Chaucer House provides residential, nursing and dementia care. We work to create a welcoming atmosphere and put the health and well-being of the residents at the heart of everything we do.


Finding the right care home for a loved one can be a daunting task. At Avante Care & Support we can give you peace of mind that during this challenging time you are choosing a safe, welcoming and caring environment at our care homes.


You may be aware that alongside the necessary measures to protect residents and staff, there is a temporary requirement for all care homes to care for new admissions in isolation, to help with this we have arranged for some additional comforts for all new residents to enjoy, all provided at no extra cost.

At Avante we will ensure that you are able to stay in close contact with scheduled video calls and scheduled visits, and in addition, if your loved one moves into any one of our care homes, we would like to offer you the first night stay free.

Finding the right Care Home can feel overwhelming at any time. The COVID-19 pandemic means that care homes have had to learn to do things differently, like every household in the country.

This short guide is here to help you think about what you need to know and the questions you might ask on your own behalf, or for someone else you are acting for, when thinking about a choice of home during COVID-19.

We have an open door policy across all of our homes. You are welcome to visit at any time and see what care is provided. Our staff are there to assist with any questions you may have.
