Ropers Lane, Otterton, Budleigh Salterton EX9 7JF
The Old Vicarage Residential Home is a grade two listed Georgian country house, located in scenic village of Otterton, between Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth.
The home has been operating as a family-run care home for over 30 years, with an unrivalled reputation for providing high quality, compassionate care in a welcoming and family-friendly atmosphere.
The home offers both long-term residential care, short respite stays and post-operative care for older people. Residents are free to come and go as they please and for that reason, it is unable to provide the secure environment required for conditions such as dementia. All bedrooms have their own en-suite facilities and views over the gardens.
The home prides itself on delivering the highest standards of care to all residents in a relaxed and friendly way. The staff understand that it can be an unsettling decision to move into a new home, but they aim to support residents, family and friends throughout the transition and provide the highest possible quality of personalised care thereafter.
Retirement is a very individual situation and they build their approach to socialising and activities to suit the person, not the other way around. Some people chose to be active and join in all the excitement of activities programme and social events. Others request peace and quiet for rest and recuperation. There is an in-house enabling service provided, to help you continue to do the things you enjoy but may struggle with on your own, such as shopping or visiting friends.
