Staff at Challoner House are celebrating after our home performed strongly in Your Care Rating 2017, a nationwide survey of care home residents, families and friends. The results show we were given an overall score of 907 out of 1,000 by residents, and 872 by family and friends. You can read the report here.
Following significant investment, Challoner House has a brand new look! The appearance of our home has been carefully designed with the people we care for in mind. Our bright new reception area is the perfect spot for socialising or taking part in one of our many daily activities. Our beautiful new dining room is a wonderful place to enjoy a three-course home-made lunch and our new bedrooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. Why not take a look at our virtual tour to see our brand new look? Or alternatively, pop in to our home to see our brand new look for yourself!
Considered by many to be the home of choice in the Winchester and Southampton areas – Challoner House offers high quality nursing, residential and dementia care in an unrivalled setting located in the lovely village of Chandlers Ford, and on one of the main bus routes into out and of Southampton and beyond.
The warmth of welcome from our team of staff can be felt the minute you step foot into our lovely nursing home. With their help and the help of the ladies and gentlemen who live with us – we really do offer a home from home. Our team provides a high level of care all the time and every time with a caring and person centred attitude. We ensure the ladies and gentlemen who live with us feel safe and comfortable – they are ‘cared about’ as well as ‘cared for’. Our nursing care philosophy is based on the use of personalised care plans. Drawn up with the individuals we support and their families our care plans will help ensure that each person we look after is treated with respect and that their independence and choice are maximised.
Our passion for our home can be seen in everything we do - in our cooking, hospitality, housekeeping and, of course, in organising activities for our residents. Activities make up the most important part of all our days and at Challoner House we ensure we provide a variety that reflects the interests and capabilities of all the ladies and gentlemen we support. We make full use of the home’s mini bus and being located so close to the M3 in minutes we can be enjoying the beautiful surrounding countryside. We have several regular group sessions – but perhaps our most popular – certainly with the ladies, are our regular pamper sessions!
Our beautifully landscaped award-winning gardens allow our residents to enjoy a high standard of outdoor living in the summer months. One of our residents recently reached the final of a nationwide competition which involved all Barchester homes and he came back winner of the resident’s garden category! We could not be prouder of him!
Respite Care & Short Breaks
Everyone deserves time out. Whether you care for a relative or are in need of care yourself, taking a break from your usual routine can do the world of good. Respite care is ideal for those looking for convalescence, either following a hospital stay or an illness. Many people also arrange a trial stay as a temporary resident to see if the home is the right choice for them as their new home. At Challoner House we are committed to providing you with the care and support you need to get back on your feet.
Choosing a care home for yourself or a loved one can prove to be such a daunting and confusing time. So please don't hesitate to contact me for any further information you feel you may need at this stage. Alternatively – why not pop in for a cup of tea and a chat? Sometimes talking things through makes tougher decisions a little easier.
I really do look forward to hearing from you.
