Enter and View: Magnolia Ward, Yeovil

Our report following a visit to Magnolia Ward in Yeovil, which has 14 beds, providing assessment and treatment for older people suffering from dementia and other confused states.

The ward provides services for older people who live in the South Somerset and Mendip/Frome areas.

This visit forms part of a wider project running from November 2015 to July 2016. Our Enter and View Representatives visited each of the nine wards in Somerset that provide treatment for people with acute mental health issues.


  1. The ward look at providing movable trolleys or cases containing objects that are tactile or stimulate memory and conversation.
  2. The activities list and good practice examples included in this report (appendix 6.2 & 6.3) be shared with staff and patients and families to see if it inspires further ideas for activities.

This report was produced by the previous Healthwatch Somerset service provider, The Care Forum.
