Tel: 01242 232012

Avondale Nursing Home is located in Montpellier, close to the centre of Cheltenham, a highly reputed centre for the care for older people suffering from age-related conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

The quality and commitment of their personnel ensures that residents receive the optimum in care. Specific training in dementia care is provided to all staff and the home’s infrastructure includes the provision of an enclosed garden, where residents can enjoy the outdoors in a secure setting.

The 20-bed home provides an intimate environment, its size contributing to the warm, “family” feel. This, combined with an open door visiting policy to encourage families to stay in regular contact, provides a welcome contrast to the institutional feel often experienced at large, purpose built facilities.

An extensive activities programme ensures that residents remain stimulated and maintain regular contact with the local community.

Review of Avondale Nursing Home in Cheltenham

My mother has been a resident at Avondale since March 2012. She moved there, aged 91, in a state of shock and high anxiety following a fall and hip operation. An unhappy period of rehabilitation in a local hospital and short period at home which proved impossible for her to sustain even with a care package. I was and still am amazed at the level of care and homely friendliness at Avondale administered by all the staff, nurses, carers, cooks, cleaners, maintenance staff, activities staff and the manager herself. Not only to my mother but to me and other family members. In short I cannot recommend this nursing home highly enough and encourage anyone who wants a family environment combined with high standards of nursing care for a loved one, to consider it seriously.

Review of Avondale Nursing Home in Cheltenham

The facilities and rooms are excellent and the staff friendly and efficient. The home never smells of urine and if there is an 'accident' it is cleaned immediately. We can visit 24 hours a day and staff are always willing to help or discuss any issues or questions we have. Dad has been a resident for nearly 2 years and in that time we have had no complains. Would recommend to any family looking for a nursing home for a loved one with dementia.
