Florence Court care home in Segensworth Road, Fareham, offers ‘bespoke person-centred residential, dementia and respite care in stunning surroundings’.

It opened on August 23, and general manager Jacqueline Hampton said the first few weeks ‘have been fantastic’.

She said: ‘We’re so pleased to be welcoming residents. They are all settling in well and getting to know our friendly staff and team.’

The care home has facilities which are centred around the residents’ wellbeing, said to be ‘at the heart of Florence Court’.

Facilities include spa bathrooms, en-suite bedrooms with smart TVs, several lounges, an activities room, a cinema, an in-house hair and beauty salon, and a rooftop terrace and dining room.

The home also has a ‘bespoke Memory Lane community’ specially designed for residents who are living with dementia.

This includes themed corridors for easy navigation, personalised care and engaging light projection games to promote movement and interaction.

Jacqueline said the residents love the social side of the home and have all been making new friends as they move in.

They enjoy the regular events and activities that the home puts on, as well as the ‘fantastic choice of food made by our very talented chefs’.

She said: ‘Our residents really enjoy the wide variety of activities we have on offer, especially the virtual events such as the wine tasting event we held recently and the creative writing masterclass we have this week with a best-selling author.

‘They really value these sessions because they deliver such wonderful experiences.’
