The College of Occupational Therapists is leading a project to support older people in care homes to experience a good home life.

Occupational therapists (OTs) are skilled at helping people take part in day to day activities and supporting care home staff to enable this.  They will be working with our partners in the health and social care community to champion activity in care homes in the UK and commit to Taking the CUE.

This means to:

Connect with

Understand and

Encourage residents 

In September 2013 the College of Occupational Therapists are launching the ‘Living Well Through Activity in Care Homes Toolkit’ to the wider public.  The Toolkit is a free, practical resource full of ideas of how to support residents in care homes to live their life doing the day to day activities that are important to them. We want the Toolkit to be available to every care home in the UK.

It includes free training materials and audit tools to review and evidence aspects of care such as personalisation. It also promotes dignity, mental and physical well being and integration into the community.
