About Somerset Care

We support people to live the life they choose, whether in one of our care homes or in their own home.

As a major care provider in Southern England and one of the largest not-for-profit care companies in the UK, Somerset Care offers an extensive, holistic range of care and support services, tailored to your individual needs.

Wherever you are on your care journey, we are committed to supporting you every step of the way.

We’ve been caring for our residents for over 30 years

In 1991, Somerset became the first county to privatise residential care homes that were previously run by the local authority, and the newly formed Somerset Care took over the management of 26 residential care homes, supporting over 1,000 residents to live the life they choose.

Over three decades on, and thousands of people in communities across Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and B&NES have been supported by our specialist residential, community, learning disabilities and dementia support teams.

As a not-for-profit company, Somerset Care exists to deliver high-quality care for those who need it in our local communities – whether in our residential care homes or their own homes.

As long as that need is there, we will be here to meet it. We look forward to providing the specialist support needed to help even more people to live the life they choose.

Everything we do at Somerset Care is underpinned by our four core values:

  • Connecting with people
  • Making a difference
  • Doing the right thing
  • Embracing change

By living these values, we ensure that we keep our commitment to delivering high-quality, tailored care to support and enrich the lives of our residents and customers.

What we stand for

Somerset Care is committed to providing high-quality care which supports and enriches the lives of those we care for. Everything we do as an organisation is aligned to our strategy of Quality, Efficiency and Growth.
