Following significant investment, The Manor has a brand new look! The appearance of our home has been carefully designed with the people we care for in mind. Our bright new reception area is the perfect spot for socialising or taking part in one of our many daily activities. Our beautiful new dining room is a wonderful place to enjoy a three-course home-made lunch and our new bedrooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated. Why not take a look at our virtual tour to see our brand new look? Or alternatively, pop in to our home to see for yourself!

The Manor Care Home in Taunton is situated in beautiful grounds on the edge of this pretty market town, which has a good mix of shops, a range of interesting events and strong transport links. 

Our residential Care Home provides first class 24-hour nursing and residential care in a modern purpose-built home. We offer support to older people but also diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitative services to a range of younger adults with complex care needs, including people with tracheostomies, some of whom may require mechanical ventilation due to spinal injury, people with brain injuries or other neurological conditions, people with sensory impairments and people with physical disabilities. Treatment is linked to carefully tailored care planning and regular review. We liaise with local health services to ensure that the best therapies are available to the people we support, and offer a wide and very popular range of activities. As with all Barchester homes, we pride ourselves on the high standards of our cooking, hospitality and housekeeping.   

We offer an unusually complex range of services, a very high quality of nursing care and care planning and are genuinely committed to supporting families. We are always happy to help with advice, and welcome visitors. Please feel free to ring us or to call in personally for a look round.

Hi, my name is Lesley and I am the Acting General Manager here at The Manor. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website!

I have been a qualified nurse for over 40 years. I have worked for Barchester since 2015 and have enjoyed a varied career. I have lived all over the world and even spent a year in India undertaking voluntary work. 

Prior to working for Barchester, I specialised in accident & emergency, occupational health, palliative care, dementia, care of the elderly and crisis management. I also assist CQC inspectors as a specialist advisor on a part-time basis.
