Activity Co-ordination Service

The Activity Co-ordination Service is available to all inpatients, but particularly those who are long-stay inpatients. This service is valuable for those from rural or remote areas who are removed from their usual environment and support networks. The Activities Coordinator provides a two hour Craft and Activities Group for Long Stay Patients on four days of the week. For patients who cannot leave their rooms, the Activities Coordinator can go to the patient’s room and set up an activity.
 
The aims of the Activity Coordination Service are:

  • to provide activities that enhance patients' hospital stay and general well being
  • to give patients an opportunity to maintain leisure pursuits or learn a new activity during an extended hospital admission
  • to promote social interaction and sharing of hospital experiences in a safe and welcoming space (via the Craft and Activities Groups).
The Activities Coordinator screens the wards daily to identify appropriate patients who may benefit from this service. Staff can also discuss new patients with the Activities Coordinator to determine what service best meets the person’s needs. No formal referral is necessary.
