McCarthy & Stone Management Services (MSMS) are responsible for looking after our Lifestyle Living and Retirement Living developments, the grounds and services that together make up your new home.

MSMS provide and maintain the emergency-call system, intruder alarm and door camera entry. They also take care of gardening and general upkeep of the outside of the development and all shared areas.

In our Retirement Living schemes, these services include a friendly House Manager, on hand during office hours in the week (which may vary), to take care of the day-to-day running of the development. They can also arrange social events, and our residents choose whether or not to get involved with these.


Care & Support
On-Site Assistance Day-time only
Personal Alarm Monitoring Yes
Domestic Help Medical Appointments, Prescription collection, Tidying
Companionship Arranging Social activities

Our Retirement Living PLUS properties are a great solution if you're looking to free yourself from the burden of managing and maintaining a large family home. When you buy one of our retirement homes in Taunton, you still get to own your own apartment, but you have a little bit of extra help on hand, in case you require it.

The largest town in Somerset, Taunton contains over 1,000 years of religious and military history, including a 10th century monastery and Taunton Castle. Taunton itself has also been home to many historically important events, including the Second Cornish Uprising of 1497 and the coronation of the Duke of Monmouth, who crowned himself king of England in 1685. 

You'll also discover a thriving community spirit here, too. So you'll find it easy to make new friends. Central Taunton is part of the annual West Country Carnival circuit and hosts the Taunton Flower Show. Within Taunton, you'll also find the Eat Wellington Food and Drink Festival, and Fake Festival, which is home to some of the UK's most popular cover bands. 

In the evenings, you'll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy some local theatre, arts and culture. The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre stages regular and varied performances throughout the year, while Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre hosts theatre, dance and comedy shows, as well as a range of performances from schools and colleges. If you're keen to take up a new hobby in your golden years, then you'll also find community classes here and at the Creative Innovation Centre in the town centre. 

Sports fans are well catered for as well. Taunton is home to Somerset County Cricket Club and occasionally hosts the England men's and women's national teams. The town also contains a rugby union club, a rugby league club and a football club. Elsewhere, Taunton Racecourse is only two miles away from the centre of Taunton.
