Range of Needs


We care for adults with differing needs ranging from adults with complex healthcare needs to adults whose primary conditions are related to ageing.

Doves Nest has 40 places for adults with differing care needs ranging from complex healthcare needs to conditions that are related to ageing. We cater for both female and male residents.

We have 14 specially equipped rooms that are suitable for the needs of adults with physical disabilities/complex healthcare needs who require comprehensive medical, physical and mental health support (exclusive of challenging behaviour) and rehabilitation after hospital discharge or support to prevent hospital admission.

The accommodation has been specifically designed to provide shared living space that is flexible to enable residents to choose the range and diversity of their social interaction.

We have successfully cared for people with acquired brain injury; spinal cord injury; cerebral palsy; advanced medical conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, and Motor Neurone Disease (MND); terminal conditions such as cancer and renal failure, and; conditions that require ventilation systems. We also offer transitional care which is a step down from hospital to home.

Types of care

We have a dedicated care team that has the skills and experience to deliver a wide range of services. The types of care we provide are summarised below:

Residential care:

For those who are finding it increasingly difficult to cope at home, we provide accommodation, meals, personal care and access to an active social community.

Nursing care:

For those who require frequent, specialised nursing care, we have a care team that will offer the 24-hour personal support and accommodation of residential care, plus the benefit of specialist nursing care.

Complex healthcare:

For those who requires comprehensive medical, physical and mental health support (exclusive of challenging behaviour), such as Multiple Sclerosis, Acquired Brain Injury, PVS, and Coronary Care etc., and rehabilitation after hospital discharge or support to prevent hospital admission, we have specially equipped rooms and an experienced and skilled care team to enable us to provide the high level of care required.

Short stay care:

Short stay care allows carers the time to recharge their batteries while offering their loved ones the reassurance of 24-hour care. Where we can we offer short stay residential or nursing care, however our ability to offer short stay care depends on room availability.

Palliative care:

Palliative care (also known as End of Life Care) is the care of people with life limiting illnesses where recovery is not expected. We understand how very difficult and emotional these situations are and we recognise the psychological, social and spiritual needs of an individual and focus on the care delivered to ensure their wishes and preferences are addressed.
