Care & support


Find care and support that’s right for you

We offer a range of care and support services to suit your changing needs, from independent living with support, to 24/7 nursing care. Everything we do is designed around the individual, putting the person we care for at the heart of what we do.

As your needs change, we’ll work with you to adapt your care package, so you can feel comfortable knowing you’ll be supported every step of the way.

Why choose Brunelcare for my care and support?

Founded in 1941, Brunelcare has over 80 years of experience providing high-quality housing, care and support for older people in the South West.

We support over 2,000 customers across Bristol, South Gloucestershire and Somerset, and are recognised for our expertise in caring for people living with a dementia.

In addition to our own rigorous self-assessment, we are regulated by the CQC. We also regularly seek our customers’ views and feedback to ensure we maintain a high standard of care and high levels of satisfaction in our services.

As a charity, we do not pay dividends to shareholders. Any profit we make is reinvested back into the services we provide.

Our team

Brunelcare employees are skilled, friendly and qualified. We have designed our recruitment and selection methods to ensure that we recruit a high calibre of employees that suit the culture of each care home.

All of our colleagues are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check before working for us and, once approved, they undergo a full induction programme and receive continuous training.

Our team is extremely experienced at working with older people who may be frail, have a learning disability, or have a long-term illness.
