On Gould ward we care for patients who are living with dementia and have broken a bone, typically after a fall. If you are admitted to Gould ward, you will stay with us while you have your operation and during your recovery. We have occupational therapists and physiotherapists to help with rehabilitation and our activity facilitators will work with you to keep you active, whether it be with activities on the ward or a trip to the onsite cafés for coffee and cake. We are experienced in caring for older people and those who have dementia so we can make sure you are well supported during your stay.
Later, when you are better and ready to leave Gould ward, we discharge you back to your home. If you need more time to recover, you may be transferred to one of our community hospitals (usually at Bridgwater) or a local care home, for more therapy and support.
Visiting Times: Visitors are welcome between 10am to 9pm – seven days a week. If you have relatives who wish to visit or stay outside of normal visiting times please discuss this with the nursing team.
Number of visitors to a bed: For the safety and comfort of all our patients we restrict visitors to 2 at a time, but do ask the nursing team if more visitors need to come in.
