The Happiness Programme: A Mission to Spark Laughter for All


The Happiness Programme supports care venues using interactive light technology, improving the lives of residents in ways previously thought unattainable. 

It provides comprehensive support to fully integrate the technology, creating an immersive and engaging environment that fosters joy, relaxation and social connection.  

The impact of the Programme has been overwhelmingly positive by increased happiness and connectedness. We’ve seen improved quality of life, reduced PRN’s & Falls and improved Nutrition & Hydration.  

Care staff have also experienced increased job satisfaction, more capacity and a more fulfilling working environment. The programme exemplifies the power of human connection and technology's positive impact on our well-being.

We have partnerships with the Alzheimer’s Society to improve physical activity for people with dementia and an upcoming partnership with the National trust – come and find out a bit more about how the Happiness Programme can improve overall wellbeing for staff and residents and see the technology that has gone viral on TikTok in 2024 with over 2.6 million views!
