Praise for Frethey House

The care team at Frethey House care home with nursing, in Taunton are always pleased to receive great feedback and praise regarding their hard work and dedication as we take great pride in ensuring we deliver safe, high quality care.

The comments we receive mean a lot to everyone here as we always welcome the opportunity to review and improve upon what we offer. Reading lovely testimonials from our residents, families and friends is what makes it all worthwhile and we are sharing some of their comments here, with many thanks for their support.

“My Mum had a short stay at Frethey House before she died. I have to say it was such a lovely home. The staff are full of care and compassion and go that extra mile to make the resident and family welcome. The open hrs to visit are great as I worked shift work. My mum was very happy here. She was well looked after and always dressed, clean and cared for. I spent ages trying to decide where to send her as she wasn’t able to make that decision. If you are in the same position then I can’t recommend the home enough. In her last few days and hours, the staff made sure she died with care, love and dignity. A wonderful place in lovely grounds with great staff.”

Relative of Resident

“My brother was admitted to Frethey House on 31st May 2016 and had to receive complex care due to Dysphagia following a second stroke in hospital. He subsequently had to be fed via a G-peg tube and suffered aspiration pneumonia a number of times as a result. The staff at Frethey House responded rapidly to these unfortunate episodes and due to their care and diligence enabled my brother to survive for a year. I cannot recommend them enough for the kindness and dignity afforded to him when there was little hope of recovery.”

Relative of Resident

“Dad spent the last 9 months of his life in the excellent hands of Frethey House. While he would have preferred to have been at home, he and his family, felt that nursing care was essential and this couldn’t have happened at home.
The care, dedication, warmth and professionalism displayed by all staff at Frethey House was truly outstanding. The two nurses who were most closely involved with dads care surpassed even those high standards. Frethey House was then represented at dad’s funeral by two of these staff members, this speaks volumes. We are very, very grateful.”
