Overview

Harding House provides supported living accommodation for older people in Exmouth, in 12 rooms and a two-storey maisonette. We have a stairlift and all rooms are unfurnished, allowing residents to bring their own furniture to create a real home from home.

The best features of the house include the lovely, bright, sunny lounge where residents meet in the mornings for coffee and chat and to watch the world go by. A door from the lounge leads via a gentle slope into the garden where, in summer, residents sit and chat or entertain guests outside. We also have a summerhouse for residents’ use. Occasional Summer or Autumn Fayres are held in our garden.

All cleaning of rooms and communal areas and personal laundry is provided by our staff so no resident needs to worry about washing, ironing or cleaning unless they want to do extra light dusting in between!

There are some useful local shops just over the road providing all the basics – a supermarket, hairdresser, post office, bakery and charity shop are included.

Our dedicated House Manager and Deputy ensure the house is warm, comfortable, safe and welcoming. Additional support is provided by our other staff and a care line provider when the staff are away from the premises. Each resident has a pendant alarm and additional call points are situated in the communal areas.

Harding House is managed by Abbeyfield Exmouth.

Life at the house

Our activities 

Residents doing a crosswordActivities at Harding House are organised in consultation with, or sometimes by, the residents. There is usually a jigsaw puzzle on the go and occasional games afternoons. Residents’ birthdays are celebrated usually with drinks and maybe a buffet depending on the preferences of the person whose birthday is being celebrated.

Musical entertainments are popular as are dramatic readings, discussion groups and many more. At Christmas local school children come in to sing and a Christmas buffet following Christmas music and carols from different entertainers is offered.

Residents are free to offer their suggestions for activities and all are consulted before any activities take place. We also have regular House Committee meetings where residents can have an input into what goes on in Harding House.

Our delicious food 

Our House Manager and Deputy Cook all produce home-cooking of a very high standard. Presentation is very important and all meals are a visual feast as well as a nutritious one! All of the residents comment on the variety and high standard of the food and their tastes and preferences are always taken into account.

Our cooks are flexible and are able to cater, or have catered, for diabetics, coeliacs and vegetarians as well as other special diets such as low potassium and foods low in phytates.

Cakes are a real speciality as well as curries, roasts and huge trays of colourful roast veggies which are very popular. Plenty of spices and herbs as well as garlic are enjoyed by many of our residents though care is taken to ensure whether a resident can eat these or not. We consistently get the highest score of 5 for our Food Hygiene as well.
As there are so many favourite recipes we couldn’t choose one in particular!
