Are you worried about someone who lives with Dementia?
You are most likely overwhelmed, upset, worried about your parent, relative or friend and could be agonising about what to do.
Look no further. We have over 30 years of experience in caring for our Residents who live with dementia and consistently meet the CQC standards in our inspections.
Our unique care model, developed over the years, enables and supports our caring staff to weave thoughtful and subtle interventions and therapies into the daily life of our Residents, so that each day is meaningful. We serve the local areas of Kingston, New Malden, Richmond, Wimbledon and Worcester Park in Surrey.
We have a day guest programme for those families who are not quite ready to make the transition and a residential program.
We hope that the information on our website will be helpful and that you will come and visit us, meet our caring staff, find out more about life at the Devonshire and experience our warm ambiance.
Our Dementia Specialist Care
Our unique model is a tribute to all the Residents we have had the privilege to care for – they have been our best teachers!
Life at the Devonshire
Our focus is on the person — our Resident ‒ their feelings, wishes, likes and dislikes, their unique life experiences and interests, and how they would like to spend the day.
Our Staff and Management
We believe that a home is only as good as the staff who work in it.
Our fees reflect each Resident’s stage of dementia and the care needs required to ensure he or she is safe, comfortable and content.
Residents are not restricted to one area of their home, they are free to walk and explore throughout the building and in the safe, enclosed, back patio garden.
Helping you Decide
Selecting a home for you or your loved one is a very difficult decision and, to complicate matters, many people are not sure how to evaluate whether a home will meet their specific needs. To assist you with your decision, we have prepared this guide to use while visiting various homes.
Free Singing group and coffee morning
In line with the government guidelines on COVID-19, we regretfully have to suspend our singing group temporarily.
Every Wednesday, 10.30am - 12.30pm
Please bring your loved one and join us for a free singing group and coffee morning held every Wednesday between 10.30am and 12.30pm. It is just a social occasion enabling carers and people living with dementia to get out in a safe environment and make some new friends.
Why a singing group?
Neuroscience has shown that singing in a group is like a super-drug! Singing helps the brain release endorphins and oxytocin which make us feel healthier and happier. When we are singing in a group our hearts all magically start beating together. You do not need to be able to hold a note – just come and join in the fun.
