It would seem that everything that I wanted this website to do has been achieved. We really are endlessly thrilled with how it looks!
Beth Lyford, Alive! Communications and Support Officer
There are over 400,000 older people living in residential care in the UK.
Alive! is a charity dedicated to improving the quality of life of older people in care through meaningful activities.
Alive! is one of the leading practitioners in the UK of meaningful activity for older people in care. We provide fun and dynamic activity sessions to encourage creativity, celebrate life stories and get the circulation going.
We are different to other activity providers because we enable older people to shape the content and direction of Alive! sessions, which include the use of new technology, guided reminiscence, creative, energising and physical activities. We entertain but we are more than entertainers. We engage older people in meaningful ways using a variety of tools and techniques tried and tested over the last 10 years.
Alive! activity sessions are proven to impact positively on older people in the expression of personal identity, enabling of personal choice, interaction with others and general well-being. Their training and mentoring is found to have contributed to positive changes in the culture of care and practice within the care settings.
