This care complex in Alton provides residential and nursing care for 75 people, daycare facilities for the physically and mentally frail, and specialist care for the severely mentally frail. There is also a sheltered housing complex of 46 close care apartments. Brendoncare Alton has been specifically designed to enable older people to live independent, happy and fulfilling lives. Set in landscaped gardens, the care complex was opened in 1997 and is proud to offer the full spectrum of care on one site. The purpose-built nursing home provides both residential and nursing care for 75 people. It has daycare facilities for the physically and mentally frail, and respite nursing rooms are available for short-term care. A dedicated wing also provides specialist nursing care for the mentally frail. The close care complex consists of 46 apartments where older people can live independently with access to the home for practical, personal and nursing support when necessary.

The nursing home, Brendoncare Alton, is divided into self-contained wings to give the home-like atmosphere of small family units. Each consists of 15 bedrooms, a spacious and welcoming sitting and dining room and a small kitchen. All the bedrooms have en-suite facilities, a TV point, private telephone line and a nurse-call system. Meals are provided from a central, well-equipped kitchen under the direction of the Head Chef. There is also a restaurant with a licensed bar where residents can entertain their family and friends. Residents are encouraged to be as active as they wish and facilities include a hairdressing salon, a shop and a library which is well stocked with large print books and tapes. There are two lifts. The home enjoys close links with the local community of Alton and there is an enthusiastic friends group. An Activities Co-ordinator helps residents revisit old hobbies or take up new interests, and volunteers visit regularly and help organise activities and social gatherings. Frequent outings are arranged using the homes own minibus. Led by a highly qualified Home Manager with a commercial background, who is supported by a Head of Care with considerable nursing experience, the staff at Alton 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 trained Care Assistants, and all the staff receive continuous education and development. Alton's Daycare services have been designed to meet the social and care needs of older people in the locality, and to afford their carers an occasional break. There are two specialist daycare units, one for physically frail members and the other for mentally frail older people. Members come for just an hour or spend all day. They can choose to relax and socialise, get involved with arts and crafts activities or take advantage of special services including including hairdressing, chiropody and assisted bathing. Members enjoy themselves while their carers have peace of mind knowing they are safe in a relaxing environment with highly trained dedicated staff on hand at all times.
