Exmouth House Care Home - rated 'Outstanding' by CQC
Exmouth House is located at the top of Long Causeway, which was at one time the only road in and out of the town. Initially a large family house with stables, it was then converted into a private school before becoming a residential care home in the 1980s. It has since evolved into the home it is today, one specialising in dementia care but also offering day care and respite care.

Why choose us
Making the decision to transfer a loved one with dementia from your own care to that of a professional is never an easy one. At Amica Care, we understand the conflict of emotions that you may experience during this time and are committed to supporting families through the transition.
With specialist staff trained in the complex requirements of dementia care, you can have peace of mind that your relative will be cared for with dignity and respect. We place great emphasis on retaining the independence of our residents and enhancing their time with valuable socialisation and a range of interactive activities.
We encourage regular visits from friends and family which can be enjoyed in the privacy of your loved one’s bedroom or our separate lounge or peaceful garden. With wonderful facilities, a dedicated activities team and 24-hour personalised care – your relative will benefit not only from the professional care that they require but also the pleasure that comes with regular stimulation. Discover more about our dementia care service here.
For carers in need of respite, we also offer short term stays from one to six weeks. Respite care can be a valuable experience for both you and your relative – allowing carers time to recoup energy or make necessary adaptions to the home while your loved one enjoys a stimulating change of scenery. Discover more about respite care here.
At Exmouth House we also offer a day care service, enabling carers to catch up on daily errands or complete tasks that may not be possible with an elderly or disabled relative at home.
