated and caring, the overall appearance of Bede is clean, tidy and welcoming. The meals provided are of an outstanding quality with a varied menu catering for all individuals. The management is approachable and offers support to all.

My close friend was resident in Richmond Bede Village for the last six months of her life. She went there from hospital having been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. As you can imagine never to go home again was a shock because her illness was totally unexpected. In her first few weeks there she was not helpful but the staff at Bede were patience itself. They just made her feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for any of them. As time progressed she settled in and her every need was catered for even down to her favourite food which was always available. The carers without exception are round pegs in round holes and seem to love what they do. Any dealings that I (as power of attorney) had with the management was on the whole dealt with quickly and efficiently. As my friend's illness progressed and she became less able to communicate the staff took the time to be sure as to what she wanted and that was not easy. In my friend's last few days her care was second to none. A friend who was with her said that she had not seen care like that before. Not only was she cared for but her friend as well. When my friend passed away it was with dignity, love and care. At all times when I was there over those last six months never once did I see her room needing cleaning, her washing not done, or anything that was asked for not given to her. This was also the experience of all of her visitors of whom there were many. The public areas are lovely and the fact that you can get a cup of very good coffee and freshly made cakes from their own kitchen is a bonus. In my view, this is one of the best nursing homes around and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

As an entertainer working for Richmond Bede Village, I not only find it 100% satisfying and welcoming, the hospitality shown to us is second to none. I have been in many five star hotels during my career and there are not many that have the same standard of cleanliness, food hygiene and staff hospitality. Care is always paramount to their residents with a smile on their faces, staff clearly dedicated to their individual roles but working closely as a team to ensure the clockwork running of this establishment 24 hours a day. We will continue to return to entertain the residents and staff as required and recommend it highly to other entertainers in the industry.

My friends uncle was residing at Bede Village. He had an excellent experience and when he passed away, his wishes were to hold his wake at the village. He also requested for any donations to go to Bede.
