Margaret and Mary enjoyed a few games of Go Fish with their afternoon tea and cake.
Arcot House Care Home
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 28 elderly residents.
Dove Court Care Home
Dove Court is a beautiful, genteel care home set high up on the hillside with stunning views looking over the Axe valley towards Axmouth and out over Lyme Bay. The home is set out over three floors. On the first floor there are 10 bedrooms, of which 6 are en-suite. There is also a separate assisted bathroom and toilet.
Doveridge Care Home
Doveridge Care Home is situated in the friendly town of Colyton, also known as the most rebellious town in Devon. The building itself was originally a farm house before it was adapted in to a home for the elderly. Doveridge was bought by Doveleigh in 1996 who since extended it to its present size.
Doveleigh Care Ltd Activities
Doveleigh Care Ltd employs eight 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 amongst many others…
Our ladies at Dove Court enjoyed a lovey art session with Julia one of our fantastic activity coordinators.
The staff under the excellent management have made life at Arcot for my aunt extremely happy. Considering she lived in her previous home for 93 years swearing she would never move this is an extremely commendable achievement and speaks volumes for the dedication of all involved.
My father is a resident at Dove Court, the staff are extremely friendly and nothing is too much hassle. My father is very happy there and visiting is always a pleasant experience. It’s comforting knowing he is in such safe and caring hands!
My wife is treated with respect and is loved and cared for by extremely dedicated staff. Her room is decorated in her favourite colours and is changed as and when required. Everyone that visits always state that everything feels like home from home.
I have family members that use Dove Court for daycare once a week, the staff are fantastic, very helpful and friendly. The home is always clean and tidy and we are always made to feel welcome. The food is always very tasty and plenty of it. Would recommend this home to anyone.
I spent two weeks respite at Arcot House. The staff were all very friendly and the home has a very nice homely atmosphere. Everything you want is done in the way you ask for it to be done, making it very personal. The activities outings were good and made very interesting by the activities lady. We all had great times out. Thank you all for making my stay enjoyable.
To know she is kept warm, secure and well tended is a great worry off our minds. The lunches we can share with new found friends are a treat and the general feeling of the home is relaxed and bright, friendly but dignified. I am delighted to have found and chosen this home having refused many others.
