Hi I am a well-being coordinator in a care home in Perth in Scotland . I love my job and I love this site it has so many great ideas . I am struggling right now trying to engage care staff with well-being as they are very task orientated. Any ideas on how to boost the staff and get them interested?

Hi Kate like yourself I work in homes in Scotland and I know how hard it is to get staff to engage,why not try and give the staff a project to be involved in along with the residents, we at the moment are doing a virtual cruise in our gardens our staff and residents chose their country and are planting flowers and designing the garden to go with the country, it's a competition which the staff are really getting into and have came up with some great ideas there now starting to think about xmas,good luck.
