Serious games workshop at Riversway

on . .

Last week at Riversway Nursing Home, their activity coordinators and Matt Nolan, management intern, had the opportunity to get involved with an international Erasmus+ Ad-Gaming project, ‘Serious Games’, to support Alzheimer's research.

 

As one of ten care homes to be selected, Riversway Nursing Home in Bristol was chosen to take part due to already providing a fantastic wellbeing programme for residents.

 

The Ad-Gaming project has been designed due to preliminary research which has highlighted that games can improve the cognitive function amongst people who have been impacted by Alzheimer’s disease.

 

Being part of this pilot project means the home can help researchers test which games work well for people with dementia. At the same time, it will provide cognitively stimulating activities for residents which may help to reduce the rate of functional decline and support enhanced quality of life, social inclusion and wellbeing in people living with Alzhiemers.

 

The programme also allows experienced Riversway employees to share their knowledge and experience of working directly with residents who have the condition.

 


We are looking forward to seeing the results of the pilot project over the next few months when it will be rolled out across the country.
