Are you worried about someone who lives with Dementia?
You are most likely overwhelmed, upset, worried about your parent, relative or friend and could be agonising about what to do.
Look no further. We are a residence care home and day centre for dementia.
We have over 30 years of experience as a care home for Residents who live with dementia and we consistently meet the CQC standards in our inspections.
We serve the local areas of Kingston, New Malden, Richmond, Sutton, Wimbledon and Worcester Park in Surrey.
As we are a dementia specialist care home located within convenient access to London, Greater London and the M25, we find that families seek us out from further afield. We are often approached when their relative has been asked to move from another home. Usually it is because the dementia has progressed and the care home cannot cope with the confounding behaviours.
We are proud of our success at cracking the code of dementia and improving the daily lives of people living with this illness. We interpret the confounding behaviours associated with dementia and the transition to moments of joy.
We welcome Residents and Day Guests. We have a day guest programme for those families who are not quite ready to make the transition to a residential program.
We hope that the information on our website will be helpful and you will come and visit us to meet our caring staff, experience our warm ambience and find out more about life at the Devonshire.

FREE ZOOM SINGING GROUP AND COFFEE MORNING
In line with the government guidelines on Covid-19, we regretfully have had to suspend our in person free singing
Join us on Zoom, Wednesdays, 10.30am - 12.30pm
Please call Sandra on 020 8949 0818 for the Zoom link and details.
Why a singing group?
Neuroscience has shown that singing in a group is like a super-drug! Singing helps the brain release endorphins and oxytocin which make us feel healthier and happier. When we are singing in a group our hearts all magically start beating together. You do not need to be able to hold a note – just come and join in the fun.
