Turnpike Green is a complex of retirement homes run by Yarlington Homes. It has thirty dwellings; not all for senior citizens. There is no resident warden, but in case of an emergency, a pull cord will alert staff at the control centre; a system which seems to work very well.
It has a communal room with a kitchen is on site, where coffee mornings and other entertainments take place. There is also a washroom and a room for visitors.
Outings and shopping trips are organized by the residents’ committee, with transport supplied by Crewkerne Welfare Transport.
