L&M Healthcare teams up with Oomph!
L&M Healthcare has teamed up with Oomph! to help residents engage in person-centred exercise and activities.
The award-winning social enterprise Oomph! are providing fun-filled training and support to six L&M Healthcare homes.
Taking a whole-home approach to activities, teams will have expert-led training in Oomph!’s Wellbeing Leadership programme. This will equip them with everything they need to create and sustain a person-centred plan of varied exercise and activities that each resident loves. The training is tailored to each home and focuses on meeting and exceeding regulatory requirements. Each home has access to Oomph!’s new digital platform, Oomph! On Demand. This platform provides engaging exercise and activity content 365 days a year, across a diverse range of topics and meeting a range of interests and abilities –meaning care teams will be able to support residents to tune into live and recorded seated exercise sessions including things like ballet, chair yoga and mindfulness. Residents will also be able to enjoy a wide variety of activity resources, from virtual tours of Scotland to language lessons, and from history talks to music concerts. The site is full of interactive quizzes, activity ideas, an interactive activity calendar which can be selected according to a desired wellbeing goal or resident’s interests.
Jo Fogg, Operations Director from L&M Healthcare commented…
‘We have some very creative Wellbeing Leads in our homes who have been providing person-centred activities for many years. Adding Oomph to their toolkits enables them to cut down on the vast amount of research time needed for planning and creating activities, leaving them more time to engage with residents.
Initial feedback has been extremely positive, and we are looking forward to seeing how this enhances the provision of person-centred activities and exercise in our homes over the coming months.’
Ben Allen, CEO from Oomph Wellness, commented…
‘We are excited to be partnering with L&M Healthcare to drive person centred wellbeing in the homes and ensure that staff and residents have access to inspirational wellbeing activities 24/7, 365 days a year. Oomph will work closely with L&M Healthcare to ensure we are constantly providing meaningful engagement across every home.’
