It is a purpose built home providing accommodation for older people. It was opened in 1981 and replaced an older home on the same site. In March 2013 it was voted ‘Best Home of the Year’ by an independent panel for The Salvation Army Social Services. The home is situated on the sea front and has some commanding views over the Severn Estuary to South Wales.

Life at Dewdown

Situated about half a mile from the town centre, during the summer months there is a land train that operates along the promenade to the pier. From there all amenities are just a short walk away. There is a hairdresser that visits the home twice a week and the enclosed patio provides a haven even on the chilliest days. There are 40 single rooms, 10 of which have en-suites.

Dewdown House is a Christian establishment in which daily prayers and a Sunday service are held. A visiting Anglican rector celebrates Holy Communion once a month and arrangements can be made for those of other denominations.
