About our activity sessions

We deliver fun and interactive activity sessions designed to increase the happiness and the health of older people in care. 


Our sessions reach people on all levels: cognitively, physically, emotionally and creatively. The hour long sessions improve wellbeing and increase social interaction among residents and staff, improving relationships within the home and creating a sense of community. 

Drawing on Life Story Work, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy and our own innovative techniques for engaging with people, our sessions include: music and poetry, art and dance, guided reminiscence, intergenerational, horticultural, sensory and energising activities.
