Living Well Through Activity in Care Homes (BAOT / COT)

Summary

The British Association of Occupational Therapists (BAOT) and College of Occupational Therapists (COT) have produced a set of free online resources designed to help care home residents maintain health, their sense of purpose and involvement by continuing to engage in meaningful activities. The College of Occupational Therapists’ toolkit, called “Living well through activity in care homes” consists of five guides to share practical expertise about raising levels of physical activity in care homes.

“Developed by the College of Occupational Therapists (COT), the Toolkit consists of five separate sections aimed at a range of audiences including care home residents, their family and friends; care home staff, owners and managers; commissioners and inspectors; and occupational therapists”.
