Local Care Home Partners With Local School For Enfield Intergenertional Project

Hugh Myddelton House Care Home in Southgate, have teamed up with Merryhills Primary school for an intergenerational project, connecting residents with local school children.

Residents of Hugh Myddelton House run by Barchester Healthcare, were delighted to be invited to visit Merryhills Primary school. Residents travelled in the homes mini bus and were greeted by a group of students and teachers from Merryhills Primary, who laid on a lovely tea party to celebrate Easter, afterwards they chatted and residents shared their childhood memories of Easter.

The Enfield project began during lock down and encouraged students from local schools to get creative and reach out to older people in their community by sending letters and hand drawn pictures. It was wonderful for residents and students to meet each other in person and make friends as part of the inter-generational scheme

Jade Shea, general manager at Hugh Myddelton House said: “Residents have really enjoyed sharing their stories with the young people; so many have incredible tales and they love hearing the adventures of the students. The students seem to really enjoy their time together to, they were sad when it was time for them to go back to class and asked if they could stay longer!”
