Our introduction to Yoga held on Friday 5th October was a great success for both residents and staff, more sessions will be held soon. Thank you Parminder.
Our recent Gourmet Dinner night was a great success and enjoyed by all those that attended, residents, their visitors and staff all thoroughly enjoyed chef's cullinary masterpiece. Dates will be available to future gourmet nights soon.
There are almost 10,000 nursing homes in England and fewer than 50 have proved they have what it takes 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. 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’.

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.
