Care Home Visits

After the 3-5 children's visited the Pleyfauld Sheltered Housing for the elderly to sing Christmas carols, both parties enjoyed it so much that we decided to visit them on a monthly basis.  We also created a "Pen Pal" system with the residents. This involves sending drawings from the children, as well as writing to the residents, and receiving letters in return. We feel that by having an intergenerational ongoing project with the local sheltered housing residents, that it would result in extremely positive outcomes for both the children at the nursery and also the residents. We can also talk to the children about emotions such as empathy, respect and showing compassion for others and relate this to the GIRFEC Health and Wellbeing wheel.

Tuesday 10th March

Wednesday 15th April

The Care Inspectorate is encouraging care services across Scotland to bring together younger and older people for everyone's benefit.

A new resource full of good practice examples is being launched to give care services ideas on how to bring generations together in a variety of care settings in a way that improves the quality of their lives.
