Facilities at the Home

Woodlands has undergone a complete refurbishment since joining Brookvale Healthcare in 2003.  Many visitors to the home comment on our regal dining facilities and tranquil lounges.  All of our bedrooms have been tastefully furnished to very high standards.  The home has 28 single bedrooms, 1 luxury single bedroom and 1 companion room.  The home also has 3 specialist bathing and shower facilities.

The garden is laid out to lawn with a number of small areas of shrubs and flowers.  We have garden furniture laid out on our patio and many residents enjoy their summer afternoons with a cup of tea in the sunshine.

Distinguishing Characteristics of the Home 

The Registered Manager at Woodlands Care Home been awarded on a number of occasions.  Not only did she win the Brookvale Healthcare Outstanding Achievement Award in 2006 but she also was highly commended at the SCAT-PP Care Awards hosted by Portsmouth City Council.  Her enthusiasm and desire for excellence are reflected in the staff at Woodlands and all of our residents and families appreciate the warm, family atmosphere created at the home by our staff team.

Activities at the home include gentle exercise groups, reminiscence sessions, bingo, hoi, and arts and crafts.  Trips away from the home are periodically organized and the staff also organize many seasonal events such as Garden Parties, Christmas Parties, and Easter Celebrations.


The new management team have built a great team of carers and support staff. There is a tremendous team spirit within the current staff group. This has led to both happier staff and happier residents. The biggest improvement has been int he activities programme. You now see more residents in the lounge enjoying the different activities laid on for them. In these last few months, we have seen improvements across the board. Facilities, care, food and diet, the garden as well as the activities. I also understand that there are plans for improvements to continue.
