Designed for comfort, designed for life

Green Tree Court is a luxury nursing and residential care home, situated on the outskirts of the historic city of Exeter in Devon. Rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission and awarded the ‘Gold Standard’ for Dementia Care by Stirling University, Green Tree Court is the perfect place to live for people who need the highest standards of support and care.

The reassurance of outstanding, person-centred clinical care around the clock is always at the heart of Green Tree Court. However, we also wanted to change traditional perceptions of what it’s like to live in a care home. To do this, we looked to boutique hotels and world-class luxury resorts for inspiration.

We conceived, designed and built this home, specifically to create a sanctuary for our discerning residents, with standards of living that not only meet, but also surpass expectations. From practical features like lighting and floor plans to luxurious touches, like our aquarium and grand piano; every facet has been carefully considered to be the best you can imagine.

Our exceptional team deliver an exceptional service

To provide excellent service, you need an outstanding team. We’re co-owned, managed and led by experienced nurses who use state-of-the-art equipment for diagnostics, treatment and care. And our clinical team are ably supported by carefully vetted and trained healthcare assistants, caterers and front-of-house staff. We are here to attend your every need, from helping you to send presents to the grandchildren to arranging activities to keep you active.

A mentally stimulating and sociable environment

We know that stimulation and entertainment help to maintain physical and emotional well-being. So we organise activities in and outside the home, and we regularly welcome lots of visitors, from the children at our local pre-school to llamas!

Every detail of our award-winning purpose-built home is custom designed, drawing on trusted experts and years of experience. With excellent food, highly trained and carefully selected staff and a plethora of services and activities, we’ve created a safe, happy and vibrant place in which our residents thrive.

Philosophy of care

We believe in providing the highest levels of personalised clinical care and attention to keep you safe and comfortable whatever your healthcare needs. But Green Tree Court is not ‘clinical’. It doesn’t feel like a hospital and is profoundly different to the majority of care homes you might have encountered. Instead, we’ve considered what’s important in one’s own home; paying particular attention to the furnishings, the decoration and above all, the atmosphere. When you step through our doors you’ll feel like you’ve walked into a friendly, vibrant boutique hotel but outstanding clinical care is always present.

Our philosophy is to provide a luxurious, stimulating, safe and caring environment that will meet the individual clinical, physical and emotional needs of everyone in our care. Residents are encouraged to maintain their independence and to prolong their vitality, personal interests, dignity and self-esteem.
