What are the benefits of your activity sessions?

The effects of regular physical activities can vary greatly depending on a person’s physical and mental ability.

  • Rise in confidence
  • Improvement in good moods, general wellbeing and happiness
  • Anxiety and stress levels lowered
  • Increased interaction amongst residents – during and after the sessions
  • Reduction in loneliness
  • Positive outlook on matters
  • Energy levels are elevated
  • Eased muscular and joint pain after gentle movement
  • Better balance and reduced number of falls

How do I find out if you operate in my area?

We are currently based in Worcester, just off the M5, with easy access to the rest of the country. We employ activity providers across the UK and are in the process of expanding our team. If you would be interested in us coming to you, please get in touch and we can arrange for your local activity provider to discuss the next steps.

How much does a session cost?

Working with charities and community groups, as well as care homes, we can offer different levels of support. Please send us a message with your enquiry and we will be able to provide accurate costings for your requirements.

How long do your sessions last?

All of our sessions last 1 hour. We recommend that the optimum amount of sessions per week is 2-3, depending on the type of organisation.

Can we try your services before we commit?

We offer a trial session for care homes with a special introductory rate. Please contact us to find out more.

We have limited space in our care home. Can you still come to see us?

We adapt our activities to work in both small and large spaces. If it’s a sunny day, we love to take activities outdoors where possible (it’s a nice change of scenery for elderly residents, too). If you’re concerned about where the activities would be hosted, get in touch and we would be happy to arrange a visit to assess the situation.

I struggle with basic movement. Are your activities still for me?

All of our activities are tailored to meet each individuals needs. When working with a group, we will always ensure that no matter what your age or level of ability, there will be something for everyone to take part it.

How many people do you work with per session?

We generally work with groups of between 5-30 people. We understand that turnout on the day can vary greatly and so will adapt our activities to cater for this.

Are all of your staff certified to work with elderly people?

Yes. All of our staff are fully insured, and have passed the necessary DBS (formerly CRB) checks. Should you require assistance with filling out risk assessments just let us know.

What sort of activities do you deliver in each session?

Click here to see a few of the activities we provide. This is by no means a definitive list though. We love to re-invent the wheel, create new and exciting activities, and invite people attending our sessions to make suggestions, too.

We already employ activity co-coordinators in our care home. Can you help them to plan sessions?

Yes. The best thing to do is to talk to us directly to see how we can help you with this.

We do provide activity writing services, however we recommend that your activity co-ordinators have sound knowledge of how movement can affect a person and when to recognise a person’s physical limitations before conducting any activity sessions on their own.
