Proposal Details: We currently run our residential home with 18 residents at 60 Plymouth Rd in Tavistock just a few yards from Harewood House. As a Charity belonging to the Abbeyfield group of houses, some 633 in all we have had considerable experience in running homes for the elderly residents in the communities we serve all over the UK and abroad. We recently expanded Drake Lodge from 7 -18 units by building a large extension in 2009 offering bedsit accommodation on suite with the help of a grant from the Housing Corporation and the sale of our second house in Tavistock. We are fully compliant with the 2010 regulations for such properties and are very popular in that we have been always full with a large waiting list. Our charges are low largely as a result of our considerable support from our volunteers and our careful management of resources.
