What's on offer?

Our experienced and dedicated engagement team will work with you and your organisation to develop a tailor-made programme that every resident will benefit from.

We believe in encouraging individuals to continue a fulfilling and healthy lifestyle and will work with you to choose suitable activities. Whether you are looking to build strength, reminisce through dance and music or introduce residents to each other, we’ve got you covered.

We believe that it’s important for a person in care to continue with their day to day activities, interests and routines and keep themselves occupied by doing something they enjoy. Creative activities can help residents overcome anxieties and develop trust and self-confidence. 

Creating a relaxed environment for your residents allows them to enjoy a selection of indoor activities. Your residents have the option to choose the activities they would like to participate in with no pressure or expectations. Our sessions encourage mobility by stimulating muscles, enhance cognition by challenging the mind, and develop social interaction with those living and working in the home. All our sessions can be tailored to suit residents’ specific needs, abilities and levels of fitness and can be run within your home.

Some activities on offer include:

  • Boccia
  • Bowls
  • Chair exercises
  • Sitting volleyball
  • Skittles
  • Target games
  • Plus many others

As welcoming, homely and attractive care homes in Hampshire are, a key component of care home services is the need for residents to continue to engage with life outdoors.

Our outdoor activities are usually enjoyed as a half or full day trip and can include:

  • Sailing
  • Climbing
  • Archery
  • Pond-dipping
  • Nature trials
  • Mindfulness
  • Plus many others

As we age we lose muscle mass, this is sometimes referred to as Sarcopenia. Keeping our muscle mass is vital for activities of daily living (ADL’s) and to maintain good health and well-being. The good news is we can continue to maintain muscle strength and endurance using resistance exercises in a chair based setting.

Our regular care home residents report the following benefits of chair based exercise including: 

  • Increased flexibility and strength
  • Increased coordination
  • Increased circulation
  • Reduced risk of falls because chair based exercises improve posture and balance
  • Increased confidence and self esteem

We’re proud to be able to provide care homes with the opportunity to hire a qualified and experienced Active Nation team member to work as an Activities Coordinator at the care home on a daily basis. The package is available on a full or part-time contract and the affordable price makes it very accessible for many homes within Hampshire and Dorset.

Care homes often praise our activities co-ordinators for their ability to create trusting relationships and engage all residents in activities.

An in-house activities coordinator offers many opportunities for residents to engage in additional activities such as baking, day trips, outdoor activities, theatre/musical entertainment, film afternoons, board games and many more, at an affordable cost.
