Very sadly, my dear Husband has just passed away very suddenly after living at Doneraile for two years. My consolation at this sad time is that, during the entire time he was at Doneraile, Mr & Mrs Jones and all the staff gave him wonderful care, kindness & respect. My Husband had family visitors every day, so we spent many many hours there where we always secured a wonderful welcome and we know that a wonderful atmosphere radiates at Doneraile. Thank you all.

My father went to the care home initially for a weeks respite care, and then again as a permanent residence two weeks later. He was very happy there and was very well looked after, in a lovely room. He got on very well with the other residents. We were also able to have many photographs displayed on the wall of his bedroom. We visited him on a weekly basis, and were always welcomed with tea and biscuits by the staff. We would highly recommend this home to anyone who asked us.

The home offers a very friendly, warm atmosphere. The staff are extremely polite, friendly and helpful.

My father would rather not be in a care home at all, but since needs must, Doneraile is the best place to be! It is a beautiful old house situated in a quiet and leafy part of town and he has a ground floor room with French windows onto a patio. The level of care he receives from Karen and her team is second to none. As a healthcare worker myself I recognise dedication when I see it! manners, politeness and respect matter to my dad, he is afforded it all here.

Doneraile Residential Care Home

My mother was a resident at the above residential home for just over 2 years until she passed away in August 2013. During the period she was there the family found the quality of care was of a very high standard. All of the management and staff had a genuine concern for the welfare of all of the residents and were particularly compassionate towards my mother in the last few weeks of her life. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending this home to any prospective residents looking for accommodation in the South Devon area.

Doneraile Residential Care Home

My Dad has been a resident in Doneraile since October. He is a young man at 60 to now need full time care. His type of Dementia is known as Picks. More commonly known as a type of Frontal Lobe Dementia, or Frontotemporal Dementia. I have to say that the Staff, Senior Healthcare Assistants and Management have been remarkable, with such thoughtfulness to him still wanting to be somewhat independent. After visiting numerous homes without anyone really caring for the man that is my Dad, we have found a loving home for him. It was the sincere loving warmth and kind compassion that helped him settle in so well. I really enjoy hanging out with my dad in his room because it is very homely. I would recommend Doneraile because they care very much. Everyone treats him with a very respectful attitude.

My father's care at Doneraile could not be bettered. Although his room is quite a small single he had French windows with a lovely outlook. The food was excellent and home cooked which he really enjoyed. The staff were exceptionally kind and thoughtful and his round the clock care during his final months was exemplary.
