Home is Where the Heart is
Opened in September 2019, Poets Mews Care Home is our new, purpose-built residential & dementia care home in Clevedon, North Somerset and will be Avery’s 60th elder care service to open nationally. There is quite a buzz around our new Clevedon care home, new residents are joining us every few days and if you live locally you may have heard of our neighbouring independent living, retirement home The Hawthorns Clevedon which is also situated in Clevedon, overlooking the seafront.
Our residential as well as our dementia care community’s are vibrant, energetic spaces. There is an atmosphere of mutual support that we have worked hard to cultivate since opening in the summer of 2019. Our facilities such as our fully equipped cinema, library and spa tell only half the story. Our care staff are chosen because they understand that everyone has a part to play in getting the atmosphere just right within our Clevedon care home. Our new care home will follow the same successful, community focused formula, one that has seen our sister homes in Bristol and Weston-super-Mare earn a reputation for excellence across the south-west region. To see our much heralded, life story approach to dementia care click here for a fuller account of this practice.
We place a strong emphasis on balance, and maintaining a healthy level of well-being. A strong outreach ethos is how we engage with the wider, local community, and you will often see us out and about around Clevedon and north Somerset. We also welcome local schools, clubs and societies into our retirement home; it’s an approach that has put our other care homes firmly at the center of their respective communities and earned Avery four separate national care awards in 2018.

Companionship and most of all, fun, is never far from the day to day at our care home. We regularly invite community groups into the home, whether it is local volunteers from around Clevedon, scout groups or local schools and societies. We believe that residents should maintain and develop whatever interests or relationships they have enjoyed within the wider local community. We often find that residents share similar interests and we support those residents in any way we can to enjoy and maintain their hobbies or interests with other like minded people.
Enjoying our garden in the company of other residents is of course a popular a past time but so is maintaining it. We like to keep in garden ‘ship shape and Bristol fashion’ for all to enjoy and our gardening club sees to it that standards never drop!
