Our family caring for your family

Our family caring for your family

Within the Dovehaven family of care homes, not only do we offer excellent standards of care and attention to our residents and the best of hospitality, but we take pride to ensure we go the extra mile to meet our residents needs and exceed their expectations.

Our homes are 'homely; comfortable, safe and welcoming, some in large beautifully built buildings and other in quaint countryside locations, but all have the same warm atmosphere you would expect to feel when being 'at home'.

Our residents receive care from kind and compassionate team members, who we encourage and recognise for going above and beyond. Our team members are the ones who ensure that residents feel comfortable and well cared for. They form the bonds which connect with both residents and their families and ensure that the care delivered is personalised, appropriate and supports our residents to be the best that they can be, everyday.

Life is for living

Life is for living

Our homes offer our residents a lifestyle they can enjoy to the fullest.

Being energetic in our approach to new technology ensures Dovehaven residents have their lives enhanced, enjoy increased independence and bring even more fun into their lives!

Partnering with ‘Oomph On Demand’, via their online tv channel, ensures that daily resident activities are varied and individualised, trying new things and continuing a lifetime of hobbies and interests.

The use of iPads in our homes has opened up the world of digital technology to residents who are discovering the world of YouTube and beyond. A heightened focus of needing to be connected to family members, has been possible due to the availability of such technology in our homes. We also encourage our residents' loved ones to join our care home's private online community pages, so they are able to feel connected even when they can not be there in person.

The provision of excellent care goes hand in hand with the introduction of smart digital technology. The introduction of electronic care planning tools ensures residents care can be reviewed and care further personalised at the touch of a button. This investment is both necessary and greatly enhances the work of our care teams and their care of our residents.

Dovehaven commitment to the future

Dovehaven commitment to the future

At Dovehaven, our long-term commitment to our care homes runs deep, and we have made it a priority to ensure the sustainability of our business for years to come. What sets us apart is our unique approach to environmental responsibility—we embraced a green strategy long before it became a global priority.

To offset our carbon footprint, we have partnered with 'green' energy experts who guide us in adopting current best practices. One significant step we have taken is the installation of solar panels on the roofs of all our homes. By harnessing the power of the sun, we are able to minimize our reliance on conventional fossil-based fuels. We take great pride in having been recognized for our efforts, winning the 2019 Energy Efficiency Award in the 'Renewable Heat Installer' category and receiving commendation in the 'Best Large Scale Project' category.
