What We Offer
We offer a warm, safe and friendly environment, where people can maintain their independence if they wish, but have access to support in all areas when they need it.
Privacy, dignity and choice are high on our priority list, and personal care is tailored to meet each resident’s individual needs, and to address their specific risks.
Our respite care service allows primary carers, family members or friends to take time away from their everyday care duties to relax, go on holiday or just have a few hours break.
We understand that being a regular carer for a loved one can make it difficult to arrange some respite for yourself and you may feel apprehensive about going away. We provide a high quality respite service, that assures you the peace of mind to enjoy yourself, knowing that your loved one will continue to receive the care and support they need.
We will work around whatever period of respite you need e.g. afternoon break twice a week or a week a month or a couple of months, etc. We’ll work around your and your dependents requirements.
End of Life Care
We provide palliative care for both new and existing residents. We strive to make life as pleasant as possible for all of our residents, even in the most difficult of circumstances.
We ensure our residents are comfortable and cared for so that they can enjoy their time with us and more importantly the precious company of their loved ones. We do everything that we can to ensure dignity and respect throughout.
FACILITIES & ACTIVITIES
These include singers, exercise classes, bingo and animal displays (e.g. owl, snakes & donkeys). Weekly activities are on display on the Activities notice board in reception.
We have regular trips throughout the summer and all residents are encouraged to participate. We welcome family and friends on these trips which continue to be very popular.
The new cinema room was set up in 2011 and this has been a huge success with residents. In March 2021 we started a full refurbishment of the Cinema Room. When this work is complete, the Cinema Room will look better than ever.
We’ll then get back to showing regular films. Snacks are offered to enhance the cinematic experience.
Hair Salon & Therapist
We have weekly visits from a freelance hairdresser and a reflexology therapist. These services are available by appointment and can be arranged by speaking to a member of staff
This is situated next to the ground floor lounge and leads directly into the garden. It’s a fantastic space to sit and relax in summer or winter and has great views of the garden.
We have lovely enclosed gardens with lots of trees, bushes and shrubs. This is a very picturesque area and our residents are free to wander around this space whenever they want to.
We have many options for bedrooms, and this includes:
- Double-rooms for couples and close friends.
- Some rooms lead directly out into our large, enclosed garden. Other rooms have fantastic views of Dartmoor National Park where you’ll also be able to see dogs and their owners, sheep and Dartmoor ponies.
- Most of our rooms have en-suite facilities.
- Some rooms can be adapted to your needs e.g. ceiling hoists, etc.
- We allow dogs, cats and other pets into the care home with their owners, but this is at the manager’s discretion and subject to certain conditions. We currently hold a 5-star Cinnamon Trust award for being a pet friendly care home.
DINING ROOM / FOOD
Our dining area is a relaxing and comfortable environment for dining and socialising.
We use Apetito foods for our lunches and dinners. The meals are packed with quality and nutritious ingredients created by Apetito’s in-house dieticians. Their food looks great but also tastes great. The food caters for individual dietary needs, such as diabetes, choking risks, those who are vegetarian, those who have specific religious requirements such as Kosher, Halaal, etc
The Apetito menu is extensive and residents have plenty of choice. For residents who would prefer something different, our cooks are on hand to prepare a meal that is specific to an individual resident’s requirements.
Breakfast is prepared on-site by our cooks and can include cereals, porridge, bacon and eggs, tea, coffee and juice.
