An overview report of meaningful activity in 13 care and nursing homes for older people in WorcestershireDownload (PDF 472KB)
Summary of report contentHealthwatch Worcestershire carried out Enter and view visits to 13 care and nursing home settings for older people in 2015 to look at how residents in these settings are being provided with meaningful activities that support their health and well-being. The aim of the Report was to maximise the impact of their visits and raise awareness of their work on meaningful activity to both commissioners & providers, in order to influence practice and improve resident’s experience. The visits were followed up with a postal survey in 2016 to all the settings that were visited to understand their experience of the Enter & View process, and to ask about the impact that the visits had on meaningful activity in the home. The Survey indicates that the majority of managers of the settings that were visited were satisfied with the Enter and View visits and the reporting of them. The managers have implemented the recommendations and are satisfied that the visits made a difference to meaningful activity in the home.
