Comments about Muchelney House

I have been taking my Dad for lunch once a week and to 'Singing for the Brain' every two weeks. Although he isn't a resident he is always made to feel very welcome by everyone. 31/03/2017Val (day user)reply

  • Muchelney House is a vibrant extra care housing scheme, that holds a range of activities, so there is something for everyone. The scheme participates fully in the community and is well regarded. The staff and carers are fully committed to resident welfare and the atmosphere is really welcoming. Made by a staff member in 2017

  • Secure with a warden on call at all times. Renting a flat allows one to be independent, allowing one to take part in community life which is offered regularly. Made by a resident in 2017

  • It's the best place to live. I am well cared for and have plenty of events. Certainly not lonely. Here we have a good manager. So good for us oldies' needs. Made by a resident in 2017

  • The reason I like living here is because I am independent but can also get involved in communal activities if I so wish with no pressure. Made by a resident in 2017

  • I feels safe and not too many worries (except what comes with age)!! Made by a resident in 2017

  • It is close to the town centre, on level ground. Lots of activities to get involved with. Made by a resident in 2017
