This course makes use of CAPA resources and other online videos and resources put together by Professor Dawn Skelton at Glasgow Caledonian University for the CAPA Programme.
You will complete 6 stand alone modules covering:
• the benefits of people experiencing care moving more in terms of their physical, mental and social health,
• ways to think about helping blood circulation, stiffness, sore knees and continence and ideas for action.
You will spend approximately 1 hour on-line for each module (you can do a bit then come back to it later).
Each module includes some additional resources and links if you want to know more and finishes with a few reflective questions at the end.
The modules you will cover are:
Module 1 – Introduction to the CAPA Programme and further resources provided by CAPA to support physical activity in care settings
Module 2 – Common ailments and how these affect people being active when we are frail
Module 3 – Does more activity mean more falls? Keeping people safe and mobile
Module 4 – Ideas for action – Successful case studies in a range of settings, abilities and in those with dementia
Module 5 – Carers’ voices, what benefits they see when older people become more active
Module 6 – Voices of older people, what being active means to them
