About Us

Moorgate Residential Home is a home in every sense of the word. We are a family run home so everyone knows each other. Yourself and your relatives are warmly welcomed and soon will become one of the family.

Moorgate is situated in the beautiful Walkham valley with easy access to the nearby market town of Tavistock and city of Plymouth. Staff are on hand 24 hours a day to provide quality care in a safe environment and our staff are specially trained to care for those who suffer with dementia. If you are struggling to cope we welcome phone calls and can advise on whether or not a care home is the right step for you.

 We encourage our care team to participate in specialist training, and we recognize the need to continually develop our staff skill base. Our team continues to excel and we have managed to maintain a very low staff turnover. A high percentage of our care team are trained or are currently undergoing training to NVQ 2 or better. We provide long term and respite care.

Moorgate is managed by Liz and supported by Noreen who has 25 years nursing practice and extensive experience with running a care home. Liz started her career as a carer at Moorgate and worked very hard and has now gained qualifications in management. We are supported by Noreen’s husband Kevin and his team, who is responsible for maintaining a safe and comfortable caring environment for all at Moorgate.


“Moorgate Care Home was the obvious choice following our visits to other care homes. The management team and all members of staff were caring, kind and thoughtful towards both Dad and ourselves.”

“My relative has always received excellent care, the staff are always on hand to help and have been consistently friendly and supportive.”
