Avonbourne Care Centre offers a home environment that allows our residents to thrive. Every resident has access to a comfortable and homely household living area, including a beautifully furnished lounge and sitting room, kitchen and dining room. From spacious bedrooms with stylish en-suite ‘wet room’ bathrooms to the tranquil and fully accessible, landscaped gardens.
Residents can enjoy the social activities going on every day in the central communal area including a hairdressing salon, coffee shop, and cinema/entertainment room. The comfortable coffee shop on the first floor is a perfect place to meet family and friends. For those that would like a little more privacy, each bedroom features a comfortable armchair for those moments.
We try to learn as much as possible about each person who lives with us, so that we can provide them with care and support tailored to their individual needs and preferences.
Avonbourne is located in a quiet residential area, close to Old Sarum, a mighty Iron Age hill fort that was the original home to Salisbury Cathedral. The homes location is full of history and is home to Salisbury Cathedral and a short drive to Stonehenge.

Meet the team
The talented chef and kitchen team prepare tasty, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.
Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake to enjoy.
Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.
Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.
Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us. Each home has a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.
