FARE deliver an average of two sessions per week from our building for older residents living in our community as well as a further three in Blairtummock and two from our neighbourhood base at Wellpark.
During these sessions, participants get involved in a range of activities including easy exercise sessions, arts and crafts, knitting, bingo, baking, board games and dominoes.
The programme allows the adults to participate in various trips including tea dances, seaside visits, barge trips and also had Christmas lunch in FARE and at the Tennents Brewery in Wellpark.
In addition to these adult services FARE staff also carry out home visits aimed at vulnerable or isolated adults who require some extra support.
Visits take place and the support required on these visits varies from case to case, often including having a friendly chat with another adult, going on shopping trips for individuals unable to leave their homes and also linking in with other agencies when specialised help is required.
Through the home visits, we aim to reduce isolation, reconnect people to services and the community and, where possible, integrate them into our activity programme.
