Prevention service description
Oomph! provides three key services: exercise classes, creative activities and engaging days out. In the care home sector, Oomph! provides training and support to enable care home staff to deliver high quality wellbeing programmes for residents, including exercise sessions, activities & trips out to local destinations. Oomph! also provides training and support to enable community services to offer high quality exercise classes.
The Oomph! model has evolved in the past seven years, from delivering exercise classes directly to residents, to training staff in care settings to run the classes themselves, which keeps the costs down for providers and participants. Another key feature of the Oomph! approach is that wellbeing in care homes is viewed holistically, which manifests in involving everyone in the care home in training.
