Happiness Programme


Introduction to the Happiness Programme

Happiness Programme Projection with Hands

The Happiness Programme has been developed by Social Ability which blends interactive, sensory light technology with a guided programme and training and support. Developed for people living with cognitive physical care needs the projector, known as a Magic Table 360, offers meaningful and engaging activity. The activities are a collection of interactive games, quizzes and mindful immersive content that are proving to be effective.

The Happiness Programme is a subscription service with the offer continuing to develop and evolve. Wi-Fi connectivity ensures new updates are available with the supplier adding new content and content for specific events including Christmas. The flexibility of the table gives users the option to project through 360 onto a table, wall, bedsheet or ceiling. Social Ability provides a wraparound support process from onboarding support for set-up and training, ongoing technical advice and tailored reporting.

Happiness Programme Feedback

"The Happiness programmes has encouraged residents to interact with each other leading to conversations that would not have happened. It is an excellent tool for using distracting techniques when residents become agitated." - Rowan House Nursing Home
