Grovelands is a purpose-built care home providing residential and dementia care. Completed in 2007, the home is situated in a quiet residential area near the heart of Yeovil close to shops, cafés and other services.
Complete with pleasant grounds, Grovelands provides a comfortable and friendly environment for our residents and their guests.
Grovelands' accommodation is divided into four areas; three with 15 bedrooms and one with 16 single bedrooms. Rooms are spacious with en-suite toilet and are fully furnished to a high standard. The four areas have separate communal areas, allowing our residents to enjoy cosy and intimate living arrangements.
We have a dedicated area within our home that provides safety and security for residents living with dementia. The wing has been designed to provide residents with the freedom to live as independent lives as possible within the security and support of the home. Our staff are specifically trained in this specialised care, so they understand the needs of our residents and can support them accordingly.
At Grovelands, we have an activities co-ordinator who organises a variety of activities for our residents to take part in. These range from arts and crafts, to music and our popular gardening club.
We have a hair salon and shop for our residents' use.
We have IT facilities available for all to use including Wi-Fi and Skype, which can be used to maintain contact with friends and relatives that may not live locally.
We benefit from our own kitchen and catering staff, with meals prepared daily on-site, to suit a wide range of dietary requirements. Our staff team are always happy to help anyone wanting to use these services.
We offer 24-hour care or day care options which are provided by our dedicated and experienced team of staff. All Somerset Care staff receive full induction and ongoing training to ensure that we provide the best possible service. Many of our staff hold NVQ (QCF) qualifications, these ensure that we keep up-to-date with the latest recommended practices. Our commitment to training and investment in our staff has led to us being awarded the prestigious Investor in People (IIP) award.
The Grovelands team were delighted to be announced as the winners of Outstanding Care Team at the Care Focus Awards (2017).
