Today the children had the opportunity to visit the residents in Millview Care Home with their parents. We made Easter cards for our friends and the people who work there.” The children are like a little ray of sunshine” commented one of the carer’s. We sang old familiar songs such as Ali Bali Bee and some of the songs our children have been learning from our recent Daffodil Tea.
The children can provide a source of joy for older people in our community, share affection and play, and provide assistance with many simple tasks. For the older adults in our community, they can be our greatest teachers. They can certainly share with us stories of times past and a lifetime of accumulated wisdom.
