Oomph On Demand and ZooLab form exciting Content Partnership…

By Care Home, Community No Comments

Oomph On Demand and ZooLab form exciting Content Partnership… providing inspiring animal content for residents across the UK!

Animal experts, ZooLab, have formed a partnership with Oomph! On Demand to provide a series of virtual animal encounters that educate on a variety of different species from the animal kingdom – from tree frogs to snakes, to giant millipedes and African land snails.

The content will provide meaningful engagement for residents across the UK that will amaze, educate and inspire, as part of a wider range of activity resources that are available on Oomph On Demand covering multiple topics.

Oomph! On Demand provides engaging exercise and activity content 365 days a year, across a diverse range of topics and meeting a range of interests and abilities –meaning care teams are able to support residents to tune into live and recorded seated exercise sessions including things like ballet, chair yoga and mindfulness. Residents also enjoy a wide variety of activity resources, from virtual tours of Scotland to language lessons, and from history talks to music concerts.

The site is full of interactive quizzes, activity ideas, and an interactive activity calendar which can be selected according to a desired wellbeing goal or resident’s interests.

ZooLab will become an integral  part of the Oomph On Demand platform, where they will be hosting a range of themed workshops, as well as providing a selection of activity resources. They have been visiting care homes with animals for over twenty years, and their rangers are dementia friend trained which gives them a great understanding when interacting with residents in a care setting. Now ZooLab also provide virtual animal sessions with their team of experts to be able to reach even more residents more often, with their portfolio of engaging and educational animal content

ZooLab are looking forward to delivering virtual sessions for Oomph and reaching residents in a large number of care homes. Residents can interact with the presenter through the chat function and ask questions about the animals, and they will also have access to printable animal quizzes. Workshop sessions will be themed capturing key calendar days such as Halloween and Christmas. 

“ZooLab are very excited to be partnering with Oomph! We’ve had huge success with providing animal therapy sessions face-to-face and online in care settings over the years. On Demand is a fantastic way to give staff another method of providing activity sessions to residents and help increase social interaction.” – Diane Mathison, ZooLab Managing Director

“We are all delighted here at Oomph! to be partnering with ZooLab. Not only will we be able to bring exciting animal encounters to all of our clients who have access to Oomph! On Demand, but we will also be able to bring Georgie’s engaging enthusiasm and knowledge. These workshops are only the beginning of a long and exciting relationship that will have a positive impact on so many people’s wellbeing. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!” Jack McKechnie, Content Creation Lead
