Overview

Our two houses (24 and 26 East Street) together accommodate 15 people but we retain a housekeeper in each house so residents are served meals in two dining rooms one for seven people and the other for eight. This ensures that the houses are homely and special to each group of residents. We have recently linked the houses with a large and elegant sun lounge (2013) opening onto our lovely combined and secluded garden.

One room available to let - contact us today

Each resident has their own flatlet including an en-suite with shower and toilet and a small kitchenette for making drinks or snacks. Our rooms are unfurnished so residents bring their own furniture to make the rooms homely and familiar.

We have dedicated housekeepers with a real empathy for older people. They ensure that the houses are warm, comfortable and safe and that the daily meals provided are varied, nutritious and enjoyable. Lunch and dinner are both home-cooked and served in the two dining room, making mealtimes a social occasion, while residents make breakfast in their own rooms – a gentle start to the day.

The houses have dedicated housekeepers however residents can gain additional support from a Careline provider for out of office hours. Each resident is provided with a pendant and has a support system in their bedroom and en-suite. The support systems are also situated in our communal areas.

Life at the house

Coffee morningThe activities we have are very varied, not only within our houses but with local outings.

Periodically we hire a 15 seat accessible minibus with a volunteer driver and go on trips to local attractions such larger garden centre's etc.

We have a computer (PC) in the sun lounge which is freely available to residents for access to the Internet, Skype etc and our whole establishment has WiFi access also freely available to all.

The sun lounge is a communal lounge for both our houses (connecting them) and has a games table where there is often a jigsaw on the way to completion.

Throughout the year residents can spend time in our large communal garden which has seating areas, a potting shed with a beautiful bow window.

We have a dedicated volunteer who runs our gardening group.

Every spring we enter Fareham in Bloom, which has seen us win a Silver Gilt Award for many years. This has helped to keep our residents busy enjoying planting, nuturing seedlings and watering and looking after their plants.

Plate with cream donut and strawberry

In the summer we hold a cream tea and a family barbecue in our grounds which are shared by both houses and our residents, their relatives and friends as well as our volunteers and staff enjoy these events.

At Christmas time a local church choir joins us for a carol singing evening with wine and mince pies, everyone looks forward to this.

Our residents' birthdays are a special time for us, so we always let them choose what we eat when we have their birthday tea. For his birthday this year, George chose to have cream donuts.

 

Two delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals are cooked daily on site by the housekeeper and tailored to the dietary requirements of our residents.

There is nothing more appetising than a roast on Sunday and a brandy snap filled with vanilla ice cream and topped with fruit is a favourite dessert after a roast lunch.


Prawn cocktail, roast dinner and ice cream dessertIn the evening sometimes we enjoy a cold table with a selection of cold meats and cheeses, vegetable crudities and crackers. Another favourite of our residents is a prawn cocktail, served with brown bread and butter. Homemade cakes are always served to complete the meal.

Table with selection of cold food

We provide facilities in your own room for making breakfast, so you can start your day whenever it suits you.

Our houses keep an allergen folder that shows the content of all foods found in our kitchens and the notice board has on it a list 14 categories of food that may contain allergens.
