The Great Caldy Caper!
Activity & Well-being : Exploring the changing role of the Activity Coordinator

NAPA open training session  Bristol 6th March 2019


 NAPA appreciates the challenge that the care sector faces of providing meaningful activities to the ever increasing frail, dependant individual, one who may also be living with dementia. Also to provide an “outstanding” service is the aim of every care setting, not an easy task but with the right guidance, achievable. With this in mind NAPA has developed a training day, specifically aimed at the activity coordinator, care staff, and management staff. The morning session (9.30am – 12.30pm) will concentrate on adapting activities for different abilities and the afternoon session (1.00-4pm) will explore auditing your activity provision, giving you the tools to audit your care setting and develop a plan.

Come for one or both sessions the choice is yours! We only have 30 places at each session, so get your applications in quickly to avoid disappointment.

The cost per session will be £30 per person (NAPA member rate) or £100 per person (Non members rate)
