Mount Tryon Care Home in Torquay
Mount Tryon Care Home in Torquay provides first-class nursing and residential care for frail older people. We pride ourselves on delivering person-centred care for a variety of needs, ranging from nursing and personal care to illnesses related to ageing and dementia. Our team of highly qualified nursing staff are supported by carers, activities staff and a physiotherapy team, ensuring the well-being of everyone we support.
Mount Tryon has a dedicated Memory Lane Community that provides a safe, homely environment for people living with dementia, which has been designed following these guidelines ensuring the care we provide supports residents’ freedom of choice. We aim to maintain their life-skills, improving their self-esteem and helping them to maintain and develop their independence while they are living with us.
Staff undertake specialist dementia care training developed by our team of Dementia Care Specialists and academic partners, the Centre for Dementia Research at Leeds Beckett University. Together they ensure our training programmes are informed by the very latest thinking. We ensure that the people we support feel comfortable and safe in their surrounding environment, helping ensure they live life with dementia to the full.
Choosing a care home for a loved one or friend who may be experiencing dementia can be difficult and we have created a guide to showcase how we ‘Enrich the lives of people living with dementia’ in our care home.
Mount Tryon is ideally located, benefiting from being close to local beaches, the harbour and the town centre. There are breathtaking views and lots of local amenities to enjoy, all within very close range.
The purpose-built home is built over two floors and is fully equipped with assisted baths and equipment to aid safe moving and handling. All the bedrooms are single with en-suite facilities and some have patio doors with access to our beautifully designed gardens. There are several lounges and two dining rooms, where visitors will also be assured a warm welcome.
We welcome visitors and enquiries, so please feel free to drop in or give us a call.

Hi, my name is Damon, and I am the Senior General Manager here at Mount Tryon. Welcome to our website!
I started my working career in sales/account management working in different sectors, such as logistics, domestic appliances and IT. I got to a stage in my life where I felt I needed to give back to my community, so I began working for the NHS, supporting people with learning disabilities for just under 6 years, finishing in the post of Support Manager, where I oversaw a team of managers working in over 10 different services.
I started working in care homes in 2014, which is when I first became a Registered Manager, and have worked for Bupa, Gracewell Healthcare and Brighterkind. This came as a direct result of seeing how my own grandmother was not treated with dignity and respect whilst in hospital. I have a strong history of turning homes around, engaging staff teams, initiating change and ensuring the residents live a meaningful life.
I believe in building open and honest relationships with residents, relatives and anyone who visits the home. My door is always open, so please feel free to pop in for a chat or a cup of tea.Get in touch Meet my team
