Intergenerational Connections

Roseneath Lifecare has been hosting Intergenerational Playgroups since December 2017. A group of Wairarapa Mum’s with their little ones in tow, are bringing joy to the residents at their monthly Intergenerational Play groups.

Wairarapa Coordinator, Lucy Adlam saw a need to support Mothers in the community and approached Ann Wilson, Diversional Therapist to see what could be arranged at Roseneath. Lucy then set up contacts with Mother’s through social media.

“It’s a win – win – win situation. It’s great for the social development of the children, it’s great for our residents and brings back lots of special memories, and also for the Mum’s to meet each other and have the support network. It’s a pleasure to be able to hold the playgroups in our village Hall and to see how animated our residents become when they come in contact with the babies.”
