Bedtime stories at Guysfield

Guysfield Care Home in Letchworth, have introduced bed time story reading to children by the residents.

Activities lead  Margaret and Home Manager Pawel were looking for additional ways to  stimulate residents. The residents always respond well when children come to visit the Home so they wanted to find any additional way to stimulate the residents which included interaction with children, with the hope that regular visits will have a positive impact on residents physical and emotional wellbeing.

Residents, the care team and children, accompanied by parents, were invited along to the first of many of these events. Everyone doned their pajamas, to set the scene, whilst children read stories to residents who eagerly listened, and also shared snacks and engaged in conversation with them which made everyone’s evening. A lot of positive emotions and smiles were created by the visit. It not only helps the residents, but also gives the children a sense of achievement and builds their confidence reading stories in the front of others.

Home Manager Pawel said, “After seeing such a great success on the day number one we are aiming to make this a regular activity for our residents and the local children.”

Guysfield provides residential care in a beautifully converted Country House  for up to 49 elderly people in the conservation village of Willian.
