Nestled just outside of the picturesque Georgian town of Alresford, the handsome building is complimented by beautifully manicured gardens with views across the Hampshire countryside.
Residents are encouraged to partake in the many activities and trips provided to keepi both the mind and body physically active. However, should it be a day of quiet and solitude a watchful eye is kept over them.
Both single and double accommodation is available at the home, ranging from individual ground floor flatlets to character filled smaller rooms in the eves. There are three generous, ground floor and comfortable lounges, one of which is specifically set aside as a and restful and calming retreat away from the hustle and bustle of both the TV lounge and the daily activities, viewing the home is highly recommended
Rooms are fully furnished to the highest quality and decorated using a neutral palette to allow each resident scope to personalise their space and encourage them to bring special items from the home they have left to their new one, offering some comfort to what can be for many a scary time. Our staff are only too happy to help with any changes to the layout or furnishings of the room to suit individual tastes, styles and needs.
The Future of Care Belongs to Ethical and Professional Providers of Care
“The UK is lagging far behind our European and Australian counterparts in recognising the specialist design needs of Dementia care which remains the largest growth market over the next 25 years in the UK.”
The Affinity view is that we must take the time and effort, skill and expertise to build more specialist homes targeting the private market. The higher fees in this market sector mean you can afford to employ good staff on decent wages, and, although the cost average may be higher, the long term sustainable profit is higher, as is therefore the capital value of the business.
