Description

Care and Support West General Meeting and Open Forum Events:

These meetings are free to the first 2 delegates for Care & Support West member organisations. Further member delegates are asked to pay £5.00 to help cover lunch costs. Non members should pay the full price, they can either pay or request an invoice on booking.

ACTIVITIES FOR WELLBEING, NOT JUST ENTERTAINMENT

A must for registered managers and for activity coordinators. We know how important it is for service users' wellbeing that activities are purposeful and meaningful, the centre of the living experience.

This isn't easy at a time of funding squeezes and increased regulation; how does a care or nursing home find the time to get started on delivering meaningful activities for its residents as well as caring for their individual needs on a daily basis?

This meeting will have a slightly different format with over 12 exhibitors as well as speakers and interactive time.

Speakers:

  • Matt ? from Oomph (Our objective is to make people happy)
  • Isobel Jones from Alive! (detail and presenter profiles to folow)
  • Dawn Corse, OT is SG; with the HIT team, and organiser of the SG Activity Coordinator Forum

After the presentations and Q & A / interactive session, delegates will have time to meet and talk to the exhibitors in the room and find out how they interract with service users, what benefits they see arising from their work.

Exhibitors

  • Oomph
  • Alive!
  • Hen Power
  • Growing Support
  • Owl Occasions
  • Wyldewood Arts
  • Dance therapy
  • Music for Health
  • Singers: Naomi Wilmott; John Pendlington
  • Paws for Wellbeing

plus materials from other providers such as Zoolab and Reminiscense Learning

As an ouput of this session, we will have :

  • the usual slides available but also a
  • register of local activity providers and
  • local on-line communications forum for local activity coordinators and managers

We want this meeting to be as interactive as possible, so

# Come armed with questions for Oomph and Alive!

  • How can we make sure it’s not just Entertainment?
  • How shall we develop and maintain independence?
  • What ideas are there for keeping in touch with the local community?
  • How can we encourage inter-generational contact?
  • How much Reminiscence is good for the soul?
  • How can other environments such as Domiciliary Care learn from this and add value to service user experience?

# Learn new things to take away and use in your care setting.

# Bring things you do at your care home to share with other delegates ---- people can learn from you as well you know!!
