…and we’re here to make sure that our care homes are everything you’d want for the people you love. The word Anavo originates from the Greek word meaning to ignite, to spark. Our commitment to our residents, their loved ones and everyone we encounter is to ignite the spark inside them so their lives are meaningful and filled with a real sense of purpose, with a positive and healthy approach to later life.
Anavo’s newly built care homes have been carefully designed to promote health, wellbeing, safety, comfort and aesthetic delight both indoors and outdoors.
We ask questions, listen, and discover things that really matter. We come up with imaginative ways to recreate a homely environment where residents can continue to enjoy the pastimes they love and find some new ones too – living in a way which will ignite their spark, sustain a sense of identity and stretch the mind and the muscles as well.
Our care homes welcome others in to add sparkle, joy and fun. They are places where friends, children, grandchildren and members of the community visit, and positive interactions across generations are encouraged.
Our homes feel like homes. They’re charismatic and represent everyone who lives there.
