West Abbey Care Home in Yeovil

Here at West Abbey, we provide high quality 24-hour nursing and residential care for older people, including those with dementia in our innovative Memory Lane Community. Alongside this, we also have a facility for younger people who are living with physical disabilities. All of our luxurious rooms are wheelchair accessible and have en-suite facilities. Alongside this, residents have access to our onsite hairdresser, physiotherapy treatment and a variety of entertainment and activities organised by our activities team, such as gardening, baking and regular outings.

West Abbey partnered with Life Circles in 2012, which was was a two-year collaborative project aimed at supporting the life-long creativity of older people living in care settings, through innovative, imaginative and inspiring community dance practice.

We are always happy to discuss how we can meet your care needs, so why not give us a call and arrange a visit to experience West Abbey for yourself?

General Manager

Hi, my name is Helen, and I am the General Manager here at West Abbey. I hope you find what you're looking for on our website.

I have been a nurse for over three decades now and am as passionate about it today as I was thirty years ago. I will always strive to ensure that both my team and I deliver the best care we can. 

I believe that it's a privilege to care for another person's loved one - especially the older people in our homes - we owe them so much.
