Nursery Children Paint a Picture for Care Home Residents
An exciting delivery of paintings from a local nursery brought some joy to the residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home in Wigmore this week.
Residents of the Drewery Drive residential care home were overjoyed to hear the children of Happy Bunnies Nursery in Gillingham had thought of them, and had painted pictures and drawings for them.
Reaching out to the older people in their community, the children, who are 2-4 years old, made sure they sent enough pictures for every resident in the home. Of course, the residents were delighted to receive the lovely pictures in the post and were quick to start work on writing cards to send back to the children to say thank you.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “It was such a lovely gesture for the children of Happy Bunnies Nursery to think of us here at Rogers House. We’ve received a lot of community support over the past year but it has been difficult not being able to have our usual groups in to visit, so the cards definitely brought a smile to the residents’ faces.
“Contact with children brings such joy to our residents and is so beneficial for the children too, so we are hoping this may be the start of a great intergenerational relationship between them.”
