Smiles all round when 4 year olds visit Forest Oaks
Event Date: Oct 2017
Residents at Forest Oaks welcomed children from Highwood Nursery on their first visit to the home. The children, aged 3 and 4, brought their favourite stories and picture books to share with residents and taught the residents one of their favourite songs with actions.
There has been much coverage in the news recently of the benefits of young children visiting older people in residential care settings and we felt that with such a lovely nursery like Highfield on our doorstep this would be something that we could pilot at Forest Oaks. The first visit went really well and both the children and the residents enjoyed getting to know each other and we are all looking forward to our future visits.
