Alverstoke House Nursing Home was originally part of the National Children’s Home site off Clayton Road in Alverstoke, near Gosport in Hampshire. Alverstoke House Nursing Home first opened in 1985 as two buildings; one offering residential care and the other nursing care. The two buildings were later joined together and extended to create one purpose built caring home.

Our Approach And Solution
Alverstoke House Nursing Home benefits from a number of services, meeting their needs, as part of an agreed service contract. This agreement includes Benfield Fire Safety being on hand to resolve any issues and provide expert advice.
Benfield Fire Safety provides an annual risk assessment, with subsequent reviews to ensure compliance with fire safety law. Fire safety awareness training takes place regularly and includes three scheduled sessions; two for the day-shift and one for the night-shift. The training is tested annually by a facilitated fire evacuation drill; one during daytime operations and one in the evening to accommodate the night-shift. Benfield Fire Safety evaluates the evacuation and provides a report.
