Lancaster Grange Care Home, Fernwood, celebrate International Day of Older Persons with Fernwood Day Nursery
Children who regularly visited a care home have continued to connect with residents through video calls.
Residents at Lancaster Grange Care Home, Fernwood, celebrated International Day of Older Persons with pupils at Fernwood Day Nursery.
Activities co-ordinator Charlotte Thompson said the sessions gave a huge emotional boost for residents.
“The children sang harvest songs and showcased pictures they had drawn for us,” said Charlotte.
“The integration of children with our residents and staff has huge self-esteem and emotional-boosting benefits.
“Celebrating this day will increase their understanding of the impact of covid-19 and can show residents how we can still virtually interact with our local communities and friends.”
The next planned Zoom call will have a Halloween theme.
