Doveleigh Care Limited (DLC)

Doveleigh Care Ltd has three care homes in Devon providing care of an exceptional standard. This has been recognised by the Care Quality Commission who awarded all three homes an “Outstanding” rating in their most recent reports. As less than 3% of care homes are presently rated “Outstanding” this is a fantastic achievement.

At Doveleigh Care Ltd we specialise in care of the elderly.

Our aims are to make sure that each and every one of our residents feels fully cared for and supported throughout the day and night, whilst always safeguarding their privacy, dignity and individuality. Resident’s family and friends are welcomed and encouraged to visit.

We feel it is vital that our residents are able to continue with their social lives whilst we support them with their care needs. All care staff within the homes will be appropriately qualified to deliver the highest standard of care.

  • Dove Court is a beautiful, genteel, 32 bed care home set high on the hillside above Seaton with stunning views looking over the Axe valley towards Axmouth and Lyme Bay.
  • Arcot House is a 23 bed home located in the seaside town of Sidmouth. It provides care for elderly people in the beautiful setting of a Georgian Manor house with a large secure garden. A new five bedroom ground floor extension is presently under construction with completion expected this autumn.
  • Doveridge is a homely 20 bed care home, set in an old farmhouse in the friendly town of Colyton. It provides personal care for older people living with dementia.

All three homes are supported by a team of staff with a range of skills and experiences. This includes the management team, care staff, activities , maintenance staff, cooks and domestics. The skills of individuals are utilised across all of the homes to ensure all residents are able to benefit. For example, we have members of staff who has undertaken training in massage therapy. This is now offered to residents in all three homes. Staff will also work across the three homes where required to provide additional support or to cover holiday or sickness.

Doveleigh Care Ltd’s achievements continue to be recognised on both a national and regional level. At the 2017 National Care Awards, Doveleigh Care Ltd won both the Care Home Group of the Year category and the prestigious National Care Home of the Year award, which was won by Arcot House in Sidmouth. At the most recent Regional Great British Care Awards, Doveleigh Care Ltd won the Care Employer of the Year Award and one of our managers, Samantha Evens, won the Registered Manager of the Year Award. In the upcoming Outstanding Care Awards for Devon and Cornwall, the company has finalists in the Care Home of the Year, Care Home Manager of the Year, Health Care Assistant of the Year and Outstanding Contribution to Health and Social Care categories. Finally, for the fourth consecutive year, Doveleigh Care Ltd has been recognised as one of the top twenty care home groups in the whole country.

These awards have been won through the continued efforts and dedication of our wonderful, hard working staff team. We are always looking for caring individuals to enhance our team at every level even further. If you think you are one of these people, why not give us a call or drop us an email?
