1. Fantastic activities

Each of Lilian Faithfull’s care homes has an activities coordinator who makes sure there’s always a busy programme of things for residents to enjoy.

From gardening clubs and crafts to exercise groups, guest speakers, musician performances and games, each activity coordinator makes sure residents can do something that interests them.


2. Weekly bus service

At Lilian Faithful Care homes, residents are encouraged to live enriching lives with plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding area, and also chances to be independent if they’re able to.

The handy fleet of mini buses means that residents can head out on day trips to some of Gloucestershire’s best spots.


3. Annual holiday

Going above and beyond to offer residents things to look forward to and experiences like no other, Lilian Faithfull’s care homes organise an annual holiday for residents.

With a trip scheduled to Scotland in 2020, previous care home holidays have included Weston-super-Mare.


4. Support for everyone

Recognising each resident’s need is different, Lilian Faithfull Care offers support for those who stay in their bedroom, either due to their health or preference.

Keeping residents company, staff at Lilian Faithfull care homes can play board games with residents in their rooms or simply read to them. Families of residents are also welcome to join in with any activities or suggest new ones.


5. Delicious meals

Preparing all of its meals in house, Lilian Faithfull’s catering team prides itself on serving fresh and nutritious meals for its residents. An expert dietician also oversees the menus to make sure they meet the needs of residents.

With regularly changing menus, residents can also choose where to dine or invite their friends or guests to dine with them. The care homes also host birthday parties and special occasions.

6. Fantastic environment

Owning all of its care homes, Lilian Faithfull Care provides residents with stability. Access to fantastic housekeeping, laundry and maintenance teams mean residents can also benefit from the very best support.

With each home offering beautiful gardens, residents can enjoy a lovely space to relax alfresco, or even take up some gardening.


7. Cycling without age scheme

Thanks to local volunteers and a brand new trishaw bike, residents at Lilian Faithfull Care can enjoy a nostalgic bike ride in Cheltenham.

Complete with a cosy blanket cover and two seats, the trishaw can used to take residents and a carer, or even a resident and their relative out for what can be a really memorable experience.
