Welcome to Mount Olivet Nursing Home!

A family-owned Nursing Home in Preston, Paignton, commanding beautiful sea views across Torbay.


We understand that choosing the right nursing home for yourself or a loved one is important, so we will help you make the best decision to meet all your needs and wishes.


Mount Olivet specialise in nursing and end-of-life care, supporting a wide range of care needs. We care for people with specialist conditions and treatment needs, including Multiple Sclerosis, peg feeds, PSP, multiple system atrophies, COPD and other respiratory limitations, and neurological conditions. We can also offer a nursing home to those who live with a catheter or stoma, Parkinson’s disease and related symptoms, and those who have suffered strokes or are prone to TIAs. The list isn’t exhaustive, so whatever your care needs, we hope to be able to offer a home here.


Our staff at Mount Olivet Nursing Home look forward to welcoming you into the home for a tour, but in the meantime, please take a look around our website to give you a better idea of what we do here.
