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.



July 2024 at Andover Nursing Home

July was named by the Roman Senate in honour of Roman general Julius Ceasar in 44 B.C., it being the month of his birth. Before then it was called Quintilis, being the fifth month of the calendar that started with March.

It is on average the warmest month in most of the Northern Hemisphere. "Dog Days" are considered to begin in early July in the Northern Hemisphere, when the hot sultry weather of summer usually starts. Spring Lambs born in late winter or early spring are usually sold before 1 July.

With the ever present “if the weather allows us” statement, we will have quite allot of entertainment going on in the garden in July, including Cosmic Sparkle, Just the 2 of Us, Bloom & Racket on “Western day”, Neil Turner and… India Lilly goodness lots of music!

Don’t forget we also have the Andover Carnival going past us on the 21st, staff will be here to help you outside to watch the procession.

July also sees a couple of popular sporting events which we will of course celebrate at the home. Wimbledon Tennis finals and the British Grand Prix, these will both be on “the big screen” and the bar will be open staff will be in both weekends to helps with drinks snacks and ice cream ! Also please do not forget World Chocolate Day on 7th July when we will of course be celebrating all things Chocolate alongside the Grand Prix !


During July we will of course be gearing up for the Olympics which start on the 26th. We have a number of garden events at the end of the month with an Olympic theme which we are really looking forward too.

On 24th we will be having a Western themed day, food, music and entertainment from Bloom & Racket in the garden. Our last theme day “Broadway” was a great success and loved by everyone so we are looking forward to another all-encompassing day.
