Services

Residential Care – The primary service we offer is long-term residential care for elderly people, no longer able to manage to live independently.

Respite Care – Where possible we are pleased to accommodate residents for short term respite care to give family or carers a break for a week or longer, or to allow time for convalescence after illness or a hospital visit.

Day Care – We are able to offer a number of day places providing help with personal care as well as providing a delicious home-cooked meal at lunch time. Those living alone have a chance to get out and meet people, have a good meal and join in an activity or entertainment.

Independent Living Apartment – We are also able to offer the Lodge, a one bedroom ground floor self-contained apartment with living room, kitchen and bathroom, for independent supported living. This is an ideal stepping stone, whereby residents can live with the support and services provided by the adjacent care home, but retain their independence and feeling of having their own home. The Apartment is let on a fully maintained assured shorthold tenancy, with a menu of additional services such as cleaning, meals, and access to all of the care facilities and activities within  Somerset House.

“I have visited many care and residential homes over the years, and I can quite honestly say that Somerset House stands out head and shoulders above all of them. The residents are treated with total respect and there is a fantastic range of activities organised for them. My Mum couldn't be in a better place.”
