Torbay Rest Home is a home away from home and our staff are happy to be part of it.
Our team of qualified staff are highly trained and come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures. Careforce training is a regular part of our professional development and is available to our staff to keep up with best clinical practice.
Our staff are dedicated professionals, who often give more than required because they don’t see their role as ‘just a job’.
Our General Practitioner visits weekly, and there is a 24 hour on-call GP service. We provide assistance with hospital visits and appointments.
Registered nurses are on site and always on call. We use the latest methodology in nursing care to provide the quality control needed.

These range from newspaper discussion group, trivial pursuit through to zumba. We have regular morning walks, bingo sessions, bowls and singalongs. We also have weekly happy hour sessions where a musician comes in and plays to the residents.
We have volunteers giving hand and foot massages, and pet therapy sessions weekly.
