Our team of experts
Finn Farm Lodge is staffed 24 hours a day by an experienced and dedicated staff team who are selected for their skills in helping people with PWS achieve positive outcomes.
We also work closely with local community teams including GPs, chiropodists, dentists and dietitians, as well as other health professionals to provide the maximum support possible to our residents.
As part of their support plans, each resident will have a house day which is specifically designed to help develop their independence skills. These skills include:
We also help people to rebuild their confidence by supporting them to access a variety of community based activities and work placements.
We support exercise based activities which is paramount for individuals with PWS as they have low muscle tone.
With a company vehicle to access wider community facilities, we encourage individuals to get involved in a range of activities out of the service. This includes going to the beach which is only 5 minutes away from Finn Farm Lodge and to also visit the local sports centre where residents can go swimming, use the gym and play table tennis.
The staff will organise a wide range of daily activities both in and out of the home which are planned in conjunction with the wishes of our residents. This includes:
- Arts and crafts
- Table tennis
