History of Torcare

Torcare began over 30 years ago in 1981 with the purchase and conversion of our Old Vicarage home at Antony.

Three years later, the then 28-bed Torpoint Nursing Home was purchased. Over the next 12 years, the nursing home underwent a number of extensions, first in 1989 and again in 1996 to transform it into our 55-bed nursing home.

The late 1990s saw the addition of our meals on wheels service, providing freshly cooked meals to those who struggle to eat well. Shortly after, our home care service was introduced in 2001, enabling those that need care the choice of staying at home.

The latest addition to Torcare, Porte Rouge, was purchased in 2009. After carrying out extensive renovations, Porte Rouge was transformed into a modern home with 33 en-suite rooms.

With a history spanning 30 years, we’ve gone from strength to strength. Our high level of care has put us in good standing with other professionals and the community.

Our three decades of experience means that we are experts in our field and always strive to provide the best care.

Resident Experiences

There are only so many words that we can use to describe the level of care and support that can be expected from our team at Torcare. In reality, nothing explains our service better than hearing directly from some of those who’ve experienced our care first-hand.
