Finn Farm Lodge

Located in a tranquil area of Folkestone on the Kent coast, Finn Farm Lodge provides leading person-centred support and facilities for 6 females and males aged between 18-65 with Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS).

We offer a bespoke, 24/7 residential service in a safe, stimulating and rewarding environment. Our aim is for each individual to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to develop as much independence as the syndrome permits.

The service provides:

  • 6 en-suite bedrooms
  • Modern communal areas including a lounge, fully equipped kitchen and secure garden
  • Innovative person-centred support programmes in a safe and caring environment
  • Positive behaviour support
  • A multidisciplinary community team
  • Food and dietary control
  • Access to education and voluntary/paid employment opportunities
  • Interaction within Craegmoor’s communication strategy “Your Voice”
  • A company vehicle to access wider community facilities

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.

Independence skills

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:

  • Budgeting
  • Cleaning
  • Gardening
  • Laundry
  • Shopping 

We also help people to rebuild their confidence by supporting them to access a variety of community based activities and work placements.

Leisure activities

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
  • Cinema
  • Football
  • Gym
  • Shopping
  • Swimming
  • Table tennis
  • Walking
