Chelfham House is a residential care home providing specialist dementia care for older people. The home is quietly situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, enjoying superb views and yet conveniently only a few minutes drive of Barnstaple town centre.

Person-centred care is provided in a safe and homely atmosphere, whilst respecting an individual's privacy, dignity and independence at all times. Highly skilled staff are on call 24 hours a day to provide all necessary personal care, and a dedicated activities coordinator is always busy organising daily activities and regular trips out.

The accommodation designed to make residents feel comfortable in their surroundings. The home actively encourages residents to decorate their room with their own belongings to promote a sense of familiarity. There is a selection of tastefully decorated bedrooms, most are en-suite, all have nurse call, TV and telephone points.

There is a choice of four lounges and two dining rooms for residents to use, offering a relaxed and homely environment in which to enjoy mealtimes, watch television, listen to music or to receive visitors. There is a four person shaft lift which serves all floors, and the home now boasts its very own hairdressing salon, which is available for residents to visit every day.

The cuisine at Chelfham House is all locally sourced and freshly prepared each day. The chef provides a varied and balanced menu and happily caters for special diets and preferences, where requested. Fresh fruit and vegetables from our local suppliers are offered daily.

Chelfham House has an 'open door' policy with regard to visitors, and feel strongly that this forms an important part of the homely atmosphere.
