Our unique model is a tribute to all the Residents we have had the privilege to care for – they have been our best teachers!

We have developed our dementia model by combining over 30 years of experience with comprehensive professional training from world experts in the field of dementia, extensive research, and by selecting some of the best practices found worldwide. Our staff team is handpicked to deliver exceptional specialised dementia care to our Residents and Day Guests.

We aim to create moments of joy for every Resident each day or night. We make a difference in the well-being of our Residents by making each day count. Our thoughtful and gentle care interventions and therapies are woven into their day to reduce anxiety and agitation. We place each Resident's unique and individual needs at the centre of our interventions and provide good old-fashioned Tender Loving Care.

From the manager

“Smithmon, who likes to be called Smith, joined the Devonshire team in 2015. He started as an Assistant Manager; next he helped establish and run the Devonshire Dementia Day Centre as Director and is now Care Manager of both the Care Home and the Day Centre. After graduating in India with a nursing degree, he worked for two years and then came to London to pursue a Masters degree. While studying he started working in the care industry. His love and respect for his grandparents, his Indian heritage, his gentle manner and passion to provide exceptional care have led him further down this path. He has an NVQ level 3 in Health & Social Care; Level 7 Post Graduate Diploma in Leadership & Management in Health Care; Masters degree in Business Administration. He is a qualified Dementia Care mapper, a Certified Trainer and consultant in Positive Approach to Care and has studied Dementia & the Montessori method. He is leading his team to learn the most effective approaches in dementia care and works tirelessly to make a difference in peoples’ lives. Smith’s ultimate aim is to provide seamless care for the Residents and Day Guests, at the same time educating and reassuring every family member struggling to provide care to their loved ones. Smith’s first day in his new position as Care Manager was March 16 2020, at the time when the Devonshire and the whole of the UK went into lockdown for the COVID-19 pandemic. Smiths’ nursing background and experience together with his knowledge of the Devonshire have helped him steer the Devonshire to minimise the pandemic reach. Although we, as the rest of the UK, are not out of the woods yet, the Devonshire has been fortunate as a care home to date. Thanks to Smith’s leadership we were also the first home to cautiously open up for visits in the Kingston area.”
