Alive is the UK’s leading charity enriching the lives of older people in care and training their carers.
Alive Clubs are a positive way of supporting those living in a care home and older people living in care to come together and enjoy activity and friendship.
Alive provides Training and Coaching to all care staff who are working in the care sector. Our courses are designed to empower, support and equip carers, whatever capacity they are in.
Alive has a range of volunteering opportunities from volunteering in care homes, community gardens or supporting our office staff.
From touch to technology – Alive and Direct
The COVID-19 pandemic has meant we have all had to adapt and change the way we work. For Alive, we have gone from working face to face with older people to using technology at a greater depth to stay connected with care homes residents and those still living at home. Using ZOOM and teleconference facilities we are delivering remote sessions and seeing incredible results. It is a privilege to facilitate sessions and hear how older people are valuing these connections and support.
