Activities Programme in Older Adult Care


Aim: Our half-day course will equip participants with foundation skills in adapting and developing an activities programme in older adult care.

The residents’ needs will be prioritised throughout and all of the programmes will be assessed to cater to each resident’s interests and abilities. Activities focus on the social and fun factor as well as the physical benefits. HIQA Standard 18 (2016) requires that “techniques such as life stories, reminiscence, reality orientation, validation, sensory equipment and music are used to enhance communication”
