Barnes Lodge & Caring Companions joins the Avante Care & Support family

by Kirsty Kirsty

On December 4th, 2023, Avante Care & Support proudly acquired Barnes Lodge, a modern purpose built nursing and dementia care home located in Tudeley Lane, Tonbridge. This marks a significant milestone as Barnes Lodge becomes the 11th care home to join Avante’s esteemed portfolio.

The acquisition underlines Avante’s commitment to providing exceptional care and homecare support services throughout Kent and the two London boroughs of Bexley & Greenwich. Barnes Lodge is poised to enhance Avante’s ability to deliver specialised residential, dementia and nursing services to the Tonbridge community.

Avante Care & Support is a not for profit charitable organisation that has provided care to older people for over 30 years. Avante cares for over 1,000 people through its residential care homes and home care support service.

In addition to Barnes Lodge, Avante Care & Support proudly welcomes Caring Companions into its family. Caring Companions will now be an integral part of Avante’s Home Care & Support service, extending its reach to Gravesend, Tonbridge, and surrounding areas. This expansion broadens the scope of Avante’s home care and wellbeing support services, ensuring that individuals in these regions receive the highest standards of care in the comfort of their homes.

Stuart Cross, Managing Director saysI am delighted to welcome the residents, families, and staff of Barnes Lodge and Caring Companions as they join Avante Care & Support. I have been very impressed by the obvious dedication of our new colleagues that I have spoken to, and the quality of the home and home care service.  The overarching vision for all Avante’s homes and services is to create “Communities where everyone has a vibrant and fulfilling life.” Our intention is to build upon the already outstanding efforts in place and transform this vision into a reality for everyone at Barnes Lodge and Caring Companions.

A key part of achieving this goal will include introducing Avante’s care philosophy, the Eden Alternative. All our existing homes and services are Eden accredited and we think this provides an ideal foundation for personalised, attentive care that promotes a vibrant and fulfilling life’.
