Welcome to Dovehaven Nursing Home

Dovehaven Nursing Home provides an excellent standard of nursing care for 34 residents.

Over 3 floors, all of which are accessible by lift, there is both a resident lounge, dining room and a conservatory. However, we perfectly understand that residents very often wish to spend their days in their private bedrooms, where everything for an enjoyable day, plus essential nursing care, is provided.

Bedrooms are tastefully decorated. Of course, we very much encourage our residents to personalise their own bedrooms to ensure that it feel 'just like home'. Those extra touches of personal items and ornaments, will make all of the difference

Our Chef provides a wonderful dining service, receiving many compliments, making mealtimes a real standout feature of this home. Residents choose their meals from a varied daily menu. We ensure that all dietary requirements and resident preferences are accommodated.

Residents spend their days as they wish, however there are activities available, either on a group or individual basis. Our dedicated activity coordinator ensures there is a varied programme of hobby and special interest activities for residents to enjoy. Special events, holidays and birthdays are always celebrated, with a cake and candles of course!

Within the conservatory, and easily accessible, is a specially constructed 'visitor pod', to facilitate safe family visiting, whatever the current guidelines might be.

Dovecote Nursing Home, with its close neighbour Dovecote Manor, enjoy the most expansive lawns and gardens. Residents have the opportunity to enjoy the gardens or sit in the conservatory and admire the view!

Dovehaven Nursing Home provides 24 hour bespoke nursing care, delivering professional and compassionate care to residents with significant and complex health conditions.

The health, well-being and happiness of our ‘family’ of residents, is always our number one priority. Every resident is unique with individual nursing care requirements and individual care plans are written from medical and assessment information and the help of residents and their loved ones. These bespoke care plans ensure we maximise choice, independence and the comfort of our residents

Our nurses work very closely with other external healthcare professionals, to ensure that the broadest range of expertise is available to support all nursing care needs.

The nursing respite care we provide is available following discharge from a hospital stay or alternatively for those who receive nursing care in their own home. We are very happy to discuss your requirements for a respite stay, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your nursing needs.

Aside from nursing care, there is a varied and enjoyable activity programme, making every day different and very importantly, to support our residents wellbeing. Residents choose how they wish to spend their days, however, residents are encouraged to socialise and we ensure there are opportunities for them to be with others.

All Dovehaven care homes use 'Oomph! On demand' to support resident exercise, hobbies, themed days and personal interests. Themed days and lunches are very popular with residents and the home always recognises national celebrations and events.

Our nursing team and care team, is led by a Home Manager Kevin Jolley, who is a very experienced nurse. All are committed to ensuring residents receive the highest standard of nursing care and are treated with dignity at all times.

The Chef and the whole kitchen team have a real passion for creating a wonderful menu and serving meals to the very highest of standards. The number of compliments received in this kitchen is amazing! The Chef and his team are driven by the passion to deliver appropriate freshly cooked meals and pleasing residents with the things they just love to eat!

Dovehaven have a robust induction and ongoing training for all team members to ensure that they have all of the skills and knowledge they need to provide expert nursing care, with confidence. Of course, our Home Manager and our Deputy Manager are always on hand to give support and advice to team members and family members alike.

Our quailed nurses and well trained care team are hand to help support and care for our residents in a manner that is both professional and unobtrusive, promoting independence as well as a sense of well-being and security.

Our dedicated Activity Co-ordinator offers a full activity programme, as well as, one to one time for those residents who prefer to spend time in their rooms or are unable to join with others in the lounge.

The standard of the cuisine at Dovehaven Nursing Home is a standout feature of the home. Our chef receives many compliments!

Our experienced Head Chef ensures all meals are perfectly cooked with fresh, locally sourced seasonal ingredients for a menu which is varied, tempting and reflects resident choices and preferences.

Furthermore, we pride ourselves on ensuring that our menu choices are available, in the most appropriately palatable way, for all nursing needs. Our meal choices are sure to tempt even the smallest appetite, so that we can be sure nutritional needs can be met for every resident.

Of course, there is a choice of refreshments available to residents, at all times. It is as important for our residents who require nursing care, to drink enough fluid as well as to eat well.

Refreshments, afternoon tea, fruit, snacks and suppers are freely available for all to enjoy.

What people say

I have spent two months in this carehome and the care I have received is very satisfactory. I would like to thanks all the team in the home for their hard and dedicated work.

Randle H (Resident)

We chose Dovehaven Nursing Home for Dad because the staff were so welcoming. The care that the manager and her staff give us was second to none as they treat the residents like their own family. I would also like to point out the amazing job the cleaning staff do as his home is spotless and always smells fresh and clean.

Carey P (Daughter of Resident)

In 2020 I stayed at Dovehaven Nursing Home and I cannot speak highly enough of the carers. They are all gentle, they treat you as an individual and nothing is too much trouble.

Ann D (Resident)

At Dovehaven Nursing Home, the food is excellent, particularly lunch which is always a cooked meal and in my opinion, is restaurant quality. The rooms are cleaned every day and kept immaculate.
