Situated in Otterbourne near Winchester, this nursing home provides residential and nursing care for 28 older people and a 22 unit close care complex adjoins the home. The Old Parsonage aims to enable older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives. It is situated in the pretty village of Otterbourne, set back from the main road which links Winchester and Southampton. The early Victorian house has been considerably extended to provide accommodation suitable for nursing, while maintaining its atmosphere and charm. The walled garden and extensive grounds add to the character of the Home which also provides nursing support and facilities to the adjoining 22 unit close care complex of apartments and bungalows.
The Old Parsonage offers residential and nursing care for 28 people in a warm and friendly environment. It provides a home where older people are helped to live as normally as possible and where the emphasis is on quality and enjoyment of life. The staff offer highly skilled nursing and rehabilitation when necessary, and are proud to do so in an atmosphere where residents can feel they are still in charge of their own lives. In the older part of the house each room is different, with its own particular character. In the newer nursing wing, people are still encouraged to bring their own possessions and furniture, even their pets, and to arrange their room as they wish. Most residents enjoy their meals in the relaxed atmosphere of either of the dining rooms where their family and friends can join them. The Home''s philosophy is that residents should be able to make decisions for themselves and choose how to spend their time. Many of them enjoy going out, joining in activities or just spending time with each other. There are regular visitors to the Home which has strong links with the local community and an active friends network. Residents are encouraged to continue with previous leisure interests, and there are plenty of opportunities to be sociable. However, for those who prefer more peace and solitude, their privacy is respected. Led by an enthusiastic and well-qualified Home Manager, the staff at The Old Parsonage work as a close team and are committed to the Brendoncare philosophy. They make every effort to provide care which promotes privacy and dignity, and to understand each resident''s needs and preferences. Registered Nurses are always on duty supported by well-trained Care Assistants, and all the staff receive continuous education and development. Local GPs support the Home and visit regularly so that residents can be registered with the doctor of their choice. A chiropodist attends the Home on a regular basis and other services can always be arranged.
