The Aim of our Care
Dementia can be very frightening for both the person affected and their loved ones. At Highlands, we recognise and respect this. Our aim is to provide our residents with high quality, person-centred care. Our approach aims to see residents with dementia as individuals, rather than focusing on their illness or lost abilities. We take into account each individual’s unique qualities, abilities, interests, preferences and needs. And our main priority is treating residents with dignity and respect.
The Care We Offer
We pride ourselves on offering a highly specialist care service for those with dementia and related illness. We offer this service with a personal touch. We are pleased to accept residents over the age of 55, for long term, short term, convalescence, respite and holiday stays.
Highlands is a spacious, detached, Grade 2 listed Georgian house with a large enclosed, mature, rear garden in St. Leonard’s Road, Exeter. There is a range of shops in Magdalen Road known as “The Village”. There is a frequent bus service which passes through St. Leonard’s Road to service the Royal Devon& Exeter Hospital and links up with the Bus and Rail Stations. There are various Doctor's Surgeries nearby and easy access to the CoE St. Leonard’s Church or other religious churches such as the Roman Catholic Church in South Street or The Mint Methodist Church in Fore Street, Exeter.
The home provides accommodation for up to 26 residents. Some rooms have en-suite facilities and the home has a full passenger lift and wheelchair access throughout.
