the flourishing town of Yeovil and the beautiful historic abbey town of Sherborne. Our home lies within its own beautiful gardens and provides a "home from home" setting
We aim to maintain links and relationships with family, friends and our local community and to provide a friendly and stimulating atmosphere, that is open and is able to give residents choice in how they wish to live.
Our dedicated, competent and well trained staff provide the necessary care to meet individual needs and requirements and are on hand 24 hours a day. We ensure that all aspects of each residents, physical, mental health, dementia, emotional, and social care needs are met and we encourage residents to be involved in their care-planning and the running of their home.
We provide accommodation and care for both sexes aged sixty-five and over including those with dementia. A maximum of twenty-two residents live in our main building and have varying care needs. In our separate one bedroom cottage “Owls Nest” the residents are more independent and have lower care requirements that need minimal support and supervision. "Owls Nest" is available for single occupancy or couples / partners only. All nurse call and emergency provisions are linked directly to the main building. It is envisaged that if the care needs of these residents increase they will be offered accommodation in the main building. All residents living in “Owls Nest” have access to the same care and activity facilities offered in the main house. Staff assistance in Owls Nest is provided on a risk assessed individual need basis and night care cover is always provided.
Fir Villa’s award winning care & expertise is recognised by many in the care professional and local community, who have used our services, as one of the best care providers...
You can sense the wonderful, happy atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. The staff are beyond caring & helpful. They go the extra mile & then some. They truly do care it’s that simple. They have time, not only to do their job to the highest standard but also, they have time to chat to the residents as though they are human beings and not some bothersome inconvenience, as I have seen in so many other homes.
Reception Staff at local GP surgery have said that we are their favourite care home that they deal with on a day to day basis as we are the nicest, most efficient and polite staff members they have contact with and it is always a real pleasure.
RC Church member who attends weekly to do communion for resident stated that she had known the resident for several years including at the home she was in prior to Fir Villa. She said she had never seen the resident so content and happy and eager to join other residents in the communal lounge for company and activities as when she was resident at her former home she seldom if ever left the confines of her room.
I haven’t been to Fir Villa since my sister Diane came to stay with you but gradually she has become stronger and able to cope with life better. Thank You so much for all your help
