caring for complex needs
WELCOME TO ALVERSTOKE HOUSE
An ideally situated Care Home with Nursing offering a high standard of care by our specialist team.
Review from Daughter of Resident 23 October 2020
"Mum is 94, and after much consideration, she decided she needed to go into care. Alverstoke House is a small family-run home, and it has been wonderful. She was depressed, not eating properly and quite weak physically when she made the decision. What a difference. The staff have become family, she is eating and thoroughly enjoying her food (and Mum has been a very picky eater in the past), taking part in activities put on by the staff and making friends. She is looked after day and night by wonderful staff under the personal supervision of a caring owner. We couldn't have chosen anywhere better for Mum to stay. Thank you all."

Letter from Family February 2020
"The family would like to thank you all for the care and kindness shown to her during her time with you. She was happy and comfortable and lacked for nothing. We would especially thank you for the treatment, care and dignity shown to her in her last days. You were brilliant."
Review on Carehome.co.uk from Wife of Resident published on 4 February 2019
"My husband spent the last eighteen months of his life at Alverstoke House, transferring there from hospital having been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour. The care of both of us during this difficult time has been amazing and even through his most difficult times, my husband was treated with courtesy and dignity and a great deal of affection. He was happy there and I was able to spend several hours there with him every day, including having a meal there. I and other visitors had use of a kitchen and we could make drinks whenever we needed.
I could not have looked after him so well at home and am so glad Alverstoke House was our 'home from home' for the last eighteen months.
I would like to thank and commend every one of the staff there from the owner, management, nurses, carers and housekeeping. You have made the last eighteen months livable, through one of the hardest times of our life."
Review on Carehome.co.uk from son of resident published on 4 February 2019
"It was a place Dad called home. It is spotlessly clean and has a welcoming, friendly and relaxed atmosphere created by cheerful, kind and compassionate staff. He always enjoyed his light and airy room with its views of The Spinnaker. He was always impressed with his daily personal care, often carried out by excellent young staff, a very tough job at that age. In the last days, Dad received continuous 24-hour monitoring when a senior nurse held his hand at his passing, unfortunately, I could not be there at the end.
My family and I will always be indebted for the excellent care Dad received from the wonderful staff, many working there in excess of 10 years and some in excess of 30 years, exceptional for the caring sector, pointing to very good management to retain them with smiling faces for so long. The home is also just a 10min walk pushing a wheelchair to a beach cafe, a place where Dad enjoyed a piece of cake, a cup of tea and the bustle of the seaside and its views."
