Brendoncare is a registered charity, dedicated to improving the quality of life for older people through our 10 care homes and 90 friendship and wellbeing clubs.
Situated in the Hampshire town of Alton, Brendoncare Alton provides compassionate residential, nursing and dementia care for 80 people. Brendoncare Alton places the individual at the heart of everything we do.
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.
A close care complex, called Mary Rose Mews, adjoins the home - providing the independence and security of home ownership, together with access to many caring and communal facilities, giving peace of mind. If you are a looking for a home very close by to a loved one in our nursing or dementia care home, you may wish to consider independent living at the Mary Rose Mews.
The Brendoncare Care for Life promise ensures that once residents are accepted in one of our homes they will not have to leave due to lack of funds. Care for Life is a charitable third party top-up* payment that can support those residents who may have been with us for a while and whose own funds have depleted to the threshold set by the Local Authority’s Social Services. At that point social services will start to contribute to the cost of care. We fund about 20% of residents in this way so, in order to help with our own financial planning, we ask residents to complete a financial assessment before moving in to one of our homes. For residents and family members the Care for Life promise often provides enormous relief and reassurance.
*Top-up payments are the difference that needs to be ‘topped-up’ between what the public sector will pay and a care home’s full fees. Third party top-up payments are payments made by a third party, such as a family member or a charity, such as Brendoncare, through our Care for Life promise. Social Services will assess and still require residents to make an affordable contribution.
