Care Home Residents Embrace their Musical Spirit
Heatherfield House Care Home in Armadale enjoyed a visit from artistic group Caterpillar Music. The children’s group arrived for a specialised class and embarked upon an afternoon of singing and dancing with the residents.
Intergenerational classes are a great way of bringing the community together and the activities delighted young and old alike. Residents who no longer live near children or grandchildren especially enjoyed chatting with the kids..
Heatherfield House, part of the Holmes Care Group, regularly arranges activities as part of their mission to provide outstanding care and support to the elderly.
The home was chosen as February’s winner of the #keepingresidentsactive competition run by Person Centred Software, recognising the work staff put in to ensure the residents are active and fulfilled.
Alan Bogle, resident of Heatherfield House, said: “We loved having the children visit us. It was a magical day as they bring such joy!”
Roz Smith, Activities Coordinator at Heatherfield House, said: “The day was so rewarding for our residents. It was a wonderful activity and the smiles on their faces say it all”
