Essence 52 is the wellbeing partner for nursing homes who would like to offer their older residents the best possible experience while living in residential care.
What does the Essence 52 Wellbeing Lifestyle look like?
Daily relaxation sessions, using the scent of lavender and providing the space to enjoy quiet contemplation, meditation or personal prayer can help with the residents' spiritual wellbeing.

Essence 52 facilitator training: Frequently asked questions
Where can I find out about the benefits of Essence 52?
How can I introduce Essence 52 into my nursing home?
How can Essence 52 benefit both small independent nursing homes and large nursing home groups?
For the smaller nursing homes with just one activity coordinator, a carer can also be trained to become an Essence 52 facilitator, ensuring residents can have a meaningful life in residential care every day. The staff members will feel part of a larger community of Essence 52 facilitators and also can benefit from weekly resources and regular online support workshops.
For large nursing home groups Essence 52 can provide consistency of service, with potential residents knowing they will get the same high quality trained activity staff.
