Bringing generations together at Knowle Park

At Knowle Park care home in Cranleigh, Surrey, we have been successfully working and building relationships with local school children from Cranleigh School who visit our home.  In 2018, we will be actively looking and developing more relationships within our local community, bridging the generation gap with the aim to bring together many different generations to bond, socialise and enjoy each others company over structured, mutually beneficial activities.

Activities Coordinator Lydia Froud said;
“I am in talks with a local nursery school who are hoping to come up and join us for some morning arts and crafts in the new year and take part in some music and Oomph sessions which will be a lot of fun. “I love the intergenerational connections we have started to build.

We already have regular Wednesday visits from the children aged between 14 and 17 from Cranleigh School who play games, bring food and visit our bed bound residents to provide company and a person to talk too.

“We have also had the Duke of Kent School visiting twice this term with a tea party of homemade cakes and a choir. We even had students playing their own music, one pianist and one guitarist who sang for us too! The residents are loving it and really engaging well with younger generations.”

At Knowle Park care home in Cranleigh, Surrey we provide excellent residential, dementia and nursing care for up to 46 elderly people.
