Ferns Ward

Over recent months the Trust has been working closely with RDaSH (Rotherham, Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust) to provide the Ferns, a 12 bedded ward which provides some patients with specialised mental health care and cognitive rehabilitation needs following an admission to Rotherham Hospital.

The ward, which is at The Woodlands on the Rotherham Hospital site, is specifically aimed at patients with dementia and some other types of cognitive impairment who no longer require an acute hospital bed but would benefit from the rehabilitation for their health and wellbeing.

Cognitive rehabilitation is a multi-disciplinary approach which helps people achieve their optimum level of functioning and wellbeing. This approach provides patients with individualised care and support to help with daily routines, independence and preferences with the overall aim of these patients returning home.

Gemma Spilsbury, Ward Manager at The Ferns Ward, said: “We’ve already received some really positive feedback from carers and patients who have quickly started to regain their independence in a tranquil and therapeutic environment on the ward.”
