Planting a Plant


Everyone ages. It is an inherent part of life. As our bodies and minds develop over time, we adapt to these changes by modifying our decisions and actions. The later years of life can be especially challenging, but The Retreat Care Home is here to help. At The Retreat Care Home, we listen to the needs of our residents in order to understand their limitations and discuss potential solutions. We work with our community members to customize options that will help them lead the lives they want.

The Retreat Care home is owned by Sunshine Care Ltd and has been in the same family since it began in 1998 by Susie & Paul  Constantine.

 Susie was a registered general nurse who had over 40 years nursing experience in and around the Plymouth area she oversaw and set up all aspects of the business from staff recruitment & training to client care which enabled her small dedicated management team to continue on into this present day with all of her shared knowledge and skills.  

We pride ourselves on providing a home from home environment which is tranquil, warm and friendly. The Retreat is a grade II listed building which is over 400 years old, it has character and charm surrounded by beautiful gardens and abundance of nature and wildlife.  Situated off the main road you can enjoy peace and quiet without the noise of the traffic. 

Registered for a  maximum of only 20 residents, we are considered a small home. 

We have a unique ‘person-first’ approach to care, meaning we take the time to fully understand someone’s needs and situation, so we can provide appropriate care by fully trained and supervised care workers. We have incredibly high standards when it comes to our care workers  and will only employ the very best. We are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and have been rated as “Good”.
