Allenbrook Lifestyle

The lifestyle at Allenbrook in Fordingbridge is relaxed, friendly and very comfortable. Our attention to detail extends throughout the nursing home to ensure that you are happy, safe and secure.

We have developed a variety of activities that will create an interesting, fun and stimulating environment to live in. These enhance important feelings of self-worth whilst supporting diminishing skills.

An open door and welcoming approach in a safe and secure environment for family and friends to visit at all times allows residents to entertain exactly as they would in their own homes.


Rooms

At Allenbrook we have attractive, spacious and tastefully decorated rooms, many with en-suite facilities. A number of our rooms have period features including original fireplaces and many have views over the extensive grounds.

 

 

Rooms are fully furnished to the highest quality and decorated in a neutral colour to allow personalisation from each resident. Our nurses can help you change the layout or furnishings of your room to suit your individual needs.

We always encourage new residents to bring their own additional furniture and personal effects to make the room feel unique and a 'home from home'. We understand that the move into a room at Allenbrook can be a difficult transition, but we would encourage all residents to personalise their space; hang a picture or bring a chair to make the room your own.


Facilities

We are proud of our mature and colourful landscaped gardens, all wheelchair accessible thanks to our new pathways. Residents can enjoy the spacious surroundings and meet with family and friends in this beautiful setting.

 

 

Our extensive patio seating area is scattered with colourful hanging baskets and flowering tubs from mid-May to the end of summer. This is the perfect setting for various social events from summer barbecues to the annual Bonfire Night Fireworks display.

Inside the home, our facilities are maintained to the highest standards to ensure the best possible level of care. We offer residents the opportunity to meet our Activities Coordinator and get involved with armchair exercises, weekly quizzes, bingo afternoons and a range of other activities to keep them entertained.


Dining

Food is one of life’s simple pleasures, and important for our wellbeing. Our residents enjoy excellent cuisine and a sociable atmosphere in our elegant dining room. Alternatively, residents may prefer to dine quietly in their own room.

 

 

Fresh quality ingredients are delivered on a regular basis to provide our residents with home-cooked and appetising dishes prepared daily.

Our local Hampshire staff understand how important diet is and so, as you would expect, our menus are tailored to provide balanced, nutritious and wholesome cuisine. We are happy to cater for all tastes and dietary requirements.

A selection of fresh fruits, snacks and beverages are always available for our residents and their guests to enjoy.

Activities

An apple a day may keep the doctor away but keeping the mind, body and soul active is a great recipe for longer living and happiness.

We tailor a broad range of activities to achieve many objectives. The importance for some is maintaining strength, flexibility and finding balance; for others, it is stimulation, interaction and finding enjoyment in what they do.

 

 

Allenbrook has an Activities Coordinator that organises daily group sessions, events and entertainment. The nursing staff also take part in organising cinema nights, music sessions and sing a longs.

Our home is also equipped with cutting-edge multimedia technology to allow you to surf the net, email family and friends or even set up a webcam for a virtual face to face chat. Trips and days out are regularly organised with staff and families.
