Meaningful Activities address one’s psychological and social needs. They relate to the quality of the experience rather than the specific type of activity.
Well-being is not just about activities, it’s about everyday meaningful interaction or engagement. Activities may provide emotional, creative, intellectual, physical and spiritual stimulation. It should take place in an environment that is appropriate to the person's needs and preferences, which may include using outdoor spaces or making adaptations to the person's environment.
