Nursing Care

The Fleet offers nursing care for all residents who are in need of extensive care and attention from a qualified nurse. Our nursing home has a team of skilled and experienced professionals whose mission is to provide outstanding personalised care. Nursing care greatly benefits individuals with high dependency needs, mental and physical disabilities, long-term health conditions as well as palliative care needs. 

We adopt the key nursing approach, meaning each resident is allocated a nurse who is dedicated to providing support to both the resident and their families, and who will provide person-centred care and support no matter the time of day or night. Our nurses go above and beyond to ensure every resident is comfortable and content at all times.

Residential Care

Our residential care home in Dartmouth is suited for individuals who need a little assistance with their daily routines as by doing it alone becomes a great struggle. Residential care is for older people seeking companionship with other like-minded people and wish to carry out their hobbies in a social setting.  

Residents of The Fleet have the freedom to join in on many activities as they wish whilst mealtimes and housekeeping duties are completely taken off their hands. We make sure to regularly assess our residents so that care plans are accurate and can be altered if needed to meet residents’ evolving needs to ensure the correct care is always provided. 

Dementia Care

The staff at The Fleet Care Home receive ongoing dementia care training in order to provide exceptional care for people living with dementia. Our team ensures to treat each resident with the dignity and respect they deserve, providing effective care to meet the specific needs and interests of the individual. 

We work closely with our residents and their loved ones to understand as much as possible about the lives they have lived and ensure our home meets their expectations. The activities available to residents have been carefully thought out to be inclusive for everyone; we believe everyone should continue to live vibrant lives no matter what.

Respite Care

It is often that we need a break from our everyday lives. The Fleet Care Home provides a comfortable stay while your needs are fully met by our loving team; whether you’re caring for a loved one and need a breather or have recently suffered from an injury or recovering from an operation, respite care will be the best method of care. 

Our future residents can use respite care as a way of staying at our care home for a few weeks before deciding if the home is right for them. Each person will receive a respite care package that’s tailored to their needs and wishes to ensure a resident is fully satisfied throughout their stay. Respite care can be arranged in advance or on an emergency basis.

We Are Always Here For Advice & Support

Knowing when is the right time for someone to transition into a care home can be a daunting time. Our friendly team offers their support and we invite you into our home to discuss your care needs or the care needs of your loved one. That way, you can gain an understanding on the care types on offer and we can advise on whether residential, respite, nursing or dementia care is most suitable. No matter your reasons for needing care, we welcome you with open arms. 

Our care home is regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission; an independent body who inspects all health and social care services in England. Within the CQC inspection report, a care home is given an overall rating and any areas for improvement. The Fleet strives to maintain the highest standards of care for its residents in order for everyone to be truly happy and lead fulfilling lives.
