Care home in Alton, Hampshire
Borovere care home in Alton is one of the warmest, friendliest and happiest Residential Care homes in Alton in North Hampshire. This home is also one of the most popular care homes in the whole of the Alton area. The residents enjoy the homely setting, living a positive and independent life supported by the caring professionals who are so proud to serve them.

Happy and relaxing home for the residents
People who visit the care home for the first time often remark on how happy the residents are and how relaxing the home is for them. This is something the Home Manager and her team pride themselves on. This is also one of the reasons why local health care professionals in Hampshire hold Borovere in such high esteem and also why so many people want to live there.

The team at Borovere are immensely proud to have been awarded the highly coveted Eden Alternative accreditation. This is an internationally recognised award that shows we live and breathe our values. It also shows that we always put our residents first and ensure that they retain a real sense of independence whilst being subtly cared for by our loving and professional team.

Borovere is part of Greensleeves Care, a charity that supports more than 800 older people in more than 20 care homes across England. Our rich history linked with the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service, from who we acquired care homes when Greensleeves Care formed in 1997. We genuinely care about the older people we support, indeed is our only reason for being here.

Home for life
All of the funds the charity receives either through care fees or donations is spent directly on the residents’ care or in improving the quality of the homes in which they live. We are incredibly proud to operate a “home for life policy”. Unlike many of the other homes in the area we would not ask somebody to leave if they ran out of money after living with us for some time.

If you are looking for a care home that puts the residents first and does all it can to make this chapter of their lives special, fun and positive, then visit Borovere.

From the manager

“My name is Karen Shepperdson, prior to becoming the Home manager at Borovere I was the Deputy Manager, this I believe gave me a good insight into what makes a good care home “tick”. Beautiful home with a positive experience At Borovere our aim is to make living in this beautiful home a positive experience. Every one that walks through our doors is a priority for me, not only for the new resident but also for their family and friends. I have an open door approach for everyone, whether it be residents/families or staff, or just someone dropping in to see what we are all about. I sit in on daily meetings relating to the residents and their needs and work alongside the senior team and cover shifts when needed. It makes a welcome change from being office-bound! We continue to be ambassadors for the Eden Alternative. We are empowering residents to make decisions about the way they live and actively looking for ways to keep their identity alive. Above all I want Borovere to continue being the home where people feel listened to, feel safe to discuss their concerns. We want residents to feel comfortable and for the staff to feel that Borovere is the place they want to work.”

— Karen Ann Shepperdson
