About Glastonbury

We want people who come and live with us to make the most of life. 

Our friendly home offers a lifestyle for older people with specific nursing requirements, together with the option to call upon additional support to suit changing needs. We are also known for our expertise in providing care to those living with a dementia.

Located in a sheltered close on the edge of Glastonbury, our care home has a relaxed and homely feel.  The rooms look onto private, secure gardens with plenty of areas to sit. We even have a view of Glastonbury Tor!

Day care and respite care is also available at our home.

Joanna Crago, Care Home Manager

I am a Registered Nurse and completed my Level 5 qualification in 2015. I qualified in South Africa specialising in Midwifery and Cardiology.  I achieved a Diploma qualification working with Dementia Care Matters.  I joined Brunelcare in 2017.  At Glastonbury Care Home (team pictured, me in white top and left of the sign) we are here to support people with maintaining their independence for as long as they can.  We all share the same passion about the care that we provide.  I believe that everyone is important and should be truly valued.

Care quality commission

We're rated Good, with Outstanding for our caring approach

CQC inspection report states:

“At the last inspection we rated this section [caring] as outstanding because of the person-centred and compassionate culture which staff created. Staff encouraged people to make and maintain friendships and promoted a family type environment where everyone was respected and cared for. At this inspection we found the extremely caring culture continued and the staff and management had built on this to make sure people continued to feel valued and had opportunities to express themselves.”
