Devon Nursing Home

Our Devon Nursing Home, Hatherleigh, is a specialist dementia nursing and residential care provider close to the Central Devon town of Okehampton, has been commended by local MP Mel Stride for creating their own solution to the care funding crisis.

The group that supports the home, Evolve Care Group, have set up a subsidy fund of £100,000 in order to help local people afford the care they need and deserve.

Mel heard all about this new fund on his recent visit to the nursing home, when he also got a chance to meet lots of family members living there and learn about the unique Household Model of Care that is implemented at Hatherleigh Nursing Home.

Mel told us: “It was lovely to be able to meet some of the people living at Hatherleigh Nursing Home and I’ve heard nothing but great things from them, about their life there. The current crisis in funding for social care is a matter that urgently needs addressing and it’s brilliant to see that the team at Hatherleigh are doing their bit to help ease the costs of care.”

Hatherleigh Nursing Home’s Home Manager Lorna Hunter commented that: “We all enjoyed welcoming Mel to our home and telling him more about the care we provide. Our Household Model of Care means that we can support individuals to continue living their life with as much dignity, independence and happiness as possible. We truly are a family and if you come and live with us, this should genuinely feel like your home.”
