The Koppers is a CQC-registered family-run residential care home specialising in the care of people with dementia. It is set in one of the most beautiful villages in East Devon. At The Koppers we are committed to providing quality care while maintaining respect for and the dignity of each individual resident. We create a warm and homely environment that is safe and secure. Each resident has their own careplan which is carefully tailored to meet their individual needs and continuously evolves as those needs change. We are also trained (and in the process of accreditation) in the gold standards framework for end of life care, which ensures that the physical and emotional needs of those approaching the end of their lives are understood and met so that they experience complete clam, peace, and comfort.
