Walmer House Closure

We regret having to close the Walmer House Community and appreciate the deep concern that this will cause residents, their families, and the staff. We will be working closely with Torbay council, Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust and relatives to ensure that all the 12 current residents will be found appropriate alternative accommodation. Staff will enter a redundancy process or be offered alternative employment in our other homes.

This difficult decision was taken only after long and careful consideration, and we have sought to minimise its impact on all concerned. The home has served the local community for many decades, but the small number of residents and increasing costs over many years have caused us reluctantly to take this step.

We shall be keeping in close contact with all those affected by the closure.
