Highmead Farm is more than just a rehabilitation centre. It is a supported work environment designed to empower individuals with disabilities, mental health issues, and those recovering from illness. We strongly believe in the power of purposeful roles within the farm environment, as they bring a sense of well-being and self-worth that many individuals may have never experienced before.
Our farm-based rehabilitation centre recognises the therapeutic potential of nature and animals for stroke survivors. Interacting with animals, working in the soil, and immersing oneself in the natural surroundings have proven to have positive effects on mental and emotional well-being. We aim to harness these benefits to enhance the stroke rehabilitation journey for our clients.
By combining our expertise in stroke rehabilitation with the natural environment of Highmead Farm, we provide a comprehensive evidence-based approach to stroke recovery. The serene and supportive atmosphere of the farm helps create an ideal environment for healing and personal growth.
Just as with our existing programmes, the stroke rehabilitation services at our new centre will be tailored to meet the specific needs and goals of each individual. Our team of experienced professionals, along with the therapeutic aspects of the farm, will work together to develop personalised stroke rehabilitation plans that address physical, cognitive, and emotional aspects of recovery.
We are excited about the opportunity to expand our services and reach even more stroke survivors and individuals in need of stroke rehabilitation after their NHS treatment finishes. Our new rehabilitation centre at Highmead Farm will provide a unique and supportive environment for those seeking to regain independence, improve their quality of life, and receive continued help with stroke recovery.
