Six small images showing the old kitchen at Fen House and the new kitchen underneath.

Everyone at Fen House is excited about their new kitchen that allows service users greater independence and more control.

The Activities of Daily Living (ADL) kitchen has been completely transformed into a modern space with increased accessibility. The new kitchen features a rise-and-fall hob and sink, so that individuals with mobility impairments can use the kitchen safely and easily while sitting down or using a wheelchair. The new worktops were kindly provided by local business Complete Kitchens Ely, who invited staff and service users to the showroom to choose the perfect worktop.

The ADL kitchen is an important part of the rehabilitation process, allowing service users to practice everyday activities such as preparing meals and cleaning, and helping them to prepare for life after rehabilitation.

Occupational Therapy Assistant, Louise Bowers, said “We are thankful to all the generous donations and all the hard work from everyone involved. We’ve been able to make big changes to this environment, and sourcing the right equipment means improved accessibility and more independence for those who have mobility difficulties.”
