Getting Out and About in Devon

Positioned along the beautiful coast of Devon, residents can enjoy the stunning scenery over the River Dart and the many coves and harbours dotted along the coastline. This is a go-to spot for visitors in the summer months and a fantastic place for a walk or to experience some local food while watching the boats pass by. We believe Devon is the most blissful place to live in England, and you are guaranteed to feel on holiday all year round. 

Residents can be accompanied by fellow residents or loved ones on a day trip into Devon exploring the cultural sites. From exploring Dartmouth Castle, Blackpool Sands, Dartmouth Steam Railway and Steam Company and Coleton Fishacre National Trust, there are countless places to explore where cherished memories can be formed. If residents want to travel further afield into the City of Exeter they can do so, and thanks to our on-site chauffeur-driven Mercedes, residents can ride in style with this fantastic service.

Nursing Care

Our nursing home provides superb nursing care 24 hours a day, seven days a week for all residents who are in need of assistance for a qualified nurse. Our nurses and care assistants are made up of skilled and experienced professionals. Nursing care is greatly beneficial for those with high dependency needs, physical disabilities, long-term illnesses and palliative care needs. 

Each resident is allocated their own nurse, in order to provide a familiar face to residents and their families, and who will provide assistance with personal care and administer medical treatment. No matter the challenges someone may be facing, our staff works hard to ensure every resident is always happy in their environment.

Residential Care

Our residential care home offers superior residential care for older people and is the most appropriate option for individuals who can accomplish most tasks day-to-day but need assistance here and there. Residents of The Fleet can enjoy socialising with others and take part in many of the home’s activities, where mealtimes and housekeeping is taken care of. 

This option is also available to those who may require nursing care in the future; regular assessments will take place and care plans will change accordingly with residents’ evolving needs to ensure the correct care is always given.

Specialist Dementia Care

Our team at The Fleet Care Home has received ongoing, specialist dementia care training in order to deal with all stages of dementia. Our staff treats each of our residents living with dementia as the person they are, tailoring their care to an individual’s specific requirements, interests and abilities. 

We get to know our residents and loved ones in order to understand the lives they have lived previously and to ensure their overall health and well-being is being looked after. Activities are created by our Activity Coordinators to ensure most are dementia-friendly, as having a condition such as dementia shouldn’t stop you from joining in on the fun.

Everyone needs a break from daily duties from time to time. The Fleet Care Home offers a comfortable stay while your needs are taken care of by our team; whether you’re caring for a loved one or simply need a break from a stressful situation. Respite care is also beneficial for someone who is recovering from an illness or fall.
