Welcome to The Andover Nursing Home
There are almost 10,000 nursing homes in England and fewer than 50 have proved they have what it takes to receive an overall Outstanding rating. We are extremely proud to be one of them.
The Care Quality Commission found The Andover Nursing Home to be exceptionally effective, caring and well led when they made an announced inspection in January 2017, under new ownership we will of course be re-inspected. Their report highlighted how people who live here feel that they are treated with kindness and how their needs are ‘consistently met by staff who have the right competencies, knowledge, attitudes and behaviour’.
The feedback inspectors received from residents, staff and relatives was positive throughout. We hope you will take time to read the report in full - please ask for a copy at reception or visit www.cqc.org.uk
Fundraising initiatives by The Friends of The Andover Nursing Home further enhance residents’ social lives both in and outside the home by supporting the work of the activity organisers. Money raised through fetes, fayres, jumble sales, dinner nights and sponsored events ensures that high calibre entertainment is a regular feature of our activities programme. The additional funds also help support transport and other costs associated with memorable days out. Membership is free and open to residents, their family members and friends.
January 2020 at Andover Nursing Home
Before we launch into a New Year let's just look back on 2019.
Aside from our exceptional activities and local trips out to Andover and the surrounding villages, we had a busy year with trips out further afield to Houghton Lodge, Wilton House, our annual trip on the Kennet and Avon canal and not just one but two trips out on the Dolphin on the Solent; we even managed an afternoon at the races.
Musically 2019 was packed as usual with regulars Ian, Neil, Robin and Amanda all here nearly monthly, with Cosmic Sparkle showing no signs of slowing down and of course Delvis came in from Vegas !
DirkJan Ranzijn made two apperances in 2019 to entertain our residents and our theatre groups were simply amazing all year. December saw the start of the homes own memory choir which will hopefully perform outside the home at local concerts very soon.
Our "Weekend Break in St Albans" is still available to all residents enabling them to have a change of scenery and the opportunity to visit St Albans and stay in Alban Manor Nursing Home with all of the care and facilities we have here in Andover. If you would like more details on our weekend break for residents please let us know.
January is always a quiet month, recovering from a busy December calendar, however we do have Amanda and Ian here and Delvis is back from his Christmas break in Vegas ! Doorstep entertainment are also here for yet another rousing performance and the memory choir will be here rehearsing.
We will of course be celebrating Burns Night and the Chinese New Year, not forgetting penguin awareness day on the 20th !
Have a great New Year.
If you have not been to the home please drop in for a chat and a coffee and enjoy our hospitality & entertainment.
