Owner's description

“Dowty House is a home for the elderly that has been in existence since 1957. The residents who live at the home enjoy the central location, being within walking distance of local parks and the town's facilities.

The house has a comfortable lounge and light-filled conservatory where residents can enjoy afternoon tea, eat meals or simply relax. The conservatory looks on to the award-winning garden with its raised beds, water feature, vegetable plot and gazebo. The looped never-ending path and specially-made Dowty House bus stop allow residents with dementia to use the garden with purpose while those who simply want to take it easy can relax in quiet contemplation. Residents help to take care of the vegetable plot and help to ensure that the home’s three chickens, which were all hatched on site, are kept fed and watered”

Comments about Dowty House

10/10 for Dowty. They found room for my terminally ill father at short notice and gave him the most amazing care until he passed away 2 months later. Cannot praise the staff highly enough. Their compassion and support was simply amazing.04/07/2013GILLIAN (relative of someone who lives/lived here)reply
