Residents get involved and lend a hand during ‘Tools Down’ initiative across Runwood Homes

Residents at Broomhills care home in Rochford, Essex, have been getting hands on during the new ‘Tools Down’ initiative.

Residents lent a helping hand in the dining room and also in the kitchen, which was a great interaction between them and staff.

Every day at 11am, staff in in all departments at each and every one of our residential care and nursing homes, come together for ‘tools down’. 

For a period of 30 minutes, staff will halt their tasks to spend quality time together with our residents, including those who are limited to their bedrooms, to enjoy conversation, company and to grow companionships.

This initiative aims to keep everyone connected with meaningful engagement and communication.
