Flowerdown Care Home in Winchester

Flowerdown Care Home is positioned just two miles north of the historic city of Winchester in Harestock. There is easy access to the city centre where you’ll find the cathedral, shops, restaurants, and the train station. We offer high quality nursing care and respite care in a warm and friendly environment.

Our bedrooms are set across two floors, and each floor has its own lounge and dining area, and there’s also a garden room on the ground floor, meaning peace and tranquillity is never far away. We have a lovely garden, designed with our residents in mind. The accessible pathways, seating areas, pond and raised flowerbeds make the garden a great place to relax and spend time with visitors.

When you arrive at Flowerdown, we’ll sit down together to understand you, your life story and your needs. This includes any objectives you have, or specific health concerns. We’ll then create a personal care plan together with you, your relatives and our carers.

Our staff are a diverse group, from different backgrounds and with different roles, but we all have something fundamental in common – every single one of us is passionate about care.

Activities vary each week: from crafts and gardening, to animal visits and games on the Nintendo Wii. And everything’s flexible – if it’s sunny we try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day.

We can offer dining on each floor and meals are prepared by our chef at the home. Our dining room always becomes a hub of conversation and laughter, and mealtimes give even our more frail residents a chance to come together and socialise, whether it’s Fish Friday or tea and cakes in the garden.

Urmi Valand

General Manager

Hi, my name is Urmi, and I am the General Manager here at Flowerdown. Welcome to our website!

I qualified as Registered Nurse in India in 2002 and I have worked in elderly care since 2005. I have completed a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership in health and Social Care in 2018. I am very proud to have been promoted to Clinical Lead, Deputy Manager and now General Manager.

I am a passionate nurse and leader who is dedicated to delivering excellent care to our residents through my skilled and well-supported staff. I work in a wonderful home with a fantastic team who are always happy to help. I believe it is important to treat our residents as if they were family.

I endeavour to maintain the quality of the service we provide for our residents. I strive to maintain and have a good relationship with staff, families and local health care professionals.

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading spiritual books and listening to music.

I hope to welcome you here to meet us all one day soon.
