How to Uplift a Resident’s Mental Well-Being in a Care Home


Providing our residents with a comfortable and supportive environment here at Athena Healthcare Group, is very important to us as it can help uplift their mental well-being. Listed below are some ways on how we improve the well-being of residents in our care homes. 

1. Encourage Socialisation

Encouraging residents to socialise with each other can help them feel less lonely and isolated. Therefore, organising group activities such as games, movie nights or setting up communal areas, residents can come together and chat. Creating a sense of community in a care home is so important for residents.

2. Offer Mental Stimulation

Providing mental stimulation through games, puzzles, and other activities can help keep residents’ minds active and engaged. In addition, the mental stimulation activities we provide at Athena Healthcare Group Include activities like arts and crafts, music therapy, and reminiscence therapy. 

3. Ensure Adequate Physical Activity

We encourage our residents to take part in gentle exercise classes or walks as this can help improve their physical and mental well-being. Furthermore, ensuring our residents are happy mentally and psychically is important as it can help improve mood, reduce anxiety and depression, and increase energy levels.

4. Provide Access to Nature

If it’s going for a walk or planting flowers, spending time in natural environments has been shown to improve mental well-being. This can help create a calming and relaxing atmosphere within the care homes. 

5. Offer Emotional Support

Just like anyone, our residents can experience a whole range of emotions, so we ensure our residents are listened to. Here at Athena Healthcare Group, we offer weekly activities which our residents enjoy getting involved in. This support helps our residents feel heard and supported, it can also help to prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation.

We are here for you and your needs. Get in touch via email  hello@ahcg.co.uk or give us a call on 01704 53 53 53.
