Our Care Services

If you are looking for elderly care for you or a loved one, you have come to the right place. Our family have been caring for generations – and it shows.

Our residents are encouraged to enjoy the life they have always enjoyed and to discover what life has to offer. Our family community is engaging and responsive to the needs of the individual, putting you and your loved ones at the centre of everything we do.

  • Skilled and friendly team: Our team here are loyal, happy and above all else committed to the best care for our residents.
  • Residential Care: Our care is designed to help people continue living a normal life, but with help on hand when they require it, in a family-run home-from-home.
  • Respite Care: For people who require short-term care or would like to try-before-you-buy. It’s the same service as you would expect full time, but for as long as you want.
  • Dementia Care: We are experienced in helping people living with dementia to carry on anormal life for as long as they can, adapting to an individual’s changing needs.

The home and facilities

Our home has been in the family for a long time and we have embarked on a complete refurbishment project in that time. Here are some of the facilities you can enjoy.

Dining Lounge

Mealtimes are always a social affair at Farthings and we positively encourage this in our fabulous dining room. That said, residents are free to take their meals where they like


Our outdoor space is safely contained but still open and airy, given where we are. There are flower beds, a veg garden and running water for the senses!

En-Suite Rooms

All of our rooms have been refurbished tastefully and are all en suite, meaning everyone has their own privacy as much as they like.


Feeling good about yourself doesn’t change just because you’re older than you were.. From hairdressing to nails, it’s the foundation of your wellbeing.

stimulating care home activities


Staying active is a large part of staying well and it’s for that reason that we have our own dedicated person.

Whether it’s just a social chat, or a group game of cards, the stimulation that everyday activity provides is key to a person’s wellbeing. But we always go further than that, holding our own family events. Get in touch to see what’s happening this week.
