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  

Our commitment to highly personalised care which reflects residents’ wishes from the day they arrive right through until the end of life is also recognised by a National Gold Standards Framework Quality Hallmark Award. This accolade reflects The Andover Nursing Home’s commitment to best practice training in palliative and end of life care and provides evidence that we have all the necessary skills and resources in place to ensure residents’ personal wishes are carried out.

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.

 

LATEST UPDATES

May 2022 at Andover Nursing Home

 

May (in LatinMaius) was named for the Greek goddess Maia, who was identified with the Roman era goddess of fertility, Bona Dea, whose festival was held in May. Conversely, the Roman poet Ovid said that the month of May is named for the maiores, Latin for "elders," and that the following month (June) is named for the iuniores, or "young people".

There’s the Cornish superstition that buying a new broom in May is unlucky. Oh, and apparently, you shouldn’t wash any blankets either! We will continue to wash and brush everything !

This month we have entertainment from Lee Knott with some amazing Jazz, and Dave Dawson is back crooning in The Austen Room. We have Nurses Day to celebrate during National Doughnut Week and with the improvement in weather we will be back in the garden. On the 12th we will be celebrating Nurses Day, come on down to the quiz of the week.

On the 31st we will be closed in the afternoon; we will be preparing for the Street Party to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee. With street food and entertainment throughout the day, let’s hope the weather is kind to us.

Unfortunately we cannot get away fro the subject of COVID but.. When we are open, visiting is no longer restricted but you will would still like you to take a rapid flow test and wear a mask while you are in the home. We are pretty much back to "normal" with a full entertainment programme going forwards. 

Please remember, if you have been vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine, you are less likely to catch COVID-19, and to become severely ill if you do catch it. You are also less likely to spread COVID-19 to other people, but it is still possible for this to happen.
