Chaucer House moves forward with Avante Care & Support
Avante Care & Support is delighted to announce the addition of Chaucer House, a stunning care home in Canterbury, to its care home portfolio.
The modern purpose built nursing and dementia care home located on Littlebourne Road in Canterbury was acquired on 9 March and becomes the 10th home in the Avante family. Avante Care & Support is a not for profit charitable organisation that has provided dementia, nursing and mental health care for nearly 30 years. We care for over 1,000 people through our residential care homes and home care and wellbeing services across Kent, Bexley and Greenwich.
All nine care homes and two home care branches are all rated as Outstanding or Good by the Care Quality Commission. Avante Care & Support is a popular and trusted care provider and already has a care home near Canterbury, Bridge Haven, located in the pretty rural village of Bridge.
Stuart Cross, Managing Director says ‘I am delighted to be able to welcome the residents, relatives and staff of Chaucer House to Avante Care and Support. I have been very impressed by the obvious dedication of the staff I have spoken to, and the quality of the home. Our Vision for all our homes and services is ‘Communities where everyone has a vibrant and fulfilling life’. We will be looking to build on the excellent work that already goes on in Chaucer House in order to make this vision a reality for the people we care for.
A key part of this will be introducing our philosophy of care, the Eden Alternative. All our existing homes and services are Eden accredited and we think this provides an ideal foundation for personalised, attentive care that promotes a vibrant and fulfilling life’.
