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, as well as care for those living with dementia, 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 on staff who provides a consistent approach to physio, therapies and rehabilitation for those who need this. The physiotherapist works alongside the nursing staff to reduce falls and maintain independence for the residents.
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.
Types of care
The Manor provides person-centred residential and nursing care to residents with a range of medical and mental health conditions. The home has three units that are individually tailored to meet residents needs.

We have a therapy team who are committed to helping residents maintain as much independence as possible in a way that is unique to them. We have a range of professionals that visit, whether that be in the form of entertainment, rehabilitation, chiropody, hairdressing, or beauty therapy, with goals of increasing the well-being of residents.
