Highlands Borders Care Home


Location and contact details

22 Salutary Mount, Heavitree, Exeter, EX1 2QE

The Aim of our Care

Early onset, or Borderline dementia can be very frightening for both the person affected and their loved ones. At Highlands Borders we recognise and respect this. After much research into facilities for younger people with early onset dementia in and around Devon, we quickly realised that there was a gap in dementia care that needed to be filled. Many people only associate Dementia with much older people. This is not the case. Dementia, does not discriminate.

The Care We Offer

The Aim of Highlands Borders is not only to provide a permanent home for 18 Residents, but also to provide the practical support so necessary while your loved one remains at home with you.To this end, Borders can offer residential, respite care, and memory café sessions where you can drop in for a cuppa and a chat. You and your loved one will be able to find the stimulation or the peace you need within the lovely atmosphere that is ‘Borders’.Your loved one can be sure of a good break themselves, with first class meals, independent choice, and attentive, well trained staff. Bringing the care of dementia is not a job at Borders it is a passion. So, why not pop in and have a look, or telephone us to make an appointment to be shown around?
