In July 1998, Elaine Everett after visiting her grandfather living with dementia in a care home, saw a need for change, rolled up her sleeves and developed a ground-breaking new service concept for the care sector that would make a difference. With no business blueprint to follow, Motivation & Co. was created with its unique programmes and materials including a patented game. Elaine identified a number of specialist advisers, all accredited to work with older people for exercise and physiotherapy, relaxation therapy and researched into cognitive mental stimulation therapy.
