Brackenlea Care Home

Expert Elderly Care
in the Heart
of Hampshire

Pearson Lane
SO21 2AG

Although mere minutes from the centre of Shawford, Brackenlea fits snugly into its quiet, rural setting. We endeavour to have these relaxing surroundings inform the care we provide, and aided by our exquisite Edwardian frontage, we are proud to offer a home that chimes so well with our overall caring ethos. In Brackenlea, we will support you however we can when you make your home with us.

The interior design of Brackenlea emphasises both space, enabling ease of movement, and light, with high-ceilings and large, well-placed windows. The original features of the house, including our beautiful conservatory, serve to create an environment of serenity and relaxation.

Who we care for

Brackenlea is a 25 bed residential care home. We provide the basic day-to-day support to keep you independent, safe and happy.  Our carers are our greatest asset; each member of staff, from our manager to our chefs, are here to provide a holistic range of care experiences. We mainly provide care for elderly clients, although exceptions can be made. Specifically, we can care for those who need help with:

  • Physical or mental disabilities
  • Dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
  • Day-to-day care support – including cleaning and laundry.

The Garden

Our large walled garden is a secure place to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Plenty of patio furniture is dotted about our broad lawns.

Brackenlea is a beautiful building, but the heart of the home is the family of residents and carers that fill it. Always busy, our activities managers run events, games, shows and parties six days a week, always making sure to balance fun with relaxation. We are always open to visitors and families, whether they are coming just for a quick visit or spending the day with you.

Most of all, we want you to treat Brackenlea as your home. As such, we have fostered relationships with the local GP, who visits once a week; a local hairdresser who visits once a month (for an extra cost); and the chiropodist (for an extra cost).
