Dunkirk Memorial House in Taunton is one of the Royal British Legion’s Care Homes, with a specialist Dementia care wing. Like every one of the Legion's Care Homes, we are exclusive to ex-Service people and their dependents.
Dunkirk Memorial House is situated close to the village of Bishops Lydeard, eight miles from the bustling town of Taunton in Somerset. The only Nursing home in the South West. Spacious and comfortable, it's somewhere our residents can feel is their real home, for as long as they are with us.
Dunkirk Memorial House has 60 rooms, all with en-suite facilities, and a 30 bed Dementia care wing. We know how much being independent means to our residents, so everyone has a key to their own room, as requested. Round-the-clock care from a team of experienced, registered nurses and dedicated care assistants ensures safety and security for our residents.
We have 2 residents that will have their 100th Birthdays in Nov & Dec 2016. One of the residents received the Lord Lieutenant's award in August 2016 at 99 yrs old. He served in Burma in 1939-1945 as a Capt. in the Royal Signals. He also served in the TA prior that. He learnt Computers & Digital Photography at 90 yrs old and gained qualifications in both.
He is one of the many veterans who have great stories to tell and great futures to live. Please give them a future by giving a donation large or small.
Thank you and please share the link, so we can get this great cause go public thorough out the UK. Regards RBL
