Viewing and Visiting Our Care Homes
New Admissions Being Taken and Visiting Your Loved Ones
The health and well-being of our residents and staff teams remain a priority at all Avery care homes, and we are managing developments in the Coronavirus outbreak responsibly by following Government, World Health Organisation and Public Health England guidance, as we keep everyone safe and well. This has meant that we have been unable to accept visitors for a tour in person during this time.
We can however show you around via a VIRTUAL TOUR on video media, and now also enable you to visit your loved ones by means of a GARDEN VISIT. For more click here.
You Earn Your Reputation – Here is What the Public Say About Us
Avery Healthcare operates residential, dementia and nursing care homes throughout the UK, with a focus on the highest possible standards of living for our residents and peace of mind for family and friends alike.
We believe that your later years should be as enriching as any other, and that being cared for shouldn’t mean that your quality of living is compromised, whatever your age, whatever your condition. The design of our homes and our carefully selected staff, combined with our diligent approach to each and every resident, affords them the opportunity to flourish, make new friends, maintain contact with their local communities and live a life of possibility.
Finding Your Care Home
When you visit an Avery care home you will see first hand the excellence of our home design, and the comfort and style of our interior spaces, but you will also be struck by something that cannot be fully designed out, something that requires a far more subtle and concerted effort, the creation of a spirit of togetherness, of companionship and friendship.
We understand that fine buildings and good design are just a precursor to creating vibrant, supportive communities for the elderly that give our residents and their families the peace of mind they deserve and which celebrates the lives of our residents through sharing, reflection, good company and above all fun.
It is this diligent approach that has recently earned two of our care homes an overall rating of Outstanding by our industry regulator. Why not visit one of our homes, spend some time in the company of our residents, talk to staff and feel the warmth and support that fills the home.
