Oomph! Wellness, the UK’s leading wellbeing business for older adults, and the National Care Forum (NCF) are both committed to positively supporting people who live and work in the social care sector to help improve their wellbeing post-pandemic.
In their recent research Age UK aims to measure how older people in the UK are doing. Their research highlights ‘the most striking conclusion from our Index is the importance of maintaining meaningful engagement with the world around you in later life – whether this is through social, creative or physical activity, work, or belonging to some form of a community group.’ https://www.ageuk.org.uk/our-impact/policy-research/wellbeing-research/
Professor Vic Rayner OBE, CEO, NCF said: “The need for engaging activities tailored specifically for older people is essential to a life well lived, particularly after the pandemic when access to such vital wellbeing resources were limited. Our ongoing partnership with Oomph! Wellness enables our members to access both On Demand resources and engaging exercise and wellbeing training.”
Matt Hamblin, Business Director, Oomph Wellness said: “ We are delighted to be working in partnership with the NCF to drive meaningful engagement across the care sector. Additionally to have the opportunity to connect directly with NCF members and share our thinking and guidance for future innovation and support.”
