Welcome to Frethey House
Frethey House Care Home is set in a delightful rural location just to the west of Taunton. We make the most of our location to get out and about in Somerset, visiting local attractions, enjoying a pub lunch or having tea in one of the cafes in Taunton. The gardens are a popular spot with residents on warmer days where green-fingered residents are welcome to help us keep everything looking good, or to simply sit on the terrace with a cup of tea and watch the visiting wildlife.
Life at Frethey House is a home from home feel, residents feel that they are a part of the Frethey family, and their families, feel the same. Frethey is a place that people always want to come back to and stay with us because of the experience they have had in our community.
What does care from the heart mean to the team at Frethey House?
“Delivering the care that you would like for your family members and loved ones. Showing empathy when caring for residents who have individual care needs, and making it our duty to find out how our residents would like to live and to implement that within our community.”

Keeping Things Personal
The wonderful surroundings at Frethey House are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. When you arrive and throughout your stay you’re greeted with warmth, passion, and care and our community is vibrant, happy, and homely.
We love learning as much as we can about who we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual need and interests. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, how they like their tea, and everything about their daily routine. Our team take the time to get to know all our residents and encourage independence and communication.
We are dedicated to providing a smooth transition into a home where care is from the heart and interaction with residents is paramount. Our residents show us the way. They tell us what they need, and we do our very best to deliver. Every element of our care is considered with their needs in mind. Surrounding everyone with familiarity, security and care, we make their experience with us as fulfilling as possible.
“The staff showed great support and compassion at the end too. I do not think Mum could have been in a better place for her last weeks.”
David BFrethey House, Son of Resident
“I cannot recommend them enough for the kindness and dignity afforded to him when there was little hope of recovery.”
Lynne KFrethey House, Sister of Resident
“The staff treated her with unfailing kindness, respect and compassion. I could not have asked for a better nursing home for her.”
Sue SFrethey House, Daughter of Resident

I have a real passion for baking and feel like I have made a difference to the residents, baking different cakes for them to try. It is important I get to know the residents, so that I serve food they love and enjoy.
I am passionate about getting to know each resident and their family, so activities are person-centred. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a resident engage and enjoy an activity you host, no matter what their ability.
Meet the Manager
Helen Oliver is our Home Manager at Frethey House, here’s a little bit more about the home in her own words:
“I lead my professional Care Team in delivering the highest level of care and support for our residents.
My commitment to professional development has equipped me well for my role here, where I work hard to ensure that those in my care lead happy and fulfilling lives, whilst maintaining choice over the care and support they receive. I believe in maintaining strong relationships with residents and their relatives, and understand the important contribution that these relationships make to the successful running of a care home.
I feel that the company’s philosophy matches up well with my own beliefs on care provision and I am committed to ensuring that all our residents continue to receive the high levels of care and protection they deserve.”
