Herefordshire Care Homes Launches their Well-being Wheel

The launch of the Wellbeing Wheel! A tool to help us delve deeper into what constitutes a perfect day for our residents. It will help us understand what matters most, what helps them feel safe, where they like to spend their time, and how they like to spend it. We will find out what helps our residents feel healthy, what helps them feel independent, and what feeds not only their body, but their soul too! Finally, its important to still have goals and aspirations no matter what age, so we will endeavor to find out what goals our residents are yet to achieve so we can support them to achieve them. The staff tried it out first with some fabulous results . We’ll be chatting to residents and their families and friends all about it in the coming days and trialing it to see how we can help to achieve the most Perfect Day possible.
