Make Every Moment Count

We have worked with a team of experts to develop the ‘Make Every Moment Count’ resource, an information leaflet which contains easy to read and simple guidance for everyone supporting older people in a care home or at home. 

The resource highlights how making the most of every moment can make a real difference to a person’s quality of life in simple but very meaningful ways. 

The five key messages are:

  • Get to know me
  • It's not just what you do... it's how you make me feel
  • Know what I can do and support me to do it
  • Help me feel comfortable, safe and secure in my surroundings
  • Remember little things all add up

By providing key messages on how to better understand an individual’s needs, values and lifestyle, the guide will help people working in care services to deliver an enhanced experience for Scotland’s older people.

Hear more about the resource in our video.
