Welcome to Care Wyvern

Welcome to Care Wyvern, a family ran care provider established in 1998, providing high quality home care services in Somerset, with our offices based in Taunton.

The support we offer to our clients is designed to provide a personalised touch, and to assist those wishing to maintain their independence. This is something that cannot be achieved within a traditional residential care home setting. Our personalised home care services are aimed at creating and providing a care plan that meets an individual’s unique and specific requirements, with a bespoke care service that suits both the individual needing care and their loved ones. In addition, we also help support our clients within their local communities with various activities such as trips out and grocery shopping, giving the individuals we care for the full package necessary towards independent living.

In 2012, we became the first home care provider in Somerset to offer electronic monitoring which increased accountability by recording timings of care visits in real-time. Since then, we have refined this service and now offer our clients and their families the use of the openPASS system. This service has improved communication between our carer staff, whilst also recording real-time arrival and departure times. It allows clients’ families to access the notes about a visit, as well as seeing exactly when their loved one has had a visit from one of our carers.

Our carers are at the heart of what we do, so we provide ourselves on providing them with a great place to work. We offer full, continuous training and nationally recognised qualifications to all of our staff. But don’t just take our word for it – one of our carers, Ross, recently said: “I knew I wanted to work in the Community, and I knew just how good the team is at Care Wyvern. The training and support they offer is amazing, and it really is like a family.” If you are interested in a rewarding career with us, check out our vacancies.

Care Wyvern is registered with the Care Quality Commission and is accredited with both Somerset & Devon Social Services. Furthermore, we received a GOOD rating across the board in our latest CQC Report. The full report is available to view here.

Improving Somerset Employees Work / Life Balance

Care Wyvern has launched an exciting new way of working for staff, enabling them to enjoy an improved work life balance by allowing staff to work for 9 days whilst getting paid for 10.

Care work is incredibly rewarding but can sometimes be demanding, which is why we are offering staff this imaginative benefit. We believe we are the first employer in Somerset to offer staff this chance to work a little less without losing income, enabling them to enjoy more leisure time doing the things they love with friends and family.

If you have an interest or would like to find out a little bit more contact Kayleigh on 01823 325554 or jobs@carewyvern.co.uk for an informal chat or pop into our offices in central Taunton. Your new career with a perfect work life balance could be just around the corner!

Don't just take our word for it...

The carers working for Care Wyvern are very nice and friendly. You feel they have your best interests at heart. It is nice that you are given a rota once a week to tell you who you are having the following week and at what time.

The staff are kind, professional and committed to my mother’s care. They always come into the house with a smile and their care is taken out with warmth and always a gentle touch. I always look forward to seeing the members of Care Wyvern, I’ve been extremely happy at all times.

Mrs G

All of the care team have been excellent providing my mother with care. From our initial meeting when my mum was in hospital to her care at home to date, we have been very happy with it all. My mum thinks the carers are wonderful and they have helped towards making her so happy.

Miss G G

I would like to compliment Care Wyvern as they are motivational and have helped me, as previously I used to feel scared but they will give me time to talk and have discussed with me thought patterns, changing the way I think into a positive and achieving attitude.
Care Wyvern are very caring and they make me feel wanted and they are very helpful when I am ill, which is the time when I really need them.
They are more motivated to help when I am sick. I think the world of Care Wyvern.

Miss B

The carers who come and prepare food and talk to my mother are all very kind, caring and professional. They leave a note of what has happened during their call, so I can see when I come in if anything unusual happened and how my mother was.

The supervisors are very helpful and supportive and rectify any problems quickly. My mother has dementia and is treated with great respect and gentleness by all the staff. I feel confident that she is in safe hands with them and that they will contact me if there’s anything to do with my mother’s care that I need to be made aware of.

Mrs H

The management staff are polite, approachable, helpful and any concerns noted. The care staff are well trained and caring and treat clients with dignity. Leading us to the death of my father, Care Wyvern staff were supportive, understanding and willing to adapt to the changing needs and medication requirements he had.

They are also supportive and encouraging to my mother who is a dementia sufferer and I want the care staff she has come attached to, to continue to deliver personal care to her in her widowhood.

Mrs H

My mother receives fantastic support from Care Wyvern, many of her helpers became good friends. The ability to change care plans quickly from 1 or 2 visits a week to every day was really good. Excellent staff.

Thank you for helping my mum.

Mrs L

Care Wyvern provided care for my mother over several years. I found them very good and helped very much with extras, arranging tablets, washing, tidying, sitting and talking to my mother, encouraging her to eat and drink more.
Very professional company, good contact with relatives, kept informed of any issues, made good suggestions, always stayed for the full allotted time. In summary, I would highly recommend Care Wyvern.

Mr W

Our aunt (100 yrs) was treated with intelligent care and respect despite her being awkward on occasions. Although Care Wyvern only assisted for 1 month we were very pleased and had she not had to go into residential care would have been happy and continued with Care Wyvern. The office staff were excellent every time we rang.
