Individual Care for Individual People
A family run boutique Nursing Home specialising in residential and nursing care for elderly ladies and gentlemen, offering respite and convalescence, as well as long term care.
Welcome to Alverstoke House
I would like to personally welcome you to Alverstoke House, our family owned care home in the beautiful village of Alverstoke, Hampshire. We are 500 metres from the stunning Stokes Bay beach overlooking the Solent and we are a short drive from the key cities of Portsmouth, Southampton, and Winchester.
We are pleased to have received our most recent September 2021 CQC Inspection report which has awarded us a GOOD rating which will be published on the CQC website shortly. This has been achieved by our dedicated team working closely with our partner professioanl bodies the CQC, the Local Authority (Safeguarding and Social Workers), CCG and other partner professional healthcare bodies including GP's, Care Home Team, Older Persons Mental Health Teams, Diabetes Nurses, SLT (Speach and Language Therapists), Local Dental Services, QA and War Memorial Hospital services.
Alverstoke has run as a family nursing home for over 30 years, led by me for 17 years. I work full time at our home to ensure that I know our residents and their families well, and to support our staff and mission for continuous improvement.
Our residents are at the centre of everything that we do; our mission is to care about them and not just to care for them, relating to them as individuals, each with their own particular wants and needs.
As a team we recognise that deciding on a nursing home can be very difficult. We are happy to help you decide and really focus on what matters most to you, so please do call to talk through your needs.
If you decide to become part of the Alverstoke House community our team will work hard to ensure Alverstoke House is first and foremost a welcoming home and will help ensure the process of settling in is as smooth as possible.
Please call for a chat, or arrange to pop in to see us.

Review: daughter of a resident 30 June 2021
“My mother has been a resident for the past two and a half years, when she arrived she had a grade 4 pressure sore which I was told would never heal and she would only be able to sit out of bed for one hour per day. But thanks to the wonderful care and attention she has received it has completely healed and she can sit out and join in activities as much as she pleases. Thanks to the fantastic food, her diet has completely changed for the better. The range of activities is outstanding too.”
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."
Review from a visiting home manager June 2021.
"I visited Alverstoke House to do an assessment on a possible service user, when I visited the home the service user was treated with the utmost respect and dignity, the home was clean and the staff friendly. "
Review (Daughter of Resident) published on 16 November 2020
My mum has lived at Alverstoke House for the last two years and has been happy. The staff are kind and professional and have really got to know mum, her likes and dislikes, her medical needs as well as a bit about her as a person. Mum particularly enjoys good food and the various activities provided. She enjoys being able to go out into the garden or sit by the pond.
On the few occasions that mum has needed extra care (a trip to the hospital for example), this has been organised and mum has received great care from the staff. As a relative, I have always felt welcome and have got to know some of the staff. I live some distance away but am happy that mum is safe, warm and well cared for.
We accept applications from people with a wide range of experience as we provide full training and development opportunities for all, leading to a range of care qualifications.
