Dorset House Nursing Home in Droitwich Spa recently welcomed the children of nearby Blue Giraffe Childcare for a heart-warming graduation ceremony. The event marked an important milestone for the youngsters while showcasing the invaluable benefits of intergenerational activities between the care home and the nursery.

A red carpet adorned the grounds of Dorset House as the young graduates donned mortarboard hats, prepared to embark on their next chapter at school. The children joyously bounced on a colourful bouncy castle, creating precious memories. The interactions between the young graduates and the residents of Dorset House were poignant to witness. The heartfelt conversations shared between the generations are a testament to the positive impact of bringing different age groups together. 
Lisa Davies, the Lifestyle Coordinator at Dorset House, emphasised:
“Intergenerational connections have a profound effect on the wellbeing of both the residents and the young children. These interactions create a sense of purpose and fulfillment for our residents, while the children benefit from the wisdom and companionship of their elders. The residents of Dorset House wish the young graduates of Blue Giraffe Childcare Droitwich the best as they join school next year!”.
