The Ferns Nursing Home

Yeovil, BA21 4LW

Ferns Nursing Home is located in Yeovil, in the district of South Somerset which borders Devon, Wiltshire and Dorset right through to the edge of the beautiful Somerset Levels.

The Ferns Nursing Home

Ferns Nursing Home is a modern spacious building situated on St Michaels Avenue not far from St Michael's Church. Our easy-access garden has well-kept lawns and borders with seating areas for those beautiful sunny Somerset days. We also have two raised fish ponds which the residents love to sit by and enjoy their afternoon tea, keeping a close eye on our aquatic friends. With many of our rooms and communal areas having been redecorated in 2022 the home benefits from a bright and airy feel, whilst maintaining a sense of security and safety.

With the town centre only 10 minutes walk and Yeovil Pen Mill train station 5 minutes walk away, visiting is easy and our on-site parking means that friends and families are always welcome.

Message From The Manager

My name is Tracy Rossiter, and I am Manager of The Ferns Nursing Home in Yeovil, Somerset. I am Somerset born and bred and I started my nursing career in 1983 training as an Enrolled nurse at the Somerset School of Nursing. On completion of my training, I then spent the next 13 years in the Operating theatres both in Cornwall and then Somerset, during which time I did my Open Learning Conversion Course to become a RGN level 1. I have had many varied jobs including I.V therapies Sister in the community and a Custody Nurse Practitioner working for a total of eight and a half years with Avon and Somerset Police. I decided to have a change in direction with my career and became a nurse in a nursing home in Wellington and I have not looked back since. I have worked in quite a few homes as Clinical Lead or Deputy Manager honing my skills as I have moved around. Then I came to The Ferns as a nurse at first, then progressing to Clinical Lead and finally the opportunity arose to apply for Manager of the Home, and I decided to apply. I love this home, the residents in here and the staff, and intend to do my utmost to keep all safe, well cared for, treated with dignity and respect. The home faces challenges as do all homes at this time, but I can see the potential here which is really the driving force behind my passion and enthusiasm for The Ferns.
