Welcome to Swimbridge House

Swimbridge House Nursing Home is a 44-bed nursing home with a very homely atmosphere and plenty of personal attention. The home is situated just outside the village of Swimbridge in a rural setting, close to the A361 link road and within five miles from the regional centre of Barnstaple, and seven miles from South Molton. The nursing home may be found by leaving the village along Station Hill and crossing the new bridge. There is a regular bus service to and from Barnstaple and South Molton which runs throughout the day.

The home offers full nursing care in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, where the physical and mental well-being of each resident will be catered for, providing a warm and friendly environment with highly qualified nursing staff giving professional care at all times. The home also provides residential care and has a dementia unit. The home is registered with the Care Quality Commission.

We Care

Swimbridge House aims to provide a safe environment, with 24 hour nursing care by our qualified and trained nursing team for the medically and chronically sick. We consider quality of life is of the greatest importance, aiming to maintain and improve the health of our residents while providing a caring, secure and stimulating atmosphere. All residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible and participate in the day to day routine of the home.

Our Purpose

Residents flourish as we care with warmth and understanding in a secure and happy environment with qualified, attentive staff. We will respect the privacy, dignity and integrity of all our residents at all times. Also, the religious and spiritual needs of our residents will be met wherever possible. We will meet the ongoing needs of our residents through discussion, monitoring and our efficient network of caring staff. We work to individual care plans based on the physical, emotional and special needs of our residents.

Adding a new wing to Swimbridge House Nursing Home

Swimbridge House Nursing Home have recently completed an extension for fifteen additional residents. Each new bedroom has en-suite facilities with a shower and is tastefully decorated, with a unique and homely feel. Since individuality is at the heart of our vision, residents are welcome to personalise their rooms by bringing special photograph, mementoes and items of furniture. To provide an environment suited for high quality care, all bedrooms have electric profiling beds, usability aids and a nurse call system. Other features include a wide corridor for easy wheelchair access, underfloor heating, ceiling hoists and grab-rails.

Swimbridge House Nursing Home gets ’GOOD’ news!

I found everyone very helpful and caring. It was a difficult month with mother deteriorating. The support was great, couldn't fault anyone, much improvement on when mother was first admitted. Tracey P (Daughter of Resident) on Friday 10 June 2016.
