Welcome to Doveleigh Care ltd


At Doveleigh Care Ltd we specialise in care of the elderly. Our aims are to make sure that each and every one of our residents feels fully cared for and supported throughout the day and night, whilst always safeguarding their privacy, dignity and individuality. Residents family and friends are welcomed and encouraged to visit. We feel it is vital that our residents are able to continue with their social lives whilst we support them with their care needs. All care staff within the homes will be appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standard of care. A continuous staff training programme is implemented to ensure that these high standards are maintained in line with the latest development in Care Practices as may be laid down in appropriate Legislation, Regulations and by the Care Quality Commission. Doveleigh Care Ltd employs two activities and interests coordinators to cover the needs of the three homes. The coordinators will arrange activities varying from trips out in the Dove Bus, or in either of our smaller vehicles (Dove Bugs) to the sea side, gardens, theatre etc. or in house activities such as coffee mornings, topical discussions and Wii fit amongst many others. The activities and interests can be directed to either group or individual activities, depending upon the residents wishes. There are excellent medical practices within the local area, the Doctors and Nurses of which will visit our residents and support them with their medical needs as and when required. Opticians, Audiologists and Chiropodists can visit in house if that is what our resident requests. Hair dressing appointments can also be arranged.
