Avon Care Homes welcomes you to the Wells Nursing Home, situated in Somerset, just a few miles from the beautiful city of Wells, England’s smallest city at the foot of The Mendip Hills.

We are committed to providing the highest standards of care in elegant and luxurious surroundings. We aim to personalise and individualise the environment to give the home a unique feel. We provide all the necessary care and attention for those who wish to spend their retirement in a secure, caring and homely atmosphere whilst respecting their privacy and maintaining their respect and dignity as far as possible. We also cater for people wishing to enjoy a holiday or short break.

The Wells Nursing Home welcomes up to 40 residents all in single rooms, with en-suite bathrooms. Each bedroom is well equipped with a nurse call system, television and personal washing facilities.

The home has two dining rooms. One spacious, very smart dining room facing the gardens with wonderful views of The Mendip Hills and a smaller room where residents can choose to eat in more privacy if they wish. The food is provided for us by our experienced and well qualified cooks. The menus are varied and special needs are always met.

There is a comfortable sitting room where residents can relax. This leads into another sitting room with more views of the attractive gardens. The gardens are beautifully landscaped with several seating areas including a lovely patio area.

Avon Care Homes staff at the Wells Nursing Home are all chosen for their kindness and friendliness as well as their nursing skills. They are very professional and motivated and training is provided to ensure that high standards are kept.

Health professionals, doctors, opticians, dentists and chiropodists visit frequently. Hairdressing, reflexology and other specialist therapies are available as required.

There is always something to do with a lively programme of activities and occasional outings. Guests, be it friends or relatives, are always made to feel welcome at any time of day.

The Wells Nursing Home is somewhere special.

Review from J A (Daughter of Resident)
My mum has been in this care home since November 2019. I have found all the staff and manager to be excellent in the care and respect for mum. My mum recently celebrated her 100th birthday. All the staff were lovely and they made her a fantastic cake and put on a wonderful spread for her special day, they couldn’t have been kinder. I am so pleased I made the right decision in choosing The Wells Nursing Home for my mum.

Review from P S (Son of Resident)
Since new management has taken over, I couldn’t be more pleased with the outstanding efforts that have been made to enhance my father’s quality of life. One particular person has been a breath of fresh air, he has enabled my dad to get out of bed and in a chair for the first time in nearly a years, and is now able to socialise with residents. Communication has been excellent with regular progress updates. Care staff helpful and friendly and have put us all at ease when visiting.
