Care about Physical Activity (CAPA) is an improvement programme led by the Care Inspectorate to help older people in care to move more often. From little things like encouraging older people to post their own letters or walk up the stairs instead of using the lift. It’s about staff, people experiencing care and their friends and family working together to increase health, well being and mobility. It’s about making things easier so that people can do things for themselves.
