We are safely able to support new residents and accommodate safe visiting in secure designated visitor areas in all our homes. For more information, please speak with the Home Manager.

Fairlawn care home is based in the heart of Ferndown, making it a hub for the community and providing residents and relatives with cafes, shops, restaurants and facilities within walking distance.

The care home has large, bright lounges for residents to socialise with friends and relatives, while quiet rooms overlooking the landscaped garden provide peace and relaxation when you want to watch the world go by with a cup of tea and a good book.


Fairlawn has 60 en-suite bedrooms, spread over three floors to ensure personalised care and support. Facilities include an on-site hair salon, whilst assistance is provided for GP, dentist, optician and chiropodist appointments.

We know looking for a care home can be a difficult process, but you are not alone. Please fill out an enquiry form or give us a call and we would be happy to guide you through the process, answer any question and talk you through life at Fairlawn.

We have adapted our admissions process to meet the challenges of COVID-19 and help new and existing residents stay safe. You can find out more about these changes in our Assisi Admissions Plan by clicking here.

We put our residents at the heart of everything we do, and know that no two are the same. That is why we get to know residents and their life stories, hobbies and interests, helping us to create events around their likes.

Our activities team organises daily events and outings designed to bring everyone together in a fun and friendly atmosphere. We welcome regular visits from the AFC Bournemouth’s Community Sports Trust, take trips down memory lane with tailored reminiscence activities, and tailor outings around residents’ interests and life stories, such as the veteran from the Royal Tank Corps who had always wanted to go to The Tank Museum.

The Daily Sparkle

We are also supported by The Daily Sparkle, a newspaper and app featuring news stories from the past and familiar activities. Using these resources has opened up conversations for our less sociable residents. Click here to find out more.

Look below for some of the things we have been up to recently.

Fairlawn dining

“Getting to know the residents and building up a relationship around food feels fantastic.” – Steve Edwards, Fairlawn chef

Meals are more than just the food on the plate, they bring people together. At Fairlawn, residents meet for meal times in our relaxed and comfortable dining rooms, with wholesome, well-balanced meals.

We talk to residents to help create flexible menus around their likes and needs, also working within any special dietary requirements. Snacks and afternoon teas are also available to residents.

Angie I’Anson – Acting Home Manager

Angie I'Anson

I have worked at Poole Hospital and Shaftesbury Prison as a nurse, but my real passion has always been to work in care homes with the elderly. It is my dream job and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I take pride in everything I do and have a real drive for delivering excellent elderly care.

Working in care homes since 2004, I have more than a decade of experience in care and have more recently been supporting Home Managers to drive improvements in their care homes.
