Life at Smallcombe House

Smallcombe House was opened in March 1992 and is owned and run by The Salvation Army. Admission is open to anyone irrespective of personal belief but the ethos of the home is Christian. Not all staff are practising Christians but Smallcombe House is run on Christian principles. Care is enhanced by an awareness that people should be regarded holistically which means physical spiritual and mental well being. The Home also has a Chaplain who is an ordained minister.

Smallcombe House is a purpose built home for 32 men and women aged 60 years and over. Smallcombe House is light and spacious, with plenty of choice between social areas and privacy. There is a comfortable lounge and a passenger lift to all floors. There are also 32 single rooms all with en-suites.

There is an activities co-ordinator who organises the weekly rota of events to take place including outings, crafts, quizzes, walks and shopping.

A Chiropodist visits the Home every six weeks. A hairdresser visits once a week. Daily papers and magazines can be arranged.
