At Farm Lane, we offer activities that are based around residents’ interests. We encourage people to retain the work skills they developed throughout their career.

For our ‘life history’ activity, we design activities that help residents to reconnect with the work they used to do. And through our Activity Based Care approach, we support residents to practice daily living skills and to stay as independent as possible. Many residents enjoy helping out in our gardens and making sure our bird feeders are well stocked. Others like lending a hand with food preparation tasks like getting the ingredients ready for making fruity milkshakes.

Activities for everyone

Some of our regular activities include painting, crafts, gentle exercise, flower arranging, general knowledge quizzes, sing-alongs, bingo and food tasting. We have a regular film night and professional singers and musicians often come to the home to entertain residents. We also take part in a local ‘bridging the gap’ scheme where children and young people from local schools and colleges visit the home to show residents how to use computers and technologies like Skype.

We like to get out and about as much as we can, by taking trips to local shops and places of interest, and we also enjoy going out for pub lunches.

Enjoying good food

Mealtimes are a special time of day at Farm Lane and we always make sure there’s music playing in the background. We love to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, and our chef creates special menus to mark cultural occasions that are important to residents.

Services and support

We have a GP here three days a week and a consultant specialising in the care of older people comes in twice a week. The community mental health team visits regularly and many other healthcare professionals, from opticians to occupational therapists, pop in to see us on a regular basis.

A hairdresser comes to the home every Tuesday and we offer manicures as one of our regular activities. The nearby Church of England church holds a monthly service in our multi-faith room and we also have regular visits from a priest. We support residents to attend services in the community too.

A part of the community

Farm Lane plays an active role in the local area. We’re often invited to attend school plays and we have an excellent relationship with a nearby secondary school – pupils visit the home every weekday to spend time talking with residents and to take part in activities.
