Care Home Activities for Dementia

While many hospitals and care homes offer excellent support, some are not doing enough to provide high quality, personalised care that helps individuals to live as fulfilling a life as possible”. This is evidenced by the Care Quality Commission’s (CQC) review of dementia care.

The Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2020 is to create a society by 2020 where every person with dementia, and their carers and families will receive high quality, compassionate care from diagnosis through to end of life care. This applies to all care settings, whether home, hospital or care home. The Challenge all sets out that all hospitals and care homes will be meeting agreed criteria to becoming a dementia friendly health and care setting.

An estimated 25 percent of hospital beds are occupied by people with dementia and approximately 69 per cent of care home residents are currently estimated to have dementia. With this in mind care homes and hospitals need to be doing more to be equipped with supporting people with dementia and this means having adult appropriate and suitable activities. As everyone is an individual some people will enjoy doing a particular activity whilst another will not get pleasure from it. Therefore, there needs to be a range of activities to suit everyone’s needs.

Mindful Gifts CIC can make things easy for you, by providing a one stop shop for adult appropriate and meaningful activities. All of our activities have been tried and tested for their suitability for people with dementia and our customers include care homes, hospitals, Clinical Commissioning Groups, Mental Health Trusts, day centres, prisons and dementia support groups. We have put together some professional packs, however, we have a wide selection of activities for you to choose from in the ‘Activities’ section.

You can order off our website and we can dispatch your items immediately to the address of your choice. However, if you prefer to pay by purchase order and/or invoice, you can email us at mindful.gifts@yahoo.com   (dot in-between mindful and gifts) with your order.

We aim to support you to become ‘dementia friendly’ health and care setting and meet the criteria set out by the Prime Minister’s Challenge.
