Why is this investment taking place?

During 2007/8 a review of the service identified that a transfer of the current provision to the Independent Sector would provide greater opportunities to improve the quality of service and meet the demands of the local population. Despite our best efforts, attempts to attract potential interest have proved unsuccessful. 

The provision of high quality residential care for those most vulnerable members of our community is a high priority for the Council. Therefore a decision was taken by Devon County Council’s Cabinet to support a major programme of refurbishment and remodelling of its residential care homes for older people, with an investment of £11.2 million between 2012 to 2015.
