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 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 at Andover Nursing Home
July is always a busy month and this year is no exception. It also appears to be a nautical month !
We have a trip out on the Solent Dolphin a great day out on the Solent which quite a number of residents are looking forward too. This has become a regular event. We also have our annual canal cruise on the Kennett and Avon canal.
As this is the holiday time of year we have Yoga on the 19th with Pam.
On the 5th we will be having a tea party for the residents to celebrate the Outstanding rating we recently received again from CQC, our member of parliament for North West Hampshire Kit Malthouse will be at the party to celebrate with residents and staff.
With Wimbledon starting there will of course be an abundance of strawberries and cream and no doubt Pimms in Busy Bees this month. Matt, Ian and Neil will all be here this month for musical entertainment along with Cosmic Sparkle on the 11th.
Lets hope the weather stays well for the gardening club and our trips out this month.
