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.
July 2021 at Andover Nursing Home
Half way through the year already !
It has been lovely to see so many visitors face to face again and to welcome new residents and families into the home. Rapid flow testing has made such a difference. We would still like to ask all visitiors if they could complete a rapid test before coming to the home which will save waiting on arrival to complete your test, please show your registered negative test result to reception on your arrival. You will still be required to wear a mask in the home. If you are visiting out of office hours please call the unit you are visiting when you arrive so they can meet you at reception.
You are also now very welcome to take residents out maybe to a local park or home for tea, please always be mindful of others and social distancing, we all still need to be vigallent. Residents need no longer isolate on return.
Activities are returning to "normal" and we have a plethora of entertainment booked in throughout the month. And with the break in the weather recently entertainment has returned to the garden. The garden club will of course now say its too dry ! We will all enjoy the sun when while we can.
As we return to the new normal our weekly newletter will move to a monthly update, if you would like to be included in this please let me know.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
