I am often asked why bringing early years children in to residential care is so important and my reply is always, ‘so that the children can play with their friends’.
Let me share a conversation that I overheard yesterday at Warberries Care home as young children were eating lunch with the residents…
A four years olds question to his elderly friend…”If you were a superhero, what would your super power be?”
The resident thought and replied “sleeping!”
With wonderful conversations like this, how many more reasons do you need to work intergenerationally?
