About Us

The Tudors Residential Home is situated in the mystical town of Glastonbury and provides all the comfort and independence of home, minus the work and worries.

We believe in a whole person approach to care that focuses on the individual needs and wishes of all of our residents. We strive to help our people maintain their hobbies and interests as much as possible, with extensive gardens and patios to the rear of the home and the charming town centre only a few minutes’ walk away, we support everyday activities such as gardening or shopping, and trips to cafes or the church.

Our fully trained staff care for residents in every sense of the word, both physically and mentally, whilst preserving their dignity and independence. Trained nurses are always on call to support our care staff and a doctor can be summoned 24 hours a day if required.

We have regular visits from the hairdresser and barber, clergy, and health professionals such as opticians, chiropodists, dentists and podiatrists to make life as stress-free as possible for you.

The accommodation is made up of 20 single rooms which are all centrally heated, with a wash-hand basin and 11 with en-suite facilities. Residents are encouraged to bring their own furniture if they wish and to make their space their own. All rooms have an emergency
call system, attended by 24 hour waking staff.

Meals are ‘home cooked’ and prepared in the kitchen - using fresh meat, vegetables, fruit and locally sourced produce whenever possible. The menu is varied, and individual preferences and special dietary needs can be catered for.

For more information or to arrange a visit please contact us.

Friarn House Residential Home

My husband went there from the hospital and showed signs of improvement from the first day. He had more energy, was more alert and less confused.  He is very vulnerable emotionally and I was worried that he would feel lost and insecure away from home. To my great relief, he always looks very integrated and secure with every member of staff and the other residents.

The staff's cheerfulness and good humour is noteworthy in this difficult and often frustrating area of care.

AK - Daughter
Avalon Court Residential Home

Being a small home Beech Tree House has a family home feel to it - not at all like an institution. The lovely, mature garden is easily accessible from the house and is enclosed by an old stone wall so there is no risk of residents wandering off.
