My Aunt was in Alverstoke House for 5 years. She was blind and her physical condition gradually declined. She died in Alverstoke House in January 2015. She was well looked after and with dignity. She enjoyed her meals. It was difficult for her to join in some activities.

Although mum was only at Alverstoke House for a short time for end of life care. The change in her was tremendous in such a positive way. The care she received from the staff was outstanding in her own words "They care, They Really Care" They made us,the family feel welcome and always had time for us and mum, no matter what time day or night. When mum had to go back to hospital for emergency treatment, the staff said "you get her back here to us, so we can look after her." As a family we feel we definitely made the right choice with Alverstoke House.

The nursing care provided has enabled my father to reduce the amount of medication he is on, and allowed us to have meaningful conversations for the first time in some 18 months. His quality of life has improved well beyond my expectations. The staff at Alverstoke House deserve high praise for the care and attention they have shown my father.

My father, Thomas Harford was at Alverstoke House for 11 months before he sadly passed away in January 2015. He was very happy at Alverstoke House, and we were very grateful for all the support we were given during his short stay. I will highly recommend this care home if need be. The staff were fantastic.

Mum went in to Alverstoke House for short stay, and I was very impressed with care she received. She could not fault the care and when or if the time comes mum has said she would go there to stay.

My Mother was taken ill and admitted to QA, she then came to Alverstoke House to respite care. I have never seen my Mum so well looked after and happy all her needs/preferences were met. The staff were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Being at Alverstoke House was a good experience for my mum and she would go back if needed which was a blessing for me as her daughter.

My mum was looked after by Alverstoke House care home in her last weeks. I would just like to say how great and professional they were. They cared not just for my mum but for me and my dad too. My mum even said herself how wonderful all the staff were, they couldn't do enough to keep my mum comfortable and happy.

From time to time I initially viewed the Alverstoke House Nursing and Care Home to taking my mum and dad to visit then stay for a weeks respite care. We were all treated with kindness and respect and attention. The staff were all so friendly and understanding. This was my dads first stay in respite care and we were all a little apprehensive but everyone put us at ease and dad enjoyed his weeks break, especially the food which he loved. Thank you everyone at Alverstoke House
