Ferns is a registered nursing home approximately one mile from Yeovil town centre, providing care for elderly people, under the constant supervision of trained staff. After undergoing Somerset County Council's rigorous appraisal and audit process the home was confirmed as meeting the high standards which are required in order for the Council to place residents at the home.

Ferns originally opened in 1993 and following various refurbishments it now has 39 beds. All of the bedrooms are arranged for single occupancy and are light, airy and tastefully decorated. Each bedroom has en-suite toilet and wash basin facilities, a television aerial point, nurse call, multiple electric sockets, a mirror, bedside light and a shaver socket. The large airy lounge has a computer and a Wii for residents use.

The environment at Ferns is informal and the care structured to individual needs. Meals are prepared on the premises by our catering staff who follow a menu of fresh homely cooking with special diets being catered for.

"Please accept my sincere thanks for all the care and attention you gave to my Dad during his time with you. Best wishes to you all."
