Kathleen Chambers House

With 150 years of experience providing world renowned support for people with sight problems, our homes have been designed to make life easy, in a warm, homely environment.

Located in the popular seaside resort of Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, we aim to promote independence and a community feel, while respecting your individual needs, all in a beautiful and peaceful setting.

About the home

Our aim is to make your transition into our home, as smooth as possible. All of our residents benefit from a tailored support plan, so you can be sure you will get the right level of care for your needs. Whether you choose to stay with us for respite, short-term care, or plan to stay with us for longer, your needs will be fully assessed and a care plan agreed.

For your leisure time, our social programmes are developed in conjunction with residents, so you can continue to do the things you enjoy. When it comes to meal times, our chefs are able to adapt our delicious menus to fit in with any individual requirements you may have.

We have created a brochure for you to download, which provides further information about the home.
