The Building and the Facilities

Built to high specification, Chelston Gardens provides a peaceful, harmonious atmosphere. The emphasis is on light and large windows frame beautiful views over the Blackdown Hills. While built to meet the nursing needs of those living with dementia, Chelston Gardens is a warm home for our fifty residents.

At Chelston, our residents are never short of places to sit. As well as the privacy of their own rooms, the house boasts four sitting and dining rooms – one in each of the wings. There are alcoves with seating areas throughout and on each floor there is a sensory room designed to relax people with dementia.
