Wellbeing

Our team is committed to supporting our residents to mange their health and wellbeing. We want our residents to enjoy their time with us, getting the most out of life and maintaining life skills which support independence and mobility.

Positive wellbeing means experiencing an overall feeling of happiness and satisfaction with life and is achieved through being able to do those things that bring you pleasure and contentment.

Wellbeing levels can be enhanced by taking part in a balance of activities that promote being physically active, mentally stimulated and socially connected.

Our Care Programmes focus on the individual, their interests and abilities and we create the plan accordingly. We might plan to go shopping once a week, or visit the beach, or watch a tennis match. Whatever the individual’s interests we work to find activities that they will enjoy, keeping hobbies going and finding new ones that promote wellbeing.

“I’m very happy to be here, the care is good.”

Mental Stimulation

Independence

Working to maintain balance, strength and co-ordination, improving posture and increasing flexibility is key to leading a more independent life. Every week, Ed our personal trainer visits the home and provides exercises for all abilities. We also offer our residents the opportunity to get out and about in the community as much as possible.

Engaging in favourite hobbies, or discovering hidden talents at something new stimulates and challenges the mind. We offer a range of activities to appeal to different people and work with families and residents to understand what might appeal. We load each resident an Alexa with their favourite music and talking books for relaxation which helps to balance the mind and body.

Spending time with friends and loved ones keeps our residents connected to their past and present. We have an open door policy with no set visiting times – visitors are welcome whenever they please.

Residents enjoy daily social events, such as pet therapy, visits from the local nursery or outings into the community. This ranges from shopping to trips to local tea rooms, boxing gym, the local nursery or pedalling along the seafront with Pedal People. 

Nutrition is an important factor in wellbeing, our chef cooks homemade, nutritious food with local produce, always offering alternatives, and always catering to individual dietary requirements.

We also involve residents where we can in making menu choices, and choosing the shopping each week asking what they might like for the week ahead. We have held cheese nights where residents can vote on their favourite cheeses which we then have available at mealtimes.

My mother only spent a short time with you but during that time she was shown nothing but kindness and assistance from you and your staff. I have frankly been amazed at the way they have all put themselves out to help my mum and done it all in such a happy and helpful manner.

I want to say a very big thank you to everyone at Fairdene for the kindness and care you gave to my cousin during his final two years. It can’t have been an easy task as he slowly became more incapacitated. I was impressed by your patience and attention to his quite considerable needs.

From the moment he arrived you made our loved one feel loved and respected, and within a very short time he looked at Fairdene as his home, and never once looked back to his former house or indicated a desire to be anywhere else. The dedication and kindness you and your staff show to your residents is a joy to witness, and your seemingly unbreakable patience, even at the most trying of times, is truly impressive.

Just to say your care and kindness you showed to Marie meant a lot to her and myself and I know she enjoyed her time there with you at Fairdene Lodge. Very best wishes to you all.
