Dewdown aims to preserve, as far as possible, each resident’s personal independence, interests and pattern of life.

It is a purpose built home providing accommodation for older people. It was opened in 1981 and replaced an older home on the same site. In March 2013 it was voted ‘Best Home of the Year’ by an independent panel for The Salvation Army Social Services. The home is situated on the sea front and has some commanding views over the Severn Estuary to South Wales.

Situated about half a mile from the town centre, during the summer months there is a land train that operates along the promenade to the pier. From there all amenities are just a short walk away. There is a hairdresser that visits the home twice a week and the enclosed patio provides a haven even on the chilliest days.

Dewdown House is a Christian establishment in which daily prayers and a Sunday service are held. A visiting Anglican rector celebrates Holy Communion once a month and arrangements can be made for those of other denominations.

Dewdown House

The care provided to my Mother was outstanding. The facilities available were of high quality. The care shown was well above that which one would expect. My Mother came to view the home as her family - the love and care shown to her was outstanding as was the Christian ethos that prevailed throughout. This was a Salvation Army establishment in which the ethos of Christian love and care ran though everything in a manner appropriate to those of faith as well as those residents who possess no belief. Staff and residents seem genuinely happy.
