Welcome to Care Wyvern
Welcome to Care Wyvern, a family ran care provider established in 1998, providing high quality home care services in Taunton, Bridgwater and across Somerset.
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 [email protected] 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!
