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.
November at Andover Nursing Home
Its November !
Well November is upon us and the nights are closing in. Frost on the ground and definately no more gardening club this year.
So, inside we have a busy month of activities along with our remembrance day service on the 11th.
We have a day out to Longacres for Pre Christmas shopping which should be a great day out for those that are able to attend. We also have the usual suspects for musical entertainment, thank you Neil, Ian and Cosmic Sparkle. With music in mind we have Dirk Jan Ranzijn at the home on the 19th. Dirl is an internationally acclaimed organist who is back for yet another stunning concert at the home, one not to be missed.
Just to touch on October, our cheese and wine evening with gust speaker from the Tower of London was a great success and highly entertaining, Tony will definately be back soon.
Our Whist club continues to run every Wednesday please come along if you would like to join in or learn how to play.
A date for December, please dont forget our Christmas craft fair on the 7th December at The Home, an ideal to get presents from an even wider range of stalls that will be at the fair, there really will be something for everyone.
