We’re really excited to be partnering with Oomph!, the UK’s leading wellbeing business for older adults. Oomph! specialises in enhancing mental, physical and emotional wellbeing for people in care home settings and throughout the wider community.
Not only will Rochcare staff receive ongoing training and support to deliver a range of Oomph! sessions, they’ll also have access to high-quality exercise classes, interactive quizzes and a range of quiet mindful activities through the Oomph! On-Demand platform, all designed to positively impact the overall wellbeing of the people we care for.
At Rochcare we believe that having things to look forward to and a sense of purpose is very important, so we help people get the most from each day in whatever way is most appropriate for them. We have always championed the people in our care spending their time how they choose, facilitating regular activities for all interests, abilities and mobility styles. Now, working closely with Oomph! in each of our four homes, the people we care for have even more choice in the type of activities to get involved with.
Following the Oomph! exercise training – which will support homes to provide fun, person-centred and adaptable exercise sessions – all our teams will have access to the Oomph! On-Demand platform, available 24/7, 365 days a year. The content is incredibly varied, ranging from Bollywood dance and ballet classes to virtual tours of Scotland, right through to printable activity books, language learning, music concerts and much more. Users of the platforms have had glowing reviews so far, calling the platform, “Absolutely brilliant” and “A complete time saver!”.
Ben Allen, Oomph!’s CEO and Founder, says, “We are absolutely delighted to be supporting the Rochcare teams to provide varied, exciting and meaningful activities for everyone to enjoy. We are definitely looking forward to seeing all of the Oomph! training and resources in action!”
We hope the people in our homes, their families and Rochcare staff are as excited to start using and benefiting from Oomph! as we are. We’re confident it will help put a smile on everyone’s face and give every day at Rochcare some Oomph!
