Arcot House Care Home is the most recent acquisition of Doveleigh Care Ltd. Arcot House is a grand Georgian manor house in the beautiful town of Sidmouth that was originally converted into an old peoples home in honour of war veterans. Arcot House is registered for 23 elderly residents and is presently undergoing a full refurbishment to bring it up to the standard of care home that Doveleigh Care Ltd prides itself on providing. So far the refurbishment has included ongoing redecoration of bedrooms and communal areas, new furniture for inside and out and a new fence to provide both privacy and security for the residents. There has been a drive to increase staffing numbers which has enabled the discontinuation of use of agency staff. The increase in staff numbers has meant that the care is being given by friendly, familiar faces and not by different strangers which can be difficult when you are at your most vulnerable.The home has a large entrance hall with grand staircase. There is a large bright lounge overlooking the spacious, south facing, private garden. There is also a small library where residents can enjoy some quiet time should they so desire. The dining room is separate providing plenty of space for social dining, though it remains each residents personal choice as to where they wish to enjoy their meals.
Care of the residents is centred around each individual, with as much input from the resident, or their chosen representative, as possible. This allows the residents unique character, personality, likes and dislikes to be respected and supported, allowing their individuality to continue to shine.
