Alverstoke House Care Home with Nursing

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 www.gosport.info.

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 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 24 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 24 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.

For the last five years we have been giving Clinical Placement to Army Healthcare Assistants from The Royal Hospital Haslar, we also provide work experience for students from St. Vincent college who wish to take up a career in care.

We carried out this inspection under Section 60 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008 as part of our regulatory functions. This inspection was planned to check whether the provider is meeting the legal requirements and regulations associated with the Health and Social Care Act 2008, to look at the overall quality of the service, and to provide a rating for the service under the Care Act 2014.

This inspection took place on 6 December 2016 and was unannounced.

An inspector, specialist advisor in nursing and an expert by experience carried out the inspection. An expert-by-experience is a person who has personal experience of using or caring for someone who uses this type of care service. Before the inspection we reviewed previous inspection reports and looked at our own records such as any notifications of incidents which occurred (a notification is information about important events which the service is required to tell us about by law). This information helped us to identify and address potential areas of concern.

During the inspection we spoke with four people, five staff, the registered manager, deputy manager and a partner of the provider. It was not always possible to establish people’s views due to the nature of their conditions. To help us understand the experience of people who could not talk with us we spent time observing interactions between staff and people who lived in the home. We looked at care records for six people and the medicines records for everyone in the home. We looked at recruitment, supervision and appraisal records for seven staff and all training records. We also looked at a range of records relating to the management of the service such as activities, menus, accidents and complaints, as well as quality audits and policies and procedures.
