Summary

Having a meaningful life with strong relationships and purposeful activity is a central part of an individual’s identity.  As people become more vulnerable and increasingly rely upon the care of others it is crucial that meaningful activity is supported in a way that meets individual needs, individual personality and individual history.

We wanted to gain an understanding of how meaningful activity is supported within Sunderland care homes. Fifteen care homes were selected from a list of local authority commissioned services.

The aim of this work was to:

  • Identify innovative and creative practice
  • Identify barriers to promoting meaningful activity
  • Identify ways to support the implementation of the recommendations from this report
