History of Alverstoke House 
The two original buildings in which the business is based were built on the National Children's Home site off Clayhall Road in 1980. More information about the National Children's Home at Alverstoke can be found at https://gosport.info/memories-stories/national-childrens-home-nch-alverstoke-memories-history-photos-people/  
When Abbey Homes bought the National Children's Home site soon after for development into housing it was decided the two buildings were too recently built to be knocked down so the Council looked for somebody to buy the buildings who wanted to run a business which would benefit the local area and to improve local services. 
Mrs Janet Hudson R.G.N, R.M. bought the buildings converting them for use as a nursing home. Alverstoke House Nursing Home opened in 1985 originally as two buildings one offering residential care the other nursing care. 
In the last 32 years the two buildings were joined together and extended to create one purpose built caring home, originally for the children and now for the elderly. 
Over these 32 years, Alverstoke House has integrated into the local community providing care for many local residents and a lot of our current residents are through referral. We have built up an excellent reputation in the local area. 
The current service provider is Andrew Hudson who has provided care at Alverstoke House since 2003. The Home Manager is Helen Davison (RGN)(RMN) who is happy to arrange visits in a secure manner.

I am so grateful for your kindness 
I must thank you for your professionalism, your care and love that you extended to P in the seven years she was at home in Alverstoke House. I know it is not an easy job, and I am so grateful for your kindness to me and the family. It has been such a relief to know that P was being cared for in such a wonderful way.
