About Arcot House
Arcot House is registered for 28 elderly residents and has recently undergone a full refurbishment and a ground floor extension to bring it up to the standard of care home that Doveleigh Care Ltd prides itself in providing. Subsequently, it has received a Top Twenty Award for 4 of the last 5 years from carehome.co.uk for being consistently rated by reviews as one of the top twenty care homes in the South West of England. Arcot House was also awarded “Care Home of the Year” at the 2017 National Care Awards and was also shortlisted as one of only 5 finalists in the 2020 awards. The home is presently rated “Outstanding” by our regulators, the Care Quality Commission. It was recently rated “Outstanding” in all 5 areas of the inspection for the second time, a feat not previously by any other care home in the entire country. 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 and an Art Therapy room 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 resident’s 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 resident’s unique character, personality, likes and dislikes to be respected and supported, allowing their individuality to continue to shine.
