Extra care housing developments


There are currently four available developments in Devon. These are in Bideford, Ivybridge, Okehampton and Newton Abbot.

Moreton Court, Abbotsham Road, Bideford

Sanctuary Home Care provides 24-hour on-site care. Each apartment has its own front door, one or two bedrooms, lounge, fully-equipped kitchen, and a shower room with level access shower, washbasin and toilet.

The development includes attractive communal spaces, lifts to all floors and wheelchair access to all apartments and communal areas. Each apartment is fitted with white goods and an emergency pull-cord intercom alarm system that alerts a member of our on-site care team. Pendant alarms are available if required.

Torridge District Council and Devon County Council meet with Sanctuary to approve potential new tenants to ensure they meet the care requirements of the scheme.

Moreton Court is suitable if you:

  • are aged 55 or over with a care and support need and have local connections to Bideford, Torridge or Northern Devon
  • have care needs that have been assessed.

The scheme may not be suitable if you have been assessed as requiring a substantial amount of regular nursing care which can’t be delivered in your own home.
