Welcome to Bluebell Nursing Home! We are located close to the beautiful Southsea beach of Portsmouth. Our team of carers and NHS nurses have over 40 years of experience and support residents with a variety of complex health needs, including dementia and sensory impairments. We are open now to welcome your loved one.

Located just a stone’s throw away from the iconic Canoe Lake, Bluebell Nursing Home accommodates up to 49 residents at once. A well-established and friendly team of 75 staff supports the home.

Matthew Smith, a native of Portsmouth, leads the operations. The team creates care plans that suit each resident’s support needs, skills, aspirations, and safeguarding requirements. Throughout the year, we host events, themed nights, and activities to stimulate and engage our residents. Our chef prepares foods from across the world for these occasions.

The team specializes in creating personalized engagement and support for residents with Dementia. The home operates a unique Staff Champions Programme, which helps everyone in the team to give and receive advice, share expertise, and stay up to date in the field of specialized care. The team will not only cater to your loved one’s physical needs, but also learn all about your loved one and create opportunities for positive reminiscence.

Our facility is charming, convenient, and easily accessible by public transport. The home has a lounge and separate dining areas. The entire facility is adjusted for people with Dementia, with specific furniture and wall decorations. The locality perfectly suits those who enjoy a peaceful lifestyle. Our residents love the warmer seasons, when they can sit in the garden, in the crisp sea breeze, and listen to the birds in our outdoor aviary.

In short, Bluebell is your loved one’s new family home on the Southsea beach.

From the manager

“I have been with the Bluebell Nursing Home for 10 years, working in all areas of the home before stepping into my current role as the Operations Manager. I aim to ensure that all our residents feel safe and well cared for at all times. I feel strongly about exceeding the quality of care we provide in my care home and city. We are rated “Outstanding” in the Well-Led category by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). We are constantly looking for ways to improve our residents’ experience in Bluebell. You will find that our residents are quite simply the best company one can ask for. If you are looking for a home with an exceptional, long standing team of staff, providing a ‘home-away-from-home’ environment, then you are at the right place.”
