  • Where you'll work
  • Imagine the best of care delivered in stunning surroundings, where everything is tailored to your loved one’s needs and interests. Care UK’s new Ancasta Grove care home opened on Barnes Lane in June 2021 and offers all this and more.

    Care from a passionate team

    The home’s dedicated team provides residential, nursing and dementia care on a permanent and respite basis. All our colleagues are trained to the highest standards and are passionate about getting to know every resident like a member of their own family. We will learn all about resident’s personality and life story, so that we can tailor every aspect of their care and daily life at the home to their needs, preferences and interests.

    A luxurious care home

    Our brand new Hampshire care home has its own café and bar, cinema, and hair and beauty salon which residents are able to use whenever they wish. Our landscaped gardens are perfect for a stroll, growing fruit and vegetables, or simply for sitting and enjoying the Hampshire sunshine.

    Delivering the latest in dementia care

    Our colleagues receive the latest dementia training designed by Care UK and the experts at the University of Worcester. What’s more, the home itself is built to the latest dementia standards. It is divided into smaller suites to create a homely atmosphere. On the dementia suite, everything from the colour scheme to the signage, lighting and furnishings is designed to support people living with dementia.

    Daily life

    Superb facilities, a great location, and activities galore… At Ancasta Grove there is something for every resident to enjoy.

    At Care UK our approach to care is all about supporting residents to continue enjoying a meaningful lifestyle – doing whatever brings them purpose and joy. Keeping active and engaged in everyday life has been proven to reduce falls and promote wellbeing in older people. It’s even thought to slow the development of dementia in individuals with this diagnosis.

    Our new Ancasta Grove care home is in a fantastic location, between Southampton and Portsmouth, just off the M27 and close to the M3. We’re easy to find but in a charming wooded setting, close to the picturesque River Hamble.
