Welcome to The Seaton
The Seaton care home is an elegant Georgian building which is just a stone’s throw from the pedestrianised town centre and seafront of this genteel East Devon town.
The home provides a high standard of general nursing, dementia and residential care, including respite and rehabilitation, both for older people and younger adults with debilitating conditions.
No place like home
The atmosphere of the home is that of a snug family home, with comfortable bedrooms and cosy corners.
The Seaton two lounges, one with a relaxing coffee area, a central dining room and a conservatory leading onto an attractive decked area, which is used extensively in the warmer months to host parties and other outdoor events.
Food is important to us at The Seaton, and we pride ourselves on our menus, with wholesome and appetising dishes lovingly prepared by our resident chef.
The Seaton for over 2 years now.
The staff take good care of Mum helping her with her every day needs. They answer any questions I have regarding her needs. Before lockdown, I enjoyed meals with Mum which I can highly recommend. Nothing seems to be to much trouble for the staff.''
at the Seaton for the care and kindness they gave to my twin sister during the last two months of her life. Thanks also for looking after me and my daughter when we came to visit. Someone always helped me with the lifts as I can't manage stairs and the cup of tea and biscuits were always gratefully received! It has been a comfort to know that she was so well-liked and cared for, even though she was not there for long.''
So much to do
We like everyone living with us to have the chance to look and feel good – and so we have regular visits from a hairdresser, aromatherapist and chiropodist.
There is always plenty going on – from craft activities, music and baking to regular outings – either to take in the sea air or to venture further afield in the Southern Healthcare minibus.
We are very pleased to have been awarded the Silver Level in our recent revalidation of the Eden Alternative.
This was achieved through interviews with a selection of team members, residents and relatives, surveys, audits and photo-based evidence
In their summary, the validators said: “There was lots of evidence showing positive practice and that Eden had made a change to the way in which care is provided. Many of the staff talked passionately about working at The Seaton, and there seemed a good connection between the various staff groups who were interviewed.
It is acknowledged that the past two years have been significantly impacted by COVID and therefore any engagement has been severely restricted because of this. Eden principles seem to have been generally embraced throughout the home. The registered manager told us that she embraced and encouraged Eden philosophy. Many of the staff and residents described The Seaton as being like ‘one big family’, where there was a lot of focus on building relationships with people. Overall, The Seaton has started to embed the principles of Eden into its day-to-day culture and has plans in place for this to continue and improve.”

THE SEATON NURSING HOME
“We like to be sure that everyone living, working, and visiting us has the same great experience. Fun is an integral part of each day and variety is a driver.”
At the heart of the community
We take immense pride in being an essential part of life in the close-knit community of Seaton.
Families and friends of current and former residents play a key role in this – and we encourage them to think of the Seaton as being a home from home.
We aim to play a full role in the life of the community – and we respect our neighbours.
One example of this is Bonfire Night where we have a quiet celebration rather than a firework display. This is to protect residents who may still be traumatized from their time serving their county in the armed forces. We are also mindful of the local cats and dogs who may be upset by the bangs and flashes.
But we always look forward to welcoming people in – whether this is to enjoy a vintage afternoon tea, or a Christmas fair.
