Community Involvement (FaNs)

Good friends and neighbours enjoy each others’ company and help each other out. Sometimes it’s just a shared joke or a friendly word. Sometimes it’s a common interest that’s twice as much fun when it’s shared. Sometimes it’s a helping hand at the right time. Always, it’s caring about the people around us. For most of us, that’s one of the best things in life and we know it’s important both for happiness and for health.

We believe that the people who live in care homes are our friends and neighbours no less than anyone else who lives in our neighbourhood. But even in the best of homes and however good the staff, it can be too easy for people to lose that part of their lives. That’s where FaNs comes in.
