The Summerhouse @The Mede
The Summerhouse @ The Mede offers specialised one-to-one short-term respite in a beautiful setting. This allows carers to have a proper break while they can be confident their loved one is enjoying a holiday experience.
Although slightly smaller than No.7 and Seaward House, The Summerhouse has all the charm and space to enjoy a holiday in a home away from home. Sitting in the sitting room you can enjoy the estuary and countryside views or wander into the garden to sit in the summerhouse.
Although there is no cure for memory loss, deterioration can be slowed down through the use of trusted methods.
Activity sessions at Nelson Close are run by Occupational Therapists and volunteers with a high staff ratio. There is usually a lack of facilities for people when they are first diagnosed, which is exactly the time when activity and stimulation is required. Our main priority is to treat the members with dignity and tailor the sessions to their individual requirements. This includes visits to our beach hut, our allotment, local farms and sites of interests. We enjoy regular local visitors who share their talents to entertain or even teach the members new skills. For example our celebrity chef Orlando, a bagpiper and the owner of a local cheese shop to name a few!

The Summerhouse @The Mede is situated with views of the countryside and estuary in Topsham, Devon.
Rates & info
We have very good relationships with local carers so we can tailor the needs of your loved one.
If you live locally or not too far away we can meet several times before the holiday to make sure the transition from home to holiday home is a smooth one. Meeting the carer and getting to know the property before can help enormously for you and everyone benefits from finding out the likes, dislikes and sort of activities the guest enjoys.
Prices are tailored to the needs of the guest.
