he Firs stands in 1.5 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds in a secluded and quite area yet within walking distance of the town of Budleigh Salterton with its seafront and cliffs. We are proud of our excellent reputation achieved through the highest standards of residential care and close attention to the social and personal needs of the residents.

As an established care home our staff have many years of experience in caring and providing a safe and comfortable home in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

All bedrooms are spacious and well equipped and have been designed to make sure the service user feels at home in the warm and comfortable settings. Residents are encouraged to bring personal items with them to promote an atmosphere of familiarity.

We understand that choosing the right care home is a big decision and one that should be made with assistance from relatives and loved-ones. We encourage prospective residents and family members to assist in visits to ensure they feel comfortable in our home.

At The Firs, we firmly believe that the body and the mind are very closely linked and that keeping the body active, even for those who are perhaps less agile than they once were, can also do wonders for their state of mind. As such, we have an Activities Co-Ordinator on the team, whose role it is to run a programme of pastimes to stimulate both body and mind.

Please give us a call to discuss how we can help support you or your loved one at our care home in Knowle, we look forward to welcoming you to The Firs soon.
