dove cottage guests families and carers

Each guest that comes to us can benefit from nursing care and advice, wellbeing activities such as complementary therapies, chaplaincy team support, games, crafts, refreshments and a home-cooked lunch. We also provide help for our guests’ support network, as well as those in the local community who are looking for information. We run Family Support Groups (carers’ lunch) for people to get advice and swap helpful tips, and regular dementia groups. We also offer bereavement support and wheelchair loan.

Dove is often my only trip out during the week. I really appreciate the social interaction and support, both from the staff and the amazing, inspiring people around me. I know that my husband also enjoys his day to himself knowing I’ll be well cared for.
