You're in safe hands

With the announcement of a national lockdown on 4th January 2021, we will be unable to support internal visits with the use of rapid tests, in line with government guidance. Visits within our designated visitor suites can continue as normal however, and should be booked in the usual way. End of Life and essential visits will be facilitated as per government guidance. With the commencement of vaccination programmes in our Care Homes we will be reviewing this situation in line with advice from Public Health England and will welcome you back in to our homes with rapid tests as soon as it is safe to do so.

Burnworthy House

We are pleased to welcome you to our website and would be equally pleased to welcome you to our home. We are a dementia-friendly care home for up to 34 residents. If you’re not yet ready to make the long-term move to a care home, we also offer short stays for respite care, and day care.

Burnworthy House is a prime example of the changing face of care homes in the UK. Rapidly disappearing is the outdated idea that care homes need to be clinical, minimalistic and totally risk free.

Residents are encouraged to put their own stamp on their bedroom and make it their own, putting up their own pictures and photos. Each room has an emergency call system and a vanity unit; most rooms have en-suite facilities. Whilst rooms are single, it may be possible to arrange shared accommodation. We have a hairdressing salon onsite with a professional hairdresser visiting twice a week. A doctor from the local surgery visits on a weekly basis and a chiropodist visits regularly.

Burnworthy House has been providing compassionate, high quality care in South Petherton since the 1970s. We strive to ensure that our home is a welcoming place and have been rated ‘Good’ by the CQC at their most recent inspection.
