About Harrier Grange

Harrier Grange Care Home offers an enriching and fulfilling lifestyle to up to 66 individuals at an incredibly affordable price in Andover. Our highly skilled and completely qualified team of nurses and carers is here to encourage and facilitate our residents as best they can when it comes to living as independently as possible with as little or as much assistance as they require. Harrier Grange is a private care facility located in Hampshire that provides Residential, Dementia, Nursing and Respite Care.

 Here, we do so much more than just address the care needs and requirements that each and every one of our residents has. Our approach to ongoing healthcare for the elderly is all about looking after their total well-being, and making sure that all of our residents are reaching their full potential while staying with us here at Harrier Grange Care Home.

Our Values at Harrier Grange

Our main goal at Harrier Grange Care Home is to create a comfortable, caring, and high-quality environment for our residents. This can only be accomplished by directly listening to our residents’ opinions and interests. Quality care requires good management, which includes, but is not limited to, a variety of different audits and regular, routine checks.

We always want to be the number one service provider and care facility of choice within the local community we serve, and we do this by prioritising quality in everything we do for each person we support and our teams. Having that as our priority helps us stand out among the crowd and helps our residents reach the all important decision of staying with us permanently. We are completely and utterly dedicated to ensuring that our residents live the lives they wish to, and that we can offer them the greatest joys in life, as well as supporting their relatives and friends in any way we can.

Our goal is to improve and develop our home by providing high-quality treatment, support, and excellent hospitality. Dignity, integrity, trust, respect, kindness, and compassion are some of our most core principles. Harrier Grange Care Home, we feel, is more than just a care home; it is also a community, offering a warm, friendly environment as well as a comfortable lifestyle that is both stimulating and satisfying all year round.

We do everything we can to guarantee that our residents live a satisfying life each and every day they spend with us, which is why we do everything we can to ensure that we are looking after each individual as a whole.
