A beautiful care home near Plymouth, specialising in dementia care.
Plymbridge is an impressive building with beautiful, award-winning grounds. Located in an attractive residential area of the village Plympton, local shops are within walking distance and there is easy access to Plymouth.
A former vicarage, we have carried out a number of improvements over the years to create a beautiful, spacious home. Registered to accommodate 40 people, our care home supports individuals living with dementia to live a full and interesting life in a safe environment.
Life at Plymbridge care home
There is plenty of space at Plymbridge, with several communal rooms to choose from depending on what you want to do. The quiet lounge is perfect for reading a book or doing a puzzle, while the television lounge is often used for our organised activities, such as our popular quizzes or discussion groups. The conservatory has lots of lovely light, making it ideal for pastimes such as painting and knitting, as well as being a great space for welcoming entertainers and other visitors.
Our large dining room allows for sociable mealtimes, with the opportunity to enjoy delicious homecooked meals in a relaxing environment.
A varied activities programme
Our activity co-ordinators ensure there is always lots to do. A busy programme offers something for everybody, including arts and crafts, cookery, gardening and more. We particularly love music and have regular afternoons with visiting musicians, which often result in everybody singing along. We also incorporate music into our exercise mornings, which can be lively with old songs to move around to.
Dementia care at Plymbridge
All of our staff receive comprehensive dementia care training, with an emphasis on supporting people as individuals, recognising emotional needs and how to communicate well.
Many of our private bedrooms have an ensuite WC and hand basin, while our communal bathrooms offer a choice of bathing facilities, with state of the art specialist baths and showers. Bring your own keepsakes such as photographs and pictures to make your room feel like home.
We are very lucky to have extensive grounds, with lawns and mature trees and shrubs. A seated area at the back of the home surrounded by flowers makes a wonderful spot to while away a sunny afternoon. We also have a large patio area, where you can enjoy dinner, help out with some gardening or simply sitting outdoors. We are proud to have won many Plymouth in Bloom awards over the years.
