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’.
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.
October 2021 at Andover Nursing Home
As we move into Autumn we would normally expect temperatures to drop but they seem to be holding their own ? As usual our entertainment and activities programme will be guided by the weather !
It has been lovely to see so many visitors face to face again and to welcome new residents and families into the home.
From now on, we would ask all visitors if they could complete a rapid test before coming to the home we would be grateful. If you need to test when you get to the home you will now need to make an appointment for your visit. Visiting times will be 10.00am - 3.00pm Monday to Friday, 10.00am - 2.00pm Saturday and Sunday.
100% of our staff have had both vaccines and the majority have already had the booster as always we strongly recommended that all visitors take te opportunity to be vaccinated before visiting the home. Later this month our residents will be receiving the Flu vaccine and the Cocid-19 booster.
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 vigilant. 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 forecast for October seems variable from sunny days at 20 degrees to snow !
