Have you just landed a new job in activities?

This course will get you started on the right track straight away.

Just like the DIY version of this course, whether you are completely new to the role of Activity Coordinator or Lifestyle Manager, or you have just moved to a new setting this is a great course for you.  


How much time does it take?

Going through the course takes approximately 2 hours.  Implementing the work is done as part of your job role.


Extra Support

I have added a private Facebook Pop-up Group to create a  'done with me' version. This is a Social Learning Group.

Over a 4 week period I will support you as you organise your day and plan your week, making the most of what your care home has to offer. 

When you have completed this course you will know how to plan meaningful activities for the months ahead and how to showcase them.


Accountability

During the 4 weeks you will receive support and encouragement to complete the work necessary to support your care home family.

After the 4 weeks, you are invited to remain in the group for as long as you wish.

    @BCKuk is a must for any care activity coordinator out there.

What people are saying about this course.

We've had some fantastic feedback about this course following our trials. Our course is tried and tested by activity coordinators like you. We've been blown away by the positive feedback we've received.

    It was very informative and full of useful ideas for every day activities. It also shows that even a cup of tea and a natter is an activity and has a lot of benefits. I often find my manager telling me that our wee residents don't have to be swinging from the light shades every day although a lot of carers and family members think this is should be the case! Some of my wee friends are 96 years old! And this results in a lot of anxiety and stress for me. I do a lot of work at home, though not as much as I 'think' I should be doing, As time in work goes by so fast, and again, carers see paperwork and laptop or craft prep as time wasting. They should see my living room some evenings! So my manager is right, like you have stated in part of the course, that time management is important and it's good for others who may be stressing like I do to see that they are not alone and it's okay to do their prep work at work! Although I must admit, I do enjoy covering my home in glitter.

    I love this course as it gives me more focus as I am totally new to this job and it gives me ideas too. I love the PDF's they are clear and concise.....the whole course is.

  • Kerry

    All done thank you so much for that. Loved the download sheets, these will definitely help to plan our time more efficiently. Particularly like the ideas under the section, change everyday activities into something special. We have a cooked breakfast on a Wednesday, also have a breakfast club every third Saturday . Love the idea of fish and chips, we are hoping to be able to get a mobile van to come in to us. Could I ask where you access the free online calendar as I was able to see this? The course was very clear and straightforward and definitely beneficial to myself being a beginner. Thank you again. Kerry
