Donnington House Care Home is one of a group of six Residential Care Homes owned and operated by the Stonehaven (Healthcare) Group in Devon and Cornwall. As with all homes in the group each Resident enjoys a very high standard of care in a 'home and family' focused environment.

Donnington House offers 25 bedrooms (mostly single) where elderly people, elderly people with physical disability and elderly people with dementia, are expertly cared for.

There is a dedicated and highly trained Care Team whose compassion and skill make Donnington House a real HOME where frequent recommendation and positive feedback are regularly enjoyed.

Carers understand that for many the prospect of a move to a Residential Home can be a daunting one. To help dispel any concerns, carers offer free a 'Familiarisation Day' to prospective residents (so long as capacity allows) - where a prospective resident may spend a day at the home with a family member or friend.

It is the desire to ensure that all who come into contact with Donnington House leave with an overwhelmingly positive impression of the home.

Come along and see for yourselves. You will always be most welcome.

Without exception the staff are all friendly, helpful and polite. They are really genuinely kind. The decor includes interesting objects e.g amonite fossils, shells, model boats. There is a bird feeder in the garden and from the windows, beautiful views across Bideford Bay.

Permanent staff no agency staffing, therefore continuity of caring, dedicated staff and management. Small enough to feel part of a family, convenient for the bus stop and car parking, near to shops and the beach. Homely, nicely presented happy atmosphere at all times of the day.

Donnington House Care Home

My Mum moved into residential care at Donnington House in December 2012 after losing her husband (my father). She has mild dementia and does feel she is able to care for herself. We know that she is unable to do this so residential care is a must. Although Mum is unhappy at leaving her home she has nothing but praise for for the care she receives. The staff and management team are friendly and helpful. They do all they can to make Mum and all the family comfortable.
