Vaccinations & Infection Control

As B&M Care continues to navigate through the complexities laid out by the Covid-19 pandemic, the group would like to reassure you that the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and residents remains paramount.

Our Infection Control Assurance is a commitment to minimising the risk of Covid-19 to our existing residents and staff, whilst safely welcoming new admissions into our homes.

In addition to PPE, regular testing and safe admissions, B&M Care has now successfully completed the first phase of the group's vaccination rollout.

These procedures are in place to meet and exceed the requirements of those considering a B&M Care Home for a loved one.

Vaccinations & Infection Control

  • "I would like to say what a wonderful job Karen Langley [Home Manager] and her team are doing at Tara's Retreat. The pandemic has been a huge challenge; from the beginning of the first lockdown, the care and action taken [by the home] has been exemplary. Later, the provision for outdoor visits was dealt with in the best way possible. For this we are very grateful - and want to commend the home."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "I have just been listening to the Radio 4 programme 'You and Yours'. It has been about peoples' experiences around visiting their loved ones in care homes. Listening to this has spurred me on to send a big thank you to you, especially Alex [Engagement Lead]. I cannot express just how grateful we are to have Mum living at Tara's Retreat. Special thanks must go to Alex for all she is doing to keep the relatives going."

    Family of Resident

  • "I'm writing to say a huge thank you to all of you who have cared for Mum over the last six months. Your care and empathy have been amazing, especially in her last days. As a family, we are hugely grateful for the dignity and sensitivity you gave to her."

    Family of Resident

  • "The continuity of staff has enabled them to get to know my Mum’s changing moods. It is very reassuring for me and my family that the staff can manage her behaviour with so much care and attention."

    Daughter of Resident

  • "Thank you for the superb care and for setting our minds at rest that our Father is being well cared for."

    Family of Resident

  • "Thank you all for providing such a warm and happy home for my Granny over the last couple of years. Granny received such excellent quality of care and was very happy during her time with you. It gave me such a pleasure to come and visit and to see her in such a happy place."

    Granddaughter of Resident

  • "I would like to say a huge thank you for your care and kindness to my Mother for the last two years. Throughout her time with you, we have all felt she was content, safe and well looked after. May your good work continue for many years."

Our Staff

Tara's Retreat Care Home has a select team of experienced care staff who have each undertaken bespoke training to meet the individual needs of the home's residents. The home provides appropriate ratios of staff both day and night, alongside a day-to-day care ethos that delivers highly-personalised care where dignity, freedom and privacy are consistently upheld. With an industry-envied training programme and ongoing support & development, B&M Care's guiding principles are what define our staff within the dementia care sector.
“I was appointed as Home Manager at Tara’s Retreat in 2017 after working in the same position at B&M Care’s sister home in St Albans, Clare Lodge. Like many other B&M Care Home Managers, I started my career as a Care Assistant and progressed ‘through the ranks’ to Deputy Manager. In addition to my experience, I have completed a number of qualifications, including several NVQs in Health & Social Care, as well as the ‘Champion of Dementia Care’ programme run in conjunction with Alzheimer’s Society.”
