Eothen is a registered charity providing care for older people. We are governed by a board of trustees who ensure our Christian Ethos and values are promoted and maintained. Our residents, relatives and staff are part of the Eothen family and are central to everything we do.

We provide residential and dementia care centred around the individuals physical and emotional needs. Our specialist dementia care home is based on the ‘Butterfly Household Model of Care’ where the environment is designed for small household living which positively impacts on the wellbeing of people living with a dementia, generates a sense of belonging and where residents feel needed, wanted and loved.

All of our homes have a relaxed atmosphere where staff dress casually and do not wear name badges, which creates a home from home family feel. The focus is on ‘feelings’ and person centred care where routines are relaxed with staff free to sit and chat to residents. Our staff really get to know the residents, their life history and what is important to them.
