Oomph! at Wellburn Care
Oomph!’s story is close to Wellburn's heart, as they were the first care home to pioneer their services at their Rosevale home. Oomph! offer services to enhance the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of older adults, through training key staff members to better understand their needs.
They are currently trialling Oomph!'s latest offering in three of their homes - Eighton Lodge, Wellburn House and Grimston Court. Year on year, Wellburn invest a lot of time and money into their activity programmes within their homes, and the work they have collaborated on with Oomph! has been integral to some of this investment.
Working with providers such as Oomph!, ensures that Wellburn continue to provide their residents with the best possible quality of life. Introducing long term transformations in behaviours that leave people with more confidence, independence, and dignity – enabling them to live a life in full colour, is just one way of doing this.
Oomph! have now trained over 1500 staff, with 84% of those trained, noticing significant improvements in the mental stimulation and social interaction of their residents.
The principal behind their success, is to train as many members of staff as possible in each home, and then provide ongoing support, inspiration and education through their private online community and monthly support packs.
Each pack contains resources, templates, original activities and best practice examples to keep building on the skills developed in their courses. Wellburn are already looking forward to seeing the results from this latest collaboration.
