About us

Somerset Care is one of the major care providers in Southern England, and one of the largest not-for-profit care companies in the UK. As an award winning company, it’s no surprise that we put our customers at the heart of what we do, by listening to, and understanding their wishes.

About the home

A 2024 Carehome.co.uk Award winner, Burnworthy House is a dementia-friendly care home for up to 34 residents. 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Rapidly disappearing is the outdated idea that care homes need to be clinical, minimalistic and totally risk free.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 - 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.

As part of your role, your duties will include:

  • Leading and supervising carers day-to-day and working alongside them to provide high quality care.
  • Being responsible for resident’s care, liaising with their families, and health care professionals.

  • Hosting Resident/Staff meetings.
  • Assisting with the management of the Care Home.
