Abbeyfield Taunton is part of the wider Abbeyfield Society, a charitable organisation with over 500 houses and homes around the country, and patrons including HRH The Prince of Wales. It has nearly 60 years’ experience in providing safe and secure care environments where residents can find friendship and support.

Every Abbeyfield home is different, catering to the individual needs of its residents and providing a unique environment – but the over-riding philosophy and ethos is the same: a genuine commitment to providing the very highest level of personal care in friendly, stimulating and welcoming surroundings.

You can find out more about Abbeyfield, its history and its ethos by visiting the group website.



As a not for profit organisation run for the benefit of local people, by local people, Abbeyfield Taunton has a Board of Trustees who offer guidance in the governance and management of the house and get involved in any strategic decisions. Our trustees come from a range of backgrounds and professions, but all donate their time and expertise on a voluntary basis to help us to continue to achieve our goal: providing the very best quality of care, in a stimulating, homely environment, for all our residents.
