The Manor Care Home in Taunton
Located in the countryside of the Quantock Hills in Bishops Hull in Taunton, the Manor offers 24 hour nursing and residential care. Close to Musgrove Park Hospital and just 3 miles from the M5 and centre of Taunton, our home is in a great location that makes keeping in touch with the local community easy, and convenient for visitors to reach us.
We accommodate older individuals with residential care needs, or those who require nursing care, with a dedicated team that is available 24 hours a day. We also understand that some may just require a week or two’s respite to regain confidence from a hospital stay, and know that, for some, a permanent move to a care home can be a daunting thought, so our respite services allow people to sample the Manor life before making a life-changing decision.
At the Manor, we are very much a family, and our approach is driven from each individual who lives here. Our care plans and detailed assessments allow for a tailored approach to each person's needs, including important factors of everyday living, such as religious beliefs, likes and dislikes and all aspects of personal daily living needs.
We have a physio assistant with us 5 days a week and a visiting physiotherapist from Musgrove Hospital, who can assist with helping residents to maintain independence or regain their strength.
We believe a sense of belonging and freedom of choice is crucial to everyone who visits and stays with us, from menu choices to activities and events taking place at the home. This is important for well-being, which is why we have a varied activity programme 7 days a week. Our in-house activities team works with our residents in group sessions, as well as in one-to-one time.
The best way for you to get a feel for the home is to pop in and see for yourself, where we can show you around and answer any questions that you may have. We know that food and the environment is very important, so families and individuals are also very welcome to come by for a coffee and home-made piece of cake in the bistro, or join us for a meal prior to making a decision.

Hi, my name is Carla and I am the General Manager here at The Manor. Welcome to our website!
I started my nursing career in the NHS. I have years of experience in cardiology, intensive care and A&E nursing. I left the NHS to join the private sector, exploring forensic nursing and other independent care providers. Before joining Barchester, I was the clinical manager for a large independent hospital. My passion to provide high standards of quality care is always at the forefront of what I do.
Barchester’s reputation for providing the highest quality care complements my commitment to provide compassionate and person-centred care. I look forward to leading and empowering a team dedicated to learning and improving the quality of life for our residents. I am also looking forward to developing good working relationships with relatives, commissioning bodies and the CQC.
My last two posts have been in senior management of nursing services. Both of these services were officially rated as 'Inadequate' by the CQC. Under my leadership and management, they both performed a complete turnaround and are now proudly rated as 'Good'.Get in touch Meet my team
