Where you’ll work

 

"A forever home in which residents can continue to call home regardless of their needs changing, Ivydene is very much part of the local community. Set in a quiet residential area of the historic mill town of Ivybridge in Devon, our care home provides residential care, nursing care, dementia care, palliative care and respite care to residents. Every week children from Little Orchard Montessori Nurseries visit the home. Whether reading stories or doing arts and crafts with the residents, their visits are always a highlight. Ivydene’s residents, some of whom receive residential care, dementia care and others who have greater nursing needs, love their visits from students at Dame Hannah Rogers School in Ivybridge.
