National Institute for Care Excellence (NICE) says…
“ …Organisations providing care and support (should) ensure that opportunities for activity are available and that staff are trained to offer spontaneous and planned opportunities for older people in care homes to participate in activity that is meaningful to them and that promotes their health and mental wellbeing.
Local authorities and other commissioning services should ensure that they commission services from providers that can produce evidence of activities that are undertaken within the care home and can demonstrate that staff are trained to offer spontaneous and planned opportunities for older people in care homes to participate in activity that is meaningful to them.

‘Making Activity Count’
Extract taken from Skills for Care (S4C) website
“It’s widely known that the provision of activity in a social care setting has many positive impacts on the health and wellbeing of people who need care and support. From keeping active to overcoming loneliness, improving wellbeing and even reducing the rate of falls.
The benefits of good activity provision don’t stop with the person needing care and support, the staff will benefit too. Staff being more engaged in the clients’ wellbeing can impact positively on their job satisfaction levels which in turn improves staff morale
