Meet the Manager Sam Vincent
Thank you for your loving care of my Aunt, for heading such a hardworking, caring team and re-assuring the family that she was in the right place. The way she responded to each of you when I was there showed exactly how she had been treated. Her smile when any help was given, her cheek or laugh when being teased, the way she spoke about you, especially a comment overheard by me … ‘I love you’ – that said it all..
Walmer House has 17 rooms, 15 of them with en-suite facilities.
Built in the latter half of the 19th century, Walmer House was transferred to the Christian Alliance for Women & Girls (as Keychange was then known) in the 1920s and thus has belonged to the charity the longest of all our properties. Before becoming a care home, Walmer House was used as a guest house and holiday home.
Walmer House is built on one of Torquay’s 7 hills and commands impressive vistas of the bay from its high vantage point. Sea views are available from some of the rooms. Local taxi drivers know it as “the place where there are pineapples on the gate posts”. The entrance hall has the commanding feature of a wide and winding staircase to the upper floors, and both hall and staircase benefit from new carpets. Other recent refurbishments and developments include state-of-the-art assisted bathing facilities and associated improvements.
The garden has been one of the home’s attractive features for many years with beautiful flower beds and large, gently sloping lawns. The summer house completes the outside amenities.
