Myself and sister recently on the off chance turned up at Dove Court to view potential future care for our elderly father. The girls where very welcoming and accomadating, very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The home looked lovely and clean, all the people looked happy and friendly, enjoying coffee in the conservatory with superb views over Seaton and Axmouth, whilst others were getting on the bus to go to the seaside. Very impressed with what we saw and defiantly looking further into care and support from them. 10/10 to the team.

Every week the happy staff make the day a lot easier and more enjoyable when I visit. My aunt has taken quite a while to adjust to new surroundings and loss of independence, but has been shown care and concern each day despite her trials and tribulations! To know she is kept warm, secure and well tended to is a great worry off our minds. The lunches we can share with new found friends are a treat and the general feeling of the home is relaxed, bright, friendly but dignified. I am delighted to have found and chosen this home, having refused many others.

I am lucky to have a son who is reasonably healthy and he comes over takes me out occasionally. So upset I have not partaken in any other outings. Pleasant staff, lovely surroundings in a nice conservatory to sit in for leisure.

Myself and partner had a look around Dove Court as well as a few other local homes for a place for my mother-in-law in the near future. The staff couldn't be more welcoming or friendly if they tried. They put my fears at ease straight away and answered all my questions. The home is lovely and clean, plenty of staff interaction and activities going on, and the overall atmosphere was warm and friendly. Definitely a place like home.

I have been a resident here for 4 years now and I don't want to leave here ever. You could not have better staff, nicer residents, everyone is so nice. All the staff appreciate our needs, we are very lucky. My family also enjoy coming here as everyone is so friendly, I could not wish for a nicer place to spend my time now. We have a nice room, I don't think we could get better.

My friend cannot praise the staff at this home enough. He says it is a special place to live. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they are always given lots of choices. I visited recently on Bonfire night where we were all offered a buffet supper and then a superb firework display. The home was full of friendly staff catering to all of our needs. Plenty of hot drinks and food offered to everyone present, a real homely atmosphere.

My friend and neighbour is being wonderfully looked after. Her physical and mental health has improved so much since she became a resident at Dove Court. All the staff are very kind, helpful and professional. All Pam's care is totally person centred, she enjoys the outings but her wishes are respected if she doesn't want to do something.
