Meet the Reading Team

"Motivation & Co. Reading was launched in September 2008 following the opportunity given to me by an inheritance from my great aunt. Her care, attention, love, and laughter featured largely in my life while I was growing up, and this franchise is a tribute to her."

"My HR training, sales and admin skills, together with voluntary work experience with the elderly and people with learning disabilities, make this the ideal business for me particularly as I have a keen interest in health and fitness too."

"I have built the business up over the last eight years and now deliver Motivation & Co. classes in 30 care homes in and around Reading, Wokingham, Bracknell, Basingstoke and Newbury. It is deeply satisfying to see continued and growing interest in Motivation & Co. Reading with no loss of business in the present economic climate."

"The classes are great fun but particularly noteworthy is the unique structure of the Motivation & Co. class which has a pronounced effect on residents with Dementia."

About Motivation & Co. Reading

Motivation & Co. Reading provides specialist recreation and motivation classes for the elderly. Our classes are carried out in Nursing and Residential Homes and have been designed to help residents maintain or improve their emotional and physical well-being.

The benefits to the Care Home are that you are working in partnership with a National Award winning UK company with a proven track record of success, supported by committed and trained Therapists who are fully engaged in our company ethos through continuous training and development.

The Motivation & Co. Class

The Motivation & Co. Service is a series of programmes delivering mental stimulation, exercises and games all of which have been designed and developed by the company with meaning, purpose and tools to evaluate.

The Motivation & Co. Class is split into 4 sections: Mental Stimulation, Chair based exercises, Game section and Music therapy, it is this format that has been researched and proven to work.

All 4 sections are delivered over an hour so each section is short sharp and sweet thus holding the attention and concentration of our client group.

The level in which the Motivation & Co. class is delivered, is set tailored to each groups ability, and the aim of each Motivation & Co. class is to stimulate and motivate residents at varying levels within our target audience both mentally and physically.

Our experience and expertise in cognitive stimulation has allowed us to develop evidence based programmes which will at varying levels engage a person.

What is a taster session?

Trying us out by way of a taster session gives you the opportunity to see what we are about and what wedo and more importantly the effect we have on your residents.

The taster sessions are always the same theme (colour) as with this theme, we can quickly adjust dependant on the abilities of your clients without them knowing that we are raising or lowering the delivery level.

All the Motivation & Co. Class materials are specifically designed and produced by the company making it unique to us. Motivation & Co. is fully researched, evidence based and a national Award winning UK company.

What happens after your taster session?

Following the taster session we leave you a couple of days to digest and get feedback from staff and residents to evaluate if this is something you would wish to use on a regular basis. We will contact you to get feedback as you know your residents better than us to see if you had a good response or not.

If you do choose to come on board you will receive a welcome pack and will be booked in either weekly, fortnightly or four weekly same day & time. Each home is different as to how often they have us.

You will also receive an activities task sheet each month form head office via e-mail – these are all evidence based stating what you are working on and made so that they can be implemented without having to go out and buy items to make this activity.

We also hold an activity co-ordinators training day once a year in your area working in partnership with you as part of your team.

We are fully researched by Leeds University and we have developed a Dementia falls prevention programme for the NHS Hertfordshire, we are a registered training centre and all our Motivational Therapists are DBS checked and fully insured.

Our residents are our #1 priority

  • Our residents enjoy Motivation and Co’s visits very much. Participation is very high as Sue encourages everyone so well. Our residents remember Sue’s visits, and staff can feel the sense of well being that lasts for several hours. I am happy to heartily recommend them.
