Our Moor House care home in Staines has launched a monthly parent and child group called Wisdom and Wonder. The group welcomes parents and their children in to the home to spend time with residents, play and socialise.
Each month, the group comes in to the home for a couple of hours and the children play with toys, interact with the residents and take part in activities such as singing, painting and planting seeds.
Wisdom and Wonder gives parents the opportunity to catch up with one another and the residents over hot drinks, whilst the children play with one another. Residents at Moor House have been really pleased to join the group and many sit watching the children play and speak with the parents. One resident said how much they enjoy spending time with the children and watching them play.
Lyn Spivack, Manager of Moor House, said: “We all so look forward to Wisdom and Wonder days! The residents are so full of joy watching the babies and toddlers having fun and playing. We sing nursery rhymes, which brings back wonderful memories, and our residents get some lovely cuddles from some of the smaller babies. Our residents talk about Wisdom and Wonder for days after – which is so uplifting.”
