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
