Description

Heath Farm is a unique day service and care farm setting which offers a large indoor activity centre and 8 acres of farm land. We specialise in socialisation and therapeutic activities for people living with dementia, learning disabilities and other mental health needs. We also have our bespoke ‘Buddies – A Learning Opportunity’ offered in Catering or Land Skill in Animal Care. This will suit those who would like to develop their skills and confidence either for personal and recreational purposes or to an approved level. Our Indoor Activity Centre has a designated arts/crafts room, relaxation and reminiscence room, music studio, pool room, dining room and sitting room. As well we offer an abundance of daily activities and they include: drama, singing/dancing, IT, quizzes, model making, story & song writing, painting, jewellery making and sewing. For people who enjoy fresh air and being outside we offer lots of activities and these include: animal care/petting, woodwork projects, gardening, grass cutting, fruit picking/vegetables, tending to wildlife and bird watching from our hide and collecting eggs from our free range hens. We are able to provide a two course well balanced meal, although you are welcome to bring a packed lunch. We have recently developed a Dementia Carer Support Service for relatives that care for someone living with dementia. Our Community Relations Manager Hayley has over 10 years experience in dementia support and she is able to advise, signpost, help with benefit forms and offer emotional support if you have a family member attending Heath Farm. A referral can be made via a family member, friend or member of the care profession. We accept private paying members, or those with a personal budget. A free taster day is available to all potential members and you are most welcome to arrange a time to visit.

Throughout our 20 yrs experience of working with families and people with dementia we have identified the need to provide quality services for younger people living with dementia. Currently our youngest member was born in 1967 and he spends time with us twice a week. We pride ourselves on the fact our services are flexible and we have the scope and experience when working with our younger dementia team members. It is an important fact that the needs, challenges and support young people with dementia and their families face differ quite considerably to that of our older members. If you would like more information please feel free to speak to us. Please call 01603 772156.
