Initiatives for Care Settings
Are you working in a care setting? Are you interested in running some new arts initiatives for residents? Would you like to get some additional training for you or your staff on how to lead physical activity sessions in your care setting?
Age & Opportunity has learned a lot about the changing needs and desires of older people in Ireland and can offer a range of different initiatives to further train and educate care workers.
