Written by the College of Occupational Therapists, Living well through activity in care homes, is a comprehensive workbook featuring examples of activities that care home staff can organize with residents. There are 5 workbooks, each meant for a different user group, which include long-term care staff, residents and families, long-term care management and occupational therapists. The most comprehensive and thorough workbook is that meant for long-term care staff.
The tool is organized by the amount of time an activity takes, separated by 5 minutes, 15 minutes, or an hour or more. The activities range from day-to-day activities that help residents feel more at home in their surroundings, to group activities, like sensory or reminiscence activities.
