Activity Co-ordinator drop-in sessions

Age Cymru will be hosting fortnightly Activity Coordinator virtual drop-in sessions available to all care homes.

These sessions have been designed to build a network of Activity Coordinators who come together to share ideas, good practice, and supportive relationships.

The one and a half hour sessions will include:

  • Discussions on what makes a good activity and how to involve residents in the design and planning of activities
  • A time for reflection and peer support
  • Sharing examples of group and one to one activities
  • Supporting each other to raise the profile of activities so they become part of daily life and valued by the whole staff team
  • Sharing ideas for resources and helpful contacts/organisations
  • Time to talk about what activities work well for people living with multiple heath conditions including dementia
  • Considering the value of care home volunteers and community engagement to support their work
  • Guest speakers.

Age Cymru will:

  • Facilitate the meetings using appreciative inquiry
  • Link with CIW to establish a mutual understanding of care home activities
  • Link with other organisations who can offer creative opportunities to care homes
  • Grow the network by promoting the sessions on our website, social media and through other care sector contacts such as: Care Forum Wales
  • Work with Social Care Wales to ensure the sessions count towards CPD.

Activity Coordinators will be:

  • Empowered to design, plan and lead activities that are meaningful for the people they care for
  • Competent practitioners who can share what is working well and consider how they might get things even better
  • Confident in engaging with volunteers and their local communities
  • Part of a growing network supported within a group of like-mined professionals
  • Energised to try new things and to confidently lead group and one to one activities
  • Prepared to share evidence of activities and impacts to inspectors and commissioners.
