Caring for the Community

Primary 2 have been busy this term learning about who is in our community and how we can make a positive change to the lives of residents at Whitecraigs Care Home.  We designed and painted plant pots using pattern and colour, as well as designing golf balls as bright insects to make the care home Dementia garden a more calm and brightly coloured place to relax.  We were visited by nurses from Whitecraigs Care Home to sensitively learn about Dementia and how our body and mind can change as we get older.  There were lots of very good questions asked to the nurses which helped us to understand the potential thoughts, feelings, likes and dislikes of someone with Dementia.

Best of all, we walked allllllllllll the way from Crookfur Primary to Whitecraigs Care Home and got to sing songs to the residents, choose where our plant pots were going in the garden and explore the garden area.  It was a very sunny and warm day – we were very lucky!
