Activities Are So Important

Many people living in care homes become bored and lack meaningful, engaging activities that keep them stimulated and occupied. At Kevlin House we help people feel busy, useful, and fulfilled. That way they feel like they still have a purpose. We do everything we can to support our staff teams so they can give 100% every day to the people who live with us, who we care so passionately about. We aim to make sure people continue to have a feeling of wellbeing. Dementia for example, can be challenging and frightening, the person will feel vulnerable and need reassurance and support. Many people remain aware of the things they can no longer do; loss of memory, logic and communication play are large part here. The person may become depressed if their sense of self-worth and wellbeing is reduced.


At Kevlin House we focus on what a person can do as opposed to what they can’t do. This is discussed at the care planning stage, aiming to maintain and support personal skills. We will learn together how to bring out the best in a person. A sign of true person-centred care is the people living in the home are happy, relaxed and engaged with others and the environment, not bored or asleep sitting in chairs in a circle. A person-centred care home will be calm, and staff will respond positively and effectively to the needs of the people who live there.
