Meet our staff

Our staff run Green Lane House on a day to day basis, providing two good quality home-cooked meals every day which are served in the dining room.

A voluntary committee is responsible for the well being of our residents and overseeing the houses. Overall responsibility for the Society's activities rests with an Executive Committee of voluntary Trustees drawn from public and private sectors.

Staff and volunteers also provide support and companionship to residents. The staff at our homes are experienced in dealing with elderly people and are very empathetic to their needs.

We offer various activities and events for the residents to take part in. Families are encouraged to attend social activities when they can.

Some of our activities have included:

  • Reminiscence sessions with local museum
  • Christmas party every year for the residents and familes

The residents are encouraged to join other Abbeyfield Wessex events such as:

  • Boat trips
  • Theatre trips
  • Lunches and afternoon teas at local garden centres

Resident’s birthdays are always celebrated. We make a homemade birthday cake and welcome family and friends to join for a coffee or lunch to celebrate this important day together. Residents are also encouraged to take active roles in garden by planting pots and light weeding and maintenance if they wish.
