Our person-centred approach
We have a warm and friendly team who enjoy getting to know each resident’s needs and their hobbies and interests. It means we can tailor our care to each individual. For example, all of the activities we offer at the care home are based around residents’ lifelong hobbies as well as other things they tell us they like doing.
Franklin House residents can get involved in a range of activities from art classes to reading clubs and enjoy performances from the musicians and professional entertainers who regularly come to visit. We also enjoy going on regular outings with our residents to the cinema, nearby parks around West Drayton, as well as attractions further into London or around the home counties.

What makes Franklin House special?
At our care home in West Drayton, we put our residents at the centre of everything we do and believe they should be free to see their friends and family whenever they want. Visitors can pop in to the home whenever they like, and we’ve also installed Skype on a computer so that residents can stay in touch with loved ones wherever they are in the world.
Our dedicated team regularly hold wonderful events for residents. Our 1950s cream tea afternoon went down a treat with residents. We paid tribute to the era with golden oldies sung by Martyn Halsey, as well as enjoying tea and cakes with friends and family and a visit from a local councillor.

Working together with Age UK Hillingdon
2014 was a special year for Age UK Hillingdon as we celebrated 25 years of providing a wide range of services to older people in the London Borough of Hillingdon to help keep them empowered, informed and independent for as long as possible. As our population lives longer and medical treatment advances, it is ever more important that services adapt to ever changing needs.
We like to emphasise the positive aspects of ageing – socialising, exercising, eating well, staying fit for the future and helping people to stay in their own homes as long as possible. However, we know only too well that for every positive there is a negative and we are there to help people when they need us most – when they come out of hospital, when they have need financial advice, when they need a friend. Whatever situation you might find yourself in, we will be able to help, or direct you to the appropriate organisation who can.
We are very much looking forward to our partnership with Care UK at The Burroughs, Franklin House and Whitby Dene. There is such an obvious link with the aims of both organisations and we truly believe that this is the start of a very special relationship which we hope will continue long into the future.
Thank you once again for your support.
