It’s back to daycare for the aged care residents at Perth’s The Queenslea as a new heartwarming intergenerational program brings the young and the young at heart together for a day of laughter and shared activities.
Picture the scene: toddlers from the Ngala Early Learning and Development Service join elderly residents for a day of singing children’s songs and doing crafts.
The early learning centre is conveniently situated within the same premises as the aged care residence, where they share a courtyard. The arrangement allows both the children and the elderly to have frequent encounters and catch glimpses of each other through the fence.
Then, once a week, The Queenslea residents are graciously invited by their little Ngala “neighbours” for shared activities.
