We are Social-Ability and we’re making people happier
Our service – the Happiness Programme – works in a wide variety of care organisations from care homes and day centres to hospitals and libraries, and has proven effective and can be adapted for different physical and sensory profiles for people with learning disabilities.
Catering to different physical and sensory profiles
When it comes to activities for people in adult social care, we understand the challenges and opportunities to make a difference to people’s lives. Despite the different physical and sensory profiles, the circumstances of care, a person’s age and their interests, we start with an ambition to meet some essential needs; namely to be happy, to take part in activities that are meaningful, to have fun and to live an exciting life.
We have a service user who is non-verbal and never interacts with people. He engaged so much with the magic table 360. It was lovely to watch.
It truly warrants all the hard work we did trying to get the Happiness Programme.
Jo Ludlow – Manager at Buckinghamshire County Council
How can the Happiness Programme help?
Play anytime, anywhere
Central to delivering incredible day to day activities is our magic table 360.
The projector has been built for both flexibility and portability.
Being small, lightweight and being attached to an easy-to-move stand, means that moving the magic table 360 between rooms, on to different floors and sharing it between different buildings is an easy, everyday practicality.
Our games can be projected 360 degrees, meaning it’s just as effective on bed sheets, walls and ceilings as it is on tables.
Games for everyone
We’ve taken great care to build a collection of games that meets the many different interests and profiles of people with learning disabilities and, within each game, we use a robust process to ensure we’re delivering those basic needs of providing meaningful activity in a fun and engaging way.
This means our games are a resource that people can use repeatedly without fatigue and that there’s a meaningful activity for all among the people you support.
We repeatedly hear from care staff who are one minute playing football and the next, are gazing up at the stars.
Watch the Happiness Programme in action
The Happiness Programme has been quite revolutionary. It has enabled awe and wonder moments for some of the people we support, that we have not observed before.
It’s provided inspired sensory experiences and offered different things for different people.
Caroline O’Brien, Deputy Manager, Fitzroy
Support for visual impairment and all physical profiles
We understand that no two care locations are ever the same and the people you support will have different needs and requirements to make activities safe, fun and meaningful.
It’s why we’ve developed many of our games to have additional sensory experience, whether that’s the rustling of leaves, the sound of the sea or games dedicated to music and song.
It’s also what led us to developing a light projector that could be projected on to any surface.
While many of our games can be played using a prop, feedback was telling us we needed to develop our games and our training for people who couldn’t hold utensils, brushes or other props.
So, we now cover this in the Happiness Programme’s training; from the best games to use for those with limited physical movement to ideas such as projecting on to sheets with hands placed underneath to create movement.
