What we Do
Runner-up in the 2018 Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards, The Therapy Box is registered charity that operates New Zealand’s first and only online activity library for adults in residential care. In New Zealand, aged care facilities have activities run by a trained specialist, known as a Diversional Therapist. The Therapy Box activity library enables therapists to hire activities for a small fee, equipping them with the resources to run varied and interesting programs for their residents. Aged care facilities nationwide are able to hire ‘Activity Boxes’ that contain a selection of five activities designed to support, challenge and enhance the psychological, spiritual, social, emotional and physical well-being of their residents. The loan order can be placed on our digital library accessible through our website. The Activity Box then gets couriered to the facility.
