L’Hermitage and Beaumont Villa go Oomph!

At L’Hermitage and Beaumont Villa care homes in St Peter, Jersey, our residents are now enjoying Oomph sessions as part of our varied activity schedule at our homes.

Oomph stands for ‘Our Organisation Makes People Happy,’ to promote wellbeing within the home and the sessions are specifically designed to enhance our residents’ mental, physical and emotional wellbeing. Due to the success of these sessions and the visible impact they have on our residents, we are now delighted that we have two accredited Oomph teachers; Dina at L’Hermitage and Alicia at Beaumont Villa.

Both attended a training course given by the very able Scott Carter-Brace who was so enthusiastic and engaging which made the training really enjoyable for Dina and Alicia.

An Oomph session involves regular mental stimulation and fun physical activity and will also help our residents interact with each other and their instructor. Props such as brightly coloured pompoms and scarfs were given to use and everyone really enjoyed our latest activity.

Focusing on using familiar music and sensory props such as above helps create a fun and social ‘party’ atmosphere and it’s an ideal activity to involve all of our residents in and is particularly effective for those with dementia.

Both Dina and Alicia can’t wait to start implementing this new concept of cognitive and physical lifestyle elements with all our residents and we are all looking forward to our next session.

At L’Hermitage care home we provide residential and nursing care for up to 66 elderly people. Beaumont Villa provides specialist dementia care for up to 24 elderly residents. Located within the grounds of L’Hermitage Gardens Retirement Village, in St Peter on Jersey, our purpose-built homes represent our commitment to delivering outstanding care.
