Fun times had by both young and old

Fun and frivolity were on offer to both young and old this week as residents from Regis Nedlands attended a local playgroup.

Bringing joy to both seniors and children, the intergenerational playgroup saw residents from Regis Nedlands share stories, songs and snacks with the next generation, while also participating in play and spending time chatting and catching up with the youngsters.

The Playgroup WA visit aimed to encourage companionship and connections between young and the old, enabling seniors to experience joy, fun and friendships, while enabling the children, who may otherwise have little interaction with seniors, to gain the opportunity to spend time with older people.

Regis Nedlands General Manager, Richard Horne, says the benefits of the program – which was organised by the Home’s Lifestyle team –extended both ways, with the children and residents involved really enjoying their time together and sharing lots of laughter.

“Older people love children, particularly little ones, as their company can help them to feel young at heart and also enables them to share stories about their own childhoods,” he says.

“Some of our residents may not see their grandchildren or great grandchildren that often and so this initiative really gives them something to look forward to.

“We very much appreciate everyone who has helped get this great intergenerational initiative with Playgroup WA off the ground.”
