Woodley bring together two generations for weekly arts sessions
The positive social effects of older generations spending time with young children are well documented, so here at Woodley we have developed an excellent relationship with Imagine This! – a local company who carry out workshops at the home; bringing together our residents with local children for weekly art sessions.
Each session has a different theme. In the past we’ve had a dinosaur, seaside and a safari inspired ‘walk on the wild side’ theme. In the next few weeks we’ll be getting in the festive spirit with Christmas themed workshops, which we’re particularly excited for.
The residents enjoy the sessions immensely, as do the children, and it’s been great to see the improvement in our residents’ wellbeing since introducing the sessions earlier this year.
