About Lindons Residential Care Home

Welcome to the Lindons residential care home in Newton Abbot Devon.

The care provided is designed to build on your own strengths and wishes, and constantly seeks to improve your quality of life whether you need just support with everyday tasks or 24 hour assistance and whether you decide to make the Lindons either your permanent home, or for a short period of convalescence, or just to have a break from your own home. You decide

Our Care Plan is formed on arrival along with an induction and introduction to the home. Residents and their family or representatives are invited to participate in developing care plans and attending any reviews held. Residents and their representative may see care plans at all reasonable times in arrangement with the Manager.

Once developed, the Care Plan will be reviewed regularly to ensure that it is meeting the resident's needs. Family and relatives will be encouraged to participate in residents' daily routine, as far as is practicable. They are always invited and encouraged to relay their thoughts and, if any, complaints.

Our Staff

We provide a personal & professional social care service in a well-maintained, homely environment. This is supported in no small way by our dedicated team which consists of our Registered Manager, Deputy Manager and senior carers / carers. We carefully recruit our staff and most have been with us for many years. All of our care staff have induction, foundation and supervised training. The majority of our staff have a minimum National Vocation Qualification of Level II in Care and the remainder will be working towards this as a minimum. We look for people who are caring, understanding and patient with a good sense of humour. We provide ongoing training and assessment to maintain exceptionally high standards of care. The Housekeeping department keeps our home clean and tidy, and our resident's with fresh laundry.


The Lindons provides en-suite single room accommodation and the facility for double rooms for couples or others who wish to share, for up to 25 residents.

All rooms exceed the national minimum standard for floor space and are furnished to a high standard. Specially adapted bathrooms, with special hoists are available depending on your personal needs.

An electronic Nurse Call system is fitted to all rooms and en-suites in the home to enable you to summon staff assistance whenever necessary.

There is also a brand new chair lift to serve the first floor for your convenience. Also, and very importantly, the whole home has a full fire detection and alarm system.

The accommodation at The Lindons is arranged on two floors in the main house, and on ground floor level in the attached purpose built bungalow. A comfortable, nicely furnished lounge and spacious conservatory leading onto one of the gardens are available for the residents.

These include Cards / Bingo / Board Games, Film & Video Shows, Musical Entertainment, Parties (Christmas / Easter / Birthday etc.), Minibus Outings & one-to-one activities.

We are committed to encouraging participation in recreational activities, however at all times it is the client’s decision whether or not they wish to participate.

Statement of Philosophy of Care:

  • Our aim is to provide a safe, comfortable and caring Home for all of our Residents. We strive to meet the individual needs of each Resident and aim to encourage them to retain as much independence as possible within the Home and local community.

    We recognise the importance for our Residents of retaining the closest possible links with family, friends and community.

    The Lindons places the rights of Residents, in particular those who are less able to represent themselves, at the forefront of our Philosophy of care. We seek to advance these rights in all aspects of our Home and in the service we provide.

    The details of our policy and procedure in respect of Resident’s rights are contained in our ‘Statement of Residents Rights’ which is part of our Statement of Purpose & Residents Guide.
