History of Motivation & Co.
The original idea for Motivation & Co. was developed by Elaine Everett founder and principal of the business.
In 1997, Elaine’s grandfather who had Alzheimer’s Dementia was eventually taken into a care home. Whilst visiting him on a regular basis, Elaine observed that many of the residents appeared to be simply “whiling away the hours” (and days) with little or nothing to do and that generally there was little in the way of social interaction or stimulation for these residents.
Over a period of months Elaine began to develop the idea of providing a professional service to care homes with the sole objective of helping residents to maintain their physical and mental dexterity and ability.
Elaine identified a number of specialist advisors, all of whom are accredited to work with older people for exercise and physiotherapy, relaxation therapy and researched into cognitive mental stimulation therapy.
Together they developed the structure and techniques of the Motivation & Co. Class a series of Mental stimulation, exercises and games, all of which had meaning, purpose and tools to evaluate.
History and background of the Motivation & Co. Franchise
In 1998 Elaine started operating the business in care homes in and around York. Initially, Elaine operated the business on a part-time basis, prior to the development of the Motivation & Co. Franchise System.
The original Motivation & Co. franchise pilots ran in York, Leeds and Wakefield for 3 -4 years prior to the launch of the franchise business in 2003. Elaine needed to be sure that the business would stand the test of time.
