This beautiful purpose built new care home is now open in Fareham and has been specifically designed to provide high-quality residential care to the elderly, including those individuals living with dementia including Alzheimer's disease. The home has spectacular views of the Meon Valley and all ground-floor rooms have direct garden access. Residents and visitors are able to enjoy our cafe facilities in our reception area.

Residential care

Our brand new home provides high quality care in a warm, homely and friendly environment. Our team of qualified and dedicated staff focus on the individual needs of residents and are committed to providing professional and respectful care with the resident at the heart of everything they do. 

Dementia care

The home has a dedicated area within it which we call our Memory Lane Community. This provides care for people with dementia including Alzheimer's disease. Within our community, memory boxes with small reminders and items such as photographs are used to help each person reminisce. Other features such as adapted crockery and tableware, sensory gardens with low-risk walkways and activity kitchens also enable people to engage in life's everyday simple tasks and pleasures. Essential to our homely feel is the enhanced relationship of trust we build with family, friends and residents.

Our luxurious facilities combined with highly trained staff ensure each and every individual is given superior attention. Our 24-hour care is provided in a warm, welcoming environment, with delicious meals and daily activities, including a choice of therapeutic approaches. Together with our lively social calendar, this helps to stimulate our people’s minds, and empower them to approach their future in a positive way.

Life at The Fernes Care Home

Ensuring that we deliver high quality care to those we support isn’t our only priority here – we also want to offer excitement and, most importantly, to ensure that everyone feels at home. That is why we employ trained staff who are committed to delivering a stimulating activities programme and nutritious cuisine, which are supplemented by services and facilities that are designed to make life here as pleasant as possible.

Care Home in Fareham | The Fernes

Catherine Bezer

General Manager

I am delighted to be appointed the new General Manager for our new build in Fareham. 

I have been in nursing for 27 years and have worked both in the NHS and Private Sectors. Ten years ago I moved into care home management which I have been doing ever since.

I have a wealth of experience in the delivery of nursing, residential and dementia care and I am looking forward to establishing a new team to lead, inspire, mentor and develop. 

My career in nursing has been predominately in general medicine including respiratory, heamotology and palliative nursing care as well as acute stroke management and rehabilitation.

My passion within a care home setting is to ensure that residents receive the highest standard of quality care and keeping that focus at the core of how I lead my team. I love to lead by example which makes me a very hands on manager and ensures that I am continuously involved in both the management and delivery of the care.

I have established myself within both the care sector and the local area during the past 7 years and it’s a place I am proud to call home.  My engagement with healthcare professionals as well as in the local community has allowed me to develop some very strong and valuable relationships which I believe will heavily contribute in my role as General Manager at our new home.
