NIACE have produced a great range of resources to improve access to learning opportunities for older people in care settings. Encouraging those working with older people in care settings to understand the value of keeping people engaged and active through learning, and to recognise that learning is an essential and central aspect of providing care.
Providing older people in care settings with informal learning opportunities can have a positive impact on their physical and mental well-being. This film shows the positive effects of learning experienced by residents at Leicester's Aigburth Residential Home and Matlock's Tansley House Residential Home.
NIACE works to ensure all adults can learn throughout their lives http://www.niace.org.uk/
