Regal Care Trading has always had a strong activities programme in some of its homes. We have wanted to build on this by introducing a new Leisure and Lifestyle programme throughout all the homes, which includes a new training package for our Leisure and Lifestyle Coordinators and a centralised social event calendar.
Activity Provision is a central part of our residents and Day Care resident’s lives. We are dedicated to enabling and encouraging the residents to lead an activity based lifestyle. Through supporting our residents to make choices from the time they wake up to the time they go to sleep is encouraging an activity based way of care.
We strive to ensure that our residents; feel appreciated, at all times treated with sensitivity and respect and with an acknowledgement of their own psychological and emotional needs. We encourage and nurture positive and rewarding social relationships whilst acknowledging that our residents are unique individuals.
Part of our Manifesto is our NAPA (National Association for Providers of Activities for Older People) membership. As a member we will be working with them in a shared ethos and commitment to ensure that ‘Activity is at the heart of care for older people’. We value the uniqueness of each older person and are dedicated to delivering expertise in activity provision through delivering the best practice, training, support and raising the status of activity providers
By the end of 2016 we hope to have a NAPA trained Leisure and Lifestyle Coordinator in all of our homes.
