82 places for nursing and dementia care

Countryside surroundings, close proximity to the pretty cathedral city of Wells and, above all, highly trained and committed staff in a purpose-built home - these are just some of the features that make Torrwood such a welcoming and safe place for people with dementia and nursing needs.

Torrwood has places for up to 82 people, all rooms are private and en suite, some with shower facilities. It has recently had a £130,000 refurbishment. We understand that personal tastes and needs vary, so we encourage residents to personalise their rooms. We also have one room that can accommodate a couple, which means that a couple who share different care needs can remain together at Torrwood.

Here, our staff members take the time and care to get to know each resident, talking to them and their families about their likes and dislikes and personal backgrounds and stories, in order to be able to provide the person-centred care that lies at the heart of MHA’s values.

Testing & Vaccination

Residents are tested regularly and have been offered their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, with many also having received their second dose. Any new residents will be tested on admission and be supported during a 14-day period of self-isolation to protect themselves and others.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

We have good stock levels of approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), which is worn by all our staff and any necessary visitors to the care home.

Keeping in touch

We’re doing everything we can to stay in touch with residents’ family and loved ones, updating them on the current situation and any changes to visiting through online updates, remotely organised meetings and letters.

Privacy and independence, friendship and support - 24 hours a day

Torrwood offers care and comfort, compassion and friendship. At the heart of all we offer is our assurance that you will be treated with the respect and dignity that we all deserve, and if you need anything at all, we’re here to help, 24 hours a day.

Whether in the privacy of your own room or relaxing in the company of your friends and neighbours, we will support you to spend your time doing the things you enjoy. Let us know if it’s music, a favourite newspaper, exercise or a spot of pampering at the salon. Landscaped gardens invite you to appreciate the fresh air, or tend the plants, if you wish. There’s a wide range of social events, so you never need to feel bored or lonely.

Meal times are a special part of the day for you to savour tasty food, freshly cooked by our chef to suit you and any dietary needs. And, of course refreshments are available throughout the day for you and your visitors, who are welcome at any time.
