Many people watched the Channel 4 TV show called The Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds, which looked at the benefits of inter-generational activities.

In the series, one of the UK’s biggest retirement villages opened a nursery where the classmates’ ages ranged from 3 to 102. It looked at what the very young and the very old learn from each other?

Inter-generation activities at our home

We have long established bonds with our local schools and see first hand the mutual benefits of inter-generational activities.

For our residents, reading with a child or playing can bring a purpose, a reason to smile. A natural lift which can raise spirits and those smiles stay long beyond the children’s home time. For the children, they have a whole lot of new grandparents to share their games and introduce their teddies to. To listen to their stories and give them their time.

When life is so non-stop and hectic for most adults, the younger and the older generations have in common the ability to just be – to live in the moment.

Kimbolton Playgroup

We have a lovely relationship with the parents and children of Kimbolton Playgroup, who regularly visit. Our huge conservatory is perfect for toddlers to play and we have lots of bricks and games – and biscuits and cake for all.

You can see from this gorgeous picture below just how special the bonds can be.

Full Circle

Full Circle host an inter-generational activity every second Monday of each month. This is at the Baptist Church, Leominster and some of our residents are always keen to attend.

This is a wonderful community activity, most recently being a craft day making Easter cards.

The Courtyard

The Courtyard is a great venue that often organises play together activity. They have a huge space so there are always giant balls, bigger than the children and a lot of laughter running around!
