Birch Green Care Home has partnered up with a leading specialist to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of its residents.
Birch Green, part of Springhill Care Group, will work with Oomph! Wellness to implement a wellness project and deliver a range of activities for residents with a focus on positively changing the impact of ageing.
Employees at each home will attend development sessions which aims to enhance activity provision for residents, while an exercise leadership in care settings course, endorsed by Active IQ, will also be undertaken by Springhill’s lifestyle team to allow staff to run inclusive exercise sessions.
Oomph! Wellness was set up in 2011 and works to improve the wellbeing of care home residents and older adults in communities.
Donna Briggs, Managing Director at Springhill Care Group said: “Springhill aims to provide a life not just a service with a focus on enhancing the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of our residents. Over the next few months, Springhill will start to implement a whole-home wellbeing culture which will see all of our staff getting involved in some way.
“We look forward to our residents feeling the benefits of our partnership with Oomph! as we work to further develop our person-centred service, complete with a range of fun activities.”
Matt Hamblin, Senior Business Manager at Oomph! said: “Our team of dedicated experts will work closely with the Birch Green team to positively change the impact of ageing and provide innovative exercise and activity solutions, as well as a range of workshops and trips out.”
“Working with Birch Green gives us the opportunity to enhance the lives of people living in care homes - no matter how old they are, we can ensure they live a full life, for life.”
Oomph! Wellness will also be working with the other care homes operated by Springhill Care Group around the country including; Springhill Care Home, Accrington and Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol.
