Providing specialist support for individuals living with mental health problems such as Korsakoff’s syndrome and the effects of Alcohol Related Brain Damage.
These large twin Victorian houses are located above the harbour in Torquay and boast spectacular views across Torbay. The tranquil hill top setting is within walking distance of the town centre and beach.
The facilities at Vane Hill are provided with the intention of enabling independence. Our residents are encouraged to help prepare home cooked meals within our kitchens. They use the freshest seasonal ingredients they’ve help to grow in the home’s vegetable allotments. Further life skills can be re-established in a variety of ways in our laundry, gardens and around the home.
Our residents very much enjoy socialising and interacting with one another.
They have the option to partake in daily activities or use facilities within our games rooms, such as the pool table, books, magazines and computers with internet access.
Outside, the gardens and patio are regularly enjoyed throughout the year and provide a quiet, relaxing environment and an ideal space to enjoy popular summer barbecues.
The home also benefits from its own minibus. Regular trips and twice yearly holidays are events our residents really look forward to and love. We take full advantage of Dartmoor and the Devon coast being so close, for treks and adventures in the open air.
Vane Hill is a special place to stay and make progress; developing basic life skills which help an individual establish independence.
Our home may well be a care home but first and foremost it is our residents’ home.
