As a technology provider of wellbeing activities for care homes, Oomph On-Demand is a platform designed specifically to enhance quality of life for both staff and residents. With a variety of activities from over 2,000 sessions, there is an activity that caters to each resident's unique preferences and interests, from seated exercises, quizzes, sing-alongs to creative workshops and everything in between. 

Our wellbeing and activities platform offers many benefits to residents in social care settings.  

Benefits for the residents

  • Positively increases quality of life 

Oomph On-Demand offers a range of wellbeing and fitness programmes that help improve mental health, physical fitness, and social interaction. The interactive sessions are designed to provide fun, exercise, challenges, and creativity, which all contribute to better health and quality of life for residents. 

  • Increases engagement and interaction 

With so many activities on offer from Oomph On-Demand, residents are more likely to engage, participate and enjoy the activities. Doing the same activities repeatedly can become monotonous, but through the variety that Oomph On-Demand provides, residents are excited every time there is a new activity, providing a sense of excitement and a real sense of every day being different. 

  • Greater social interaction 

By offering a wide range of engaging activities and tailored programs, residents can connect with their peers, form new friendships, and participate in meaningful group activities. Oomph On-Demand encourages collaboration and socialisation, creating an environment where residents can share their interests, experiences, and hobbies. This all helps to combat and reduce isolation and loneliness. 

  • Boost physical and emotional health 

Oomph On-Demand provides its users with a plethora of engaging and interactive activities that are designed to promote physical and emotional health. Through the platform, residents in care homes can access activities that are tailored to their individual needs and preferences, such as seated exercises or dance sessions.  

These activities promote physical health by encouraging residents to engage in regular exercise and movement, which can increase muscle strength, improve balance, and reduce the risk of falls. In addition, Oomph On-Demand's wellbeing activities, such as mindfulness and relaxation sessions, can help to reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, promoting emotional wellbeing.  

By providing such a broad range of activities to their users, Oomph On-Demand can help to boost physical and emotional health, ultimately leading to an improved quality of life for care home residents and staff alike. 


Benefits for care staff

  • Ease of Planning 

Providing engaging activities for residents takes both time and effort on behalf of carers. Oomph On-Demand takes care of the planning, cutting down on scheduling and preparation time necessary for staff and giving them time back doing the things they enjoy like spending time with residents and providing the best care to them. 

  • Improved Work-life Balance 

Quality activities impact not only the residents but the staff that work with them. With the Wellbeing & Activities Platform providing residents with well-planned engaging activities, it frees up valuable time for care staff, reducing stress and increased job satisfaction due to having a more pleasant working environment, leading to a healthier work-life balance. 

  • Personal Development 

The Wellbeing & Activities Platform is instrumental in enhancing personal development for care staff. With its vast library of activity ideas, staff members might pick up ideas on how to recreate them in the future with the residents they support, offering a wealth of opportunities for continuous learning and growth. This enables them to expand their knowledge, acquire new skills, and stay updated with the latest trends and best practices in care home activities and wellbeing.
