We are The Community of St Anthony & St Elias, an organisation in Devon working with people with mental health conditions
A community of people, living and sharing their lives together.
What unites everyone here is the desire to move on and get on with their life - living together with people and all the interaction and support that goes with that, relating to each other as equals, exercising choices and coping with responsibilities that come with it.
We aim to encourage people towards independence and individual choice. The Community encourages the development of social as well as working relationships between residents and staff, creating a situation of equal persons living together.
One relative told us that the staff treated everyone as equals and this was apparent when they visited and sometimes they were unable to tell who was a resident and who was a member of staff. They told us this was because people were “together” and “treated each other with so much respect”.
