We specialise in providing care to older people, care which comes in many different forms.  As a small care home with 22 en-suite bedrooms our team really get to know all residents, understand their needs, and encourage social friendships amongst residents living at Farthings.  Below are some of the different types of care we offer:

Dementia Care

Around 850,000 people are living with dementia in the UK (www.alzheimers.org.uk).  All of our staff undergo dementia training, and several have received additional training provided by Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.  Our aim is to support our residents to maintain their dignity and quality of life through a detailed understanding of their social history.  By doing this we are able to support our resident to live the life they choose, we have an activities programme available for everyone and we can support our residents in our internal courtyard area which also features a fishpond with running water.

Residential Care

The most common feedback we receive from family members is that Farthings is a ‘home from home’ our aim is for this to always be the ‘feeling’ when living and visiting Farthings.  As a smaller home our friendly team really get to know all residents, and their loved ones.  Residential care includes own en-suite bedroom, nutritional home cooked meals cooked onsite, housekeeping, and personal support (such as help with hygiene, bathing, medication management) as well as access to GP services. There is an activities programme available in groups or on a 1-2-1 basis dependant on preference.

Respite Care

Caregiving for an elderly, ill, or disabled family member is a demanding job and no one is equipped to do it alone, respite services can provide a vital break (www.helpguide.org).  Respite Care can really offer support, providing that much needed temporary rest so the caregiver can take a step back for a short period to take care of their own health needs, socialise with friends, perhaps catch up on sleep or take a well-deserved holiday knowing their loved one is well-cared for.  Respite care can be planned or unplanned, in cases of emergency.  Respite care offers an ideal opportunity to socialise with different people and forge relationships with other residents within the home.  There are various mentally and physically stimulating activities available for all residents.  In time, respite care can prepare a person to have a better transition into a full-time life in a care home.
