Keeping things personal

At Frethey House

The wonderful surroundings at Frethey House are matched by the standard of care our team brings residents. We love learning as much as we can about the people we care for, so your loved one’s time is tailored to their individual needs, interests and preferences. This can be as small as knowing when they like to wake up, to how they like their tea, and everything in between.

We give as much independence as possible, letting individuals choose how to run the home and if they prefer dinner in front of the TV, or even dusting their own room, we’ll make it happen. Just as putting their own stamp on their bedroom, we’ll help them to personalise it with the things they love.

Keep doing what you love

At Frethey House, there’s something for everyone – from arts and crafts to the hair salon and our packed schedule of events and activities. And if residents prefer to spend one-on-one time with a member of the team, they can read the paper, pop to the shops or have a chat with a cup of tea. We have strong connections with the Taunton community, many of our residents invite them to join in our activities or even run their own here.

Meet the Manager

Tracey Jepson

I’m a qualified Mental Health Nurse and previously spent 17 years working in Forensic Nursing. After which I went on to become the Hospital Director of Hart’s Leap Hospital for four years, which was my first role with Caring Homes. I then became the Home Manager of three of our sister homes, Dormy House, Kingsclear and Moorlands, before starting my role as Care Home Manager for Frethey House.

My role is to provide effective leadership in the home, protecting the safety and rights of our residents. I’m also here to support our Care Team, making sure they have access to the training and development opportunities they need to deliver the best standards of care possible. I enjoy striving towards making our home the best it can be and I love getting to know residents and relatives and building strong relationships. Ensuring our residents receive the best quality care we can provide, and being responsible for that is probably what I enjoy most about my job.

My strong leadership experience is one of the key things I bring to the home and I achieved a good CQC rating shortly after I became the manager at both Dormy House and Moorlands – these are probably my biggest career achievements so far.
