Braywood Gardens care home in Carlton, operated by Runwood Homes, has launched its first ever Mother and Toddler group for residents and relatives.
With the aim to reduce loneliness and promote kindness in the community, the Mother and Toddler visitor group sees parents and caregivers bring their babies and children into the care home to interact with residents.
Operating every two weeks, Braywood Gardens will see many new friendships form across generations. For residents at the home, intergenerational activities can help support their emotional wellbeing.
Home Manager at Braywood Gardens, Leanne Armstrong, said: “We are overjoyed to run this fortnightly group; it will truly bring many positives benefits for our residents. It is heart-warming to see the joy shared between residents and toddlers, and we look forward to many more visits in the future.”
If you’re interested in attending the mother and toddler group, there will be no need to book in advance; contact Braywood Gardens care home for further information by calling 0115 666 2066 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
